my first make-up model

my mom always said she had my sister so I'd have a friend...
and I did,....she was not only my best-friend, but my "ever-ready", just-next-door-to-my-bedroom, make-up model...

I gave her many make-overs...

this is from the "elementary school" series...posing in the studio known as my bedroom, shot by yours truly
and the one below is from the high school days series.....



but i felt like a proud mama, on the day of my sisters wedding...

to know that this day meant so much to her...and to know, that I was again, putting make-up on my little sister on her wedding day...one of the most amazing days of her life...i felt so honored and so proud of the little girl that played Barbie's and Matchbox cars with me...

I wanted her to look so perfect that day...that when I stood next to her as she said her vows, I realized that we never found her Vera Wang veil, that she payed so much to have from the store, where girls were trying on dresses for the Golden Globes....not the ones yesterday, but 3 years ago....

She felt pretty....especially after we trimmed her false eyelashes a little....they can feel like huge butterflies have landed on your eyelids!

Thanks sister for always letting me make you over!

all i can think of when you say something about your sister is when you said that she gave you a complex about your teeth and nose lol, so everytime you're like "my sister..." i think "buthead ..."

Kandee I can see you have blond hair in this picture. Do you have a picture of yourself with blond hair? I think you looked great, so did your sister.
