    Oh I have plenty of advices and that’s what this site is for…btw, are you eyebrows waxed? lol
    that’s my advice # 1!

    This sounds promising for those, like me, who buy make up stuff everyday, and just don’t know how to use them! It’s a shame! I’ve had products for 2 years without even opening them…
    Anyways, looking forward to those tips!
    Good job so far…

    eVaDiva, this is true Fabulousity at it’s BEST!!!! I love it! I’ve already printed out your Favorites List, Skin Care 101, and the Gotta Have It blogs, I’m headed to the stores. And I adore the M.A.C. Mineralized skin powder, it works wonders! This is a great guide for everyday make-up users like me. I especially appreciate what you shared in the Skin Care 101, this is right on time…
    I am eager to know, what’s your take on applying vitamins to the skin? I’ve heard that applying vitamin gel capsules (like vitamin E capsules you can buy out of the store) to your skin is good for it, what do you say?

    I am looking forward to reading your tips/suggestions/comments.
    Is there a way to subscribe to the blog?
    Can you also tell us what are your favorite eyeshadows, especially color.
    i am guilty of wearing browns, golds, browns and more golds..
    Merci 🙂

    To Aminta: Yes you can sure use Clinique and Clarins. They are actually my 2 fav skincare line. Check the skincare category for more information on their best products.

    To Dona: To get rid of your dark spot, the best product that I know is from MURAD and is called Post-Acne ligthening gel. Be careful not to over use it as it contains Hydroquinone which is a skin lightner. MURAD is available at Sephora

    To A: Yes you can suscribe to the blog!!! It is actually better to sucribe so I can contact you directly everytime something is new. You will just have to suscribe to and everytime you will leave a comment, you will be automatically logged-in. I will also add you to my email contact list so I can send you updates on the blog. I will also write a post on my fav eyeshadows weekly as I know I have so many!!!

    Hey hey that is my sister and I am so proud of her! I am her number one fan, she loves make up and I did not even know how to apply a lipstick on me this is how bad I was. Now people who knows me can testify I am just a pro in make up. I learnt everything from her and everytime I go out my friends still think that Eva did my make up. And I am so proud to say that I completely graduated with a A from her school and do even have some good tips!
    Keep it up girl, i am so so so so soo proud of you!

    Good job girl!!! It’s very important for one to live his/her passion to its fullest extent and I congratulate you for that. So keep up the good work and I sure will be needing a lot of advice from you.

    Two thumbs WAY UP for your blog. This is great and I am learning so much. This really is an art and I have to say You are a PRO! I am still curious as to how you mix all these eyeshadow colors to have this type of finish, that is the hardest part in my opinion…..HOW TO APPLY eyeshadows? A specific type of brush? which one? Thanks for your advice and many thanks for this blog. Muuuaaah!

    To TOU:
    Im really into natural skin care. So i’d say wash ur face with black soap its gentle and tones the skin nicely.I leave it on until it dries then wash it off. Then apply hydrogen peroxide with a cotton ball, let it dry. Then apply aloe gel (i use jason naturals)to ur face.
    hope it helps.

    Hi there,
    I just came across your blog, and spent the last 2 hours going through it. Well, needless to say that you are doing the damn thing in a beautiful manner. A true diva indeed blessed with pure talent. I’ll probably start reading your blog quite often, even though I doubt that it will help me improve my poor make-up skills in any way, shape, or form (believe me, I am hopeless and probably need extensive 1 on 1 classes). Congrats to you, and I hope that you will be blessed with everything you need to keep making the feminine gent a little more beautiful everyday. One more thing, u need to step away from Mr. Van Vicker (V V for me), “my future husband who just doesn’t know it yet”. I am not one to fight, but believe that I’ll cut a Diva!

    Hey Ms. evaDiva,
    I am an aspiring freelance makeup artist. What tips or information can you share with me about making myself known and putting the word out there about myself. I have a couple of ads posted on Myspace and Craigslist. I am also building my portfolio by giving my girlfriends (who don’t wear makeup) makeovers. I am very passionate about it and confident in my skills. I think I just need a bit more direction in how to get started and advertising for myself.

    I love all of your looks! You do FABULOUS work.
    Thank you for you time!
