Hii! I'm happy i came across ur blog, I love ur tutorials and am really learning a lot.
I wanted to ask u if u know any good brand of powder foundarion, whether it's mac, make up forever or any good brand u can think of. I cant see myself applying a liquid foundation coz of time an my sensitive skin as well, so am hopping to find an alternative foundation to get the flawless look.
thank u sooo much and u r sooo beautiful!

Hey Xina!

I totally agree with you by using soaps. I prefer them to body wash, especially natural milk soaps, I love them.

By the way: I got one of those new Grand Duos!!! The Intenso one..... I LOVE it!!!!
I'm excited which one(s) you will get!

Big hug

illysam: Thanks! Maybe you should try mineral foundation makeup since you are not into liquid foundations. Try googling these names like EveryDay Minerals and Bare Minerals. Mac does have a studio fix powder too.

Addictd2Fashn: lol..those pills look too scary to swallow =p I actually like the Hayashi 911 it helped my hair and I don't loose as much hair as I did before.

Sisa: WOW! That's awesome! I might get Intenso, Moonstone and maybe Hot Planet...not sure I gotta see them in person too.
