  1. You are ridiculously gorgeous, just found your blog and love it, I wish I was half as good at makeup application as you are! This Skinfood stuff sounds interesting..

  2. hi, i just randomly found your blog googling “hilary duff makeup”. i really like your makeup tips,reviews etc and like what the other girls said,you’re so pretty!

  3. Hi, i was wondering what dye you used to get that jet black hair color? I used a black dye, but it ended up looking dull. Thanks in advance!

  4. Thanks Niki =) The shades I used are listed on top. Both the lipstick and lipglass were limited edition from the N collection.

    • I have no clue either. I can go from one prominent crease to multiple creases depending on how tired my eyes are. I also blame this on years of wearing contacts and age *lol*
