ALESSIA GRACE MAKEUP
Hi I'm Alessia, a Makeup Artist, 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 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 watching a client transform with confidence, after sitting in my makeup chair and leaving with the understanding on what makes them look and feel good.
I have explored the different avenues within the hair & makeup world and had the opportunity to meet and train with some of the most iconic artists.
Working in the wedding industry whether it may be a wedding guest, mother of the bride, or the bride to be feels like a real privilege to prepare someone for such an important day.
Overall the satisfaction that comes from completing the final touches for a bride on her wedding is unmatched to me as an artist.
l love being a part of such a special event, 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.
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 to be a form of meditation and enjoy the therapeutic process of styling hair and creating different looks. 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'm always researching new styling techniques and testing out a variety of products.
In the near future I plan to further my skills and take part in more advanced workshops.
I believe you can never stop learning in the everchanging world of beauty.
Beauty and Fashion shoots are my way of creating more artistic looks. I often use a wider variety of textures and bolder colours.
It is exciting to see how hair, makeup and styling come together to reflect the concept and showcase a brand or personality.

I look forward to hearing from you,
