inspired by Alex Box

The title pretty much says it all.  I suspect a lot of her work is done with an air brush, which I unfortunately don't have.  Anyway, here is my pressed powder attempt.  I mostly used Bulletproof and Poison Plum by Sugarpill, and the 6 pan blush and contouring palette from eBay.  I also used some colors from the 88 shimmer palette and some elf eyeliner to highlight.  The lips are some pencils and gold gloss from NYX.


  1. This is sort of a combination of two looks I found by Alex Box. They're both on this page, sort of towards the middle.


    She definitely did it better, plus had a better photographer, but it was fun to play around with. It made me wonder how people can wear foundation all day though. My skin felt so tight and itchy with makeup all over it.
