Two faced for Halloween with guest beauty contributor, Alyson Sichenzia


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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!

Tis the Holiday Season by Beauty Contributor Alyson Sichenzia

‘Tis the season to be jolly and what a better way to do that than with your look from head to toe. Nothing says holiday cheer like a bold red lip, pink cheeks or smokey eyes. The look I am describing is a no brainier dolls. Gather all your makeup goodies together and lay it all out. Then dig out those sparkly lip glosses and glittery eye shadows and have some fun! Play around with blending shadows and ombré lips. Don’t be afraid to be dramatic with eye liner and contour pencil. Love who you are but the holidays are a great excuse to step out of your everyday natural looks and to make a bolder statement.

The beauty of makeup is that it’s temporary and you can simply wash it off any time. Create any look your heart desires; Have fun and be bold!

holidayAlysonStep 1) pick out 3 colors of eyeshadow  a base color, crease color, and a brow highlighter. Then use a black liquid liner to do a cat eyed look.

Step 2) pick a pretty red, pink, or coral lip color with matching liner. Top with a sparkly gloss.

Step 3) use medium to build able foundation coverage.

Step 4) set your foundation with a sheer powder by dusting it on.

Spark it up for the holidays, a post by guest beauty expert Alyson Sichenzia

This time of year brings joy and laughter! But also its a great  time to add a little shimmer to your life and your look! Holidays only come once a year so this Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years add sparkle and shine to your makeup! I love adding in a dabble of shimmer to my daily makeup application. There are ways to do this in a subtle yet classy way, without looking like too over the top ladies. So follow these easy steps and you will look and feel in the holiday spirit.

photo 2 Step 1- Pick a focus feature for the day and prime your entire face.

Step 2- If your eyes are the focus, add shimmer in your eyeshadow on the lid of the eye and then use a matte color in the crease of the eye. You can also highlight your brow bone with a white shimmer which actually enhances your eyes.

Step 3- Go more natural on your lips. Consider a neutral lip liner on your entire lip then apply a slightly shimmery lip gloss over top.

Sparkle it up ladies and celebrate in style!
