"Makeup is all about individuality and one's form of expression. Working for shu uemura has given me the opportunity to experience many types of beauty, and as an artist for shu uemura I have always taken great pride in the fact that we help women feel beautiful. As a makeup artist, I've helped create beautiful faces for over 10 years, and I believe there are no rules or boundaries, just endless possibilities."

Although Alexia's skills have been called on by many of the celebrities, VIP's and fashion designers in the world, it is her love of working with everyday women that inspires her daily as a makeup artist. "I am inspired by the world around me, whether it's culture, nature, film and friends. Life experience can be your greatest inspiration. The most important tools are my instinct, eyes, hands, heart?and some great shu uemura brushes don't hurt either."
