This is my gorgeous older sister, Rene! I took an impromptu trip to Charlotte to visit her seeing as it was her birthday this past weekend! She is a mother of two under the age of 4(my sweet little nephews!) and has little time to get ready because they take most of her time. I was able to babysit for her while she went out for her birthday with her husband, and so I offered to perk up her makeup a bit.
What I used:
Neutrogena Eyemakeup Remover- I swiped off any messy mascara and runny eyeliner that was still present after she washed her face. This is my one and only eye makeup remover because it works so well on anything and is CHEAP!
Tarte Creaseless Concealer: This is the step that made ALL the difference with a slight dusting of powder to set it under the eyes. It really brightens up her whole face! (She had already applied Tarte BB Tinted Moisturizer prior to me applying any makeup)-Buy it here for 24$
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eyeliner in Espresso: Buy Here (I used this on the bottom lash line and Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink on the top lash line). I blended the top lash liner with a little bit of taupe/espresso colored eyeshadow from this Nars Palette.
Loreal Voluminous Mascara- Buy Here
We curled her lashes with a Shu Umera Curler and then used this Loreal Mascara on her.
Last, but not least, I used this Kat Von D Everlasting Blush in Bellisima(a lovely peachy pink with no shimmer) on her. I think this color is super versatile and could work for any skin tone. I highly recommend this blush!
I also did her hair, using a straightening iron to flatten out the front pieces and a large curling iron to get some nice waves, curling away from the face…Needless to say, I think she looked amazing!! So glad I was able to visit them. 🙂
