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 am unbelievably impressed with your new Color Quick Nail Polish Pen. I’m currently at work and don’t have much time to paint my nails in my free time but, I painted my nails at 3:15 and sent you this email ten minutes later with dry nails!! Incredible!!! I love the ease of the application, the pen was easier to hold so my nails looked even nicer because of the control I had over the pen. Not only is it quick drying too, but the color is nice and vibrant. It was perfect with the first application! I’ve never written any company to tell them how impressed I was with their products, so this is a first. Thank you, thank you, thank you for finally coming up with a quick, efficient, and non-messy way to paint my nails! I can say you’ve got my hooked and I’m going to be sticking with these color pens, so please make more colors, cause I’ll buy them all! Thanks again!
Inspired by New York’s infamous 1970s discos, these chunky crayons of translucent color are laced with glitter and can be worn on the eyes, cheeks, lips, and body. Blend for a sheer, subtle, shimmer effect or layer with shadow, blush, or lipstick for a dense glitter.
Rachel McAdams has been sporting brown hair for quite some time now. I think that while blonde may not be the right color for her, there has to be a better look than this dark brown (almost black) hair she’s wearing now!
Here is Rachel at the premiere of her new movie, “Married Life” in New York on Wednesday.
