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

    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.

    Thanks Kristina! When I was doing the face, I had both in mind which is why I went for a more natural look.

  • Reply Phyllis September 2, 2009 at 12:04 am

    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.

    Sure Toast! I’ll update with a picture of my eyes closed shortly!

  • Reply Phyllis September 2, 2009 at 12:05 am

    Thanks everyone else for the compliments =)

    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!

  • Reply Pinklye September 2, 2009 at 1:06 pm

    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 🙂

  • Reply Lanie September 2, 2009 at 1:18 pm

    Very fresh and cute but you look slightly pink and the eyeshadow makes you look a tad tired.

  • Reply Diyana September 2, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    whats on your lower lashline?

  • Reply Rachel September 3, 2009 at 3:21 am

    You look so gorgeous! The whole simple wide eyed, cat eye makes you look so much like Angelina Jolie 🙂

  • Reply Nancy September 7, 2009 at 7:40 pm
