Carmindy Vision:What I See

Lois is amazing. The epitome of a whole woman. Her face speaks to what she’s accomplished and the wisdom that’s come along the way. I applaud her resistance to surgery. Who wants to look in the mirror and say, “I don’t know who that person is”?

Lois’s eyes are captivating and whoa, what outrageous bone structure. I wanted to highlight her elegance by playing up those cheekbones and baby blues.

First, luminizing face primer bounced light around her complexion, softening her fine lines. Lois has such great skin, I applied only the sheerest veil of foundation.

A touch of cream blush on the apples of her cheeks brought the radiance back to the dry areas common in most mature women. I used a nude lip liner to seal in her rose lipstick, preventing bleeding. A soft, matte brown eye shadow on the upper lid created depth and made her blue eyes pop. Or should I say detonate!

My parents feel I should focus on my studies, not my looks. If you saw pictures of my junior high makeup experiments, you’d agree with them.

I used to wear the weirdest eye shadows and heavy foundation. Once I ripped out all my lashes after tangling with a curler. I think I’ve now found the right balance—no more raccoon eyes!

When I was little, people used to pinch my nose—pointing out how there’s no bridge, unlike Western noses. But now I accept myself and am happy with how I look. My boyfriend thinks my nose is cute and says my smile is contagious!
