I love this girl.
No really, like really really love her.
She is my dear sister, my best friend and the one I mention in a lot of other blog entries. She is an amazing encourager, my biggest fan and beautiful from the inside out! I’ve always looked up to for her amazing ability to unconditional love others.
I am extremely grateful she is allowing me to post these before and after pictures. Thanks Lisa!
Before: No makeup!
And after: These shots were taken in beautiful downtown Greensboro, NC. Well it’s like one main road, with some fun old buildings and favorite local restaurants and shops. Photos taken by the awesome Alexa’s Photography.
She is so stunning! I love her little red dress. When we shot these photos, I was 8 months pregnant, and I was like “don’t stand next to me!” She was all cute and pretty, and I was all swollen and waddling. There is nothing that makes you feel larger than an elephant than standing next to a tiny size 2 girl. I’m kidding of course! (no, wait I’m totally not! lol)
She looks so exotic in that picture (above.) Our dad’s side is hispanic and our momma is a european blonde. My goal with her makeup was to keep her skin really fresh and radiating. I wanted a natural glammed up makeup look, that when looking at her you saw only a beautiful girl, not a ton of makeup. And yes, that is her real hair. No extensions!
Jay walking at it’s finest!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these before and afters as much I have! I love how makeup has the power to transform women. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman exuding confidence! Happy Monday folks!
