• Soft Contour: The PERFECT Makeup Look For the Holidays

    0 comments / Posted by Leslie Fuentes

    Unless you want to go for a full gothic vibe, choosing between a bold eye or dark lip this Fall is essential. Which brings us up to our all time favorite part of makeup, contouring. For the past couple of years, contouring has become a staple  to finalizing any makeup look! But for this Fall, we decided to tone it down a bit and therefore showcase a bold lip or eye without being too overwhelming.To brighten your complexion without contouring, try this technique. Your skin will look brighter more naturally. The beauty of this particular style of contour is the fact it's subtle. You know you are wearing makeup, but nobody can see it!

     

    Toning down your contour can create a sort of softness to your look. Your skin will look brighter more naturally. Give this style a try and share your results!

    1. Apply the Aniise Flawless Mineral Liquid Foundation for a semi-dewy look.
    2. Add concealer to cover blemishes.
    3. Apply bronzer lightly to create dimension. Use the Aniise Bronzer / Highlighter Duo compacts (Burlesque for lighter skin tones, Cabaret for darker skin tones).
    4. Blend the Aniise Highlighter across your cheekbones, down your nose and on the arches of your brows.

    And you are done.

    0 comments / Posted by Leslie Fuentes

    The trees that were once green are starting to replace their bright hues for more golden tones as we welcome Fall and the pumpkin spiced everything! Fall is officially here and as we step into the cozy sweater weather and holiday dinners, we wanted to share some of our favorite fall 2016 beauty trends, make a statement at your next holiday party by trying one of the trends listed below!

    Aniise’s Fall 2016 Beauty Trends


    Kiss it Better in Glitter Lips 

    fall 2016 beauty trends

    Probably the most selfie-worthy trend in our list, the infamous glitter lip. This is a trend that’s been circulating some of the most popular beauty Instagram profiles as of lately and is taking the cosmetics industry by storm. This trend was initially worn by the one and only Keyshia Kaoir, a fellow beauty creator whose focus is creating AND wearing some of the most innovative lipsticks out there!

    But the glitter lip trend didn’t stop with Keyshia, in fact the glitter lip is now gaining traction and lately has been blessing runways! These ‘glitter lip’ kits can cost a pretty penny, which is why we’ve provided some suggestions below using Aniise Cosmetics to achieve a similar look. We are looking forward to seeing many of YOU using some of our iconic liquid lipstick colors for this ‘glitter lip’ trend.

    We recommend the following products to achieve a similar look:

    Bronze -  Give this 'glitter lip' trend a unique twist by using our highlighter and bronze duo to create dimension and add a bit of glitz to your lips. Shop the duo here. 

    'Berry Latina' - We recommend using a fun yet dark color for this look. We recommend using our Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Berry Latina', you can shop the shade here.

     

    Rock the World in A Blacked Out Liner

     

     

    Stand out from the crowd! Let your eyes do the talking with this bold look. We love this trend in particular because it’s the perfect statement accessory without being too overwhelming OR uncomfortable. Dare to be a little daring.


    We recommend the following products to achieve this look:

    Eyeliner - Referred as the 'blackest of blacks' liners our there, our eyeliner is the solid foundation for any bold liner look you are looking to achieve. You can shop our eyeliner here.

    Eyeshadows - To add a little bit of oomph to the bold liner look, we recommend adding a bit of color with our 15 shade, eye shadow palette, which you can purchase here.

     

    Strut like Modern Gothic

     

    You can say that Rihanna has had a major influence over this particular trend, some other celebrities that have had impact on this look are now Bella Hadid and underground electronic scene queen Venus X. It’s almost too difficult to NOT fall in love over the chic combination of a dark lip and daunting eyeshadows.

    We recommend the following products to achieve this look:

    Bronze - Bronze adds just the perfect amount of glitz to any look, especially when contrasting dark colors, as seen in this look. You can shop our highlighter and bronzer duo here.

    Eyeshadow - Darker colors are recommended for this particular look. Browns, dark reds, grays and blacks are the ideal base color to achieve the perfect edgy eye. You can shop the 15 shade eyeshadow palette here.

    'Berry Latina' - Complete your modern gothic look with the perfect dark lip. Our Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Berry Latina', offers just the right amount of edgy and chic. You can now purchase our Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick in 'Berry Latina' here.

  • Discovering Beauty with Amelia Castano

    0 comments / Posted by Leslie Fuentes

    You've probably seen us feature her beautiful makeup looks throughout our social media: Amelia Castano, an ambitious and dedicated young woman that conquers her world every day with the perfect shade of lipstick and the perfect pair of Amelia Castano eyelashes.

    Ultimate Girl Boss Leading The Way

    Her genuine attitude towards our brand and our ideals as a company makes us appreciate her beauty not only as a makeup guru but also as a person. We decided to start a segment featuring some of the ladies that keep Aniise Skincare & Cosmetics inspired.

    Amelia Castano Shares Her Story with Aniise

    What can you tell us about yourself that our followers might not already know?

    I'm very crafty & I used to make jewelry. I love designing something from scratch & I'm very involved with design packaging. I always have a vision of how I want certain products to look. I like to be different and not look like the rest, since I was younger I had a different style, my own.

    How did you start in the industry?

    I started in the industry 6 years ago when I hired a MUA for the first time for a family photo shoot. She was amazing and it sparked an interest immediately! I wanted to learn for myself the proper techniques to apply makeup but after taking a few makeup seminars I was hooked and I knew this was my niche! I saw incredible opportunities and the potential for growth not only as an individual but as a company as well.

    Who and what inspires your style?

    I consider myself an old soul. I love classical music. Frank Sinatra puts me in a great mood. I think my style is classy, elegant with a hint of sophistication. I enjoy classy styles like the iconic Chanel that takes you to a different era where elegance was a way of expression. I think women can be sexy without exposing too much. Its hard to find that nowadays but I try to keep that in mind when styling myself.

    What is the one Aniise product you can't live without?

    I love the cleansing and hydrating mud mask, it leaves my skin so soft! I think Aniise has incredible skin care products that are beneficial to your skin improving your skin texture over time.

    Any particular style or makeup tips you would like to share with our readers?

    Makeup is a form of artistic expression, don’t be afraid to play with it & remember that no one is born with a set of skills. We develop these skills through dedication and practice. Make realistic goals that you know you can accomplish with hard work. If you want to master a winged eyeliner stick to your challenge by putting to practice every day until you've nailed it, then you can continue onto to your next challenge. Once you’ve mastered the winged liner everything else will be easy!

  • Behind The Scenes of Aniise Cosmetics Fall 2016 & Everyday Beauty

    0 comments / Posted by Leslie Fuentes

    We’ve been hard at work at Aniise Cosmetics & Skincare HQ! If you’ve been following us very closely through our social, you might’ve noticed some amazing new images circulating the internet for one of our fall campaigns. For one of our newest campaigns, we decided to use girls that are in our daily lives that inspire us. The one thing that inspires our brand and keeps us innovative with quality skincare products and cosmetics is the ladies we featured in the campaign.

     

    Our Newest Aniise Ambassadors looking fabulous


    They are our friends, our cousins, our nieces. We could’ve easily hired models like we’ve done in the past. It is essential to our industry to feature geometrically perfect girls. As much as we love using models and beautiful industry girls, we wanted to try something unique! We wanted to feature girls like everyone, girls like YOU!


    The photoshoot took place in the area of Sherman Oaks in the offices of our Marketing friends at Infinite Communications. Everyone arrived at around 10AM, ready for the magic that was about to happen. The glam squad consisted of major beauty gurus, Amelia Castano and Allison Wagner. The well-renowned photographer Trevor Boyd blessed the set with his presence and his talent of capturing real, unretouched beauty - which was the perfect photographer for our particular shoot.

    2 of our nieces and their 3 friends were in attendance. After looking through agencies and models, we realized that we wanted something much more personal. We wanted to place everyday girls front and center for the world to see. We then realized we had the perfect candidates for this type of campaign and we brought them on board. The shoot was a complete success, we captured amazing images and we can’t wait to share them with you.

    If there is anything we learned at Aniise through this shoot is that beauty is much more complex than what we have become accustomed to. Beauty can many times be our sisters, brothers, aunts or friends. Cherish everyone’s beauty and cherish everyone’s flaws too, because that is what makes them unique.
