Halloween Makeup Spooktacular

Your pumpkins have been picked and carved, your house has been decorated with fake spider webs and spiders, but have you chosen what you will be for Halloween? Halloween is the time of year where you can be anything you want to be. If you are looking for some fun Halloween-esque inspiration, look no further TSPA Appleton’s very talented student artist, Alyssa,  will show us some easy to recreate but fun looks to make this years Halloween Costume come to life.

Here are two Halloween makeup looks you can create using your favorite makeup products.

 

1. Spider

Fix your eyes upon this stellar 3D Halloween spider makeup look! This Pinterest inspired look was created by Alyssa who achieved made the spider come to life by creating some detailed shadowing, an expertly applied concealer and eyelid primer to insure that these spider legs popped!

What you’ll need:

  • Light Foundation (or foundation that makes your skin tone)
  • Either Orange or Purple Eye Shadow
  • Black Eyeliner
  • White Face Paint
  • Black Face Paint
  • Black Eye Shadow

Alyssa recommends that you use eyelid primer to insure that your eye shadows will be as pigmented as possible (note: dont set with anything, you want this look to be as tacky as possible.) She used James Charles Morphy palette as the eyelid color and used face paint which could be substantiated for eyeliner. She then used eye shadow to create the shadows to make spider leg illusions.

2. The Stitched Face Doll

Here we’ve got the Stitched Face Doll,  this intricate look is for those of you who are wanting something a little less creepy but something that is easy to throw together last min.

What you’ll need:

  • Light Foundation (or foundation that matches your skin tone)
  • Brown Eyeliner
  • Black Eyeliner
  • White Face Paint
  • Medium Shade Eye Shadow  (brown)
  • Black Eye Shadow

 

To achieve the Stitched Doll Face look Alyssa suggests first applying primer and foundation that matches your particular skin tone. Once your foundation has been evenly applied you can start drawing on the lines of where the splits would be on the face. To draw these most effectively use a eyebrow pencil and fill in using eyeliner or the eyebrow pencil. Use that same eyebrow pencil to draw the stitches over the lines. Shade each side of the line to make it look 3D. Fill in the stitches using white face paint and then once dried go went back over where the holes would go on the and used a black eyes shadow. To finish this look out, go in with dark brown eye shadow and underline the stitches to make the looked raised. Then go back through and added highlight to the stitches to make them stand out.

 

Meet The Artist:

“Art has always been a passion of mine. Ever since I was a little girl I told myself I was going to be an artist. As I got older, I was not sure what I wanted to do with my talents, I had tossed around a few ideas that never really went anywhere. It wasn’t until I came to TSPA that I found my true calling. Attending TSPA has shown me I am at the right school and on the right path to success. Whether its on a canvas, skin, or hair I loving being creative. My goal after I graduate is to move to the west coast and work for movies as a special effects make up artist. I would love to own my own salon and have my artwork displayed throughout  the place to showcase my love for art. Being a cosmetology student has taught me so many things  beyond just hair techniques and has pushed me to strive for the best version of myself. ” -Alyssa B

2019 TSPA U Experience

Our Second Annual TSPA U Experience was held on August 20th. This all-day event was opened to the community to drop in and connect with students and educators.  They saw our culture first hand, met with salons and learned about placement after graduation and discussed the future of a beauty student.

 

Guests were greeted with balloons, refreshments, grand prize drawings and local salons that filled the student salon training area. Those that participated in the event learned alongside our students in the classrooms and shadowed them as they performed services on guests and got to experience the TSPA culture first hand. All the while learning about the beauty industry and the rewards it has to offer as a successful career choice. Our TSPA U Experience spotlighted our students using their creativity, demonstrating new trendy hair styles and make-up applications.

TRIM HUNGER to Support Healthier Eating in Fox Valley Schools

Over the last three years, hunger awareness in the beauty industry has helped feed hundreds of people. Hairdressers, students and clients nationwide are successfully trimming out the need for food in America.

WHO WE ARE

Trim Hunger/HuTerra is in partnership with a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and donations to address the issue of hunger both locally in the fox cities of Wisconsin and in America. Through its affiliation with the nationwide beauty school franchise The Salon Professional Academy and Elevate salon institute with the help of generous corporate sponsors, Trim Hunger is igniting the passion to help those in need in the hearts of beauty professionals all across the country. In an industry already focused on helping, giving, and transforming lives, Trim Hunger will have the limitless support of beauty schools, salons, spas, and manufacturers to provide nutritious meals for those greatest in need. 

HOW WE BEGAN

In 2014, Josif Wittnik of Appleton, WI was introduced to some frightening and saddening statistics regarding the number of people in his own community, including many children, who were going without food each day. Motivated by this daily tragedy in his hometown, Josif set out to do something about it. As the co-owner of a local The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) and Salon CTI and Day Spa, he leveraged their reach and the caring hearts of the other owners, staff, and students to sponsor fundraisers through a variety of activities under the name Cut Out Hunger; playing on the hairdresser pun. By the end of 2013, they had raised thousands of dollars to help the local food bank get meals out into the community. Knowing that more needed to be done, both locally and across the United States, Josif brought this issue to the attention of anyone who would listen. This effort reached a turning point in January of 2015 while Josif was attending the biennial Redken Symposium in Las Vegas. Upon sharing his story with fellow TSPA owners, salon professionals, and a variety of executives with Redken and L’Oreal, Josif received an overwhelming response from people wanting to get involved. Since then, the brand evolved to Trim Hunger (in keeping with the salon industry theme) and continues to receive an outpouring of support through The Salon Professional Academy franchise and corporate sponsorship from both within and far outside the beauty industry.

On Sunday, October 21st from 9a-3p, The Salon Professional Academy, located at 3355 W. College Ave. Appleton, WI., will be offering $20 haircuts to the public to raise money to help support our local youth with farm to table food, healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle. 100% of the proceeds will stay in the Fox Valley Community!
To schedule your haircut please call us at 920-968-0433. Walk-ins are also welcome!
