How are you able to blend so smoothly?? I can never get mine to look so polished!! You are SOOO talented!! Wow.....and how do you do the hair so 'silk' like?

Thanks, I use Cotton pads for blending, the type used for womens make up removal without any moisturiser on them of coarse.
The hair, to be honest, I struggle with every time.
This time it was just a case of using 2H, HB, 2B in layers, building it up with long strokes and varying the pressure, to create the illusion of depth.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my work. :)

Thank you, she is very pretty, but where I come from in the UK, she is relativly unknown.
She is a lot more well known in spain, although she did have a part in the movie "snakes on a plane" so who knows she may become world famous yet. :)
