MasterChef’s Melissa Leong reveals the secret to keeping her lipstick on during taste tests and defends her love of ‘loud’ fashion – after her $25,000 wardrobe was revealed

Melissa Leong is known for her incredible style on MasterChef Australia: Back To Win. 

The 40-year-old appeared on The Sunday Project this weekend and revealed the secret behind keeping her signature red lipstick on during taste tests. 

The chef laughingly told the panel: ‘I think it’s a combination of having gigantic lips and they stay out of the way during the food eating process, great long wearing lipstick and having a great make-up artist just off side of stage.’

When it comes to her sometimes criticised unique fashion sense, Melissa was unapologetic. 

‘I’ve always loved really loud accessories, especially when… I’m on TV. Because I think it commands attention and allows you to draw people into what you’re doing and what you’re on about. 

‘We have the most amazing teams of people on MasterChef and our styling team is incredible. We have this wonderful collaborative spirit of, ‘No, bigger, brighter, boulder, more colourful!”
