On From Marva with Love, I had the pleasure of interviewing Melissa R. Hibbert Celebrity Make-Up Artist/Influencer/Entrepreneur. Jamaican born Beauty Expert Melissa R. Hibbert’s love affair with all things glam has earned her the title of being the “go to” Beauty Expert and Professional Make-Up Artist for celebrity, corporate and private clients alike.

A frequent guest Beauty Expert on The Real, Melissa R Hibbert is the CEO of The Glam Agency: the premier multicultural talent management firm represents leading Make-Up Artist, Hair Stylists, Fashion Stylists, Manicurists, Beauty Bloggers and Lifestyle Experts. She is also the Founder of SHEEQ Cosmetics, a Luxury Make-Up and Skincare brand for the Discerning Women.

MS: Tell us a little about your background?

MRH: My background in beauty started at a very early age when I was about 11 or 12 when I discovered my very first tube of lipstick and it inspired me to really understand and pursue my fascination in beauty.

So I decided to go to beauty school while I was in high school. I got my diploma and my beauty certificate at the same time. But I also had a desire to go to college.

I went to Fisk University, an HBCU. All throughout college, I did hair and makeup. After college, I moved to New York and worked in corporate America. I worked my way up to working for some of the biggest brands in the Country. I was still moonlighting doing hair and makeup. Beauty has always been a part of my life. When I decided it was time to step away from the boardroom in corporate life, I had to take a step back and realize that my real passion was in beauty.

So I took a little bit of a vacation I call it my sabbatical and focused on the transition from working in the corporate world to Beauty Entrepreneurship and within a month I was able to transition taking what I had in savings and my 401k to start my business.

MS: When you were working in corporate America were you with the beauty industry?

MRH: No. When I was in corporate America, I was working primarily in Brand Marketing, promotions and entertainment marketing. I concentrated on branding promotions and events.

Melissa R. Hibbert has gone on to expand her businesses and she has now written her first book, Face Your Beauty. She will be touring with her new book and will in Dallas, TX in November. There is so much more to my interview with Melissa R. Hibbert.
