I am lucky enough to live within an hour and a half of my Aunt J. My mother's sister. A few weeks ago I traveled to their house to do my 15 year old cousin's hair and makeup for her winter formal.
Doesn't she look like the epitome of a beautiful 15 year old?
Then C, A's little sister, asked if I would come do her hair and makeup for her 7th grade winter dance. They also bribed me with a pre-screening of The Princess and the Frog. Free food, family, princes, and middle school dances? How could I refuse?
My Uncle M. took me and C to see the new Disney princess movie at a movie theatre where you can order food while you watch. It was so much fun. I was laughing the whole time!
It was funny and beautiful and sweet just like all the other princess movies! One of my new favorite characters of all time now is Charlotte (in the pink dress at the bottom). She was hilarious!
Here is the beautiful young lady, C, getting ready for her dance:
Can you believe she is 12 years old?
It's hard doing a 12 year olds hair and makeup. She is at that age where girls think thick black eyeliner and globs of mascara are what makes a girl cool. Her mom doesn't let her wear anything. I tried to make a happy medium with some sparkly sheer purple eyeshadow, mascara, and some rasberry lipgloss.
Looking lovely in her outfit! She made the black velvet and a darling little Prada pouch look gorgeous.
C said her dance was fun and everyone loved her big curls and the pretty black feather clip that pinned her hair back.
It is so nice to have such beautiful girls that I can call my cousins. It is also flattering that they like for me to do their hair and makeup, since I think I am lacking in both of those fields. Haha.
Pray for my finals.
