She's the Creative Director of cult make-up brand Illamasqua which takes its inspiration from the roaring '20s club scene. Box has worked with fashion heroes such as Nick Knight, Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney, but beyond her stellar credentials, she encourages women to look and bedifferent. One of Alex’s top makeup tips is that there are “no rules” when it comes to makeup, and that “you are your own creation”. Inspiring stuff.

I've met her before at the school of make-up at Illamasqua. I asked her what is her favourite thing to do in makeup and she replied with make mistakes. She is so amazing she inspires me to break the rules and push the boundaries with make-up. She see's the face as a black canvas and that's the same as what I see. Her work is so unique and beautiful. I have her book, by it people you won't be disappointed. She's so down to earth and she makes me a better make-up artist. Because of her i can show the thoughts and feelings that go through my head without words, i can express myself in a whole new way.
if she ever reads this CONGRATULATIONS on everything :D
