Winter Makeup Look feat. Alexandra Artistry
Winter is such a magical time.  Especially with all of the holiday parties.  I worked with Alex Patrick of Alexandra Artistry again to bring a fantastic winter look to life for this post.  This look is perfect for when you're out to dinner with the family then out for drinks with the girls.  I had Alex go over the details of everything she used and I even linked all of her contact info down below.  Definitely contact her if you have a special event coming up or just need a new glam look for the seasons!

Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into the beauty industry.
I have always struggled with acne, so naturally, at a young age, I learned how to utilize makeup to cover up my condition.  I always loved reading magazines to find the latest makeup tricks and trends.  I was struggling with staying focused in college and started taking art classes to explore my artistic side, at the same time landing a receptionist job at Frizzles Salon in Old Town Alexandria.  I was always fascinated with art and I always knew that art was a passion of mine.  I found that makeup is just like painting a picture.  Through social media, I found this whole community of people in the beauty industry and it inspired me to get serious about my artistic skills.  My peers are Frizzles also provide me with the positive reinforcement that I had the talent to succeed in makeup artistry.  In January 2017, I started freelancing part-time and never looked back.

What are some of your go-to products?
I can't live without my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Pencil!  I have sparse unshaped eyebrows and it's something that I do every single day religiously.

What products did you use to create today's look?
Primer - NYX Hydra Touch Primer, for extra hydration in the dry fall climate
Foundation - Milani Conceal and Perfect, for a photo ready face
Concealer - Tarte Shape Tape, best concealer on the market
Finishing Powder - NYX Finishing Powder, to set the face
Eyeshadow - Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette, it's full of beautiful colors that can take a natural look and bump it up a notch. I also used the Lorac Pro 3 Palette, perfect for natural and easily blend-able shadows.  It's a staple in my kit (perfect for bridal clientele)
Mascara - Covergirl Full Lash Bloom, water proof mascara and it's got a really nice formula
Lashes - Ardell Demi 120 Lashes, natural eyelashes always complement the look
Setting Spray - NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray, helps powders on the face melt together and keeps makeup lasting all day
Eyebrows - NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Powder Pencil, I prefer pencil over pomade to give a more natural brow look
Eyeliner - NYX Cosmetics Black Gel Liner, for the perfect winged liner
Glitter - Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadow, super easy to use if you're looking to go from a natural look to glam in just one swipe!
Brushes - Morphe Brushes, good price and great quality

Why this look?  What made this one your favorite to put together?
This look is going to be something you can put together in 15 minutes.  Perfect for a last minute plan with your friends.  Going off of your day look, this makeup look is the perfect transition from day to night!

Any tips and tricks for beauty lovers?
I love using my Mario Badescu Rose Water Setting Spray before I put on my foundation.  The extra moisture helps my foundation melt into my skin.  I also use the same spray as a setting spray, I love the way it smells and it's only $12!

What are some beauty products on your wish-list?
The Natasha Denonna Sunset Eyeshadow Palette!  It's $129 so it's definitely a wish-list item.  It's the perfect definition of a perfect warm toned palette, which is trending at the moment.
