Dr Alex Box

This woman needs no introduction. She is the most inspirational makeup artist and woman. I'd being set for life if i was half the make-up artist she is. She came to my uni this week to do an demonstration it was incredible to watch her work. I learnt so much in the hour watching her it was breathtaking. She was recently awarded an Honorary Doctor of design (so jealous). She was also awarded the 2nd most inspirational woman in the last 100 years by Stylist. What a inspiration!!! This is what was said:

2) Alex Box

Alex Box has been voted the second most inpirational woman over the past 100 years. Alex is a highly creative make-up artist with a flair for the exotic, the extreme, and the flamboyant. 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.
Alex strikes a special cord with many woman, and some of her voters described her as being a “daily inspiration”, “empowering” and that Alex helps women "dare to be different".

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
