Melody’s Favorite Things – Skin Care

These are all products I use in my daily routine and recommend to my clients and friends! All of these products are earth and plant based with quick results. The best part is because they are so powerful, you need very little of each product for it to work it’s magic! If it comes in a bottle form with a pump, all you need is one pump for your whole face. Want a little extra for your neck and chest? Just use a half pump!

When end you are taking proper care of your skin, it makes such a big difference in how your make up goes on and wears throughout the day. I always say, you can have the best make up in the world, but if you aren’t taking proper care of your skin, it won’t matter.

Don’t hesitate to send me a message with any questions or if you need help purchasing products. 🙂

Wedding Season!!

Hello Beauty’s!

Don’t wait until the last minute to book for your special event! I book 10-24 months in advance and I am already almost booked for 2019 and am booking into 2020!

Okay, ladies! It’s time to talk about skin care!! Even if you don’t have a big event coming, it is so important to take proper care of your skin! There are a few questions you need to ask yourself about your current skin care routine:

1. Do I have a skin care routine?

2. Is what I am doing giving me the results I’m looking for?

3. Are the products I am using giving me the results I’m looking for?

4. Am I consistent?

5. How is my diet affecting my skin?

6. Do I drink at least 8 glasses of water a day?

7. Are the supplements I’m taking working?


Let’s get together and work on these things together! Send me an email with what you need help with and your schedule. We will set up a time to meet and I’ll help you move forward!

Dont have time to meet? We can do everything over email! Just let me know what you need and how I can help!


I look forward to helping you bring out your healthy , beautiful skin!




Motives Favorites!

Welcome to Melody Sopa Artistry!  I cannot wait to share my favorite Motives products with you!




For for those who don’t know, I have been a professional make up artist for 8 years. I have corporate training from national artists from companies like MAC, Laura Mercier, Smashbox, Bare Essentials, and Chanel. I have tried it all and worn it all. Because of my experience in the beauty industry, I believe I have a great understanding of what works best for myself and my clients. Not all make up is created equal and not all make up is meant to be photographed, either. So when it comes to hiring an experienced professional make up artist, know you are getting your money’s worth! (I’ll make a post about what it takes for a freelance artist to stay in business and why prices are what they are).

I came across Motives Cosmetics not too long ago and fell in love! The products are super pigmented, soft, creamy, and just fabulous! They are pro quality, yet anyone can use it without having that artistry experience. It’s awesome for everyday wear and even better worn in front of the camera. I’d say 95% of my professional make up kit is now Motives.
