Alex Box FOTD (Makeup Utopia Challenge)

The best Makeup Utopia challenge yet! It introduced me to an amazing artist, Alex Box. A quick google search and I was blown away by her work! There were so many looks to be inspired by, but when I picked up the Human Fundamentalism brochure from Myer, I knew I had to attempt this look.

Please forgive the hair and the odd lighting. Where I'm bronzed I used flash in a dark room; where I'm pale I didn't use flash, but I was in a very bright room.

Products used:
  • Stuk Glue Stick (to make brows flat)
  • Almay Line Smoothing Concealer in Medium (to conceal brows, not in photo*)
  • Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse foundation in Natural Beige 
  • RCMA Foundation in KN-9 (darkest shade to contour)
  • Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Cabo Coral 
  • Benefit Watts Up Highlighter
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Deep End (eyes and lips), Half-Baked (eyes and brows) and Smog (eyes)
  • Too Faced Eyeshadow in Honeymoon (center of face)
  • TheBalm Eyeshadow in Matt Ramirez (outline on forehead and under the eyes, not in photo*)
  • W7 Honolulu Bronzer (contour)
  • Rimmel Natural Bronzer (all over)
  • Graftobian Mixing and Lining Set (to make blue lipstick, too dry)
  • Rimmel clear lipgloss (to make blue lipstick, much more emollient and lipstick-like)
  • Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Mascara in Black
*I toss the products I use in a box so I can take a photo and do this list when I write the blog post. But I was writing this days after I did the look and I could not fathom where I used the concealer and the matte shadow in this look, so I didn't include them in the photo, only to figure out later when I was writing the product list.
