    Hi Cora , came across your site from a link from one of your photos on the web ( looking at reference images of chemical romance ) . I am a character artist woring in the uk and at present woring on some female characters that could do with some ace make up in a very similar style to yours , I hope you dont mind if I take some insiration from your tecniques ( being a bloke means make up is not on my top list of skills ) .
    That fact that I will be paint onto the 3d models means I can hopefully apply the colours in a similar way to your tutorails and get a more honest look to this style .
    I am about two weeks away from paint up the first model so I though I would give you a heads up in case you arenot ok with this.

    Hi! I’m real interested in those flakie nail polishes. But I live in the UK and we don’t have any ‘Sally’ beauty stores. Are there any other brands that are similar and worldwide? Thanks!

      Essie has a good flake polish in their Luxe series called Shine of the Times (found on head2toebeauty.com) and Nails Inc. (found on sephora.com) is selling sets with flake polishes in them. Both are more expensive than the Fingerpaints but they also seem to be much higher in the concentration of “flake.” Hope this helps!

Since I’m a mom of a 4 year old and 2 month old I don’t have much time for my self but just watching your videos gives me the confidence boost to get my self glammed up every now and then. Thank You for just being real.

    Hi I am so in love with you and your makeup tutorials. I think you are just absolutley amazing. I am 12 years old and i really look up to you. You are like my own role model. i really admire you mostly because you can really make a plus sized girl such as myself feel good about thierself. I was going to ask if you could please do a tutorial on how to do a very soft smoky eye just light enough that i could wear it to school. Thank you so much for leting me realize that I can just be myself.
