What is a good dupe for the Sephora Bullet Crease brush
It was the #221. An associate used it on me for a makeup look, & I can't find it in stores or on the site.  It was smaller than a typical crease brush but offered a lot of control, which as a beginner, I like. I find normal crease brushes too big to put color exactly where I want it, personally.

How do you build up Dior Forever liquid foundation to full coverage?
I have Dior's Forever liquid foundation, which is supposed to be buildable to full coverage, but I can't seem to get it past light coverage. I use a sponge, and don't want to switch to a brush or use my fingers. Am I supposed to wait for a layer to dry, then reapply? If so, how long does this foundation take to dry in order to apply another layer?    I really like this foundation, but I'm used to wearing foundations that require only one application. What is the best way to get this foundation to its fullest coverage?   Thank you!

What kind of makeup does she have on that makes her eyes so big?
Watch the first few seconds of the clip and then fastforward to the last few seconds. Notice one half the face is without makeup and then compare the eye size. I think it's heavy eyeliner coupled with heavy eye ink liner.  I just can't get how she made her pupil look so big too.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOrTQ9TU-d8

Best highlighters and matte bronzers for NC42-45 skin?
Hello,   I am having a hard time finding highlighters that don't look too ashy or too dark, and matte bronzers that aren't too orange or too muddy on my skin. I go as pale as NC42 in the winter, and tan up to an NC45 in the summer, and I know a lot of mixed-race, lighter-skinned black girls (like me), hispanic, indian/desi and east asian ladies also fall into this complexion range.   Do you have any product recommendations?    THANKS!
