Ask @genamourr:

For false eyelashes how far in the inner Conner do you go? I have very little eyelashes in my inner Conner and thin so I found it hard to do. And don't Always know if I'm going in to far

I always go a few hairs away from the inner corner or my eyes. So I look to see where my natural lashes grow, then I bring it in a few spaces. Kinda just depends on your eyes.

Hi :) I just wanted to let you know that I think your amazing! I also wanted your opinion, I am currently in need of a new flat iron. I was wonder what brand you recommend. I would say I have normal hair not too thick and not thin. It's pretty long too.

Thank you so much! And I honestly couldn't tell you, I have naturally straight hair so I pick up my straightener maybe once every 2-3 months :o lol

No problem at all hun! it definitely takes time, but you can do it don't worry! I never thought I could overcome being so angry all the time, but I did and I would love to help anyone else do the same :) If you have anymore questions or need advice feel free to write to me again! ♥

start a family, think about how anger won't make you the best mother or a wife. Anger can effect many areas in someone's life. It can effect any dreams, any chances, any relationships. It's so unhealthy, and the first step is to admit your anger has caused unnecessary problems in your life. I admitted that my anger was pushing away people and my life, and it made me want to change myself. So whenever you're angry, think of something you really want. Once you think of it, think about how anger will NEVER get you what you want. Once you think about that, take a really long, deep breath and say to yourself something along the lines of "It's gonna be okay. Happiness will be much more worth it in the end. This silly problem isn't worth getting mad over." Different things work for different people, so figure out what calms you down, and say it to yourself every time your mad. My biggest help is always taking a deep breath. It's so calming. Sometimes I even stand up and take a deep breath because it feels much better. Eventually, with a lot of practice, little things won't bother you so much :) Now when something irritates me I'm just like ughhhh, but I brush it off my shoulders, take a deep breath, and MOVE ON. I always gotta tell myself to just move on. Overcoming something like this definitely isn't easy, and I admit I still get mad sometimes, but getting mad occasionally and venting is way different than exploding over everything. So never think you ALWAYS have to be happy, just pick your battles. Remember to decide whether the argument is worth it or not :)

I loved your video! You're an inspiration and I wish you luck for your career, keep working hard and remember your subbies will support you! I am going through a lot of anger in my life right now which sometimes results in negativity and fighting (physically), how did you overcome your anger? x

Thank you so much!! Don't worry about the anger issues, you aren't alone I promise! Going into more detail of my anger problems, I would get angry over EVERY THING. If someone looked at me wrong I said something about it. I always argued. Always yelled. I took my anger out on family and friends aaand most of all my boyfriend! I took it out on him kos he was the one who was always with me. Me being so angry started a lot of arguments between me and my mom, me and my boyfriend, my friends, etc. and finally my boyfriend one day was just like "I really hate when you get mad." and he explained to me that being angry just puts him in a bad mood and it causes unnecessary problems in my life. He told me that I shouldn't let little things bother me so much. On top of that, I was also taking a class at school that was basically all about finding ourselves, and my teacher made it almost like a therapy session lol And between my boyfriend talking to me and finding myself and venting in class I realized that anger was not the answer for everything. I realized that being happy is so much more attractive. It attracts more friends, your significant other or the opposite sex in general, it attracts your family, making you closer with your family. Being happy just feels so much better. So my advice to you, whenever you are angry just think of one thing in your life you want really bad. For me, it was to have better relationships with my family, friends, and boyfriend. By thinking of how badly I wanted this, it made me realize that being angry wasn't going to help me get those close relationships. If you have anyone in your life that your anger has effected more than once, think about how much better it'd be to make that person happy and to have a better relationship with them. If you really want a successful career, think about how anger won't help you grow professionally. If you badly want to

So I have this really bad red dry patch under nose and it's been there for about a week. Is there any thing I can do to make it go away?

Hi there! I had the same thing on my forehead at one point. My best advice would be to use coconut oil on it at night, and try to exfoliate it to get rid of any dead skin. Don't over exfoliate though because it will get irritated and flake off more. If you don't have coconut oil, olive oil works too :) Daily, use a heavy moisturizer on the dry patch. You can even make a sugar scrub which helps tremendously too! I have a video on my fav face scrub I make myself. To that recipe add a tsp of olive oil. Leave the face scrub on for 10 mins and rinse. All these things helped me :)

Is FIDM helping you become a makeup artist?

No they don't teach stuff like that. It's a private fashion college. The majors are related to fashion. I am majoring in Merchandise Marketing, and will be getting my bachelor's or science in business management. They have like fashion design, interior design, product development, graphic design, and a few other majors, but I wanted to do business rather than design.

I would like to become a makeup artist, do you have any tip or advice?

The best advice I can give is to practice, A LOT. lol I started doing my makeup over and over, every day, and night just practicing new looks on myself. Then I started doing my friends makeup for fun, and eventually for events like birthdays and prom. The more you practice the better you will get. Also, collect makeup over time! (if you can't purchase a whole kit all at once) I am a college student and started makeup in high school, so I definitely never had money to just go out and buy a whole makeup kit for my clients, but over time I just bought makeup here and there and grew my collection. As for a kit, make sure to have at least 8 different foundation shades, varying from very dark to very light. I recommend L'Oréal True Match Foundation because they have sooooooooo many shades, they work amazing for almost everyone, and can be a light/medium/or full coverage if done right. Definitely have a variety of blush/powder/lipstick shades as well.
Another thing, do your research! I learned how to do makeup on other people by reading about different skin types, eye shapes, skin tones, age, etc by reading about it online. The Internet is so useful! I never watched YouTube videos until I started my channel, but I realized now how helpful they are! You can type in like "how to conceal dark circles on mature skin" and many videos will show you and give you advice that can help you with your clients.
For social media, have a Facebook page, instagram, and pinterest (if you're into pinterest) for your work. Post as many pictures as possible and market yourself so that people want your services. Don't take pictures using your front camera (the quality is horrible) and take pictures in natural lighting.
Lastly, don't charge people outrageous prices when you are first becoming a makeup artist. Try like $20 a person, then work your way up as your skills get better. That's pretty much it though!

whats your favorite drugstore foundation?

I just answered this question in the previous question so I copied my respond to answer yours too :) I said, "It depends on the time of year I'd say. During the winter I've really love Revlon Color Stay for Normal/Dry skin. It really is long lasting and gives a flawless finish! I just tried the Flower by Drew Barrymore foundation (found at walmart) and I loooooooove it. It's a really light coverage (which I like. I don't use full coverage foundation) and it kept my skin so moisturized! I don't recommend it for oily skin. I have really dry skin so it was amazing for me. My new favorite lol During the summer time I love L'Oréal True Match Foundation. It never leaves me oily and such a flawless finish. I do use it during the winter, but only if I mix it with MAC Strobe Cream. Otherwise, it doesn't leave my skin moisturized, which I need. Those are my 3 favorite drug store foundations."

favorite foundation ? drugstore and high end.

Hmmmm that's hard to choose! It depends on the time of year I'd say. During the winter I've really love Revlon Color Stay for Normal/Dry skin. It really is long lasting and gives a flawless finish! I just tried the Flower by Drew Barrymore foundation (found at walmart) and I loooooooove it. It's a really light coverage (which I like. I don't use full coverage foundation) and it kept my skin so moisturized! I don't recommend it for oily skin. I have really dry skin so it was amazing for me.

I do use it during the winter, but only if I mix it with MAC Strobe Cream. Otherwise, it doesn't leave my skin moisturized, which I need. Those are my 3 favorite drug store foundations. As for high end, I love Urban Decay Naked Foundation. Also a sheer/light coverage, but can be built up to a medium coverage if done right. MAC Mineralized foundation is also amazing! its not full coverage, and is not ONLY meant for oily skin types, which all other MAC foundations are.

Do you like FIDM? I really want to go there !

It's a good school. The teachers there are very educated. Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, but I just tell myself it will be worth in the end. They have many resources to help get you into the industry. What do you want to major in? & What campus will you attend? I'm a Merchandise Marketing major. I will be getting my bachelor's at FIDM as well.

So I have a question, I always apply my eye shadow and I would say I do it properly but when I try and take a picture for Instagram it looks way to blended and just a big blob of one color but I'm person you can see the difference. I don't know why? do I just blend to much?

I've had that problem before too! Try adding more eyeshadow to define the colors. I do that and 99% of the time it helps. (this is why I take my pics usually at night so I can make the eyeshadow look super dark, but not have anyone during the day see how dark it is) Send me your IG username and I can send you an example of 2 pics I took where the first pic it look tooooo blended together and the second pic I added more eyeshadow so you can see the colors better. (: That just happened to me yesterday lol
