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

Student Spotlight: Meet the Aesthetician’s

There is something about self-care that is so satisfying. One important form of self-care is proper skincare, however, taking time out of your busy schedule to really focus on the important things like yourself and your skin care routine can be challenging. Your skin deserves to become part of your routine and your habits that make up your day- to-day lives and our Aesthetic students can help you with just that!!

 

What does an Aesthetic student do?

Aesthetic student is considered an Aesthetician. Aestheticians are specialists in the cleansing, beautification and preservation of the health of skin on the entire body including the face and neck. Our Aesthetics program teaches the latest techniques to purifying, balancing and renewing the skin as well as the artistry of make-up application. Because TSPA is proud to be a Bioelements Partner School we also offer a curriculum that is infused with the latest technical training from the industry leader in skincare.

 

What Types of Treatments do Student Aestheticians Perform?

Our Student Aestheticians spend 19 weeks being intensely trained on a number of specialized techniques for skin analysis to make sure that they are able to help their clients with a wide range of needs. Before any treatment is performed on a guest the student sits down with their guest and does a consultation. The consultation is to ensure that the student is getting to know the guest and their skin type so the right products are used for the end goal.

Some services that are our Aesthetic students preform but are not limited to:

* Facials

* Back Facials

* Chemical Peels

* Body Waxing

* Eye Lash Extensions

* Make-up Applications

Why don’t I do this for a living?” I have a customer service background and can’t wait to add those skills to the ones that I have acquired here at TSPA! I think after graduation I can definitely see myself in a spa setting in the area. Hope to meet you soon!”

 

Maria-My love for being an aesthetician began in 8th grade when I had terrible acne problems and I wanted to do something about it, that’s when I really got into skin care products! You can say I’m definitely a skin care junkie! I’m here at The Salon Professional Academy of Appleton to improve my knowledge more and grow more with the other aesthetician students. It is a very emotionally rewarding profession making people feel good, and in turn it makes me feel good! It really is happiness for all!!  I love what I do and it shows!”

 

Stephanie-Hi, I am Stephanie, yooper born and raised. I have always loved makeup but since great makeup starts with great skin, I developed a passion for both and I wanted to make this a career path that I could excel in. I want to help everyone look and feel their best because when you look good, you feel good and that happiness is contagious.”

 

Erica-My name is Erica and helping others to feel beautiful has always been a passion of mine. I grew up in San Paulo, Brazil before moving to the United States. Prior to pursuing my dreams of becoming an aesthetician, I stayed home to raise my two beautiful children. My favorite part of becoming an aesthetician is to help others feel confident with their skin, but hope to touch their soul as well!

Why You Should Start in June (or before)

Could You Qualify For Added Funds For Cosmetology School?

June Start Dates Are The Best Start Dates  – Why You Should Start Cosmetology In June (or before)

June is an amazing month! The sun is shining, summer is beginning, and those mysterious vacations are getting ever closer. But June also holds another little secret, one that if you have been thinking about starting cosmetology school could result in added funds for school in the form of grants and federal aid. That probably seems like a mouthful. And that’s to be expected. Financial aid can be a confusing and sometimes daunting process. To help ease any confusion, here are a few basics, as well as details as to how starting in summer can result in added financial benefits.

Beauty School Financial Aid

The FAFSA

The Salon Professional Academy Appleton is proud to offer financial aid to those who qualify. To apply for financial aid students will be asked to fill out the FAFSA. This is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It will compile all of your information and determine your award amount. The award amount that you receive is based off of many things, including income and schooling.

Loan Types

There are two different types of loans that you can get through the federal loan system: subsidized and unsubsidized. The interest on subsidized loans is paid by the federal government while you are in school or your loans are deferred. Unsubsidized loans on the other hand, accrue interest while you are in school. This is important to remember as the money you borrow will have to be paid back, and the type of loan it is, will determine the interest and even the monthly payment amount.

Federal Pell Grant

When applying for federal aid through the FAFSA you are also applying for the Pell Grant. This is a federal grant that is distributed based on need. Pell grants are only available for undergrad students, or students receiving certain degrees. You can qualify for the federal Pell Grant as a student at TSPA Appleton. Unlike federal loans, Pell Grants do not need to be repaid, and can make a considerable dent in your education financing.

Summer Aid Benefit

As mentioned at the beginning, starting school in June can create an added benefit towards financial aid. This is because the FAFSA stretches from July 1st to June 30th in a year span, meaning that if you begin school prior to the June 30th cut off you will be receiving funds, and possibly even a Pell Grant, from the previous year and then again in July when the cycle resets itself. Utilizing the FAFSA scheduling in such a way can help to eliminate any funding gap you may have, as well as take full advantage of any pell grant you may receive, ultimately decreasing the amount you will have to pay back. If financials have been keeping you from pursuing your dreams, don’t let this June pass you by. Contact our Admissions Team and get your application process started before time runs out! The start date for June is the 25th!

*Financial aid, scholarships and payment plans are available to those who qualify. The Salon Professional Academy Appleton is located at 3355 W. College Ave. Appleton, WI 54914. Feel free to call us at 920-968-0434 for more information or go to www.tspaappleton.com
