She frequently works with brides, helping them select the perfect beauty look for their big day – and has picked up plenty of trade tricks and secrets for those preparing to walk down the aisle and wanting to perfect their beauty prep.

JOVANI: Tell us a little bit about how you first got into makeup, and about your journey to where you are today.

Happy Friday, Jovani fans! Today is all about embracing your personal style and loving the skin you are in. To show us the light, we’ve invited personal style guru Melanie Kluger from Head Over Heels with Melanie to dish on how you can find your inner style and dress your personal best. JOVANI: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your business. What inspired you to start Head Over Heels with Melanie and The Confident Closet? MELANIE: Hi there! I’m Melanie Kluger, personal stylist, closet connoisseur, and creator of Head Over Heels with Melanie.
