Alexa Makes Up

Introducing my best friend and makeup guru Alexa Rand, @alexamakesup:

So proud to share that I, Lana Gandler, was the one to introduce Alexamakesup to makeup.  I was 14 and she was 12, and we were in my bathroom applying makeup on each other, and I was teaching her the basics of eyeshadow.  Later that night we went to the mall to sephora and I helped her pick out her first makeup purchases. As my dad would say, I “corrupted an innocent girl with a naturally beautiful face,” but I think I introduced her to her passion.  Ever since then, she’s been a beast.

Now Alexa is the one applying makeup on me, and teaching me makeup tricks. Every year for my birthday, the only thing she really gifts me are makeup and tons of samples.  My favorite gift from her was the Mally yellow concealer in a jar from Ulta.

Back to the talent herself, Alexa gets her inspiration from Youtube and Instagram.  Her favorite brands for makeup are Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Nyx, Mally, Mac, Kat Von D, Stilla, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals Sephora, and more.

Stay beautiful,

The one and only, Lana Gandler
