Alexandra Schafer always had a passion for art, colors, paint, and make-up as a teenager and she convinced her mother to pay for professional make-up classes offered at a modeling agency. That passion unwittingly got Alexandra recruited as a model and soon she was working for the likes of Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren among others.
While traveling the world and living in Milan, Paris and New York as a top model, Alexandra never let go of that original passion; whereby she had the rare opportunity to learn from the very best from the likes of Kevyn Aucoin, Francois Nars, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Frederick Fekkai, Dilder Malige and Oribe.
As Alexandra slowly stopped modeling full time, everything came full circle again when she started to do makeup and hair on set for productions in Milan, Paris, and Munich. Complimenting her extensive fashion knowledge, Alexandra has studied with the legendary actiing teachers Uta Hagen and Janet Alhanti, which makes Alexandra uniquely talented and poised to work with actors and models. Alexandra recently did makeup for the Golden Globes and The Academy Awards for 2012 and is fast making her name in Hollywood.
Alexandra now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and children and also works in the New York and Miami markets. Alexandra speaks English, German, and Italian.
