    This is bautiful!

    You have your own line? That’s awesome, congrats! Can’t wait to know more about it!

    Btw: You only applied mascara on your lower lashes. So that means you just applied false lashes on the top and curled your natural lashes and falsies all together?

    Thanks ladies! Will post more about the line shortly =)

  • Reply Phyllis August 23, 2009 at 6:53 am

    Cattie, that is correct. I don’t always apply mascara before the lashes (I think that ruins them). You just have to curl them when you are done so they blend in with one another.

    Gorgeous! Can’t wait for your own line of makeup Phyllis. Congrats 😀

  • Reply Cattie August 23, 2009 at 4:43 pm

    Ahh, that’s a great idea, Phyllis! I’ll keep that in mind =)
    I always thought you should put mascara on after the falsies to blend them together, but if I use your methode I won’t ruin my future falsies. I asked my aunt to bring me some from HK. Thanks!

    Wow, I LOVE this look! Makes me want to buy the photo realism quad (but I actually want KATE.. must .. resist.. temptation!) & the bronzer looks stunning on you. I think I might actually go buy these tomorrow. And I can’t wait to here about your own line, congrats<3!

    Hi Phyllis, what do you use to set your HD foundation so it doesnt become too shiny?

  • Reply Phyllis September 4, 2009 at 11:54 pm


    My skin is on the dry side so I don’t set the HD foundation with anything. If you are looking for a setting powder, try the HD Microfinish Powder (also from Make Up For Ever). It is super fine and works beautifully with the foundation.
