    Have you tried the L’Oréal pro glow foundation? If so, did you like it? I’ve heard lots of talk on USclip about it. How does it compare to the IT Cosmetics cc+ illumination? I have the original IT Cosmetics cc cream and love it.

    I’m laying here, in my quarantine/bed room, on day 6 of my New Years flu/sinus and ear infection adventure (lucky me); totally ready to get back to real life. Thanks for helping rebound from this odyssey of sickness with an easy, fresh look to get me back to the land of the living. Feel like a zero, look like a ten! 💜

  • Alli Butler
    Alli Butler 5 months ago

    Great look! What are all the brushes that you used? Do you have a tutorial on doing bronzer, blush, and highlighter on the same look? I’m confused as to where each one goes on the cheeks. It seems like many products on a small area. How much are they meant to overlap? The IT Cosmetics BB Cream did an amazing job! It’s a little out of my price range, at the moment, though. Have you found any cheaper ones that work anywhere near as good? You seriously impressed me when you managed to talk and put lip product on at the same time! I wish that you had shown how you fixed your mascara mistake! I get mascara on my eyelids so often, when applying mascara, that I try to remember to put on mascara before doing my eyeshadow because I can’t seem to fix it without, at least partially, ruining my eyeshadow. Thanks for all the help!

  • quietlyarrayed
    quietlyarrayed 5 months ago

    Glad y'all are all feeling better! I'm currently down with whatever had been passed around at work. I love the idea of sick-getting better tutorial! I think eyeliner is what makes or breaks my look. BB/CC cream, eyeliner, and lip balm are all I'll be able to wear Monday- unless anyone has some skin healing tips for dry, red, raw skin around mouth and nose?

    You should make a video on products that work fast like that mascara! Going to work every morning has made me changed the products I normally use. For example I changed my liquid foundation for a pressed powder one, etc.

  • Valérie Drouin
    Valérie Drouin 5 months ago

    Hi Emily, I've been following you for a long time and watched all your videos since that pink room in your other house. I rarely comment on any of your videos but I have to say that I really appreciate how you make videos out of what is happening in your life (like this one and the 31 days of glitter). They're so original and fun to watch! I also really appreciate the fact that you mostly use drugstore / affordable products. Thanks to you, I have bought that Covergirl blush in Sophisticated Sable - wow what a gem! Keep up the awesome videos! Xo

  • Sue Cone

    When I’m sick I always mask with a clay mask to get out impurities and follow up with a hydration mask. Then to be honest I just use a tinted sunscreen, some blush and I’m good.

    Bareminerals powder concealer is my best friend when I'm sick. Since I usually blowing my nose a lot, I use it for touch ups around that area where my coverage has worn down.

    Barbara Moore 5 months ago +1 are so committed to do your I can see you are still not feeling well. You are not a complainer but surely you must feel weak. You and your family are best favorite you tube channel. I enjoy your videos and your family videos make me feel that there are some normal families. Sadly, not many families like yours. Your children are so fortunate to be born into a family where they are loved and all their needs are met. Hope you feel better real soon.

    Totally dealing with stomach flu here. One thing I feel that is important after being sick, especially when you're dehydrated, or if you've had a head cold is using a sugar scrub and lip treatment on your lips. I super love the Chapstick Total Hydration in Sugar Plum. I then typically follow it up with NYX #thisiseverything. Lips return to former glory in softness!

    When I'm not going anywhere I like to give my skin a rest. I'll cleanse, put on some serums and top it off with a good oil. I will line my eyes and put on some lip balm. (so I don't scare someone who might knock on my door!) Get well!

I am super happy to see you test out the lip product, I almost bought some the other day on sale at Walgreens and I passed it up. I won't do that again. My bad! I was at Walmart yesterday shopping for makeup and Physicians Formula has a limited edition butter collections face palette for $11.88 which includes a fragrance. 💖

    I had a really bad sinus infection last year that lasted a month (I missed about 2 weeks of classes), and when I finally felt well enough to face the world, I did brows and a bold lip! The brows made my face look more defined and the brightness of my lips detracted from the fact I still looked a little gross. (Also, I was still blowing my nose and rubbing my eyes, so I kept it simple).

    My other half had a bug/cold all over the Christmas break and now we're back in work I have it. The last thing I want to do is wear make up when I'm unwell but I'm not going to work without it. I just do my usual routine. Hardly any of it left on though by the time I'm home in the evenings. Hate having a cold.
