It all depends on the time you’re getting married. I mostly do groups of 3-6. However I can do larger group bookings too even groups of up to 12 before. Id just need an assistant to help me that date

The red carpet treatment

Alex did my makeup for my son’s wedding following a trial. During the trial Alex’s choices were spot on and I really liked the look The wedding day started with a nerve racking morning but Alex completely put me at ease. I felt like a movie star instead of a 50 year old mum and I had so many comments about my makeup. Thank you Alex I felt so glamorous. I wish I could make myself look like that maybe I need to book a makeup lesson next?

Fantastic make up by a lovely lady!

Alexandra did wedding make up for myself, my mum and my 4 bridesmaids and everybody loved it. She matched the make up to my request but also to fit the preferences and age of each person. The make up lasted all day and was really comfortable. She is so lovely and I would recommend in a heartbeat.

Amazing artist and so lovely to be around

Alex is an incredible make up artist. She did wedding guest make up for myself, my sister in law and my mother in law and was the sweetest person ever. She has an amazingly extensive kit and asked all the right questions to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. Our make up was amazing, she is so talented. She could do any style and nothing was too much. I couldn’t find anyone to do my hair for the day so Alex stepped in and did it herself. Nothing was too much for her.

bridesmaid makeup

I have lupus so need good make up to cover the red rash on my skin (cheeks and nose etc). Alex did an amazing job and it stayed on all day. She asked exactly what i wanted which was natural and dewy. Everyone said I looked amazing. I wish I could do my make up like it everyday! She also did false eyelashes which I've only ever had once before and they stayed on too and look great on the photos. thank you.

Stress Free

I contacted Alex via Instagram and booked her for a friends wedding in Derby. Booking was super easy and on the day she asked me what I wanted and gave me exactly that. She even gave me a little too up kit for the day and night, which came in need!!
