  1. HI Eman, what shade are you in the Face and Body foundation?

    1. Hi Maureen,
      I am #32 in the Face & Body Foundation

  2. Lovely video. Your looking so cute.

  3. I have recently found you and LOVE your tutorials, I have bought several new brushes and tried a few new techniques and see a huge difference, thanks! My wedding is coming up soon and you've helped me feel confident with doing my own makeup!!

    I have featured your blog on mine this week, check it out here:

    Keep it up!

  4. Hi Eman -- just discovered you in perfect time. I am getting around in learning how to do a nude/natural smokey eye look. (background...i do not do eye make up at all)

    I really like this tutorial you did but I would like to request if you could do a nude/natural smokey eye look but a MATTE VERSION. I anticipate to learn and do this for my day/work look.

    Thank you very much for sharing your skills!


  5. Hi! I really like your tutorials! It would really love to see a Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing- inspired look, like in this picture,r:4,s:0,i:75&tx=81&ty=37 (sorry for the superlong link)

  6. Hi Eman, really love your tutorials! :)

    I have some problems in choosing best foundation for my skin tone. Do you have any suggest about what is the best tone of foundation to cover my skin type? Should its one tone below my skin tone, or one tone above?

    (my skin tone looks like Beyonce, Medium skin - White to Light Brown - Olive Skin, type of skin in Southeast Asian).

    sometimes i just feel miserable coz i pick the tones of foundation too light or even too dark :(

    thanks in advance :)

  8. hi eman,

    i am new to mac gel liner, my liner spread out after sum time when i put it on lower lash line as well on upper. it gives a shade on upper eye lid, i hope u got it. kindly fix up my issue :-)

  9. Hi Eman, I also have Makeup forever F and B foundation in 32. Now I just wonder which shade of the Mac Blot powder that you recommend to go with it? Thanks, Jenny xx

  10. PS. Eman, I also really want to thank you. I am a very busy person, I have 2 year old twins and work full time as a neuroscientist and university lecturer. I have kind of neglected myself for some time, and finding your tutorials has actually given me a new lease of life. I am now inspired to eat healthily and exercise too, all because of you! I have bought some new makeup and am looking forward to meeting the Australian summer looking good :o) xxxooo
