My beautiful little sister, Carlie, was willing to be my first victim on this make-up blog experiment. The above photo is the before picture we took of her.
Carlie has had eczema, a skin condition, since she was little. For those of you unfamiliar with this condition, it leaves the skin unbearably dry and patchy if untreated. So, before I started Carlie's make-up, I was sure to use a moisturizer (which is recommended even for those of you that don't have eczema!)
The look I did on Carlie is one that I jokingly called "The New Yorker," mainly because it looks effortless but has a big pop of red-lip gloss to create a flawless finish. In my head, it's the perfect look for the city because it takes virtually no time, but makes a statement.
What I used:
Light Bare Escentuals foundation, Sonia Kashuk concealer under the eyes
Eyeshadows: "Shroom" by MAC
"Glamazon" by Too Faced
Mascara: Maybelline Colossal Volum Express
Blush: "Lust to Love" by Too Faced
Gloss: "Strawberry my Daiquiri" by the Balm
