My name is Alexandria Kelly Grammas; My friends and family call me Allie! I am a recent graduate from Fairfield University with a Bachelor’s of Arts in International Studies and a Minor in Business Management. Enough with the boring stuff, though… More importantly, I have a love for life and a love, for love. I have always embedded this passion inside of me for creativity, something that has always come to me effortlessly. I often feel as though I better express myself through art, whether it be with words, makeup or photography, than I do with my own voice. Hence, I found the inspiration to create Blushing in Bloom as an outlet where people can come to feel inspired, and feel beautiful.
I am a proud dog mom to my Pomeranian, Leo. My boyfriend and I have had him for about a year and a half. He is my entire life, and I love him as though he is my child. I have a passion for makeup, photography, the outdoors, fitness, beauty, fashion, traveling and food. I am a major foodie and there is nothing I appreciate more than a delicious meal with quality ingredients. Growing up in a Greek household, my days have always revolved around food and planning what my next meal is going to be.
Another important thing you should know about me is that I thrive off relationships. I love people, and think that there is nothing more important in one’s life than to feel love, and be loved. I appreciate and cherish my relationships with my friends and family, and have a very tight-knit circle. Nothing is more important to me than my relationships with those I hold dear and close to my heart. Meeting new people in the makeup industry has been an absolute blessing. I am thankful for my friends and family supporting me throughout this journey and giving me the outlets necessary to share my passion with the world.
Makeup Artistry is something I have been practicing for the last five years, and is a talent that I will continue to work at my entire life. Each and every client of mine is beautiful without makeup. I truly believe that makeup should be used to enhance one’s natural beauty and not change their appearance to make them unrecognizable. My signature look includes natural, warm tones around the eyes, while adding a subtle contour and highlight to frame the face. Beauty comes from within, which is why my goal is to leave each and every client of mine glowing.
