Eye look how-to's!

I'm so excited about my latest beauty venture! The biggest question I get asked, as a makeup artist is "which brush should I use with what eyeshadow?" and "I just really don't know how to do my eyes!"
Well loves, worry no longer! I created a wonderful, cruel free line of eye brushes! I've picked the 6 most used brushes in my kit and designed a professional line that is more affordable to you! The key to a great makeup application is great tools! But it doesn't stop there! I've created my first how-to video so you can get a great look with these brushes!
Shop the brushes here:
Check out the video!

This is summer bronzed eye look that we did!
I have many more videos up my sleeve!

Have fun playing with this look!

AlannaK Caftan Collection!

As an artist, I find myself drawn to wearing many hats to fulfill my creative tank!
I have started designing and sewing my favorite piece of clothing in the world...a caftan!
It is the most comfortable, versatile, and chicest garment ever created! I've taken to sew them mostly by hand using the same couture sewing methods as Chanel and Valentino!

These are just my first two that I have designed and made myself. They are both made out of silk de chine. Which is a fabulous, lightweight, luxurious fabric. The style of this makes it great for these hot and humid Pittsburgh summer days. When you catch a breeze it almost feels like your wearing nothing at all!

Also the best part of a caftan is that it looks amazing on everyone! No matter your height, weight or build!

Wear this length as a blouse with jeans, cover up to the pool, or a chic mini dress with pumps at night!

This shorter length is glamorous for night, perfect for the office, casual with a pair of shorts.

There are many more colors and designs in the works.

I will be doing coats for the fall and winter with lots of great designs! These will be available soon on my ebay store.

Want one now, or in a different color? Send a request to and I will hook you up!
