I had the chance to attend a great concert last week and see A Fine Frenzy perform. A Fine Frenzy is the band name for the uber talented Alison Sudol a 22yd old self taught pianist and singer/songwriter. Her lyrics are reminiscent of fairy tales and if the lyrics aren’t enough to draw you in Alison’s haunting voice has you hooked.
On top of being musically gifted Alison is gorgeous, I swear some girls get it all! I love her makeup so I did a little hunting to find out her favorite products which I have listed below. Alison even does her own hair and makeup for her shows I have included some of her DIY beauty tips. Also be sure to check out her video for “Almost Lover” and grab her album One Cell in the Sea!
What it is:
A long-lasting, lifting, curling, lengthening mascara.
What it is formulated to do:
Like a push-up bra for your lashes, this jet black “wonder-lifting” mascara lifts lashes with a scientifically angled brush to make eyes look bigger, while increasing lash volume and imparting the curviest curl – ever!
What it does:
This oil-absorbing powder keeps a handle on shine. The finely milled formula provides a smooth, flawless finish. Your skin looks clean and polished, never cakey or heavy. Perfect for touchups anytime, anywhere.
Alison Sudol: I do this thing with my mascara when I’m in a hurry: when I can’t get my eyeliner done correct, I use the mascara wand and I gently rub it against the bottom of my eye and it gives me sort of a messy, smoky look. A makeup artist taught me once to get a brown or dark purple eyeliner and warm it up on your thumb. Let it warm up and use the applicator side and gently put it on your eyelid and rub it in, and you can put eyeshadow over it to get a nice smoky eye. And blush. Even if you don’t have time to put on anything else, blush perks you right up.

I used to have this poster hanging on my wall in my dorm room in college. Is there anything more romantic than this picture? It makes me think of love, and Valentine’s Day, and kissing. Ahhhhhhh….I love romance.
