Born and raised in a sleepy midwestern town, it was difficult to fathom fashion, art, and make-up as more than what was locally scoured at Wal-Mart. Still, around 1998 Alexis was fortunate enough to become involed in her high school theatre troupe and a passion and curiosity for make-up ensued. Aside from her photography and theatre background, Alexis studied at the Make-up Designory in Los Angeles and shortly thereafter teamed up with cosmetics giant M.A.C. to further diversify herself and hone her asethetics skills. A difficult route taken by many well known make-up artists even today; it proved absolutely crucial to Alexis' development. In a little over two years she had worked on thousands of skin tones, textures and types. Numerous men and women, from every kind of attitude and background. What this gave Alexis even more than experience, was an appreciation of different kinds and levels of beauty.
Today you can find Alexis conjuring up new creations in the studio, sweating it out on location or putting the final romantic touches on a blushing bride-to-be. When she's not obsessing over lash curls or eyebrow hairs, she takes to the open road or adventurous travels to keep her mind and creative antics fresh.
On her artistry, Alexis says "There's a great freedom when you have your feet in two so called mutually exclusive worlds: The world of irony, and the world of soul, The world of flesh, and the world of spirit, The world of surface and the world of depth."

Edgy yet refined bridal makeup
I worked with Alexis for my bridal makeup in April 2019. It was a challenge to find a makeup artist who could create an edgy yet refined bridal look and Alexis delivered. I was very impressed by the contouring, she highlighted my best features and the blend looked completely natural. My eye makeup was dramatic and beautiful, and she brought a variety of lashes to choose from. I went with her suggestion on the lashes and was very pleased with the final look. The makeup wore all day and night and looked stunning in pictures. Alexis was very responsive during the consultation process and was able to plan my dream look remotely and execute it flawlessly on the first application. If you are seeking an upscale, creative artist to pamper you and give you a gorgeous bridal look, don’t hesitate to work with Alexis, she’s exceptional!Sent on 06/16/2019

Beautiful flawless makeup! We did a trial run before the wedding to test out colors and make-up. Airbrush is available for long lasting coverage, though I chose regular make-up for a more natural look. Alexis is so fun and easy to work with and comes to your location for the big day. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!Sent on 09/07/2010
