Melvin Tseng On How He Started Experimenting With Makeup

When Melvin’s boyfriend, Han, surprised him with a Morphe x James Charles palette 6 months ago, nobody expected Melvin to begin his journey as a MUA.

As a full-time film maker & editor with loving the art of makeup, Melvin sees things with a creative eye and come up with fresh makeup looks. As someone who just barely got started, Melvin is excited for his journey.   

“This journey has just begun for me and I have so much more to show!”

If you have to describe your MUA journey in one word, what would it be & why?

Crazy. It’s definitely been a crazy journey for me, I mean crazy in good way. I started makeup only 6 months ago, and to have had the opportunity to work with amazing Brands such as, Sephora, Benefit Cosmetics, Universal Music, FoodPanda and many more, so all of this just sounds so crazy to me. I also crossed 20,000 followers and almost 300K likes on TikTok in 4 months which to me is just so wild!

Who would you say is your inspiration for most of your makeup looks?

Most of my inspiration for all my looks actually come from the way I feel! As a Dancer, I am always keeping with new music and Music just has a way of inspiring me! Secondly, none of my ideas would be able to be executed with the help of my Boyfriend - Han! He is honestly the most supportive and literally helps me with everything behind the scenes, so his views and perspectives also play a huge role in my makeup looks and inspirations!

Your favourite look.

It’s hard to decide my favourite look! But if I have to choose one, it would be ice and fire moment from my most recent look! 

Your most memorable look.

I feel like I have 2 memorable looks! One is the PRIDE LOOK I did for Pride 2020! And the other one would be my first DRAG transformation look!

What would be the only 1 makeup item you cannot live without? Why?

One makeup item I personally cannot live without would be brow pencil! I literally wouldn’t need anything else! Just a snatched brow and I’m good to go!
