  1. Hi philly!!
    I am going to be a bridesmaid for my friend’s wedding, i will be wearing a light/icy pink dress, I was wondering what color of eyeshadow should i wear with it, it’d be nice if you could show some pictures please.
    Thank you

  2. Hi phillys!!
    I am going to be a bridesmaid at my frd’s wedding, and my dress is a light/icy pink color, I was wondering if you could show me some pictures of how i should do my eyes for that occasion, like what colors for eyeshadow and how to do my make up, thank you

  3. Can you do a tutorial or tell us what you do with your eyebrows. Your eye makeup is amazing but your eyebrows are perfection!

  4. Very elegant blue & green combo. Both of them are very hard color to pull off on the lids "tastefully"–and my hats off to you. Love the mysterious feel of the blue used here… it's definitely a grown-up, mature blue.

  5. Hi Phillys,

    I noticed that sometimes when you line your top and bottom lid, the lines meet at a “peaked” point at the inner corner of your eyes. I can’t really explain it but it’s almost like a beak? 😛 It’s slightly pointed down. I’ve tried many times to do this to my own eyes but it ends up looking really weird and smudged! Do you have any tips and suggestions as to how to do/draw this properly? Thanks! :)


  6. I love your makeup! Can you do a step by step break down of the tutorials and include a faceshot without makeup…I think its hard because some of us either
    1. don’t have the same eye shape
    2. don’t have the skills
    to replicate the look without a full breakdown.

  7. Hi Phyllis,

    Makeup looks great, why don’t you put photos of its levels? For example, your photo when you put concealer, eyebrow pencil and so on. Thus we can see the difference.

  8. Hie,
    U really do create amazing eye make up looks all the time! I was wondering if you could do a tutorial on how to use blue & brown eyeshadow? I read about it in one of your older posts, but I can't really recreate the look on the model…& do you have any advice on using eyeshadow which doesn't really show up well on my skintone? Cause I just bought an EL eyeshodow quad in Enigmatic Khaki but the green was 2 light for me…Do keep posting more make up tips =) They're totally fab!!!
