Askmewhats Makeover: Grace for her Acquaintance Party

Shobe Grace, my dear sister-in-law, is only in her Freshman year in the Uni. She attended an event for her school called "Acquaintance Party" last weekend<--- funny they just had this party now and they've been studying for months now! LOL My dearest Shobe trusts me so much because she let's me cut her hair (let me tell you, she's so particular with her hair), and she let's me do her make-up as well!

She will be sporting a lovely white and a blue-green dress so I got inspired with the colors! She won an award that night! YAY! I am so proud of her! I think "Best Dressed/Look" Award! I am a proud sister!!!!

Here's Grace BEFORE
(it helps if she I think she had this notion that a BEFORE picture should look devastated! hahaha)

And here's Grace AFTER

She's got a lovely skin to start with. So I've used lesser amount of foundation for her. I've decided to do a strong eye look because it is a night event, I've also used a lovely PINK lipstick for her because it goes well with strong eyes = dainty lips (thanks Aly for the NYX lippies)
