    I have a verrrry strange skin tone and eye shape, in makeup school other students struggled to match me and I still have to keep a multitude of products to keep up with it changing so frequently, I'm fair with cool undertones most days however experimenting with my complexion it turns out warmer, bronzed light coverage looks the best, basically mixing warm sheer products together and carefully colour correcting my eyes creates a faux natural that is more flattering than my normal 'natural' skin tone

    This video is amazing Allie! I never realized I was doing my brows wrong this whole time (the middle didn’t meet my nose, but ended where my brow hairs ended which left me with one brow longer than the other) until I watched this. My brow game is so spot on now, thank you!

    I naturally have the "sperm" shaped eyebrows. Lol. Heavy and rounded toward the inner brow, quite sparse leading up to my arch, then normal thickness that tapers down to temple area. I've tried plucking the inner parts of my brows and it always just looks weird. Any tips on how to shape brows like mine?

    I have alot of lashes and pretty long. But still since I tryed primer lashes before mascara I can not help to stop using it :-D With the primer my lashes look so full and long + it keeps on my lashes till I am washing it of in the evening. You can get the primer from many brands like Dior or Estee Lauder but you can get one also at usual drugstore from cheaper brand and they work ( atleast from my experience ) the same as those expensive. Anyway lash primer is worth the money ;-)

    I know I'm playing mass catch up on your videos here and I'm sorta just liking on all but not making comments, but I had to comment on this one. Thank you so so much on this video I loved it so much . I haven't started wearing make up again yet (aside of the 2 half attempts it's been over 10 years!) . Watching your videos is slowly helping me to feel brave enough to attempt it but I love how you've focused on trying to create the best version but not completely mask the face, I love that you point out skin is meant to be textured, going forward this gives me more confidence than any full on primer. Thank you ever so much Allie, I could listen to you for hours!! xXx 💜💙💜

    Is there something special about a setting powder? I’ve been using light powder in a contour kit to set.

  • Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebel

    Hiya! You *do* have beautiful eyes! Did you know you have a form of heterochromia iridum? You have the sectoral version (there are 3 types, not just the commonly referenced version- “complete” which is 2 different coloured eyes) it’s most pronounced on your right eye; very lovely! Great info, I’m sick of IG makeup! I’ve seen it worn on the streets; not only does it look ridiculous it makes a woman look like she’s in drag! (No offence to drag artists/performers as I have many dear friends who are famous drag queens. They taught me so much about theatrical makeup, I often helped. Later became a hair/MUA specialised in avant garde stuff, am *so* grateful to my kind friends!) Have a lovely day! Jet 🧡🎸🎶⚡️

  • Cnith TheOnliestOne

    With the perfume, PLEASE do not bathe in it... Some of us have scent sensitivities and some get asthma attacks over it. So while you're feeling "fresh" some of us are trying to breathe and can't. PLEASE be sensitive to us.
    Other than that, I liked this tutorial. Idk how well it will work with "older" skin (aka over 40) but some of it could work. Just not powder, that's the death of you after 30-35. It will find wrinkles you never knew you had. Trust me.

    Everyone who loves makeup should see this video! The info here is similar to what we learned in makeup and beauty books in the 90s (I'm 37), when there was no social media or filters, and cameras & use of photos was mostly very different, so it was all about how the makeup looked IN PERSON. Also your ethos about finding what you like about yourself, and what you feel your face needs each day is very similar to what Bobbi Brown used to teach. Bravo!

    Thank you for this video! I love how you stress the point that you should emphasize and enhance your own natural look to fit you instead of "letting your makeup wear you", I've been trying to learn about myself and my own features, but I haven't seen a video where this point is even mentioned. I also appreciated that you explain every step of the process well and that you are very detailed in your sharing. Thanks!

    Oh god no wonder you like your eyes.
    Btw I'm super jealous. I was born with heterochromia, very very (weirdly) similar to yours. The inner half of my right eye was light brown and everything else was gray. Unfortunately when I was 2 years old everything changed and I now have light brown eyes :( You can still kind of see that the inner right half of my eye is darker, but I wish it had stayed like yours!
    Anyways thank you so much for this tutorial! I feel like it's really going to help me. Even though this video was slightly long, you explained everything so well that it was worth the 32min :) You've got yourself a new subscriber :)

    I found out that damping my sponge with water ruins my complexion. I get best results when I damp my sponge slightly with setting sprey. Maybe it is an oily face situation? Who knows...

    • Laura Hamilton
      Laura Hamilton Month ago

      I can't apply setting powder with a wet sponge. I've seen several youtubers recommend it to not look as "cakey" but it just fucks up my foundation. I do use a wet sponge for foundation tho and I have oily skin. But I'm super anal about washing it after every use so maybe that's why haven't had an issue.

    I love makeup, but it seems like no matter what I do my foundation looks cakey and breaks up. I have tried different primers, foundations, etc. Lol, I worked at a cosmetic counter and my manager couldn’t figure it out either, lol. Estée Lauder works the best, but sometimes I can’t afford it. Also, I get ready in the sunlight, but under the indoor lighting it’s like a horror movie, lol.
