It’s been almost two years since I published the makeover I did on my twin sister, Erica (read: Sis Has Got Her Groove Back) back in April 2010. If you can remember, Erica aka “Plain Jane” isn’t a beauty addict like myself. As a mother, wife and events planner, she has a very busy schedule, so she prefers comfort and simplicity over the fuss of makeup.
Two years later, she has made changes to her makeup routine, but she still prefers to keep it to a minimal with just blush, eyeliner and lip gloss. What can I say, she’s a natural beauty! Recently, she started her own events planning business and I had the opportunity of doing her makeup for her photo shoot. She was aiming for a casually chic look, so she reminded me, nothing dramatic like last time.
I used NYX’s Caviar & Bubbles Eye Palette – Applied a neutral color to her lids and added a kick with the deeper browns in the crease.
I applied Ardell Lashes #113 for a little dramatic effect.
MAC’s Dainty Blush was applied to the apples of her cheeks.
Since I spiced it up with the eyes, I went subtle with the lips. I completed the look with MAC’s Cremesheen lipstick in Ravishing and Laura Mercier’s Bare Beam gloss.
I think she’s simply gorgeous!
