    Cess, ca depend de quel brand u are using too…but a good tip is to apply some pressed or lose powder around your lips (coutouring the line) before using the lipliner. Do not apply any lipbalm on ur lips before using your liner, use it on dry or powdered lips and then add ur gloss or lipstick…
    Bisous cherie and thank you for the early bday wish this morning!

    I just found your page today, and I absolutely,without a doubt, LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! I love the fact that you provide such wonderful insight into colors and products for individuals with darker complexions. I just moved to D.C. last month and was wondering if you coluld suggest some good MUA mentors or schools???? This site will clearly be a new fixture in my day to day life. Keep up the amazing work (blog & Make up)

    Thank u Chinweoke!
    The lipliner is nightmoth and the lipglass Desire (both from MAC). Make sure you do a lot of blending with the liner and the gloss as you do not want the dark line from the liner contouring your lips to be too obvious…

    Salut Faby,

    Comment vas tu? J’aimerais bien traduire mon site en francais car je realise que de plus en plus de lectrices parlent francais. Cependant c’est un processus qui prendra beaucoup de temps et j’ai decide de commencer a le faire le mois prochain. En attendant, si tu as un article que tu aimerais que je traduise pour toi, fais moi savoir c lequel et je me ferais un plaisir de le traduire pour toi.

    Gros Bisous

    Eva,comment reconnaitre le fond de teint qui fait plus naturel avec son teint? Souvent dans certain magasin,les vendeuses ont tendance à nous refiller des fonds de teint qui bronzent et c’est pas toujours très beau à voir.

    Hi Eva, I just saw your site and is wonderful. Can you please tell me what eyeshadow you used on the second model with the braids. I have been looking for a warm brown natural eyeshadow for my lids. something that’s close to my skin color. I’m NC45, do you have anything you can recommand? Thanks a lot.

    Thank you Fatima!


    If you are looking for earth tones colors for your eyes and you are a NC45, try colors like: Era, Soba, Soft brown, Texture, Saddle or Corduroy. All these work great for a natural look. I will create one for you and post it on the blog…

    I just loved the makeup in pink and purple colors. I have a very white skin, and i think pink and purple are great for me. But can you tell me what other colors shall i use?I have green eyes.Tx…you are really great:)

    Hello Tavia,

    If you have green eyes, the best colors for you will be: browns (chocolate, bronze and gold); Plums and deep purples look great also with green eyes! You can also use gray/black silver for a smokey look. The colors you should avoid are blue or anything with a blue undertone… I hope this helps…

    Hi there, I didnt see any details on what was used for the first photo. Did I miss the information? If so, can you point me in the right direction for it? I would really love to know the colors of those eyeshadows and perhaps which ones you used. Thanks in advance.
