When my youngest daughter Haley hit her Jr High years I heard the constant pleading to wear make-up like “all of her friends.” But I stood my ground! Having an older daughter, I had already went thought this before, and the rule was 8th grade. And I can promise you that Trystan, my older daughter, kept me on track with that. There was no way she was going to let Haley wear make-up before her:) You have to love sibling rivalry.
As Haley entered the summer of her 8th grade year I came with the idea of having a “teaching make-up” class for her. I often see these young girls wearing make-up too dark and too much for what I like. To me, make-up is to be used to accent our favorite features, whether it is your eyes, cheek bones, or lips. So I called in a professional: Michelle from Lipstick & Luster, who does beautiful work for brides, to come teach my girls how to properly apply their make-up. Haley invited some friends over and they all had a great time listening and observing the do’s and dont’s of make-up. I have to say I learned quite a bit myself:) Wishing I had done this for Trystan when she first start wearing make-up, I chose for her to be the one that Michelle applied the make-up on. This worked great because with Trystan being a senior I took advantage of the moment and took her out for a mini senior session.
Thank you so much Michelle you did a great job and I highly recommend anyone at any age to take this class!
