Hello world!

Hi! I’m Alexandria and it’s a pleasure to meet you 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m happy to have you here. 
 
People ask me all the time where I went to school to be a makeup artist. To be honest, I never ‘went to makeup school’. I went to cosmetology school for hair but to be a good makeup artist, I believe you just have to have the eye for it. Go to as many classes and makeup schools you want, the eye for makeup can not be taught, it’s within you 😉 It’s something you just have..
Through experience I’ve learned I definitely have my own style of makeup. I’m in to beautiful skin. I like to give the skin lots of glow and smooth, soft texture. I love to highlight the skin. I think this is what my brides love the most about my style of makeup. I won’t cover you up by masking you with makeup, but even your skin tone, highlighting your best features and enhance your look. 
I love big lashes, sharp brows and a strong contour.. To achieve this look its really important to already have healthy, glowing skin. Make sure you eat clean, drink tons of water and take care of your skin by cleansing daily and using weekly masks. 
If you look at top models and celebrities, notice they don’t look like a made-up doll.. They have a natural skin tone with fresh skin thats glowing, and not sculpted like crazy with makeup products. When you wear makeup, you want it to look minimal so your skin looks radiant.
I’m constantly learning through experience and working with other professional makeup artists. There is ALWAYS room for improvement, no matter what you do. I love makeup, I’m constantly getting inspired, and coming up with new ideas and looks. It’s a great feeling to have a growing clientele and hearing your peers talking positively about your work and supporting you!
I will be posting weekly about tips, advice, home remedies, and much more! I’ll be having give aways of samples of my favorite products, so please stay tuned!
Thank you so much for checking out my blog, I’m new at this so bare with me 🙂

I’m Alexandria, a 22 year young, New York based makeup artist making a name for myself in the fashion & beauty industry. I’ve always been the type of person to go after my dreams. I always loved art growing up, and for me makeup became my art. I consider myself a beauty therapist, tea drinking, event coordinating, very quirky, karma believing, yoga practicing, animal lover who adores fashion, nature, traveling and experiencing what life has to offer! I’m very hard working and have even received awards for it! I have raised over 30 thousand for charities including art scholarship funds, and St. Jude Children’s research hospital. I’m here to share my business, makeup tips, skin care advice, fundraising tips & ideas, local businesses and places I love, what really goes on behind the scenes as a makeup artist, my personal experiences & travels, beauty pointers to my clients, brides, friends, family, and any others that are interested in reading! I have tried, tested, succeeded, loved, disliked, and failed many, many products and brands over the past couple years. I will share them all with you, hoping you can enjoy some of the products I obsess and avoid buying some that I haven’t loved. I’m so lucky many of my favorite companies, brands and businesses have contributed to my blog and donated products for myself and others to share and review. <3
