Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Alex and I am a professional makeup artist based in Bristol, specializing in bridal makeup and lessons.
Originally from Florida, I moved to the UK and began my career in 2014 - training in Theatrical & Media Makeup at City of Bristol College. I then spent several years working for MAC Cosmetics, where I became certified through their training program. During my time working for MAC, I became a part of the Pro Team and had the opportunity to work with leading industry experts and worked events like IMATS in London. I absolutely love what I do, and making people feel good about themselves is what I love the most! 


I am salon based in Bristol for all bridal trials and lessons. For weddings, I cover all areas of Bristol and surrounding areas within the South West and beyond. For destination weddings, please use the contact form to request a quote.

My freelance kit includes professional quality, luxury makeup brands such as MAC, NARS, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Huda Beauty, Urban Decay, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, and Dior. All makeup services are tailored to the client's preferences and include a complimentary pair of professional quality lashes.
