Makeup for my sister Jess

(Sorry FB fam since y'all already saw these pics!)

I recently had an opportunity to do makeup for my sister, Jessica. If she ever slows down a sec to let me do her makeup, she always asks for a neutral look. It baffles me that that's her request as everything about my sister is out there and bold. Look, at her locs!

I gave her a neutral with a little kick. Well a kick that would be pleasing to her minimal makeup taste.

I know I wanted to put her look on the blog, but I cannot remember what I used on her! Eeks! I based her eyes with painterly paint pot and put a neutral off white-ish shadow on her lids, soft brown and a shimmering brown like MAC's Mulch eye shadow on her crease area. My sister doesn't really have a crease, so that presents a challenge. I didn't want to close up her eyes too much, so i smudged a dark shadow at her lashes to sub for liner. I used a black liner on her waterline and a bronze liner below and smudged. L'Oreal Voluminous Defining mascara on lashes. (I should have put some false lashes on her! The best way to bring out eyes without lots of color!) I used a MAC Stick Foundation on her (NC45). For her cheeks I used Maybelline's blush in Almond Love. Her pout was polished in a pinkish nude with MAC's Hug Me lipstick. (I LOVVVEE that lipstick on her!)

Thanks for the great comments. This year's smokey is pretty similar to last years the only difference which is minimal is the gray-silver part of the palette.

Look at your sister's tan, it looks so healthy. How do you like Mac's Stick Foundation? I'm thinking of trying that next since it's so portable to travel with.
