Question:”Hey Phyllis! I have very oily eyelids and whenever I apply eyeliner it smudges like crazy! Help!”
Ladies of color, I will be doing a Q&A with Celebrity Makeup Artist Sam Fine, the man behind some of the iconic makeup looks on supermodels and actresses such as Iman, Tyra Banks, Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah, Vanessa Williams, Janet Jackson and more!
If you have any questions for Sam, just leave a comment and I will make sure to include them in the Q&A!
This week, let us look at Val84‘s question on eyeliners for women with lighter skin and eyes.
Question:“Hey Phyllis, I have blonde hair with fair skin and blue/green eyes and I am having trouble finding a color to line under my eyes. Black and brown eyeliners often drag my eyes down, making them look smaller and tired. I have tried everything but nothing works. Any suggestions?”
To answer some of your skin-related questions, I did a brief interview with Dr. Jeanine B. Downie, a board certified dermatologist with medical licenses in the states of New Jersey and New York. Dr. Downie is also a frequent contributor to The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View etc. and has been quoted on numerous magazines like Glamour, Allure, Elle and more.
This week, I will answer Phuong K, Pinklye and Sophia’s questions on makeup brushes.
“What brushes do you use to put in e/s? I know a lot of people use MAC brushes but they are expensive. Any cheaper alternatives or suggestions for just the essential ones? Can you also explain how to use the different brushes?”
