Happy Halloween from Lionesse

Pumpkin and Halloween decor on stoopHalloween is upon us, and we at Lionesse would love to wish you and your families a Happy Halloween!

Halloween is such a fun time of year. It is the one day out of 365 where we can dress and act like someone we are not. It’s seemingly the only day out of the year where people are, for the most part, typically non-judgmental about things like hair color, clothing, and showing a little skin. It’s also the only day out of the year where you don’t have to feel embarrassed or bad about over indulging in the leftover Halloween candy, and can watch Halloween movies on the couch with candy in tow and scare yourself silly. Brilliant!

 

The History of Halloween

Halloween, originally known as All Hallows Eve, or Samhain (pronounced as Sah-win) is celebrated on October 31st every year around the world. Halloween got its beginning in Ireland, where at Celtic festivals – also known as Samhain – people would celebrate the ending of the harvest season. This is typically when the people of each village would stock up on food to last through the long, cold winter months. People during that time believed October 31st was the day in which spirits, both evil and good, would resurrect from their graves and steal crops and cause immeasurable sickness. At these festivals, there would be a lot of bonfires. People would dress in costumes to confuse the spirits and sometimes, to please them.

It has become commonplace for children to knock on doors every Halloween, while adorned in costumes of their particular liking, asking the question, “Trick or treat?” If no treats are given, sometimes tricks are played on the unsuspecting door-answerers, which can to some be funny, and others stressful. Children await this day all year, and are usually hopped up on more sugar on that one night than any other day of the year.

 

Fun Things to do on Halloween

Some of the fun things you can do with your family, children, friends, or significant other on Halloween are:

  • Make a bonfire or campfire in the backyard. Tell scary ghost stories as you roast marshmallows, and drink hot chocolate.
  • Watch a Halloween movie. There are many great Halloween movies to choose from (but none as great as ‘Hocus Pocus’ or ‘Halloween’!)
  • Make candy apples or caramel apples
  • Have a Halloween sleepover with your friends, or your kids friends
  • Make some Halloween crafts
  • Bake some Halloween themed cookies and decorate accordingly
  • Take a walk through a graveyard at night to give yourself a terrible fright!
  • Attend a Halloween party and dress up like something completely different than the normal ‘you’

 

There are so many things you can do on Halloween to have a good time and celebrate the day. Have a blast, and tell Lionesse about your Halloween plans below!

Lionesse Shows You How to Use Foundation

Beautiful woman applying foundation to her faceFoundation serves multiple purposes. It is something some women can’t live without, and others are actually intimidated by it. Some women just don’t quite know what foundation is, or why they need it. This article serves to inform, educate, and help you understand how to use it.

If you’re like most women who roll out of the bed and look in the mirror in the morning, you probably cringe at the sight of yourself in the morning. Makeup can work wonders to change that uneven skin tone, hide the blemishes, and correct discoloration. This is where foundation comes in. This little miracle product is fantastic for so many reasons – these are just a few!

Foundation serves to provide even coverage, helps to even out the skin tone, hide blemishes, allow makeup to ‘stick’, helps to conceal dark circles under the eyes along with concealer, and provides a smooth look to the entirety of the face. Used with a good moisturizer and cleanser, foundations can work wonders for your face – and finding the right one for you may take some time and preparation, however you will notice a remarkable difference when you apply it and have a look in the mirror. ‘Who’s that chick!?’ will be the first question that crosses your mind when you see the difference it can make!

 

How to Select the Right Foundation

There are various types of foundation available. From liquid foundation, the most popular, to whipped/creamy foundation, to mineral powder foundation, there is a selection available for every texture you can think of. There are also myriad colors to select from to perfectly match your skin tone. Play around with different types of foundation to find the one that works for you. Be sure to invest in a good quality product to avoid breakouts! You can normally match the color of the inside of your wrist to the color on the palette at the store to find the color which would best work with your skin. If no palette is available, you can match the bottle up to your inner wrist, and match the color that way.

 

How to Apply Foundation

Foundation application is dependent upon which type of foundation you decide to use. If you are working with a liquid foundation, using a spongy makeup wedge is probably your best bet for even coverage and smooth application. If you are using a whipped foundation, you could use your fingers, or again, a wedge. If you are using a mineral foundation, it will be in powder form and therefore you would use either a foundation brush or a Kabuki brush. When applying the product(s), you would need to ensure you put enough of the product to cover your face, chin, and neck, without using too much or too little product. This is done through practice. Too much will make your face look cakey (and honestly, we love cake as much as the next chick, but wearing it on our faces? Not so much) and just…gross. So, be sure to incorporate the right amount of product.

After applying the foundation to your face, you can then use concealer, blush, and other makeup. Foundation really ties your look together. Think of it as a canvas waiting for a painting.

After getting acquainted with how to use foundation properly, you will see what a difference it will really make in your makeup regimen, and wonder how you ever did without it!
