Beauty Tip

Beauty Tip:

For those who love to do 'Eyes 1st' before applying foundation, here is a tip to sway you to the other side...#TeamFoundation1st:

1 - Apply foundation and concealer
2 - Do not set concealer under eyes with powder (you may set the foundation if you like)
3 - Apply eye shadow
4 - Clean up any fallout from eyeshadow
5 - Conceal under eyes again if necessary

For those who apply eye shadow first, you may think that it would be easier to just apply shadow first.  Applying foundation first makes more sense, in my opinion.  If you are dealing with time and need to get the makeup finished in a hurry, its always best to have the foundation already done.  You can always go back and make little tweaks to the eyes if necessary.  Just a thought.

I am super excited about Wednesday night.  Do you want to know why?  Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 10pm EST/ 9pm Central is the premiere of the Syfy channels new show called 'Face Off'.  Face Off is a makeup reality show that is is all about how Sci-Fi special effects makeup is done.  It is full of challenges and sfx makeup competition. The show is hosted by McKenzie Westmore (from the infamous 1st family of Makeup - The Westmores).  Its panel of judges include Glen Hetrick (Buffy, X-Files, Babylon 5), Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward ScissorHands), Patrick Tatopoulos (I Am Legend, Underworld). Be sure to check it out if you are an aspiring sfx makeup artist or if you just love makeup.  Either way, you are sure to be entertained as well as educated.

Ask Illusions

Ask Illusions

We received a question a while ago and I was slow about posting it because its not beauty related.  But after receiveing the question again from someone else, I decided to go ahead and answer it here.  Those who asked the question will remain anonymous. :-)

Q: How is Janice's name pronounced?  I've heard it a couple of ways.

A: I definitely don't mind sharing with you how my sister's name is pronounced.  Her name is spelled J-A-N-I-C-E.  Most people pronounce it as if it is Janis.  But, it is actually pronounced like Janiece.  Our names rhyme...Denise and Janiece (but spelled Janice).  And while I'm on the subject of names.  Our last name is spelled T-U-N-N-E-L-L.   Most people spell it and pronounce it as Tunnel.  It rhymes with W-E-L-L or D-E-L-L .  ( Tun- nell).  I hope this helps you.  Thanks so much for asking!!
