  1. OMG, you are so beautiful! :-)
    I know your website for a very long time, but it is the first time I am leaving a comment. I just wanted to tell you that you look gorgeous. I wanna know your secret!!! :-) How do you manage to look so good?

  2. Hey Phyllis, you look great, as usual!

    I was wondering if you could do a post on how you stay in shape (i.e. what kind of workout routines you do, what types of things you eat, etc). Thanks!

  3. hey! you look amazing here

    i was wondering what steps you used for your face makeup when you used the mineralize skin finish (i see you used two). did you just mix the colours or used one as a blush?

  4. Thanks Jessica! The Comfort MSF is a medium bronze color so I used that to contour my cheekbones. Perfect Topping is more of a highlighting color so I applied that down the bridge of my nose.

  5. Hi Phyllis,

    Seriously, what do I need to do to have such flawless skin like you!!! Can you please share? I’ve always had problems with my skin and my pigmentation tends to be very dark and takes forever to go away. =(

  6. Thanks Laila but I just do the usual stuff – drink a lot of water, get my beauty sleep, cleanse thoroughly, moisturize, use sun protection and stay away from alcohol/cigs. Other factors like genes, diet, environment etc. also play a role in how your skin looks.

    If you have pigmentation problems, you can always go see a derm for fading creams.

  7. hello:) you are really gorgeous! i really love the lip color. but it won’t look nice on me cause my lips are too thick. usually i just stick to using gloss :)

  8. Hiiiiiiiii Phyllis!

    I’m asian too! and I feel like we have about the same eyes, but just a little different. I just wanted to say that your makeup truly inspires me!!! It’s really amazing how you can come up with these different looks and create some type of beauty, whether it be more or less natural. I love doing makeup and I feel like I do alot of smokey eyes when I go out at night but I would love to change my look sometimes. Let me know if you have any secrets for that :)

    • Thanks Rita! My “secret” is to experiment with different colors and textures. The best thing about makeup is you can always wash it off at the end of the day so just keep trying different things.
