Alex Babsky Makeup Artist

Some people get starstruck by celebrities... not me, makeup artists are my A listers.
Back in the days of working the M.A.C Pro Store on Newburgh Street, I knew every single make-up artist that walked through that iron gated door. 
I knew the ones to avoid and the ones that I just wanted to serve in the hope that a little bit of their magical talent might transfer during the exchange of PPID Cards and eyeshadows. 
Of course none of them knew me, which is a great gauge of character... and also makes me sound like a mental stalker!
Alex Babsky is an exceptionally talented make-up artist and i'm pleased to say was always very lovely to me, the minion. 
I can't really tell you much more than that, a google search didn't throw up so much as a profile picture but you can see his amazing work below and more on the Frank Agency website or say 'Hi' to Alex on his Twitter page.

Last week Nicole Scherzinger appeared on X-factor in a dazzling black glitter, swarovski crystal combo. As expected, there was a deluge of requests on Twitter, Alex kindly sent me a full breakdown of how the look was created and the products he used and I tried to recreate the look to the best of my ability, I hope that you will like it. It's a great one for a christmas or new years party. Enjoy x

Best quality picture I could find, sorry.

  18. I think Nicole looked amazing on X-Factor, her look was so elegant. Thanks for putting that video up, Alex is clearly a very talented make-up artist and it was really interesting watching her create that look. Although, it looks great I don't think I'd be able to achieve anywhere near to that final result and as I'm not going on X Factor anytime soon, it's not too important. That is unless some talent scout overhears me singing on my Sing To The World karaoke machine!

  19. Love the look!
