Being Sisterly

I'm reposting this because a few months ago I accidentally [CTRL]+[Z] one too many times and somehow Blogger ate all the content from the post on my sister's grade 11 semi-formal. It was months ago (hence the old blog URL on the watermark) but I wanted to keep it on the blog for the sake of it.
So housekeeping rant over, I did my sister's hair and makeup on the 20th June and here are photos!
I love my sister. Three years younger than me, she stands about 170cm tall, model-thin and has monolids, really thick hair and her eyebrows are a species of their own so it was fun and crazy and there was a lot of laughing and panicking and running late.

Makeup mess

I used Face of Australia Face Base primer, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation in 52 Vanilla and 53 Light Beige, Laura Mercier Undercover concealer duo in UC-3, Face of Australia Translucent Loose Powder, NYC Sunny Bronzer, Rimmel Santa Rose and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. Her brows don't need touching. The eyes were a combination of Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette (Bootycall on the inner corner, Half Baked and Suspect on the lid, YDK in the outer corner and Busted to smoke it out with Tease to blend) and L'Oreal Colour Infallible in Tender Caramel on the lower lash line. I used Rimmel's ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Black and Bourjois Liner Feutre and the Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume and Curl Mascara to finish the eyes. She wore her own Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait.

We did wannabe-Alexa Chung waves in her hair with a Remington straightener, Tresemme Heat Tamer Protective Spray and Fudge Soft-Touch Anti-Frizz Iced Raspberry and Vanilla hairspray. The curls wore really well, and the photos below were taken when she came home after and they'd dropped nicely to look quite pretty and natural.

Her dress was $20 from Jacqui.E at DFO, her necklace was something like $3 from Lovisa and her blazer was from H&M.
