ABOUT ALEX

Hello there!  Alex Paul Artistry is a makeup and lash studio based in Regina, Saskatchewan/Treaty 4 land.  My full name is Alexandra Paulette Barabe, which is where my brand name has evolved from.  I have always been passionate about makeup since I was a child having "makeover" playdates with friends and then practicing stage makeup in my many years as a competitive dancer.  I graduated high school in 2014 with intentions on pursuing a linear career path and attending university, but my heart has always longed for a creative career path, which inevitably brought me where I am today.

My artistry is a mixture of using products and methods that I trust and adding an element of individuality to every look depending on my client. My goal is to have you leaving my chair feeling fresh faced, glamorous, and a beautifully enhanced version of you.  My style of makeup artistry is skin that is glowing, warm, and dimensional and brows that are soft but defined.  Neutral, smoked out shadows with a pop of shimmer on the lids, feathery lashes, and natural, satiny lips are all of my go-to's! 

Alex Paul is built on inclusiveness, education, and collaboration.  I strive to showcase women from all walks of life in my portfolio and ALWAYS have products for all shade ranges on hand.  I pride myself on the knowledge I possess in makeup and lash lifting techniques and tricks I have developed over my years and I am passionate about sharing that knowledge with you. 

Education:

Alex completed the Elle Ebana lash lift and tinting certification in July of 2017. Prior to that, she took Face By Meagan's makeup artistry course in February of 2017. More recently in March of 2020, she took Mady Kennedy's 3 week online artistry course covering topics from cut creases to illusion makeup to social media.  Alex then completed Morgan Fay's The Signature Look online course in April of 2020.

Aside from the courses she takes, Alex is committed to self teaching and is constantly learning new techniques, trends, and product knowledge throughout her career. It is very important that her artistry continues to grow and evolve and the beauty industry is always changing.
