Questions from Facebook!

Hey beauties!! So I posted a status on my Facebook page about FAQ's.... I wanted to answer everyone but it got to confusing on there... I copied some of your questions and answered them for you :) Hope this helps!! Let me know if you want me to add any questions.


1. What color is your hair?
I dye my own hair :X I use Garnier Olia
I always use 2 boxes and I buy one medium brown and 1 dark brown!

2. Hair care tips to help coloured hair grow and become thicker and healthier
Biotin helps hair growth! Again everyone is different so some things may work
better for some people. I'll do an updated hair care routine ASAP!

3. What are your favorite extension brand?
Bellami hair 100000% :) I have a 5$ off coupon: Carlibel55

4. How many times a week do you wash and blow out your hair?
I wash my hair every 2 or even 3 days! My hair never gets greasy (luckily)
so I can make it work for 3 days! 


1. What foundation is good to cover up pimples?
Try getting the neutrogena concealer with acne treatment in it!
apply that under your foundation!! Use a BB cream :)

2. What perfume do you use?
Just bought "Be Enchanted" from bath & body works!

3. Can you tell us how you keep your armpits so light 
I don't do anything! I just shave them with a normal disposable razor!

4. Any advice for ance and ance make up me and 3 friends struggle bad!
I used to have acne! One thing I love is astringent... Sea Breeze
and also Oxy pads are great for drying up pimples. Everyone has different skin
so you may have to try some things before you find what works best for you!

5. Are heels supposed to be comfortable? Do you use any kind of cushioned soles?
The balls of my feet kill me after wearing pumps for more than an hour Are Louboutin's
more comfortable/better fit because they are more expensive. I am sure
your a heel person and your used to wearing them. HELP and THANKS
Oh god no!! Heels kill me! I have flat feet so all heels bother me more than usual!!
Wedges are definitely a lot more comfortable... my suggestion, save your highest shoes
for nights where you no you'll be sitting A LOT! lol

6. What facial cleansers do you uses daily, your skin looks amazing for someone that uses make up everyday!!
I have a video on my skin care routine.. I use the same face wash that I used in that video!
I use Nerium now its an anti aging cream that I love... people say my face looks different..
I think my skin just looks younger and it's softer!!! Click HERE to see info about it.


1. What is the best Under eye concealer?! One that doesn't crease?I love the Laura Mercier secret camouflage, definitely worth the $$!That using my beauty blender AH. Heaven. I'm going to make a video!

2. What is your favorite foundation?
Foundation.,. right now HD by Makeup Forever
but i've been using Smashbox BB cream in place and I love it!

3. Any suggestion for a good primer for the oily skin???
Right now I love Laura Mercier primer .. just bought the smash box oil control primer!
I'll keep you posted!

4. is makeup primer really important before applying makeup?
I dont think so personally.. I use it sometimes but on a day to day basis I don't!

5. Hey sweet Carli girl! I have watched pretty much all ur videos but u have an insane
amount of eyeshadows! Lol! After having four kids I'm trying to make time to put my
face on everyday. Is there one MAC pallet that u recommend? Saving time  from flipping
pallets? I kno u did the "on the go school video" but not necessarily rushing in the morning
just simplifying. Like a travel pack. What to bring on vacation without bringing ur whole
vanity lol!
MAC you can make custom palettes !!! I have one with all biege and brown colors in it! Honestly though for rushing and very light makeup try the ELF palette... its literally $10 and has every color!

6 Good brushes for Makeup!!!
So making a video for this xxo


1. Are your eyes real or contacts?
REAL! Swear :) They always look brighter when I look into natural sunlight

2. What is your ethnicity?
I'm Russian, Austrian and Irish

3. How tall are you?
5 foot 2 and 1/2 !!! lol shrimp status :)

4. What quote, you repeatedly live by to inspire yourself day by day situations?
"Stay Strong because You're worth it." Its the background on my phone!
It really helps seeing it :)

5.  It seems you were artistic when you were younger , like me.
What inspired you to go into makeup and how is the whole experience ?
Yes!! I use to take art classes when I was younger.. Always loved
to draw and paint.. got into makeup around 13 or 14 when my older
sister would always wear it! Started collecting and practicing and through
trial and error I figured what looks good and what doesn't :)

6.What do you do for living? Are u a makeup artist? A model?
I own my own business doing makeup for special events like weddings,
sweet 16's, proms etc.  :) Notice the ads before my videos? That also pays me once a month. I am not a model.. I have done a few modeling
gigs, but never pursued it! 

7. Are u gonna sell anymore of your clothes :) I want to buy them all
Eventually :) I have to clean it out again!!! hehe

8. How old are you??
22! I'll be 23 on October 17 YAY LIBRAS! lol

9. Hey! what's the meaning of your tattoo, the one that has like 2 hearts.. it's so cute btw (:
It means "If your heart is always open, Love will find its way in." :) <3

10. Have you ever traveled to other countries before and If yes then where ? :)
Yes!! I've been to the Bahamas, Haiti, Mexico, Canada and a bunch of other islands !!
My dream vacation would be to backpack through Europe! I want to go all
over! Australia is also on the top of my list.

11. Do you get injection to make your lips bigger or those are your natural lips ???!!!!
A lot of you have asked this lately!! I have never had any sort of plastic surgery done!!
Never had lip injections!! I've had big lips forever, everyone used to make fun of me! 
but it was good because I was a pro at putting on lipstick without looking at age 10 :)

12. Has someone broke your heart? and how did you get over it .
 I have had moments in my life where I felt like my heart was broken,
but you can only pity yourself for so long. You have to accept the change,
get yourself together, and move on. I believe everything does happen for a reason, so
although there are times where I have been completely broken, I've always recovered stronger
than before :) Positive energy, country music and all of my beautiful followers have really
changed me for the better !!

13. How do you find the money to keep up with your shopping addiction?
Haha new this was coming... I do have a slight addiction but I work hard for my money
so its fun to splurge here and there. I own my own business doing hair and makeup
so I'm always booked on weekends and sometimes during the week for events like weddings
sweet 16's, proms, etc. It's good money and I absolutely love making people feel beautiful,
so I really got lucky that I can do what I love and get paid for it.
*I also now get paid by advertising companies hence the ads on my videos.

14. What gets your attention with a man.... not a guy or a boy.. but a Man... like one you would
really like to know and understand? money? status? Teeth? Hair? Popularity? Strength?
Emotions? you tell me. I asked YOU a question! ;P lol
A Respectful, genuine person is most attractive in my eyes. A man who has values and
knows how to be a gentlemen. Unfortunately this day and age its very hard to find any
of those things. Physically i'm attracted to taller guys.. I love nice eyes, nice smile.. but 
all those things do not matter if they treat you like crap. I know what I have to offer in a 
relationship.. so I wont settle for less than I deserve!

15. How do you deal with the negativity that some people have towards you?
Don't get me wrong, it does hurt to see people be so mean when they don't even know me,
but realistically if I tried pleasing everyone, i'd never succeed. I know I am a good person,
and my passion is to help people. Some people don't understand that there are people in
this world who really do have love and drive and passion for people! It's ok because most
of you can see (HOPEFULLY) how genuine I am, and how much I appreciate all the love
and feedback I get. Honestly, I am in love with what I do and the good out weighs the bad :)

16. Any advice for girls who want to start their own channel?
Be yourself. That's all you can be. If it is something that you really want to do,
keep up at it, continue to learn new things, and make it the best video it could
be! I think i'm proof that hard work does pay off. Don't give up on your dreams!

17. What's your biggest fear!
I have a huge fear of spiders and bugs... I know typical for a girl... but mine is
serious.... like I literally have had a minor heart attack in certain situations :X


1. What camera do you use?
Nikon 1 LOVE IT

2. What editing software do you use?
Final Cut Pro X I have a IMAC

3. Lighting for videos?!

    1. I meant kit for yourself is the same for your business. sorry

  4. hey..... do you know of luxy hair extensions, and what do you think of them, would you recommend them? thinking about buying some

    1. I bought Luxy hair extension and I hate them! I had to go to a hair salon to get them cut because when I put them in they looked choppy and uneven. I bought the thicker hair thank god(I have thin hair) I also had to put a toner on the hair since it looked more yellow then bleach blonde... Hope that answered your question... I would not recommend you wasting your money on shitty quality. Next time I buy extensions I will buy the ones Carli bought... Or haircandy? I can't remember the website
