Alex Box FOTD for Nymphette

makeup by Alex Box

Nymphette has a Face of the Day Challenge Calender every month where each day has a different theme. I love the idea as it really encourages you to play with makeup more often. This was my first time attempting a day, and today's theme was Alex Box. I actually didn't know who she was until I Google'd her, to be quite honest. I have, however, seen plenty of her makeup work, just never knew she was the artist behind it. Anyway, here is my wannabe rendition of the makeup she did in the above photo.

I think my version looks too clowny and I'm kind of embarrassed, which is why I put all my photos after the cut. Trying to at least somewhat recreate the look was fun though. I don't own any red lipsticks, so I used Sugarpill's Love+ over YSL #5 for the lips.
