Hi i'm Alessia, a Makeup Artist, Hair Stylist and Beauty Volunteer for the Look Good Feel Better charity.
My career in beauty over the last 12 years has evolved so much, from completing a diploma in Special Effects Hair & Media Makeup to travelling the country as a
National Makeup Artist educating on new product launches and teaching my clients the best makeup techniques.
I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most iconic artists in the industry such as Francois Nars, Terry DeGunzburg and Val Garland gaining years of invaluable experience within luxury cosmetics.
It is so important for me to stay current with new hair & makeup trends that are ever changing. I am a real product junkie and love to research all things beauty. Within the hair & makeup world I have explored different avenues from photo shoots,
special effects Halloween parties and makeup lessons/ workshops to name a few.
I don’t like to limit myself to just one style and pride myself on being a versatile artist, but if I had to choose the most rewarding it would have to be the Bridal industry.
From designing the perfect look in the trial, to the buzz of the wedding morning and feeling the excitement in the air amongst loved ones is such a privilege to be a part
The whole process of perfecting the makeup to styling the hair creating each step that achieves the final look ensuring it will last all day and will be picture perfect.
Personally I love a more romantic and bohemian look for weddings, but for special events true Hollywood glamour is always such a timeless look.
The volunteering work I have done with the “Look Good Feel Better” charity is an experience like no other and seeing the power of makeup and male grooming transform even the most vulnerable of clients is a very humbling process to witness
and confirms to me why I love what I do so much -
Making others look and feel the best version of themselves.
