Sorry ladies if i've been lagging a few days on posts, I know some of you had questions on past posts so I will try and answer them this week. Last week was super busy catching up with family from San Francisco and Canada- all were here to celebrate my sister's bday which was just absolutely amazing! It was beautiful and a lot better than when I had my 18th birthday and she of course was STUNNING. (Uh hello her big sis did her makeup! LOL)
My mom saw my sister then wanted me to do her makeup too! So I did hers, and my little sister's as well and they looked glam and ready to party! In a nutshell, the products I used on my sis to match her dress were MAC's "Parfait Amour", MUFE's infamous purple eyeshadow, and NYX "Black". For her lips, I used "Lavender Whip". On my mom, since her dress was gold, I used MAC e/s in "Goldmine", a mix of browns like "Mulch" and Milani's "Java Bean", and a few browns from last year's Smokey Eyes palette. I warmed up her complexion with MAC Blush in "Warm Soul", and brought out here eyes with Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner, Revlon Fantasy Lengths eyelashes, and adorned her lips with MAC's "Creme de Nude" cremesheen lipstick.
It was nice to see family I haven't seen in awhile, esp. ever since my parents moved to Washington, it's been hard keeping in touch with everyone. All the cousins and kids of course are so much older now since it's been years since we've seen some of them, and we GREW UP with most of them so it was nice to see the people they've become. The father-daughter dance made me tear up, as my dad and sis danced to Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me". And my sister cried when she said her speech as she wished that my other grandma was here to celebrate with her who passed last year.
The BF and his family also joined in the fun, and my feet were killing me at the end of the night running back and forth taking pictures of everyone, but it was such a great party and most importantly, my sister had the best time of her life and with her childhood friends. Her "friend" and escort Norman, had a surprise speech which was so sweet and romantic, they've known each other since they were 7 years old- and my dad almost had a heart attack because his other daughter, who seemed like a baby just yesterday- now has a BF of her own. LOL...awwww!
Anyway here are a few pics from the party, we also took studio pics the day after since mom said we had to "update" the one at her house (last time me and my sis took pics we were all little kids) so the parentals were happy campers. :)
