  1. aww you look so pretty! i was wondering if this is mroe of a high school look or college look? or both?! haha :)

  2. Does the whitening cream actually whiten your skin? Or just make it look whiter? Thanks! Very pretty look btw!

  3. Can you show a pic of how the eyeshadow combinations look on you? Basically, a pic with with your eye closed so I could see the lid.

    Pretty look. Also, can you do a review of the Skin79 BB cream that you’re wearing now? I’m currently using Skin Food and want to try other brands.


  4. Mrs. Smith,

    The Skin79 BB cream contains skincare properties to whiten your skin in the long run. I have only used it for 2 weeks or so and have not noticed any difference.

    The reason why my face appears slightly lighter here is because 1)the color of the bb cream itself is lighter than my original skin tone and 2)I used flash when taking the pictures and the bb cream prolly didn’t photograph well.

  5. Hi Phyllis. MAC’s neutral pink shadow is no longer available. Can you recommend a substitute from MAC or another brand? Thank you so much!

  6. Very simple to do it and it’s very pretty !

    This is my everyday makeup I do to school but I use NYX nude pigment on my lid :)
