Just in time for Halloween here is a fun little treat for all my readers. Here are some fun tips and tricks to achieving Alyson Sichenzia, Beauty Contributor’s, “Tw0 Faced” makeup idea as shown here! Alyson says, “To be honest with you there are two sides to me and I wanted to express my softer side and my dramatic vibrant side! It took me about 45 minutes to achieve this entire look and I got amazing feed back.” I am sure everybody has two sides to them Alyson and can relate.
When doing a make up application such as this you want to make sure that your products are out and ready to go for easy access!
Step 1: The Face) Prep and prime your entire face specifically with a non-greasy more matte face primer. Alyson suggests “Your Name Pro” tinted matte primer. Use a light, build-able coverage on the softer side as far as foundation and on the dramatic side use a high definition coverage. Follow with a blot powder to add a matte finish to the entire face. Alyson’s favorite blot power is from MAC.
Step 2: The Eyes) For the softer side of the look, use a very neutral color on the entire eyelid, a white shadow to highlight the brow bone and a brown or chocolate eye liner.
For the dramatic side it’s good to use smoky colors and really dramatize a smoky eye, using champagnes, browns, black or even dark green. Then use a bold black either liquid or pencil. Consider some dramatic feathered lashes that are easy to apply and pretty comfortable as an added embellishment too.
Step 3:The Cheeks) On the softer side, simply use a delicate pink blush on the cheek bone.
Contour the dramatic side of the face with a “Your Name Pro” dark contour stick and blend it with a dark bronzer.
Step 4: The Lips) Apply a nude on the softer side and black on the dramatic side both with a matte finish!
