Thanks a lot for showing this link in your youtube profile. I'll use it on my own m/u blog. Hope it's ok because you're one of my numerous sources of inspiration. I love your helpful vids of eye make up looks on youtube though it's sometimes hard to imitate them.Frankly speaking, I've problematic deep set eyes. Nonetheless, I share your passion for make-up and art in general. Thanks again for doing such a great "job" or mission. You rule!All the best, Mylanqolia

Hi Lauren,

I love your videos! My favorite looks are your Sweet & Innocent Bridal Look and then your Barrie M Belly Dancer/Arabic look. I also like your neutral brown looks.

I was wondering if you could do a look using Urban Decay's Smog, or any similar bronze look? I just bought it and am having trouble making it look neutral-ish...

Thanks! And I wish you much success!

P.S. I'm a single mom too!

Hey Lauren, Love your makeup tutorials!! What webcam do you use to do them? I'm trying to do one but the close-up image of my eye doesn't come out nearly as crisp and clear as yours. The color is off. My cam is a logitech with 1.3mp (max). Thanks for any tips/tricks on this. =)

I think your vlogs are fab!
I would love you to do a "Cheryl Tweedy" inspired look. I have tried a thousand times to do it myself, but never get it right.


Vic said...

Hullo Lauren, I´m a 39-year-old Hungarian gal and longtime follower of your useful and entertaining YouTube tutorials (we share hair/skin/eye colouring, so I find them ideal!), so when I saw you had a blog here I HAD to say Hello, Thank You, Hats OFF, and Keep It Up; your work provides much inspiration and joy! (my blog try here´s pretty much gone inactive, sorry about that!)

All the best,
Krisztina Vic/Beautyjunkie "Max und Moritz"

Lauren! OK, I try that again. I've been watching your tutorials on YouTube. I wanted to thank you for the inspiration. My eyes are even deeper set than yours, and while I'd love to play with eyeshadow, the results end up more or less pointless. I think I can make several of these looks work for me. You've made this nerdy girl's life better. Thanks!

I love watching your makeup tutorials. It has helped me try new looks. thanks again!

misslee said...

hey Lauren, I love your tutorials, I was wondering if you could do a Nicole from girlicious, make-up. please and thankyou.

Maeve said...

Hi Lauren, I absolutely love your videos - it gives me a lot of confidence to try mad colours! I would like to see more of the basics in changing the shape of the eye - esp if someone has deepset eyes (how to make them come out more) or if someone has very droopy eyes that go down at the sides (how to make them more level without turning them into a panda). I tune in most days to try a new look. Thanks for all the inspiration :) Ps: It's nigh on impossible to get cheap Mac online in Ireland except for Ebay - would be great to hear about any UK sites that sell mac and have V cheap shipping.

so, i just saw your makeup tutorials for the first time today and am so hooked. i'm a cosmetology student, so i know how to do a lot of things, i just love the ways you play with color and whatnot.

however, i did want to ask what the color is of your shadestick and if they still have it out. i was just on the MAC website and i'm slightly worried. lol. obviously, i don't expect you to contact me personally, but a little sidenote sometime would be nice. :] thank you for all you've done!

JuneFaith said...

been a subscriber of your channel for a while now.
love your make up tuts!

Zeny said...

Hi Lauren i love your videos and i wish i could have the same luck u have cause i wish i could be famous one day but i feel i have no talent at all well anyways i love ur accent and the way u do the makeup thingy hahaha.

I want u to know that i love England that is my favorite place in the world but ive never went there so im very interested in all about ur country and i was wondering if u can answer me a question.....ok? once ive heard something about that u (English people) have to use a mouthpiece to have ur accent. Im just curious about that and it would be so appreciate if u could answer me that question!!!

Thank a lot

Flossie said...

Yay now you have a blog to read aswell!!


Flossie said...

And to Zeny above, um no English people don't have to use a mouthpiece... neither do Geordie's. That would be wierd and i don't think you would bother trying to have a certian accent lol

Natalie said...

My name is Natalie. I am 17 years old and I just wanted to say thank you for being a positive female role model.I definately feel pressure to be thin and beautiful. You make me feel like being healthy is beautiful. I have struggled with eating disorders in my past but finally I am coming to terms with the fact that my happiness should not rely on the number on the scale. You are very beautiful and I hope to take pride in myself like you do. So, thank you.

I really love your make up tutorials on Youtube. You're so talented! I couldn't find on my own how to create those make ups.

I'd like to know if you could create a tutorial for the make up that this person (he's Juka, a Japanese singer) wears because I find it beautiful but I can't do it on my own...

Once more, you're doing good job. I hope to see new tutorials soon.

(I'm sorry if my English is not that good but I'm French...)
