Stay Golden

December 11, 2012

Hello Dolls, This is the makeup I did for my birthday.

I love this look! you can use this exact look for these upcoming holidays!

Hope you like it!

1. Apply smolder from MAC (black kohl pencil) on the inner and outer corner of your lids.

2. Using a pencil brush take some carbon (MAC black shadow) and buf out the black shadow.

3. With a blending brush and brownscript from MAC apply it to your crease, to soften up the look.

4. Using a flat brush take Mehron GOLD pigment and apply it to the

center of your lid.

5. Using Boot Black Liquid Liner from MAC wing out your eye liner. 

6. Apply Ardell Lashes #131 for a more Natural Holiday look.

Here are some more angles. LOVE!!!! 


Have a Happy Holiday!

Salon Perfect ColorEnhance Lashes

December 4, 2012

Salon Perfect

So I was asked almost a year ago to help with this project. Although they couldn’t pick

up the pallets of eyeshadows due to their contract they had with the company, after

working on it for weeks, they still came out with amazing concept of ColorEnhance

Lashes that make your eye color seem so much brighter. I was still a part of the project

and did the makeup for the Salon Perfect ColorEnhance lashes packaging.  Above are

some of the sketches and eyeshadow combos I picked out that would have been a part

of this project.

In this gallery you can see some of my work on the packaging! This was a very fun

experience to be a part of!!! :) I am so blessed to be doing what I love to do.

Thank You to everyone who helps me bring my dreams to reality.

xoxo, Alana Dawn

Rainy day in LA, I had 3 hours of sleep and have a 15 hour makeup and hair work day ahead of me for a commercial shoot so I wanted to stay warm and comfy.

Blazer- Vintage from my favorite thrift store.

Boots- Aldo shoes from a few years back. Everyone that works full 15 hour days with me knows that these are my go to boots!!! Love them!

Leopard scarf and leggings are from H&M

Beanie- fits perfect from Heel Bruise.

Makeup is pretty simple:

Red cherry lipliner from MAC
Face and Body foundation C4 MAC
Brows- brow shader from Ardell Lashes
Mascara- Loreal
