This pic of my cousins & I was taken about 2 years ago at Stone Mountain, Georgia during one of our legendary girl weekends.
I generally refer to them as my little cousins, but I’ve recently come to realize that Miahsje ain’t little no mo’! I’m not sure how someone can simultaneously be sad & proud, but that’s the best way I know to describe what I’m feeling right now. MiMi is one of the great loves of my life, so when she asked me to come help her get ready for her senior prom, I gassed up the whip & rode out. I wanted to share the family moment w/ y’all but I knew this post would be picture-heavy, so check out this video…
PRIMER: Mary Kay eye primer
BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
SHADOW: To coordinate with MiMi’s royal blue dress, I wanted to create a blue smoky eye. I started by applying Milani’s Blue My Mind e/s to the majority of her outer lower eyelid. For a pop of color, I added matte, hot pink e/s (from the Shany 120 palette) to her inner corner. After blending that out, I used matte camel e/s (from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette) to cover her brow bone area. Then I went back in w/ my pencil brush & applied a frosty champagne colored e/s just below the arch of her eyebrow for added drama (@ her mother’s request, LOL).
OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to fill in Miahsje’s eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on her lashes. I used Wet N Wild cream liner in black to define her upper lashline & Ruby Kisses HD gel liner in Teal Shimmer on her waterline.
