  1. Ok, what is it with my love for your nail polish selections recently?! Do tell, what are you wearing on your nails in this video?? BTW, love this look!

  2. Hi Karima,

    Love love love your work !! I have naturally very puffy under eye bags. I’ve tried tea bags et all but no effect. Any good tricks to minimize them?
    Love,
    Anna

    1. Hey Anna,
      That’s a tricky one, minimising salt and alcohol intake helps. Cold spoons can reduce puffiness to a certain degree.
      If it’s genetic then the best tip I can offer is: opt for an undereye concealer than is no lighter than your complexion and avoid light reflective concealer. You want to minimise the amount of light reflected in that area.

  3. I am taking a few tips from this video:
    -I have that MAC palette and I have been grumbling about the formula being so thick and stiff HA! I was using your typicla concealer brush so I might try a fluffy brush just like you did
    -that hair trick was very neat and perfect for hair styling failures like myself!

    ps: I so envy you your Rae Morris brushes!

  4. I love the look that you’ve created! Going to wear it! :)
    “Notebook” is a very beautiful and touching story. You might need some Kleenex tissues at hand. ;)
    And… um… you really need to make that video on how you make these wonderful photos that you post, you look like an actress in Vogue magazine.
