FOUR BARREL MUA SPOTLIGHT BEAUTEASE BY ALISON
Welcome back, Barrel Babes! Today we are spotlighting the third beautiful makeup artist we collaborate with here at Four Barrel!
Our artist today is Alison with Beautease by Alison. Open for six years now, Alison works to bring affordable and beautiful looks to those with special events or beauty shoots.
Specializing in both hair and makeup, A is here to emphasize and enhance your natural glow for your boudoir session!
We had the opportunity to speak with Alison for today's blog post so you can get the 411 on her favorites, tips, and tricks!
Q: So tell us, Alison, what is your favorite brand of makeup to work with?
A: My favorite brand is hands down Colourpop Cosmetics! They are the perfect mixture of great quality and affordability.
Q: We adore the shimmer that Colourpop has, we completely agree! What do you recommend for clients who aren't used to the glam looks, in particular eyelashes?
A: I always bring a few different pairs of lashes to appointments. Don’t be afraid to speak up if you haven’t had them before, this is great information as a make up artist to have! Keep your eyes open and look down during the application to help prevent them from sticking to the lower lashes. It can take a few minutes for the lashes to settle in and then they should feel more comfortable!
Q: Love it! Thank you so much for those helpful tips. Give us some insight into your process of choosing colors, how do you choose which lipstick or gloss to use?
A: I decide my lip colors based on the eyeshadow look I did and also on each clients skin tone! Every color pulls different on each person so I do my best to find the most flattering shade for them. I also love a matte lip for boudoir!
Q: Absolutely, that makes perfect sense! We too love a matte lip for our shoots. What is your go-to look Alison?
A: My go to look is a brown neutral smoky eye that can bring out the color of ANY eye paired with a flawless base and a deep nude lip!
Q: Gorgeous! We have seen this look on your clients and it is truly picture perfect. For the final question we want our followers to get a chance to know you and your brand. Tell us a little about yourself!
A: My business began almost 6 years ago when I moved to Jacksonville, NC. I wanted to provide hair and make up services at an affordable rate for fellow military spouses. My business expanded quickly after that and reached far beyond just military spouses, but Jacksonville locals, out of town guests, and even out of state bridal parties. I am forever learning and growing, but the most beautiful part of what I do are the amazing men and women I have met along the way. I look forward to many more years servicing this area and working alongside you and Four Barrel Photography to complete your boudoir experience!
