Hi, my name is Alex Missick and I am a plus size fashion and beauty blogger from The Bahamas. However, it did not start out that way. I was a writer who wanted to be a Veterinarian (college chemistry decided that was not an option). My first time ever seeing cosmetics was when my mother would put on the same red lipstick every morning for work from Avon. Since I was going through that awkward stage between a lady and a tom boy, makeup never even crossed my mind.
As I grew older and started to get acne (which I still battle daily), I became a little more aware of my appearance and I did not feel pretty at all. Growing up on the largest island in The Bahamas, Andros, I did not have access to many things related to the beauty or fashion industry. No one ever talked about being a makeup artist for a living and clothes only came around during yearly trips to Florida.
It took years to build up my confidence to the point where I did not care what anyone thought of me, my body or my skin. While attending the University of Missouri Journalism School, my love for the beauty and fashion industries really grew. I finally had real access to all the makeup, beauty and fashion brands I could think of. I became obsessed with any new makeup collection and hair extensions that were being released and my personal collection grew quickly. I lived in Forever21 and HM looking for affordable pieces to add to my wardrobe.
My goal and mission is rather a simple one: to show women of all shapes and sizes that feeling and looking beautiful is a reality – everyday!
My blog and my Youtube channel are professional places where women of all ethnicities and ages can come and share my love of makeup, the love of color and all things beauty.
So please, stay a while and get to know me. You’ll be glad you came.
