  1. I know this is a random question, but how do you keep your lips so smooth and healthy looking? Do you use any type of scrub or do you exfoliate them?

  2. I am going to try this technics tomorrow hope it help my OILY skin and that my makeup look smooth

  3. So far, this has been the most helpful video I have come across (out of about 15).  She is full of pointers the whole way through for various problems one can encounter with wearing foundation. She walks through the steps and addresses potential problems as they are likely to occur in the process of applying foundation.  I appreciate her addressing problems for varieties of skin types, not just her own.  I have very dry skin and recently discovered that applying oil a few times before applying foundation is very effective in combatting cakiness.  She offered this remedy early on and elaborated on the best oil to use, when to use it, and what it will achieve.  THANK YOU:)

  4. I cannot believe it. I changed my foundation routine based on the advice from this video and holy moly my makeup goes on much smoother and last about 50% longer. I didn’t know I had to wait to let products sink in. I just put everything on one after another. The waiting and not rubbing really helps. And for the people with their photoshop comment: you can be salty all you want, but you’re missing out on some good info.

  5. Besides scent/color are there any differences between all the GC setting sprays? Like is cucumber anti inflammatory or lavender brighten the skin or is it merely scent preference

  6. I’m so happy I found this video! My sister is getting married this summer, I’m a bridesmaid and am responsible for my own makeup! I have always struggled with having flawless foundation and this helped so much! I really enjoy using a cream foundation better than liquid. Liquid seems to do almost nothing for me. Do you have any advice for using a cream foundation?
