My seester Cheryl and I did a little bonding over makeup today! To say that she isn't the makeup addict that I am is like the Black Knight's exclamation in Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail upon having his limbs cut off: "It's only a flesh wound!" The woman almost never wears much makeup. She doesn't have a regular office job, so she doesn't see much point.
SO, I begged her to let me do her face and frankly, I think she is GORGEOUS!! So here is the before shot, actually with foundation and concealer, because we almost forgot the photos altogether:
Then after I worked my magic:
We didn't do a before picture for me because we were racing against nap time for my nephew, so here is my finished look:
We used the very same colors except for the foundation and concealer and powder...me being the paleface and she having a swimming pool in her neighborhood.
Yeah, we're related! Now tell me who is older...no fair cheating!!
