Meet the Finalist: Alyssa Amoroso

Name: Alyssa Amoroso

Hometown: New York, NY

Age: 26

If you’re looking for a beauty vlogger to give you both lifestyle and makeup inspiration, look no further than Alyssa Amoroso and her blog Publyssity. She can also help you achieve that effortless “woke up like this” look, which she’s currently super into — so she’s basically everything you didn’t know your Instagram needed. Amoroso says she has many passions, including travel, beauty, and fashion, and her favorite thing is creating the type of content that combines all three — or as she describes “wearing a robe, applying a mask in a beautiful hotel.” Yes, please!

Her personal approach to beauty changes and evolves as often as her personal style, though she’s currently quite into a natural look. “I get eyelash extensions so I don’t need to wear mascara or eyeliner at the moment, which I love! Then for my face, I stick to the basics like a good BB or CC cream, a highlighter for my cheekbones and eyelids, and a good natural lip liner and lipstick.”

A feature that Amoroso likes to flaunt is her set of pillowy lips, and when asked, she told us her signature look is hands-down a nude lip. In fact, she says she has hundreds of lipsticks and liners, but always returns to the nude shades. “I have a beauty mark right above my lip that kind of goes with the vibe.”

In the past, she’s received recognition by plenty of outlets, such as Buzzfeed, InStyle, and Huffington Post, and has collaborated not only with friends and other beauty vloggers but also with big beauty and fashion brands, like Sephora, Zac Posen, Top Shop, and more. Though Amoroso’s style is always evolving and changing, one thing is clear — big things can be expected from her.
