Hey All!

Let me introduce myself... I'm Heidi Alexa, a make up artist and hair stylist from Southampton in the UK. I'm in my final year at Southampton Solent University studying BA(Hons) Make Up & Hair Design for Music, Film and Photography.

I plan to document my work as a make-up artist and blog things that have inspired me.

To begin with, let me show you some of my work so far and tell you what I have done up until now.

I have started with this one because it has caught a lot of attention on my ModelMayhem profile, so I'm rather proud of it. It was 'Barbie' inspired and I wanted to have a close up with intensity.
Photographer: Michael Roscoe. Model: Holly Adderley.

This image was shot for my friend Polly Knight. She studies within Fashion at the same uni and this one was military inspied. I went for purple/black eyes for a crazed look.

This is a tearsheet from Nuts Magazine this month (February 2010) Model: Chloe Farnworth. Photographer: Julia Underwood.
My first glamour make up and hair job... and it got published :D wooo!!

This was for another Fashion student, Laura Camfield. The theme was animals and we got some awesome images. This model was stunning and so nice to work with, if only she lived nearer. Unfortunately, I don't have her name but I will try to get it!
