Alfred Lester grew up in the midwest where he spent all his spare time playing ball of any type. Upon graduation, he joined the military before moving onto a career on Wall Street.
It was a friend and fellow artist who suggested an alternative to life on the trading floor. She thought he had the personality and creativity suited for make-up artistry. Alfred interviewed with MAC Cosmetics and spent the next 7 years as a senior artist. He was hooked, he loved the creative process and the comradery.
Slowly developing a private client base, Alfred eventually decided to leave MAC and venture out on his own. He has worked on runway shows, television, print, and celebrities including Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, Alicia Keys.
He currently lives in New York and loves what he does.
