I canโ€™t guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.

I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me or sent to me by make-up companies to use in my professional capacity as a make-up artist for fashion and celebrity photo shoots, red carpet etc. I am also sent products by many of the top magazines to judge for awards.

I do not accept payment and am not sponsored to make any of the films on this channel. Some of the links under the videos and blog posts on my site are affiliated however and as stated before, I only feature products I like, or want to try.

    That technique worked for me until I was about 50. 63; eyes no longer amenable to that simple classic approach. Floundering about a bit at the age of 63; eyebrows still frame face and don't need extra work; lucky genetically except for eyes; hooded upper eyelids and some undisguisable troughs under eyes. Vr chic-chic glasses help but is my slightly self-absorbed pre-occupation just a delayed reaction to the inevitable process of getting older? I feel I'm making a bit of a fuss. (Love your generous, informative tutorials, tx!!!!)

    Looks beautiful! But how do you keep your eye makeup from smearing throughout the day? Maybe its my eyes but it all tends to run on me. ๐Ÿ™

    Lisa, I love your videos and often watch them to relax before bed, and I realised, you are the make up, YouTube equivalent of the Joy of Painting! Thank you xx

    I am so thrilled to discover you and your wonderfully helpful tutorials! I adore you! I am learning so much I want to thank you for taking the time to teach. I noticed that all profit goes to charity. Could you be any more amazing? Only if you came to my house and did a makeover on me in person! But seriously, you are brilliant!! Thank you so much for the tutorials!

    I love how this is so wearable. I feel like other smokey makeup tutorials by other beauty gurus are just too much and looks too clowny instead of effortlessly sexy

    What do you do when you look like your whole face is dragged down whenever you put something on your lower lid. I really want to rock a Smokey eye but I look like a sad raccoon wit eyes dragging down

    Does she use any finishing spray afterwards to hold the eye-makeup throughout the day?

    Normally I look like a racoon or a lady of the night when I try a smoky eye. This was the first time it turned out perfectly! Thank you. I'm black, by the way, and it still turned out great on my skin tone – I just adjusted the "taupe" to a darker shade that suited me <3
