  1. Wow, thats a really pretty look. I have pretty dry skin, and for some reason after I’ve applied moisturiser and concealor, my skin still looks flakey and uneven. I use a decent moisturiser and I also use MAC select coverup concealor. Is it because I need a primer or something?

  2. I can never get the corner of my eyes to look like yours! They’re so beautiful =).

    What I mean by that is, my eyes are usually very teary, especially around the outer corner of my eyes, which makes it hard for the make-up to stay on there. Any tips on how to fix this?

  3. Primers will help but I think you need to work on taking care of your skin first. Make sure you use a gentle cleanser (try Cetaphil), exfoliate once a week to get rid of dead skin, moisturize (pick a product with high water content) and if possible, do hydrating masks once or twice a week. Drink more water and use a humidifier as well.

  4. Irene, there’s not much you can do to stop your eyes from tearing but using a primer and waterproof products should help.

  5. Hi Phyllis,
    What brushes did you use for your eyes? I have Asian eyes similar to yours (defined but small crease) and I don’t know what brush to use to accentuate my crease like you do! Thanks!

  6. Hi Phyllis, a little off topic, but just wondering if you still use Clean and Clear Daily Pore Cleanser? I know you have dry skin but the reviews I’ve read recommend it only for oily skin.
