SB:How to pick the perfect red for your skin tone (Fair, Medium & Dark)?
According to Vanessa, picking a great red for your skin tone “can be a little challenging at first”. However, by following her simple rules below, it will make the search a lot easier:

SB:How to make your eyeliner last all day?
When applying eyeliner, Vanessa suggests trying to use a couple of products. If you find your pencil smudges or wears off easily by the natural oils of your lids, “apply pencil first followed by a similar shade in eyes shadow. Simply place the eyes shadow directly over the top of the eyeliner, using a tight small brush so you can be precise with your shadow application.”.
Vanessa suggests trying- Rimmel London Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer or the Rimmel London Special Eyes Eyeliners in any shade!!
Pair with: Glam' Eyes Mono Eye Shadow: Jet Black, Dusk, or Plum Romance for a matte finish.
Explore the Glam Eyes HD Pallets: For a shimmer finish on top of your liner. This will add brightness, and dimension to your liner.
SB:The Best Products to use when filling in your brows?
According to Vanessa, “No matter what Rimmel London product you end up using to fill in your brows, make sure you apply it softly,”.
It's important to build up your eyebrow shape slowly, rather than piling on too much from the start. Vanessa recommends for a medium brown to dark chocolate brow – Rimmel London Mono Glam Eyes Pallet in Dusk and for Redheads, she recommends using Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze
