    I turned 50 and am learning about IF I have decided being on a strict IF regimen is not for me. I am 4’11 and 145, I think I will let nature naturally lose my weight. I only need to lose 30#. Thanks for all the great info I think I would have less stress if old ppl just confessed their old age and needed help instead of screaming and yelling and creating drama.

    Risa, bought the StansOut beauty sponge that you always rave about! In your video it appeared much larger than it actually is. Very disappointed in the item! In person it is nothing more than a scrap piece of memory foam & it would have saved me $20 if you have explained that was all it is instead of promoting it like you have in most all of your videos. I know you say you don’t receive money for these items that are sold that you use on your videos, but I really, really hope that the StansOut company gave you an incentive for this piece of scrap. I had just told someone that I’d finally found a makeup JPreporterr that was completely honest about everything she referred to her fans. I #LOVE your makeup looks & tips, however after wasting $20 on StansOut beauty sponge , I’m more cautious! Please Risa, don’t rave about this sponge w out explaining what we will be getting for our money. $20 is a lot of money for me especially during in this pandemic. Just felt like I needed to let you know about this disappointment! It has been the first & only disappointment since watching your videos. I never expected this from you, but others yes, as there are incentives paid out.

    I'm 41 I tried it and it did not work for me unfortunately. I truly do wish that I could find something that when I put my makeup on or my concealer that it does not show my fine lines up even more I don't have wrinkles anywhere on my face I just have a few fine lines under my eyes. I truly wish that was some kind of magic trick LOL but thanks for the video anyways. Maybe it would work for someone else.

    any suggestions on how to use metallic eye shadow on the lids without making your crepey, thin skin giving that older-eyes look? even on you, Risa, your eyes look so much better with mats than with glitter or metallic eye shadow, I know it's a shame to do be able to wear those, but let me tell you, it does not get any better...:) Thank you.

    I love your makeup tutorials, I continue to learn so much. I'm wondering if you have any tutorials on applying false lashes? They look so great, but the whole idea terrifies me. The glue, putting them on, taking them off, can you reuse them... yikes, am I alone in this?

    Hi Risa! I am getting fraxel lasering done on my chest, face and neck ( I am your age and was a tanner in my teens and 20's) . I am about to get my 2nd treatment in a week, but I am seeing amazing results just with one treatment! There is a small downtime...a few days, but it's clearing the dark spots and tightening my skin.

    That’s just awesome how I loved Mary key time wise even in my twenties. I was just annoyed to order from the representative all the time and then gave up. I need to try it again !!) By the way, for those who have more dry skin - there is the same luminous timewise foundation for normal/dry skin . ❤️

    Laura Mercier powder makes me look 90 years old when I use it and none of the drugstore powder could fix my under eyes and give me that flawless finish. Finally after wasting hundreds of dollars I have finally found my holy grail. Nikkia Joy Velvet finishing powder. Also Maybelline brow products are the best. Not that someone will know I am using Maybelline brow gel instead of benefit. ❤️ from Australia

    I never have a problem with concealer drying under the eye. Use a light, organic eye moisturizer under the eye, wait 5 minutes, gently add concealer tapping, not rubbing. I add my concealer with a small light brush. Never add any powder under the eye...never!! Any talc will eventually dry out the thin under eye skin over time.

    That’s a lovely eye look on you. That soft gold is gorgeous. Going to check out the primer you used. I got a primer in my fab fit fun box. It is called No Pore Blem Primer from Touch in Sol. I’m loving it at the moment. It leaves a velvety matte finish. I’ve got v greasy skin and large pores and it does a decent job of smoothing and mattifying xx

    I have slightly hooded eyes (slightly smaller & deep-set) & quite often, don’t apply anything on my lower lashes either as it just looks better & makes my eyes look more lifted overall. This was a GREAT tutorial....luckily, over the years, I’ve learned to do a few of these things on my own but all these tips were quite helpful!👍🏻😊

    I also like Mac Studio fix but can't get a shade to match, I find them either way to yellow or pink :( they need more neutral to warm shades and not varying shades of custard!! For someone with hooded eyes I think you do amazing winged liner, it always looks fab! Where as when I do it - dear god just no! My hoods are way worse, crepey skin and down turned peepers, it's just not a good look! Loved the finish look and seeing all the old classics!! U look stunning xoJoanxo

    Loved your tutorial. Thank you for sharing this info with us. I'm older than you and I"ll try the new techniques I learned from you tonight. You looked very beautiful and glamorous. One thing I wanted to mention. I think you lips should be lined with darker lipliner. I watched Wayne Goss on you tube and his tutorial for plump lips truly worked for, when nothing else ever has. I hope this info doesn't offend you because you did look fabulous when done. I just noticed I could hardly see any lipliner and felt his method, you may try and like. Thanks for your tutorial.
