What?! – I booked Alexis for my wedding a few short months ago and she arrived on-time, prepared and with my personalized face chart from our test, her own make-up chair and lighting and an armory of safety pins! How's that for organized and professional? I know not everyone's experience is the same, and there are definitely some Bridezillas out there, but they usually can't be pleased by anyone or anything. I chose Alexis because her website is beautiful (did you know she designed it herself ??) and I felt like I was getting my make-up done by an old friend during our trial. My make-up for my wedding was natural and soft and all of my bridesmaids looked equally gorgeous. She was never rude or impolite, but friendly and super calm, even when I thought the groom had seen me before the ceremony! I highly recommend booking early and scheduling a trial run to see if Alexis is right for you :)
birthday treat!!! – i've had the pleasure of working with alexis on many freelance projects and so it was a natural choice to have her do my makeup for my 25th birthday bash. not only does she use quality products like mac, nars, shu uemura, etc. but she also takes the time to evaluate each skin type and use the proper skincare to help achieve a flawless look. for my birthday she did a perfect bronze smokey-eye straight out of this month?s vogue and i couldn?t have been more impressed. very friendly and always creative!
i donno what happened – this artist did the makeup for my friend's wedding and it looked overdone and fake. i was expecting my friend's makeup to complement her features and play off her natural beauty (she's a gorgeous brunnete, big lips, big eyes) but she looked cheesy. it did not bring out her eyes, lips or skin. she looked like she had gotten ready in a big hurry or in a room where the lighting was really poor. i dont know for sure if she experienced skin irritation afterwards but i know that she didnt feel comfortable in her make up and we regretted the decsion to hire this inexperienced yet cheap artist. i recommend that you ask for references or samples of work before you commit. good rates and availability but unsatisfactory work.
Very Disappointing – I might as well had my cousin do my makeup for the wedding. I had booked with her last minute because I was on a tight budget and was not able to afford a professional from an agency. One of my friends knew her from school and said she was reasonable, but now i understand why. I would not be so upset if it wasn't for the most important day in my life. Not only did she show up late, but she was missing so many things and was so disorganized it wasn't funny. She nearly ruined my wedding, and I did not like her work at all. She has not been properly trained, and her attitude is horrible. I am doing a public service by sending this message. try to go through a proper agency you can or get recommendations from your friends. Just plain horrible work, especially for the Miami area. I have a fair skinned complexion, and her makeup irritated my skin. It also did not look well in the sunlight, and my face seemed so oily. the colors were not properly suited either. not good for a big event
Highly Recommend! – I had everything booked for my December wedding except the makeup artist. It was getting to the time when I started to panic because I could not find any makeup artist that was affordable and flexible. I randomly searched through the internet for a makeup artist in Miami and accidentally came across one of Alexis's profiles on a certain site and contacted her, not even expecting her to respond. Surprise, surprise! The response came within a few hours! When she quoted me her prices I thought there was no way she could be good. When I went to her studio she immediately put me at ease with her easygoing personality. Unlike most makeup artists she REALLY listens to what you want! I would really recommend a makeup trial to see her work so you can feel comfortable. She truly made me look and feel natural and gorgeous on my wedding day! I didn't want to look like I had on too much makeup and that is the exact look she gave me. She drove from the hotel to the ceremony and reached there just in time too because while stepping out of the limo my veil had fallen off and we did not have any way to secure it. Well, Alexis came to the rescue and amid my tears managed to fix everything. She is a real sweetheart and I would recommend her to anyone!!
Editorial Review – Professional make-up artist offering services for bridal parties, events, editorial make-up, everyday lessons or just because reasons.
LAST MINUTE BRIDE – I had just a couple of weeks till my September wedding when my make-up artist cancelled on me. Alexis worked with him and said she would like to do it since he can't. That was the best thing that could have happened. Alexis got in touch with me soon after and continued to keep in touch. I wasn't concerned about her being late or not showing up just by talking to her. Before meeting with me she called to recommend pre-wedding preparation. I had concerns because i'm fair skinned, breakout when any make-up touches my face and had an outdoor wedding. Everything came out perfect from the make-up she used for the natural sunlight to a natural look. She watched the ceremony and was there to touch up my face and wedding party for pictures afterwards. She even grabbed one of the photographer cameras and started shooting. With Alexis's help we ended up with a large spread page in Columbus Monthly magazine. Highly recommend and very reliable.
"She is the best!!" – Alexis is very professional, She created something beautiful for my wedding in Miami last month, I was so happy of having her as my make-up artist, I wanted her so bad when I first saw her profile and website, She was very nice when I spoke to her and and She really took care of all the details of what I wanted for my wedding. She even helped me with my personal vows when I was rehearsing while she was doing my make-up :) She is a very cool girl, I even invited her to stay at the wedding reception, We ended up being really nice friends. Thank you so much for your help Alexis!!! X.O.X.O.
