  1. HI! i havent been here for so long but i’m glad its still updated….your advice and make up looks are really good….are u a professional? U SHOULD WORK FOR a beauty column in a magazine or someting..i’ll be so jealous *_* lol. WELLLL I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS!!!!
    you know in make up order..what do you mean by eye cream? wat is that? like just eye make up right?
    and should i still spray my face even if i got nothing on my face but eye make up? do i spray my whole face…….i know alot of questions but juts wondering..
    i recently got CG’s powerder blush in rose silk & i really like itt…=D but another you think its ok to apply blush without foundation? i have a hard hard time finding the right foundation or concealer but ill try SOME DAY..though i really like blush! anyways THANKSS IN ADVANCE!

  2. HI! ITS ME AGAIN but i was just wonderingg..if you ever read the book written by…Jacelyn Tay called Make Up For Asian Women? I thought of getting it but yeah. Just wondering if its good!

  3. hey there, here are the answers to your questions:

    1) When I said eye cream, I meant literally eye cream(like moisturizer designed for your eyes) and not eye makeup.

    2) When I said to spray your face after you’re done with your makeup, basically it’s to set it and take away the cakiness. If you only have eye makeup on, you can skip this step. I personally spray my face with water like a few times a day because I find it very refreshing.

    3) Of course you can apply blush without foundation. Foundation is not necessary unless you’re going for a polished look. If you have great skin, I would suggest skipping foundation completely.
