Q: Where is the best place to apply eyeliner under your eye, above or below the lashes? I generally use it below the lashes but i wonder if it would look better if I put it above the lashes.
A: Above the lashes is called the waterline, and below is the lower lash line. Either one is acceptable – waterline lining doesn’t usually last very long, because of the nature of it, with how it’s slightly watery at all times. Most do both!
Q: What is the best way to clean brushes between various applications? Let’s say I have to do 5 girls’ makeup back to back, what is the quickest way to do this?
A: The best way is to invest in a brush cleanser, like MAC’s, which is meant to dry quickly. Professional makeup artist Billy B recently shared a tip with Karen from Makeupandbeautyblog.com that using Anti-bacterial Wet Ones makes a great quick cleanser for brushes in between doing models.
Q: I want to avoid buying tons of foundation at this moment. What is the most feasible way to get various shades of foundation using the most minimal approach?
A: I would try to purchase three warm shades, three cool shades. Go for the lightest and darkest in both ranges, and then pick a middle-of-the-ground one. This will allow you to mix different shades together to achieve the best shade. You can start out light, add a touch of a deeper color, and so on. Many artists end up having to do this, even if they have a whole range of shades available to them, to create the most flawless skin.

Zoya’s Kamilah (from Utopia | Winter 2007/08) is the most gorgeous cherry red, and I can’t wait to sport this when Christmas comes closer. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an excelelnt red for any time, but I’m especially excited to wear it to get into the holiday spirit. I love the shimmer, and it applies so smoothly! I’m not even a huge red-nail gal, but love this color. $6
This color, as well as the rest of Utopia, is available at fine salons and www.zoya.com.
