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!

Do you travel with hair and makeup?

Alison Sudol: No, I do all my own stuff.

Do you have any tips?

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.

LOVE HER!

Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?

A few kissing facts to get you ready for Valentine’s Day!

  • Kissing can cause cavities. If you kiss someone who may have bad bacteria in his/her mouth, their saliva could pass the bacteria on to you, thereby causing cavities. On the other hand, according to Dr. Mello, others believe that kissing may actually prevent cavities since salvia is the body’s natural way of cleaning the mouth.
  • South Africa Bans Kissing. In December 2007 the South African government banned kissed involving anyone under the age of 16, regardless of consent.
  • A Lifetime of Kissing. The average person will spend an estimated 20,160 minutes kissing in their lifetime.
  • First Kiss. 50% of all people have their first kiss before the age of 14.
  • Start Your Engines. The average woman will kiss 79 guys before she’s married.
  • Kisses & Calories. You burn 26 calories in a one minute kiss.
  • First Movie Kiss. John C. Rice kissed May Irwin in 1896, and became the first couple to be recorded kissing in the film The Kiss.
  • Blarney Stone. According to legend, any person who kisses the Blarney Stone in the Blarney Castle in Cork, Ireland, will be endowed with the gift of gab.
  • Kissing Record. In September 1990 Alfred Wolfram kissed 8,001 people in 8 hours (over 16 people a minute) at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
  • Ninety Percent Habit-Forming. Ninety percent of people in the world engage in kisses on the lips. Other cultures, such as Eskimos, rub noses.
