In the fields near Yuen Long, dressed in an impeccable cashmere jacket, trudging through the mud at our photo shoot, Alexa Bui doesn’t seem perturbed by the demanding and unfamiliar environs. Setting up station on the back of a hired van, she pulls out the tools of her trade and sets up shop; make-up brushes, kits and designer paraphernalia come rolling out.
She’s got a new hair-do, and by the time these words appears in print it could be entirely different. But when you’re in the business of air kisses and make-up, change (and passion for the job) is the only constant.
Those are still my favourites when the occasion allows it.”
One of my dreams is to work for her for a season. Heck, I’d do it for free! I adore Lisa Eldridge’s YouTube videos.
One question she asks anyone in her chair: “‘How do you feel?’ Because I strongly believe that to get those amazing shots, you must feel confident and good about yourself. I love that I play a major part in that and that’s why, after 12 years, a marriage and two kids, I’m still doing what I do.
