My Sister's Graduation

My sister had her high school graduation last March 26, 2010. I did her make-up as well as our mom's.

I used the following products:
Smashbox primer
Fanny Serrano in Organza
ArtDeco translucent loose powder
Fashion 21 concealer in Almond
4u2 Classic e/s palette
Nichido eye pencil
Avon Great Lash mascara
MAC Mocha blush (mom)
Smashbox UnderCover blush (sis)
MAC Twig l/s (mom)
MAC Rainbeau (sis)

This was the first time that I did my mom's make-up. I was nervous and excited at the same time. My mom has been my ultimate beauty and style icon. Honestly, I wish I could have done better. I am looking forward to do her make-up again.

I think I did a better job on my sister's make-up. I opted for prime look to accentuate her youthful features. We can't be sixteen forever, right?

I believe i did a good job on the choice of blush and on my contouring and highlighting. After much scrutiny of my work, I realized that I need to work more on brows (especially my mom's) hehehe :). Morever, I could have applied primer on my mom's nose because it tends to get oily fast.

By the way, my mom's 49. My goal was to make her look five years younger. Your thoughts?


  1. Your mom looks beautiful! Not that she outstaged your sister or anything who by the way looks beautiful as well! but I think you got your goal, ot make your mom look younger. Either that or shes naturally gifted haha =)miss you Carl!
