Before & Afters Makeup

Mother’s Day Makeover – Pam & Jamie

I’m so excited to share with you all my first mother makeover in honor of Mother’s Day.

As soon as Jamie & Pam stepped out of their car I could feel their warmth, they completely radiated light. (and not just because they both have beautiful silky blonde hair)

This beautiful video (by the ever so talented Unicorn Sister Janae Godfrey) really catches the spirit of the sweet relationship between Jamie and her mom and also the awe inspiring life Pam has lead.

Thank you both so so much for sharing a piece of your story with us, (and for sharing that sweet baby of yours! Just delicious!)

(I used the makeup capsule on all of the mother’s from this project:)
Pam is wearing Maskcara IIID Foundation in Linen & Walnut foundation with pink grapefruit blush & Pearl Illuminator.
I filled her brows with (don’t freak out) MAC Brun 
Sebastian Liner on her lips with Pink Grapefruit blush layered & topped with City lips plumping gloss.
Sunrise & warmth from the Naturally Pretty Palette  on her lids and around her bottom lashline
& L’Oreal voluminous liner and mascara

    I can’t believe you were able to use Mac Brun on her light eyebrows! I need to get my hands on this miracle product.

    Beautiful looks!

    I am always amazed at the makeovers you do! The women you choose are beautiful in the before, though – you just somehow find a way to “up” their natural beauty. Great job! Love to see you work your magic.
    Have a great week!

    I love your makeovers, Cara! They are never overdone and your clients never look uncomfortable, like they aren’t themselves anymore.
    Also, it’s amazing what a difference filling in the eyebrows a bit can make!

    Hi Cara, such a gorgeous makeover! 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever seen you use City Lips before, what do you think of their product? Is it just a temporary lip plumper, or does it actually increase the size of lips over time?

    I just love how naturally beautiful all of your makeovers are! I was just astounded by the genuine love these girls had for their mothers, the same I feel for my mother and mother in law. These beautiful stories made this is 37 1/2 week pregnant hormonal lady cry, shocker I know ;). Thanks for sharing! Wish I could multiply you and have you near the Midwest!

    What a very beautiful woman! She reminds me of a pretty pink butterfly. 🙂 I love her pink metal frames, too! I seriously want a pair. What a pretty pretty blondie!! 😉 Terrific job, Cara! You have such beautiful models always.
