  1. Very authentic,I'm Egyptian :) I love the tape tip. It's so funny whenever I'm watching your tutorials I catch myself making my eyes wide and raising my eyebrows along w/ you!

  6. Fantastic look!
    I'm really glad you were able to show us the eye-lining, that's the part I have a lot of trouble with.
    Definitely going to try this one out. :D Thanks for the inspiration Julia!

  7. Why is non-waterproof mascara used when applying to the false and natural eyelashes?

  8. i think she used non-waterproof mascara to protect the integrity of the false lashes... so they'd last longer and be easier to clean after use.

    this is a really nice look for a night out.

  9. You are absolutely beautiful and I am in love with this look. You are such an inspiration. :]

  10. @Amber Wave: Yes, non waterproof mascara is used because waterproof mascara is very hard to clean off false lashes.

    Thanks everyone!

  23. Hey Julia. Congratulations for the channel. I personally love make up and as today I'm going to an indian dance show, I wanted to give it a try in this. Have a look at my result (without the greens as I don't have the colours!)

    Hi Julia, I'm just dropping in to say I really appreciate what you do with all those tutorials - tonight I stumbled upon your YouTube channel for the first time and I've been watching the uploaded clips - wonderful job!
    I'm a photomodel from Bulgaria, some of that would really serve me well, for I'll be going for some different looks... Maybe I'll share some photos in real future with the result.

    In short, THANK YOU!!!

    hi,

    ich schreib dir mal auf deutsch as you understand both languages :) du hast es echt drauf, um es mal zu sagen, wie es ist. aber genug der beweihräucherung. ich hab jetzt einige videos von dir gesehen und das ist das erste, in dem du mit lose powder gearbeitet hast. ich such schon nach ewigkeiten nach einem, der genau dem zweck entspricht, für den du ihn verwendest. ich hab sonen mineral scheiß und der arbeitet sich immer in die haut ein, wenn ich in auftrage, anstatt zum später entfernen draufzubleiben? ich hoffe, du verstehst meinen stümperhaften versuch, dich nach rat und einem produkttipp zu fragen.

    mach weiter so. you are off da hook :D

    liebe grüße aus deutschland (berlin) wherever you are right now...

    I was just surfing the youtube and bumped into the foundation and concealer tutorial u were demonstrating. I saw also others you've made as well. I thought u were great! I've never done my eyes before, so I thank you for including such dramatic and everyday eye makeup. Loved ur tutorials so far! You're definitely a true makeup artist. Iam wondering, where can I get your kind of makeup. Is there a specific place I can get a bargain?

  44. Hello Julia , you are really awesome , and i think that make matches you ,you don't have to have arabic heritage to look that way , it is truly nice , and i loved the eyebrows . i'm Egyptian by the way .
    i've a question for you if you don't mind , i have a real dark black eyebrows , i've stained it in one of the salons in Egypt to the brown color , but as you know stain fades away after while, now i am in USA and have no idea how to stain them into brown color , so if you don't mind would you ,tell me how to do that ,putting into consideration that i have never used any stain in my my life by myself ,do you have any tips in general for the dark black eyebrows
