She's not your OLDER sister!

You have no idea how many times I hear this, and frankly am sick of hearing it! But yes she is, she is nearly 10 years older but looks so much younger. I hope this runs in the family as I want to look this good when I am in my forties.

When any woman comes to visit, they get a make over; whether they like it or not and my sister is no exception. To be fair, no one ever asks me for a make over, they just get collared in to it. I was keen to try a new foundation on my sister because I really love it. Like me, she is keen to find the perfect one that can be applied with minimum fuss to achieve a fresh faced, naturally radiant and flawless look.

So here are a few pictures of the transition:


My sister does wear make up normally; just a bit of concealer, blush and lip gloss. That's it! Here she is with No Make up. Still stunning (if she weren't my sister I would hate her, biatch)

A brief description of My Sis's skin:
Skin Type: My Sis has very dry but sensitive skin so I needed both a moisturiser and primer to prevent the foundation leaving dry patches as it was absorbed. She uses Dermalogica moisturiser and I used an Obsessed Minerals Beauty Fluid in Riviera as a primer. Being in her early 40s, she has only the minimum of a few wrinkles under the eyes and round the mouth.

Uneven skin tones: Like me and all asian women, she has undereye darkness and uneven skin tone on the forehead and round the mouth. Her eye lids are darker than the rest of the face.

Face shape: She has an even proportioned face. The eyes aren't too close or wide apart, the forehead, cheeks and chin are equally spaced and generous lips with softly square jaw line.

Eye shape: She has deep set eyes and they are slightly hooded on the outer corners. Her eyes are huge and she has amazing thick and long lashes. Her eyes tend to droop at the outer corners in an almond shape.

So here we are with foundation:

I used a primary layer of Coastal Scents Undercover HD foundation in Shade ST5, with another layer in specific places like under the eye, round the nose and chin. No concealer was needed. My sister has a pink undertone to her skin, whereas mine is orange. So we were not surprised with the big difference in shades we prefer in the range. I am a shade ST10.

Now we move on to the final look. My sister wanted a going out look that was polished and sophisticated, that she could also tone down to wear as an every day look.


Products used:
Eyes: MAC Brule (all over), Soba (crease) and Satin Taupe (top lash line and inner corner). Ricepaper to highlight.
MAC Teddy Eyeliner
Clinique High Impact Mascara in black.

Lips: MAC Retro Lipstick and e.l.f Studio Minty Lipgloss in Boston

Cheeks e.l.f Studio Peachy Keen, Sleek MakeUp Luminous Pressed Powder as a bronzer.

I can't show a full face shot for privacy reasons but I am grateful that she has let me show a half face portion!

Would you like to be my next victim, I mean volunteer?

  8. Thank you, I chose the background based when I had my colours done!

    And thank you for the compliments about my sister, I am definitely the ugly duckling in our clan! We get out youthful looks from our mother I think! she swears by vaseline around the eyes and mouth at night.

    The make up isn't that interesting but the real work is in getting the foundation just right! I'm pretty proud that it looks flawless. I'd be a crap make up artist if I didn't listen to my "client" and made her up to look like Pammy!

  17. Your sister looks a lot like you, but she looks fantastic with or without makeup.

    And you are NOT the Ugly Duckling, you're beautiful just as you are.

    I'm just grateful someone is doing tutorials with Asian kin, and who's a professional makeup artist.

    Your videos are inspiring, warm and humourous as is this blog. Please keep sharing your talent!

  21. Wow, goodness she is beautiful, and certainly young looking for her age! But then again so are you. I have the same thing with my sister, though she is only 5 years older than me it does tend to grate on my nerves when people don't believe me!
