Manhattan, Brooklyn, Hamptons
I'm Alexa, bridal, celebrity, and event makeup artist and makeup teacher in NYC. Born as the product of a hairstylist and sculptor, I have forever been conditioned to view the world through beauty and art. Makeup is my art form that I use to reveal a light within a person. I believe it's not about painting on a face, it's about using this art to enhance features and smiles. When I was young, I was obsessed with movies and TV shows with total makeover "transformations"... Cinderella, The Princess Diaries, What Not to Wear... The coolest part of these transformations for me was the realization that these makeovers were transforming these people from the inside. It was like magic- what a good makeup and hair could do to provide the confidence to step into a new role as a human being. To take on life in a different way. I am passionate about evoking a new sense of confidence within my brides to allow them to live the best day of their life completely fearless. My team and I pay special care and attention working with each one of our brides, pairing your vision and our professional expertise to give you a customized, tailored look that you truly feel comfortable and like you in. We want your makeup to reflect the best version of you and whatever the story or vision is that you want to play a part in for the day. We value skin that looks like skin and enhanced eyes that pop. If this sounds like you - give us a shout!
