I do! Check out my post on how to fade acne scars here. :)

Do you have an recommendations for long-wearing/super tear-resistant mascara? I'm in a wedding next month and will be sharing this info with the bride and rest of the bridesmaids (we'll be doing a lot of happy crying...) Thanks in advance :)

Try mascaras like

  • Tarte Lights Camera Splashes Mascara $20
  • Maybelline Rocket Mascara in Waterproof $6

These are all the most waterproof mascaras i’ve come across :)

Hi, I do my makeup regularly but I feel as though I'm horrible at prepping and maintaining my natural skin. I don't wanna ruin my face 😩 any tips or recommended products?

Hi there! :)

One big tip to help maintain your skin is to properly remove your makeup at night. Typically, one cleanse won’t remove all your makeup so when you go to sleep any excess makeup will clog your pores and cause you to break out. When removing your makeup at night you want to double cleanse, once to remove and break down your makeup and another time to cleanse the skin. You can do this by just washing your face twice, using a makeup remover wipe to remove the bulk of your makeup before washing, using a toner after you cleanse your face, or using a cleanse off oil first (cleanse off oils are great for those who cake up that makeup because it breaks down and dissolves everything!). 

As for prepping you want to use a long wearing primer to keep your makeup from melting and getting all yucky on your skin which can clog your pores. Try more light weight, smoothing primers that will lengthen the wear of your makeup and gently fill in and smooth over pores to prevent your makeup from clogging them. 

Try primers like

  • Benefit Porefessional $31
  • Dr Brant Pores No More Pore Refining Primer $45
  • Hourglass Mineral Viel Primer $52
  • NYX Angel Viel $16
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Primer $7

hi there! I was wondering if you would recommend any skin care products for extremely dry skin! my usual moisturizer is just not cuttin it thanks! xoxo

Try gentle, non irritating cleansers like

  • Fresh Soy Face Cleanser $38
  • Philosophy Purity Cleanser $23
  • CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser $13
  • Cetaphil Daily Cleanser $10
  • Neutrogena Ulta Gentle Daily Cleanser $9

Try thicker, cream moisturizers at night! Personally my skin is normal/oily but I like to slather on a more intense moisturizer at night so during the day I can use a more light weight one. Try moisturizers like

  • First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream $28
  • Clinique Moisture Surge Intense $38
  • Boots No. 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Night Cream $22 (Boots is sold at Target & Ulta)
  • CeraVe Moisturizing Cream $15

You might also want to try facial oils! They are great light weight moisturizers for intense hydration. Can be used under moisturizer or alone :)

Does MAC have contouring kits?

Asked by

Not any premade ones, but they do sell sculpting and shaping pan refills at a Pro store or online and you can make your own contour palette! You just need to buy an empty MAC palette or a Z palette and buy a highlighter and contour shade. Great for makeup artists who want more than one contour and highlight shade depending on a clients skin tone or if you want more than one shade to get different contouring effects :)

They have 5 sculpting shades ranging from pale beiges from deeper browns to contour with and 5 shaping shades that are highlighter shades. These are only found at MAC Pro stores or online under their Pro Products.

You can even depot your favorite contour and highlighter shades and put them in an empty MAC or Z palette and make your own little contour palette!

You can fit quite a few blush, contour, shaping powders in one empty MAC palette or buy a divider to put in so you can put 6.
