ALESSIA GRACE MAKEUP
I'm Alessia, a Makeup Artist, Bridal Hair Stylist and Beauty Volunteer for the brilliant "Look Good Feel Better" charity.
My career in beauty over the last 10 years has evolved enormously from completing my diploma in "Special Effects Hair and Media Makeup” to gaining years of hands on experience and training within the luxury cosmetic industry.
I travelled around the country as a National Makeup Artist honing my skills whilst educating on new product launches and the most effective makeup application techniques, I developed a real passion for encouraging freedom with makeup and how to use it as a tool for self expression.
For me personally there is no better feeling than witnessing a client after sitting in my makeup chair transform with more confidence, self appreciation leaving with the understanding on what makes them look and feel good.
I have explored many different avenues in the hair & makeup world and had the opportunity to meet and train with some of the most iconic artists.
Overall nothing gives me more job satisfaction then bridal hair and makeup.
Playing such an important part on such a special day, from the trial process of carefully designing a look that reflects the bride's personality, to finally the buzz of the wedding morning and feeling the excitement in the atmosphere between loved ones.
Working on a wedding whether it may be a wedding guest, mother of the bride, bridesmaid or bride to be feels like a real privilege being trusted to prepare someone for one of the most important days in their lives.
Personally I love a more romantic and bohemian look for weddings, but for special events true Hollywood glamour is always timeless look.
As a person that is constantly on the go I view my work at times to be a form of meditation and especially enjoy the therapeutic process of creating hairstyles.
Each step that goes into achieving a look is so important to ensure it has lasting hold, compliments my client’s style and will be picture perfect.
To keep up to date with current hair trends I like to research new techniques and products, and in the near future I plan to take part in more advanced workshops to further my skills and knowledge.
Beauty and Fashion shoots are my way to explore more artistic looks.
I can use a wider variety of textures and colours and it’s exciting to see how hair, makeup and styling come together to reflect the concept and showcase a brand or personality.
