    I have a request, everytime i watch the trailer of sucker punch i think of you cuz you remind me of the leading lady. Could you do a tutorial, its mainly her eyes are so intense with lashes and such…almost reminds me of the tron one but with less shadow. I understand if its too similar but whatever shes gorgeous and looks like she could be your doppleganger.

      Agreed on the look but I would like to see something on all of the girl’s looks from that movie … and this is great for lighter tones, but I would like to see variations of the same look that could work for warmer tones.

      I second this. I’m sure it’s a lot cheaper that Two-Faced, which I LOVE.

    I love ELF’s primer. I use the studio line that has the eyeliner sealer. I used it the other day at a concert in Mesa, AZ and it was HOT in the room, i was sweating, and it was 3-4 hours long, but when i got home my eye makeup had no crease and it didn’t fade at all. not bad for $3 primer :)

    Why are you plugging BH Cosmetics all of a sudden? I thought you were over private label companies?

    The cats in the background are cute~~ T^T I remember when my father’s new wife had a white cat. I was only 4 year old… so i found his wife’s cosmetic in her drawer O_o caught a cute white soft cat [it was resting on the couch,… poor cat.. was a victim from my evil doing.. I was only thinking to make him look pretty].. xD and painted it with her cosmetic. ._. she was shocked to see her cat rainbow color. ;( now that I’m older, i regret painting a cat with cosmetic( Lipstick, powders, blush, eyeshadow). I don’t know what happened to it. she probably hid him from me when i was coming over. Come to think of it.. the cosmetic drawer disappeared too, along with a very long big mirror on the wall.

    I want a cute cat.. -.- my parents will not allow me to own one yet. [cuz we live in apartment]

    Sorry for the off topic, but the cats in the background reminded me about the past. xD cat+ cosmetic.

    I like how you did your eyes. You are pretty. You look like my mother’s friend. But you are much younger and prettier. :) Also her hair is red orange, and she has freckles on her cheeks.[She is beautiful too for her age] Only facial features are similar.

    Oo mom’s friend does not wears make up, or i just don’t see.

    I don’t think green color will suit me. :( But i will try it out. ( my eyes are red-brown Chesnut color, hair is dark brown)

    I think an orange color might suit me.
