    What ever you put on your cheeks is beautiful. Like the others mentioned, I wish you would have mentioned products you wore in the box.

    Oh wow!! Risa you look delicious:)) I am the same, eyebrows take forever on me lol. Your darker look is very well blended and works quite well! Now-- what is with all of this gray hair hate?? I am sure it's connected to age. I went from a natural blue black to platinum blonde when I started going gray lol. I was blonde for more than 20 years and I just decided one day I wanted to see what my gray looked like. I got it cut to a very short pixie and saw that it was actually pretty! So for 4 years now I have been gray and LOVE it. So easy as there is no color upkeep. I have chosen a funky haircut to make it look more up to date. It works for me anyway. And from time to time a younger woman will ask me who did my color, since silver hair is a popular color choice lol. It grows out from my scalp this color!!

    I always do my foundation and concealer after my eyes so I can cleanup, and get a nice crisp shadow look. I really like that lip color on you. You always look great, but the darker color lip is gorgeous.

I'm going to continue coloring my hair til I can't do it anymore, lol. Anyway I love your videos. I subscribed to your channel after watching a few minutes of one of your videos. I'm hooked. I love learning about make-up and hooded eyes, I am 51 and mine I slightly hooded, I have good genes, but I know how to get the best look from my shadow now and that is all thanks to you. Lots of love from southwestern Pennsylvania💜💜💜💜💜xoxo Laura Ann💜

    Thank you for the review. I'm so sad that Estee Lauder experiments on animals. I miss my Double Wear foundation! I went to all cruelty-free products about a year ago, and the best thing I've found so far is Too Faced Born this Way - although it looks really nice when I first apply it, after a few hours it's practically sliding off my nose (no matter what primer or powder or setting spray combination I use!). I've also tried Tarte's Foundcealer, but that just sits on top of my skin and looks fake. I think I'll try Charlotte Tilbury's new foundation next because I saw your review comparing it to Double Wear. (I'm 47 btw with combo skin). Anyway, thanks again for your great reviews. I love your classic style.

This weekend while I was cleaning my brushes, beauty blenders etc. I was thinking how it might be helpful if you did a video on the proper technique for cleaning our tools. I'm sure we all think we are doing it correctly, when in fact maybe we aren't. I know I would appreciate this type of video. Thank you

    I cant support estee Lauder or mac anymore. I love double wear and all mac foundations, especially their waterproof foundation in a tube. But the lauders are a super pac for trump. Therefore, I wont purchase from those brands or any brands under estee Lauder. So does anyone have any foundation options for me that are not from E.L.? I can't use revlon or almay for the same reasons. I have combo skin, I'm 37. I like different foundation finishes for different moods. I would love to hear your advice for me, anyone's??? Ummm about foundation. Not my political views.

    Love this look its very beautiful. I can remember looking good in my 40s but it is harder to look good at 64yrs old. That's why I am trying to learn anything new in products and style of make up. Besides, it is so fun to get made up and feeling good about yourself.

    I feel you on the gray hair struggle. I just got my hair cut (a lot was taken off cause my hair grows like weeds). After she styled it I was in awe until I saw all of those grays, lol. I've always used LOreal hair dye but for some reason I decided to buy the new (not too sure how new it actually is) Revlon Colorsilk Buttercream. First time I used it the one thing that stood out was no smell ammonia. I didn't even realize when I bought it that it was made without it. The next thing I noticed was just how long it kept the grays away. On my next shopping trip I bought 2 more boxes. I think I finally found something that fits my needs. Today I'll be dying those grays away. And now I'm excited to do my hair tomorrow. Never thought I'd say that, LOL...

    I like the covergirl exhibitionist - but the waterproof one is a pain in the @$$ to remove - there have been times it had lasted decently - two days in a row with me washing my face four times AND using and oil based makeup remover around my eyes - and still it would not come off. So if you are going to a wedding and you're a cryer, use the waterproof! LOL

    I don't understand how you didn't sweat all of your makeup off seeing how you still had to do your hair and body. That would have definitely happened to me, lol. Loved the look. I just bought the falsies mascara. I love it. My lashes don't need much help so I was a bit worried it would give me spider lashes but no. It gave me just the right amount product needed to not have to fuss with using a tool to separate my lashes from *the dreadful clump*. LOL I don't know if it's still happening but at Target if you buy two or more of that mascara you'll get a $5 gift card. If I had known it was gonna work that great I would have bought 2...

    Somehow found your youtube channel and subscribed immidiately. You are near my age (well, I´m little younger but not a lot) and most of youtubers here are in their twenties and very often i can´t relate as they are my daughters age. For me most comfortable designer shoes are Jimmy Choo Romy 100. I own Stuart Weitzman high heel strappy sandals as well but they have thicker heel and they are called square nudist. Everything else seems the same and they are pretty comfortable for a sandal with only one thin strap and so high heel. I am usually afraid to buy these kinds of shoes but seems that Weitzman does not sell them any more (square nudist i mean). For Louboutin shoes only one I can wear for hours is Ron Ron model. It has almond shape toe and more room for toes so i suggest to try this model if you love red soles. All the others I have tried are pretty bad and painful after 30 min. Love your Chanel bag and the colour is to die for!

    I am having such a hard time finding a good mascara. I do like the maybelline one but after about 8 hours it starts to smudge really bad. When I’m working I have makeup on around 16 hours, sometimes longer. I also like the urban decay and too faced mascaras but the brush is just too big and I end up with a mess. Any suggestions? I’m relatively new to your channel so I apologize if you’ve talked about mascaras before. I’m totally with you when it comes to grey hair. It looks great on some women but absolutely not for me lol.
