I’m a very simple woman all the way around. I do not dress up too often nor do I wear make-up to often. But when I was approached by Alexandra about making me over for my birthday, I was a bit hesitant but I knew I could trust her completely, especially with her amazing sense of style. This makeover consisted of everything from hair, makeup & wardrobe. Leaving it all in her hands, I agreed to a hair cut (yes, I gave a bit of a fight). Alexandra pulled several looks for me, which I was a bit hesitant with since it called for me stepping out of my comfort zone. She was extremely patient and open, and pulled a few more looks for me until she found the perfect outfit, making sure I was completely comfortable. She definitely pulled through with something casual yet sexy and made me feel comfortable. Makeup was just perfect! Natural yet just the right look for me. it lighten my face and I looked like another person. I loved it! I couldn’t have been more happy with everything. The compliments were endless, and even til this day when my pictures are seen, I receive compliments on how amazingly beautiful I look. Working with Alexandra was an all around great experience! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

I have to say at first I was not sure what to expect going to a makeup workshop I never went to one nor have I ever heard of one. I thought we were just going to watch the makeup artist basically put make-up on one of the ladies but to my surprise it was so much more than that.
I am definitely a make-up girl, I am all self-taught and when I really want to know something I just go to YouTube and watch tutorial videos. But the downside to that is when you have a question. I wonder if they are ever going to reply, how old is this video? Does the person even check up on it often? SO yes then you have google and a million answers can pop up and you are just more confused than ever.
Alexandra’s presentation and introduction were quite impressive from the beginning to end. She provided us with literature before we started the workshop so we knew what techniques she was going to show us. She spoke in such a manner that was very humble and professional, she wanted to share with us how she mastered the techniques of applying makeup on a daily basis as well as how to take care of our skin to keep it young and fresh. She was asked plenty of questions and was able to answer them all accurately, giving us different options on what we can do. From buying the best high-end makeup products to being able to purchase makeup products at our local drug stores such as Duane Reade / CVS. I was pretty surprised since I tend to like the high-end products.
As she went thru all the 5 steps of skin, she demonstrated and took her time to make sure we understood. The end result of her work was OUTSTANDING!! The clients face looked flawless, didn’t look like she had a lot of makeup on. The main tutorial was creating an evening smoky eye in which it was done stunning but yet simple, she NAILED it!!! (can’t wait to try my smokey eye)
She had a lot of variations of make-up from lipsticks to eye shadows, foundations, blushes etc..as well as makeup brushes which was such a SUPER PLUS. Can’t wait until I have my own workshop. I look forward to learning more of Alexandra’s makeup techniques.

I attended this makeup workshop and was super excited. I figured it was just basic makeup application. It actually wasn’t, it was so much more than what I anticipated. Alex taught us the 5 layers of skin, smokey eye and as to why we should not sleep with makeup and various beauty tips. I am excited to purchase some makeup and try these techniques on my own . Thank for the literature and your expertise I truly am thankful.

Loved the workshop! your inner beauty shined right out the whole time! Thank you for the amazing job you did! Your tips and techniques were absolutely informative. I loved the smokey eye look you did on me. I will definitely be contacting you when purchasing makeup brushes. Loll!
My goal is to share you with the rest of the world!

I had so much unexpected fun and it was such a pleasure working with Alexandra!
You never know how things are going to turn out with a make-up artist you have not met. But with Alex, it was as if I had known her for years.
The personal interest and concern she displayed in ensuring I was comfortable is remarkable!There is nothing like working with a beautiful person on the inside who desires to make YOU beautiful on the outside!
Thank you Alex for your skill, talent and kindness…..not to mention the success of making me beautiful! LOL! I look forward to us doing a lot of business together!

Alexandra Davila you did a magnificent job, thank you, thank you, and thank you. I’m not one for a lot of makeup, but I really like what you created. Between these pictures and the rave reviews, from a number of people I know who saw the makeover on News 12, all I can say is WOW, and it was well worth the wait.
I enjoyed the new look, again, thank you, thank you, and thank you for the magnificent job you did.

I had such a wonderful time on the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on October 18, for the Survivor Make Over. I felt so fortunate to be a part of this event and to have been chosen for the makeover, I felt so special. Alexandra did such beautiful work with me, especially since I had no eyebrows. My family, friends and co-workers joined me in this experience and they all said I looked beautiful! Alex is so energetic and her passion to make others feel good about themselves shows through her work.
Thank you so much! You made me feel special.
I am finally back in the office and going through all of my emails. I want to Thank You for taking the time to put together this amazing experience for our beautiful survivors. Although I was running around like a mad woman I took a few moments to make my way to your tent to see the smiles on their face. I know that what you did for them they will forever cherish. For those few hours they were able to shine and forget about this terrible disease. You brought them joy and made them look gorgeous. Below is the news 12 interview, You we amazing!
Again Thank You Alex for all that you do for the American Cancer Society and for our survivors. You are truly Amazing.

From my first inquiry I knew Alex was going to be the perfect fit. I was so glad that she could be a part of my sister’s special day! From the day we met Alex she was friendly, personable, very knowledgeable and professional. We were thrilled to meet her again on the wedding day.
On my sister’s special day, Alex showed up early smiling with excitement! She provided make-up for the bride, mother of the bride, and maid of honor. She made sure that all in the wedding party looked flawless. I’m not one for wearing makeup but after I looked in the mirror, this made me want to glam up more often. She made me look and feel gorgeous, as well as everyone in the bridal party. Alex is very skillful, our makeup lasted all day with hardly any touch-up and our photos looked spectacular.
We received many compliments from friends and family, as well as strangers from photos posted of the wedding day. Alex is great at what she does!
Hiring a makeup artist is stressful, a splurge for most, and you have to find the right fit. I couldn’t have dreamed of anything better than what she did, she is absolutely wonderful and has talent for what she does. She is a godsend to every bride!
“I would highly recommend her for your makeup needs – she’s worth it!”
