    Ps, you don't HAVE to HAVE "flawless skin" for these tips to work, they will still be helpful to you. So cut the shit lmao, I get that I have nice skin, but that doesn't mean I can just get away with doing anything to my face. I've experienced smile lines, patchy foundation, undereye creasing, etc, but by perfecting my technique, now I don't experience that so I'm just trying to drop some knowledge lol

      I don't need to have a flawless face, would be nice lmao. But this texture is a no go with wearing makeup. Makes everything worse.

      Mattie Grace Hey, I know I'm not Alissa. But hopefully this helps since I've researched it before. You can find your undertone by looking at your veins. For instance, when I look at my left wrist, I see one vein more blue and visible and another vein as a light bluish color with some green and not as visible and that indicates that I have a more neutral tone undertone. If you search "checking your undertone" on Google, you'll see many links - you can use Bustle as well as Stylecaster (there some of the first links that pop up), and they give you plenty of information that helps in determining your undertone.

      Alissa Ashley Do you or could you please do a video on color correcting the proper way? I feel like I'm doing something wrong. I still can see the marks a little.

      Can you please review the Deciem Serum foundation? It supposedly the best foundation for $7.00. I would really like your take on this product. Is it worth it?

    This is the most informative video I've seen in a long time! I will definitely be investing in some of the brushes you mentioned!
    Question.. I use the MAC mineralize skin finish powder to set my makeup.. would you say that's similar to the Sephora one you use.. or do u think the Sephora one is better? I'm trying to see if I would benefit from getting that one or just stick to the Mac one 🤔

    I loved this tutorial!!!! You def made some good points because every translucent powder works the same so I need to try that sephora powder and a more tinted loose powder to cancel my smile lines bc the LM powder doesn't work for me bc of my dry skin :( KEEP SLAYING GIRL 😘😘😘😘 #snapchatfam

    I have horrible skin, and I never have good experiences with applying my foundation with a brush. And I just can't understand why. It makes my skin look flaky and dry.
    I have combo dehydrated skin. Maybe that's why.

    I've always heard if you blend your concealer all the way up to your hair(hopefully I'm wording this right where y'all can understand lol) it will widen your face.

    Another tip I'd recommend(It's from my Aunt Jackie Aina) is applying your concealer......letting it sit for about three minutes, and then go in using Alissa's amazing tip! I'm telling you guys, your concealer will NOT budge or crease. Thanks again Alissa for the amazing tips! Your face is always flawless & amazing! So beautiful 😍❤️
