      The way you blend your eyeliner is amazing! I’m pretty sure I’d look like a raccoon if I did that! 🙂 What kind of liner do you use? Great video and congrats 🙂

          Emily, I’m an optometrist and I implore you to stop rubbing your eyes like that! Eye rubbing can lead to corneal thinning and vision loss for anyone who is wondering. It was probably just for the sake of the video though; you probably usually use a brush to gently smudge it right? 😉
          You are beautiful though and your back-up dancer made my night. Congrats!

    You’re so sweet Cara! Only you could come up with the kindest of ideas to offer consolation prizes!! You are truly big-hearted and I’m sure kindness is the path to success. I have a feeling your 30s are gonna be big! Lots of love
    Oh and congrats to Emily Fox and her cheerful partner in crime! He deserves a prize of his own!
