MUA Series Part 1 ALEX BOX

Pandadoesmakeup has been asking her followers who their favourite make up artists are, so here are a few of mine. I reckon the best way for me to tackle this is in a wee photo based mini series.

1) ALEX BOX - MUA of the Moment.
I'm sure this comes as no surprise. This woman seems to be everywhere at the moment, has been mentioned on every make up blog at least in the UK and her make up has adorned many the face of Britain's make up collectors. Alex Box is co founder of Illamasqua, a make up range based on 1920's Berlin that is only 6 months into trading and already rivals MAC for quality, range and intense pigmentation.

"A ground-breaking make-up artist with a strong alternative voice. For her degree show at the Chelsea College of Art, Alex Box exhibited installation art exploring the relationship between the body and the environment. Later, her make-up went on to explore this relationship between art, science, nature and the magical.Alex has since become one of the most influential make-up artists of our time. She creates looks for designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, McQ, Peter Jensen and Gareth Pugh. She was also the lead artist at last year’s Fashion Rocks event.Alex’s work has featured in Vogue in Italy, France, Japan, China and Britain. Her work is also regularly seen in titles including Numero, W, Another Magazine, Dazed & Confused, 10 an i-D."
