Please note: Despite not taking bookings since the pandemic hit in March 2020, I am starting to selectively consider taking appointments again, working from my home studio in Glasgow City Centre. (Updated March 2022).
Born and raised in Oxford, England, I moved to Scotland to study Visual Communication: Illustration at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2008. I translated my compositional and artistic skills into the makeup industry with my MUA debut at Urban Decay in 2009. Thirsty for more creative, off-piste development, I was hired to Illamasqua, where I worked in both Glasgow, London and Croatia. My training at Illamasqua was extensive and put me in good stead to go freelance on Valentine's Day in 2013. I have never looked back. Sometimes I rent a chair in a beauty salon for a while, as I do love that community spirit, and sometimes I solely do shoots and homers. My YouTube channel 'Your Place To Space' is a wonderful portal for my art, craft, tattooing and makeup videos. Makeup clients from the past include Rainbow Rooms International, Lipcote, BBC, John Cale (The Velvet Underground), Mungo Gurney, Congorock & Nom De Strip.
What my clients say…
I thoroughly recommend Alexandra to work her magic for any occasion. She is professional, creative and highly skilled. Her artistic ability can transform a face to rival any oil painting. Alexandra's friendly manner ensures that you not only look but feel a million dollars.
