Hi I'm the anon who asked about eyeshadow for deep set eyes. I actually have looked at pictures of other women with deep set eyes. I've watched tutorials, I've read everything I could find. I've tried multiple ways of applying my eyeshadow, but I can never get that nice shape. Do you know what I mean? asked by Anonymous

Maybe send me a picture of your eye with makeup! So I can see :)

Do you think the Anastasia brow duo is just glorified eyeshadow? or how do you feel about it? asked by Anonymous

I love the Anastasia Brow Duo powders! Are they just eye shadows? Yes! But here is why I love them:

  • They are the perfect shades for HAIR. Most of the time regular eyeshadows (and other brands) are not ashy enough or are too orange/warm. This is very important because for me, my eyebrow hair is ashy and a medium brown. Sure you can find a ashy dark brown in regular shadows but a medium? No. Most medium browns are (even if they don’t look warm on the eye) once applied to my eyebrow look very very orange. She really has perfected the right amount of ashy, warmness, or neutral shades that real hair have.
  • Also how many brands have 2 blonde shades? 2 red head shades? 4 brown shades? 2 dark/black shades? She has the widest range! I could buy 3-4 different shades (depending if I want a intense dark brow or a light natural brow) and they would all fill in my brows correctly (depending if I want warm, ashy, or neutral toned brow).
Which clarasonic should i use for dry skin? asked by Anonymous

Someone with dry skin can use any Clarisonic device. BUT if you get one besides the basic Mia here are some things to keep in mind:

  • The lowest speed is the most gentle.
  • Do NOT use the faster speeds right away.
  • Use the lowest speed for a month, then slowly build up to the next speed (1x a week, 3x a week, 5x a week) until you full use that speed every day. Next use that speed 1-3 months and once again slowly work up to the next speed. 
  • ^I mention this because a lot of people use the higher speeds immediately then complain of how the Clarisonic was too rough or hurt their skin. Those speeds are meant to be slowly worked into your routine (though I doubt anyone really knows it)!
    *Even for you oily skin girls!!!!*

Brush heads:

  • Luxe is great if you are prone to dehydrated skin.
  • The regular Sensitive brush head works fine.
  • The Delicate brush head works fine as well.

All the devices come with the Sensitive (which is just the universal normal head). It should work fine but if you can’t take it move to Delicate! Keep in mind that if you use the Delicate and work up speed wise, don’t switch randomly to the Sensitive head because it will be very abrasive. Start back over with working up the speeds! If you get the Luxe same applies! You may work up but if you switch heads start over! :)

Stupid question, do setting powders just make your makeup last longer? I use double wear so my makeup literally stays on forever and I recently bought UD setting spray just to see what the hype was about and I like the dewy look it helps create on me. However, For some reason I'm also itching to try a setting powder and I'm wondering is there even a reason for me to have one since I don't have any problems with my makeup lasting well throughout the day? asked by Anonymous

If your makeup lasts all day there is no need for a setting powder! If you want to wear one you can use one like Laura Mercier Secret Brightening powder under the eyes, where most people crease. If you like the dewy look the spray is giving you keep in mind most powders will mattify your skin! You could try Nars light reflecting or Hourglass ambient lighting powders to try and keep a glow though. 

I have deep set eyes (I'm pretty sure) and when I try to apply makeup in my crease, it's hard to make it look good. I've watched tutorials and looked at pictures, but I can't get it to look the way I want it to. Do you have any tips? asked by Anonymous

Look at celebrities who have deep set eyes!:

  • Kim Kardashian
  • Keira Knightley
  • Megan Fox
  • Demi Moore
  • Angelina Jolie
  • Claudia Schifer
  • Kirsten Dunst 
  • Cher
