        Could you describe the texture and look of the Loreal Magic Lumi? I bought it this weekend and was surprised to see that it came out of the bottle (even after massive amounts of shaking) very runny and separated (there was a clear liquid and a white goo, but not mixed well together).

    hey gorgeous! I am so glad i stumbled upon your blog (via Pinterest). I absolutely love this tutorial and have a lot of the products you’re using, however, there’s a few i’m not sure of… is there any way you can list out the products (and brushes if it’s not a hassle)? i’d love to do this look for my birthday next week!

    I’m freakin obsessed! I’m from STG…but I live in Alabama now and i’m sure we have mutual friends for sure. Can you recommend some good colors for contouring? I look like a hot mess when I try.

      YA For SG! I am so happy you like the blog!
      OK I know it is a pain that I can’t just name a color for that. I made the color I use out of a few different eye shadows I had because I couldn’t find a color that worked for me! Really tough to know what to recommend for that, I REALLY wish there was a better product for contouring!

    I cannot wait to try this! Do you know any eye shadow dupes for MAC’s Linen? I can’t find a swatch of the eye shadow anywhere!

      Really anything that is a ivory gold color. Honestly any shimmery cream color would work

        Hey! Just a heads up…I went to MAC today looking for the color Linen and was unfortunately told it was discontinued. I have another MAC goldish color called “All that glitters” that i mixed with “Shroom” to lighten a little and it seemed to work really well 🙂

    OK… so I am now obsessed with your blog. I am actually a cosmetologist, so I’m not a complete loser when it comes to make up, but you have gotten me to try so many new things and I can never go back!

    #1: I took your challenge of ditching my Bare Minerals foundation and trying the makeup forever HD and I really like it!! It’s so light feeling and seriously stays ALL DAY!

    #2: I have blue eyes and took your advice to use a dark brown liner instead and black and wow, what a difference!

    #3: I have two lil baby boys at home with me all day so I have done the 60 second smokey eye technique every day since you posted it! Lifesaver.

    Thanks so much, can’t wait to see what you teach me next 😉

    ok, this is more about the hair, so i watched your tutorial and your other ones as well. in your hair blogs a few times you talked about having your hair last 2 days. i just recently started using dry shampoo and washing my hair every other day (very hard for me and my germaphobe ways haha) BUT my problem is that my hair kinks really really easily. i put it up even for 5 minutes and i get a kink! so, my question is how do i sleep so that my hair can actually last 2 days? i have a hard time sleeping with it down, and my part goes really far back from when i was little and my mother always parted my hair completely back, so when i sleep that somehow always shows up and its hard to cover it back up even with teasing. i prefer to sleep with my hair up. but that leaves kinks…. what is the solution??

    Hi! I love your blog, I think I pinned all your videos and tutorials! I have long hair I think exactly like yours, and I did this method yesterday and it was definitely VOLUMINOUS, however how do you do the back? The sides of my hair looked great but the back was so messed up and weird. I just can’t maneuver back there and my hair is super long so it was so difficult! help?

    Alright My Dear… Love this makeup tutorial!! I have done it a couple times and it looks awesome! But I have one issue.. On my cheeks my bronzer and contouring are like clumping up. It is like since there is no powder on top of my foundation it is soaking it up. I normally don’t wear any foundation so all I had was tinted Moisterizer,(which I don’t ever wear).

    Do you suggest a different foundation? I need the coverage just to even my skin tone. Or should I just use Moisterizer and a powder like I normally do to get the coverage? Or am I using too much foundation and my skin was too greasy and soaked up the powder?

    wow! you are SO incredible! I found you through your amazingly talented cousin, Lu, and she’s right you are ridiculously gorgeous!! not fair! 🙂 and I like so many, am totally obsessed.

    so, a couple ?’s for you–
    1. what dark brown shadow would you recommend? they don’t have Showstopper anymore…a dark grey brown, golden brown, plum brown? so many dark ones, and I do need a good dark brown anyway, believe it or not I don’t have one!
    2. will you do a hair tutorial on your amazing color? is it the nutrisse color (soft black) pictured?
    3. also, a hair tut for styling it in this makeup video? I know you did the one for Marissa, which is to die for! your hair in the makeup video is a beautiful everyday look, which may be simpler? and faster so I might get it done more often. so pretty!
    4. do you have brush storage holder you like? I have been looking & looking with no luck.

    Thank you for sharing all your genius!!

      2. I will and I’ll post it today:)
      3. Yes, it’s basically the same as marisa hair with a few short cuts.
      4. I have a brush apron I use from o.co…sorry I with I knew more!
      Thanks again!

    I cannot even tell you how HAPPY I am that I found your blog (on Pinterest)! I have learned so much from your tutorials. I have purchased almost everything on your make-up list. And now I am broke. Ha ha. But looking so beautiful! Just changed the colors of blush and lip gloss to match my coloring (red hair). Because of you I have a new and fresh look and I feel so good about myself. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us!!

    oh my goodness, how are you so PERFECT!
    ever since i dyed my hair black (garnier’s “soft black” — same stuff you use!) i’ve been dying to get this hair/makeup.
    thanks for the inspiration/how to 🙂

    Love your tutorials! It’s always fun to have fresh new makeup and hair ideas. You should consider recreating a Carrie Underwood hair and makeup tutorial. I just love her natural, put- together look, even though I’m not a blonde:) keep up the good work!!

    I went to MAC and bought Brit Wit this weekend and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! It gives me the best natural, flished look and a little bit of a glow that I wasn’t getting with just a powder. Thank you for the suggestion, as I would prob have never tried it otherwise.

    I just tried this technique and I love it! I have to say it does take quite a long time and I have never burnt myself so much in one hair session but it really is beautiful, beachy and effortlessly sexy. My husband loves the look too!

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does building a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work?
    I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for
    new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
