Beauty Inspiration: Makeup is A True Art by Alex Box

As someone who studied arts and culture and someone who loves makeup, I was absolutely fascinated by this new work of Alex Box featured in Stylist this week.

And this project is not called “Makeup is A True Art by Alex Box”, it is just how I’ve named it ; )

Her interpretation of her favourite movements is art shown on the model’s face with make-up was simply breathtaking. Alex showed her interpretation of Cubism, Dadaism(I had no doubts about that), Postmodernism, Romanticism and Baroque.



That would be naughty to republish all the photos, so please take a look at the other looks here.

I am also very excited about the first Illamasqua’s fragrance which will be available from October.

It will be called FREAK  and here is how it is described:

  •  It’s a sexy, sultry Eau de Parfum
  •  Freak is a concoction of dangerously exotic unconventional flowers which we have unashamedly blended together to celebrate the night…
  • There will be three Limited Edition products that glisten and glow to help you reveal your inner Freak, inspired by the freak’s midnight blooms.
And what is your favourite movement in art? Who is your favourite artist? Yes, I would really like to know.
