  1. phyllis when i apply eyeliner too close to my lashline / or on it. it seems to be really hard to take it off by the end of the day. I use q-tips but my eyelashes seem to fall off from doing so. How do you take off your makeup?

  2. did you move to london recently? because Boots is a UK based store and the only other place i’ve ever seen it is in HK.

  3. Wow your makeup is STUNNING!!! really really good, u have done an awesome job! and boots makeup is awesome!!!! well done it looks hot!
