When it comes to looking good, Alexa revealed that Ivanka already has the healthy habits one needs for a great canvas to start with. “Ivanka is someone who eats nutritious foods, exercises regularly, doesn’t smoke and protects her skin,” she said. “That’s a really important factor when it comes to her skin looking perfect.”

The two have a collaborative relationship on choosing a beauty style for each special occasion. “I love working with her because even though she always knows what she wants, we both give our opinions and agree to a look,” said Alexa. “In some cases, she’ll show me the dress she’s going to wear, I’ll suggest an idea, and she’ll say, ‘I was thinking the same thing!’ Once we agree on something, I get to work while she’s on her computer or reading the newspapers.”
As far as Alexa’s go-to make-up styles for the statuesque blonde, “I always accentuate her cheekbones with contouring and the product I use depends on the lighting and whether the make-up is for video, photos or a gala.” To put the focus on Ivanka’s eyes, she generally likes to make them pop with a smokey look in café hues.
