Alexandra

I’ve always been an artistic person. As a child, you couldn’t get me out of the art center during class and as I grew older, I was obsessed with drawing faces and shading their dimensions. In middle school, I would steal my sister’s makeup (I think after 15 years it’s okay to finally admit that I took it and hoarded it in secret). And in high school, I had an assembly line of fellow cheerleaders waiting for me to do their makeup come competition day. I guess it just came naturally for me and in hindsight, it makes perfect sense for me to be here doing makeup today.

I’ve been very blessed to travel to places I once could only dream of and throughout my travels, I have been able to see a blend of different cultures, walks of life, and ideal depictions of beauty. I aim to bring that across in my work, both in the way my clients look but also in how they feel when they leave my chair.

I began my career in college, doing makeup for various musicals and plays, volunteering for charities, and using my friends as willing guinea pigs on nights out. Over the past four years, I have assisted major artists such and invested in my education to really help my skills come full circle. I do makeup for an array of events including red carpets (including Maisie Williams for the Boston Premiere of Game of Thrones), live performances, weddings, and of course, photoshoots for commercial purposes. Every day I get to live my dream and fall in love with it over again.
