    You have the EXACT same undertone as me. Thanks for the help.

    I really like how you talk about natural beauty and how to use make up as a tool to enhance it. Really loved how you encouraged people to love themselves and assess and figure out what they love the most about their features. Very educational and inspirational video Allie. We need more women like you. Love from Chicago! ❤️❤️

    The biggest makeup mistake I see is people who blink onto their mascara like twice and call it good. This isn't horrible but especially if your lashes are lighter, the tops of the lashes will look almost dusty if you only coat the underside of the lash. Plus you don't get an even coat and it could just look so much better. Instead, tilt your head back and raised your eyebrows do you can see your lashes well, then start at the base and wiggle the brush side to side working your way to the tips. When you're done, you can swipe up on them like you normally would to get some separation and length. Then go a step further and put the wand behind your lashes and twist the formula in an upward direction. In my experience this works best.

    I’ve never been able to make hair like strokes in the inner part of my brows where there’s no hair. Doesn’t matter what pencil, pomades, powder, I’ve tried it all and it just ends up looking like a blob of muddy brown 😫 what am I doing wrong?

    I have a hard time finding my foundation shade..I would say I have your skintone,but yellow undertone.For example my Fenty foundation in 140 is too light,but 145 is too dark(ofc I can mix these 2,but just as an example).I think it's also because my face is more yellow and my neck is yellow,but I have thin skin on my nex and you can really see my veins which then gives a yellow-green neck,it's so any foundation looks like it's not right.The neutrals look 1000 times worse,they are pink and grey on me.Brands should make more fair-light foundation shades for people with olive's rare,because everyone thinks fair and light people have pink or neutral undertones only or even if they are yellow,they aren't olive.

    I've never been able to afford a high-end primer, so I don't know what a good formula is supposed to feel like. I've tried a couple mid-range brands from the drugstore but they all made skin feel kind of slick and waxy. Is this what primers are supposed to feel like or should they feel like they've been absorbed into the skin?

    Thank you. I needed this after watching so many "beautygurus" layering stuff on and then editing the crap out of their finished look pictures so that it looks better (and with better I mean "almost not human/plastic doll"-look). That is nothing that I can or even want to look like, but since that is what is shown - it feels like it is supposed to be the benchmark.

    Loved this video... I’m pretty new to the makeup game and this was super helpful on so many topics. I just subscribed! One question... when you are patting the setting spray in with a sponge, is the sponge damp at that point also? Or should it be a dry sponge since the setting spray is already wet? Thanks in advance! ❤️

    I have a peach undertone which is not neutral. Yellow/orange, not pink or yellow alone. Some levels of intensity ( eg 1.0, 2.0 etc) do have peach undertones available and others don’t? I see this is pretty inconsistent in most brands. I have light to medium (2.0-3.0) with light coppery freckling and yellow/orange (peach) undertones.
    I’ve also been told conflicting info on using lighter shade of concealer. I’ve actually been advised twice by 2 seasoned MUAs to use a “Warmer” shade. If you try lighter than it can look ghostly and actually accentuate imperfections and at my age I really want to de-emphasize that area for sure!

    Thank you so much for creating this video! I use Bare Minererals products so I obviously buff in my foundation like nobodies business but I seem to forget about buffing in everything else and sometimes I catch a look at myself and gasp 😂🤡.

    Something that I've found is I used to hate wearing blush when i wore a foundation that was more full-coverage because it looked off to me-- but after I started using bb cream, blush looks much more natural and beautiful.

First time watching you and I just adored your attitude and this was almost perfect for me....I have just started using some similar types of products you use/and or mention here because I've been getting the Ipsy glam bag plus and getting some amazing products which in turn has helped me be able to try out different looks with rather pleasant outcomes so this was very helpful for me. I wanted to add that your absolutely gorgeous in my opinion you have such a fresh n clean look that makeup accentuates your beauty. Thank you for sharing I've just picked up a few tips from you I will try to incorporate.

    New subbie here! I love your attitude and your message and the way you deliver it. You remind me of the way beauty channels used to be about 6-7 years ago, when it was just fun, using different products and techniques to bring out one’s best self, not the sponsorship laden, ad-heavy, ‘influencer’ style that has become the new ‘normal’. Thank you for keeping it real! Now going to go stalk the rest of your videos! 🤩
