Speaking about her work, Alexys says: ‘Makeup is more than just a perception of beauty, it is used to make people feel confident, or make them into a completely new character. You can be whatever you put your mind to in the world of art, but most importantly, always be yourself.

‘I ended up becoming more and more interested in make-up through out high school. There really was no specific reason why I began, other than to relieve stress. Before this, I used to draw and paint. I figured, hey, if I can draw on paper, I can draw on faces.

‘I draw inspiration from everywhere. More often than not, I draw inspiration from dreams that I have.

‘I have always had a very vivid imagination, and extremely realistic dreams.’
