I love that you don't flaunt your connections. I look up to you because of that, other people just brag about who they know or who they work/worked with. I love that you don't. I work with some cool people too but I'm always afraid to say who they are exactly because I don't want to get used for it. I've had that happen to me before.
Just thought I'd tell you that I find you amazing. (=

aw why thank you :)

Hey Kat!
Got another suggestion for ya.
I recently picked up Bare Escentuals/Rare Minerals' Blemish Therapy at Sephora. It's a light powder than can be used as a spot treatment with or without makeup (i.e. powders, concealers, foundations, etc.) It also works as a concealer, reducing the redness of blemishes and evening out the skin tone.
Sephora's info says, "This Bare Escentuals breakthrough natural, mineral-based product is clinically proven to quickly and effectively clear and heal blemishes. RareMinerals™ Skin Blemish Therapy combines the non-irritating, exfoliating properties of our patent-pending 100% pure RareMinerals™ concentrate with the acne-fighting benefits of natural sulfur to treat acne and blemishes while preventing future breakouts from forming. It penetrates pores to control blackheads. Plus, its translucent tint neutralizes and diffuses the look of blemishes. Use it as an overnight spot treatment to heal blemishes and also as a daytime treatment under bareMinerals makeup. It's perfect for all skin types and ages."
It works extremely well and can be found in Sephora stores and on Sephora.com (http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P202656&categoryId=B70). It retails for around $28, but is currently on sale for $19.
Hope this helps some of your followers! :)

Morgan you may have a job in your future :)

Okay, so I need make-up advice. I think you've answered this but I'm not sure.

1.) How do I keep my foundation on? I use Covergirl Tru Blend. I've been told you put on the liquid foundation then the powder. I am not sure if that's true.

2.) You know what I look like, what would be the best colors for me? I feel like sometimes I either wash myself out or have too dark of eye-shadow?

Yes liquid goes before powder, or at least in my experience it does. Also in my experience, the drugstore foundations just aren’t that great. Would you be able to spring for Mac or Bobbi Brown or Benefit foundation?

What I can suggest from the drugstore is Almay eyeshadow. They have pallets based on your eye color. They work wonders!

Miss Kat, will I get laughed at and completly shunned from society if I buy these (http://www.rebelsport.com.au/ecom/rebel/product_detail.aspx?id=33378&cat=25) to wear when I move from Australia to Indiana? I'm not keen on having my toes fall off because I'm walking around campus with converse on.

I’m not sure of Indiana’s weather, but I’ve seen people wear crazier things than those! If you are comfortable in them and they keep you warm, that’s all that matters!

maybe go with a bright necklace or bracelets, or earrings.
or a colored cargo jacket.
and maybe some boots.. heeled boots.

Fashion advice needed!

So me and my friend are going to be dressing up and going out for New Years eve and I have picked out this dress. I know it needs a pop of color but do you have any suggestions as to what? Also I need some help with shoes. I am normally a flat girl because I have a knee problem so it is difficult for me to wear heels but it is also winter and I need to keep my feet warm. What shoes would you recommend?

Can you send the picture again? I can’t seem to open it.

This is the dress I am thinking about for New Years Eve

You never know! All I know is that the more people ask, the more annoying it could get haha.
