  1. makeup forever seems fun, bright and youthful! i would love to learn how to use color in a chic way that doesn't make me look like a child got a hold of eyes hadow LOL.

  2. We all know I love my make up forever HD powder! I'm such a naturalist, the bright colors scare me! But they could be fun.

  3. I recently started following a girl on IG and asked her what product she used on her cheeks for contouring. She said she used a pressed powder by Inglot. I had never heard of it and by their website it looked like they didn't sell product in stores. What product would you recommend by Make Up For Ever or others for cheek contouring? I have tried many but can't seem to get the color/matte/shine I'm looking for!

  4. I'd like to learn more about Urban Decay brand wise, and technique wise I would like to learn more about eyebrow shaping

  5. I'd like to learn more about MakeUp Forever because I'm digging this sample!! ;)
