Alex Box - Makeup Artist & Creative Director of Illamasqua

Quote:
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 2007’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 and i-D.

She has created such a beautiful, and interesting, range of looks:
