beauty-through-adversity asked: For the person looking for dupes, Nyx slide on pencils are a great dupe for the UD 24/7 pencils. :) x
sukebegrl asked: Regarding the dupe for UD 24/7 liner, i suggest the milani liquif'eye eyeliner. It's soft and creamy and long lasting just like Urban Decay's. very limited in color range though. :3
citygirllostinbatcountry asked: No matter what I do, products just seem to sit on my skin and end up looking cakey. Powder is the worst but liquid foundations do it too. I exfoliate once a week and use my Clarisonic twice a day and moisturize but no matter what I do it just sits on my skin. Can you offer me any advice?
It definitely seems like youre doing all the right things skin wise, so it may just be the foundation! The foundation youre using may just be too thick or cakes up easily. The foundation may be too matte as well, a more dewy foundation usually looks the least cakey. As for powder i really recommend translucent powders to set foundations! They are super silky & finely milled so they never look heavy or cakey. They also help blur imperfections as well making you look flawless :)
The best technique to not look cakey is to wear a a light coverage foundation all over the face then going in with concealer to concealer areas that need it. Since youre overall face will only been very lightly covered it won’t look cakey.
I’m not sure if you’ve seen it, but check out my post on how to avoid looking cakey :)
deannabilly asked: Can you recommend any dupes for MAC's Ruby Woo & Diva? Or Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner?
Ruby Woo Dupe: Revlon Matte - In The Red
Diva Dupe: Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 or Wet n Wild Cherry Bomb
I’m not sure of a duper for Urban Decay 24/7 liner but i do love Revlon Colorstay Pencil liner as a long lasting or Loreal Extra Intense Pencil liner :)
arielleview asked: What's your favorite highlight product?

pollygonzalez asked: I want to get a good 32 piece brush set for a cheap price, any suggestions?
The cheapest brush set that i think it still pretty good quality not amazing quality but good for the price is Coastal Scents 22 piece brush set for 30$
I think you’ll get a lot better quality brushes if you either spend a little more on a brush set or slowly build up your brush collection :)
Here is my post on affordable brushes
Here is my post on great brush sets i recommend :))
blood-truth asked: Do you know where I can find the Ben nye's banana powder in stores? And lip tar in stores? My Sephora only carries one color in the lip tar haha it would help me out so much! I love your blog<3
Lip Tars are only sold in store at Sephora unfortunately! Maybe check other Sephoras around you? Perhaps your Sephora will get the full lip tar line eventually :)
Ben Nye is Sold at Rickys which are a chain of stores that sell stage makeup in NYC so if you live in New York you can find them there! I havent seen or heard of Ben Nye in any other stores though!
Thank you <3
purchalm asked: Hi! What are the best brushes to use with gel eyeliner, like to make the flick at the edge of your eye.
I like using a thin angled brush for gel liner because it makes the flick really easy since it’s already angled! You want to make sure it’s synthetic though and not animal hair because gel liner works better with synthetic brushes :)
Or you can use a traditional thin liner brush (Sigma Eyeliner Brush)
You can find really thin eye liner brushes or angled brushes at craft stores in the paint brush section for really cheap!
i also love the MAC 236 (angled liner brush) & the 209 (traditional liner brush)
