  • #tbt to a couple weeks ago in NYC where @blackradiancebeauty celebrated their new web series #MUAtalks highlighting MUAs in the industry as they share insight on what it means to be a MUA of color. We touch basis on the highlights, the struggles, the things we have learned, and the triumphs we’ve achieved. I had the pleasure of personally inviting @goldenchild_313 @africamiranda @khadeeniam @danieandthebloom @simonelewismua as my plus 5, and I’m so appreciative of their love and support over the years. Shouts out to my fellow MUAs featured in this series @jacenbowman @rebelfaces_ @faceit_islay and @mrstam_mua (who was not in NYC), I think we created something that all brands should be focusing on and hopefully they take the lead from @blackradiancebeauty. Thank you @lrgregg for this platform and for selecting us out of thousands of MUAs. I love that they focus on the artist behind the makeup and not just the makeup or the influencers, we are who create and deliver these trends that cultivate or culture and industry 😘. Stay tuned next for the ATLANTA edition, coming soon!!!!! #blackradiancebeauty #brbeauties #themuaalex

  • So these past 24 hours have been simply INCREDIBLE... I had the distinct honor and pleasure of glamming up The powerful, beautiful, strong, steadfast, and inspiring Pastor @grayceeme 🙌🏾🙏🏾😍. I really enjoyed spending the day with her, she’s so sweet, down to earth, accommodating and GORGEOUS 😘. I then had the pleasure of sitting through ✌🏾 services at THE @myrelentlesschurch as @realjohngray preached two amazing sermons. I really felt the Holy Spirit in that church (was fighting back tears), and their worship service lead by @tashacobbsleonard was something I never experienced before... (head to my story for an embarrassing story about how I eventually realized @tashacobbsleonard was in the BUILDING 🤦🏾‍♀️😩🤣). As I’m waiting to board my flight, I truly feel extremely blessed and inspired to do great things, especially within these next few weeks as I prepare for the biggest opportunity of my makeup career to date 😳🥴. SN- @grayceeme Makeup was applied at 7:30AM... these pics were taken at approx 1PM after two services, shouting, praising, eating, crying, and sanging!!! My paint doesn’t move PERIOD lol. #makeupbyalex #atlmua #themuaalex #aventergray #relentlesschurch #themuaalexnewclient

  • Then I got the chance to do a little male grooming on Vanessa’s fiancé as they both headed to their photoshoot. Power couple moves for sure. Super proud of you guys with your new brokerage and real estate company, TAKE OVER!!! ✊🏾 Male grooming for me is evening out the skin, color correcting hyperpigmentation, eliminating shine, and filling in beards/mustaches so there’s no empty spots. #makeup #makeupbyalex #mua #atl #atlmua #atlantamua #atlanta #malegrooming #themuaalex #themuaalexnewclient

  • April 1st is around the corner, businesses DON’T FORGET to register your business with the Secretary of State... renewals are due by April 1st or they will charge you a late fee... This is one of the MANY things that will be discussed in my A Beautiful Face 104 class... COMING SOON!!!!!! It’s all fun and games learning about eyebrows and lipgloss until you’re non compliant with your state. And every business, if registered, will show on the state’s Secretary of State Business Search page if they are compliant, it’s all public knowledge. We have to handle our business affairs before anything business owners... #abeautifulface104 #themuaalex #thebusinesssideofmakeup

  • Now that I’ve had some rest from my very quick turn around trip to NYC, I can now speak on the amazingness that went down yesterday. Yesterday @blackradiancebeauty debuted our inspiring project called #muatalks which features BTS footage, conversations, and kekeying amongst myself @mrstam_mua @jacenbowman @rebelfaces_ @faceit_islay. We filmed in LA last summer and have been patiently awaiting its arrival. Yesterday was so amazing because most of us came together to celebrate this beautiful opportunity and amongst the crowd were our friends, fellow MUAs, media outlets, influencers, bloggers, and anyone who wanted to be in the know. We had delicious food, flowing champagne, product giveaway, and great music with laughs. I’m so blessed to have an amazing support system starting with my BFF of 17 years who I was blessed to spend the past two days with, my love @goldenchild_313. And my fraaaaanndss @africamiranda @danieandthebloom and @simonelewismua were also in the building showing their love and support as always. And finally, my boss beauty @khadeeniam who we haven’t laid eyes on one another since she took my Philly makeup class about 6 years ago, but she came and supported the kid, which really warmed my heart. Ladies you rock, and I’m so blessed to have been rollin wit y’all for some years now. Thank you for supporting me. I was also finally able to meet fellow dope MUAs @billieegene and @keys_rebelle whose worked I’ve been admiring from afar 😍. But a HUGE thank you is owed to @lrgregg of @blackradiancebeauty who hand picked me out of so many MUAs to be the lead of their 2019 campaign. You guys have made my dreams come true working with such a professional and positive brand who loves to showcase black beauty and now more specifically, the black MUAs of the world, because we do lack recognition. I’m excited about #muatalks and can’t wait til APRIL 4th, when you guys bring this event to ATLANTA!!! 🤸🏽‍♀️😍🙌🏾. ATL we gotta show em how we put on for our city, dirty souf style 😛. Check out my stories and live before they expire and stay tuned for more amazingness coming soon. #blackradiancebeauty #themuaalex #muatalks#mua #muasunite #nyc#nycmuas #atl #atlmua

  • Here’s a better look@of the smokey halo eye I did on @shamaridevoe. It kinda looks like it has a little green in it 🤷🏾‍♀️. But I wanted a dramatic smokey eye, flirty lashes, flawless skin, and a nude pink lip. What y’all think??? I haven’t seen the episode so how did it look on tv? 😬😍 #makeupbyalex #ATLmua #themuaalex #shamaridevoe #rhoa

  • Spent yesterday morning with this beauty, one of my favorites THE @1crystalnicole who let me try something totally different on her today 😬, a bold dark lip!!!! I also placed her lashes differently to give her eyes a more cat like/fierce look so she can be sickening during her photoshoot. She was feeling the look so much we had to snatch her ponytail together for a little moment hunny lol. Love spending time with this lady, have fun today beautiful. #makeup #makeupbyalex #mua #atl #atlmua #atlantamua #atlanta #beauty #themuaalex #crystalnicole

  • I can’t wait for the day... that when I say my rate, there won’t be a hassle, a negotiation, a deal in the works, a “you’re too expensive”, or a “that’s too high for Atlanta...” Yes, it still happens to me ladies and gents... But I’ve always been taught to stand on what I believe in, and that is MYSELF... I know my worth. I know what it took to get to where I am, the trials and tribulations, the struggles, the long nights, the doors slammed in my face, the politics, the thousands of dollars of makeup, the thousands of hours of working, my degree, alluv dat! It doesn’t help when the industry cheapens itself and charges such low rates because that permits clients to expect low rates 🤷🏾‍♀️🙄. But the day that I can say my rate and there’s no push back, THAT WILL BE THE DAY!!! Until then, THANK YOU EVERYONE who has just paid the rate, smiled, tipped, showed up on time, enjoyed the experience, told someone else, etc... love y’all for real. #atlmua #themuaalex

  • Just now tuning into #RHOA and I see a few looks I recognize. First look is this beautiful olive green number on @shamaridevoe as she met with the girls following up the aftermath of Nene’s “Bye Wig” party. Cute little daytime paint with some glowing skin. #makeupbyalex #atlmua #themuaalex #shamaridevoe

  • Just watched #RHOA and I caught my paint on my lovely, gorgeous and fun beauty @shamaridevoe. I must admit, I am partly to blame for her drunkenness because we did engage in cocktails before she left my house 😬 lol. I love that she’s fun, loyal, young, fresh, bold, funny, supportive, and down to earth. The best addition to the group IMO... Loved the “no weave” theme of @neneleakes’s party too... #makeupbyalex #atlmua #shamaridevoe #themuaalex
