“The most beautiful makeup for a woman is passion. But cosmetics are cheaper to buy.”
— Yves Saint Laurent
I’m Danni Alexandra, an award winning, freelance professional makeup artist, based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
I studied art before becoming an MUA. I then trained with Jemma Kidd and Ginni Bogado in fashion and media makeup in Knightsbridge, London. I returned North and worked for SpaceNK in Manchester and Harrogate before starting my own freelance business. I also studied SFX makeup with Pamela Clare. I believe this is an industry we can never stop learning in with the constant changes in fashion and trends so I attend many masterclasses with companies such as MAC cosmetics.
I am also a graduate of Makeup Mastered 2017 where I was mentored by the worlds leading professionals such as Alex Box, Mynxii White, Tom Pecheux and many more.
To say I love my job would be an understatement!
Being creative every day of my working life is so important to me and I embrace any project I’m lucky enough to be part of.
I don’t believe every day makeup should be about wearing a mask, we should be accentuating our natural beauty and features and letting our confidence shine through.
I love working one on one with clients as well as amazing teams on photo shoots or general media work. There’s nothing in makeup I won’t turn my hand to!
I’ve been lucky to work alongside some incredible people in my career from the UK to worldwide and I hope to continue my passion and apply my skills for many more years to come.
