Before & Afters Makeup

Mother’s Day Makeover Marianne

My next incredible mother is Marianne Franks and her two beautiful and sweet daughters.
I only have sons so far and I’ve always thought it wold be just fine if I get all boys, cause boys are so great …but then I see relationships like these girls have with their lovely mom and I think, MAN I do want a girl!

If you take the time to watch this video (which I HIGHLY recommend) I’m guessing you’ll see what I mean. She’s a pro at the daughter thing by now seeing how she has 6 of them!

She had the kind of genuine soul that makes you feel instantly comfortable, like you could tell her anything or come over to her house and just hang out with her and a smile so big you can’t help but smile back.

I loved these beautiful ladies so much! It was funny because after doing a whole day of makeovers I’m usually pretty worn out but after a full day celebrating these mothers with their adoring fans I just found myself exhilarated and inspired.

    What a beautiful heart this woman has! Her goodness is reflected in her sweet wonderful daughters! Marrianne wears her challenges with grace and dignity. I loved seeing the support of her Mom in the background. You can plainly see that their lives are filled with great joy. “All there is is love, love is all there is.”

    Both Mother’s Day Makeovers are amazing; for the beautiful women shared in the videos and the touching stories of both families. Tears! This is my very first Mother’s Day and (even though I have a son) I hope to inspire and shape his life as powerfully as these women have effected their daughters’ lives. Thanks for all the feelings Cara! 🙂 Lovely makeovers as well.

    So so so beautiful!, inside and out!! Question for you, Cara — I have a round nose, like beautiful Marianne, but I also have very rounded nostrils. I do the nose HAC with your awesome shadow tone, and it makes my nose look nice and skinny, but unfortunately that seems to over-accentuate the size of my nostrils and make them look even bigger! I’ve tried contouring them to but can’t quite seem to make it work. Any nose HAC-ing tips for wide-nosed gals like me?

    WHOA!!!! She is absolutely stunning. What a beautiful woman. When I was scrolling down and saw the ‘before’ photo, I wasn’t sure if it was the ‘before’ or the ‘after’ shot. As always you keep the look natural and just magnify the beauty that is already there. God bless her and her family. Great job Cara and thank you for sharing your gift in this way!

    The difference in the nose shape is amazing! I have the dark palette purchased from Evine, and I cannot seem to contour my nose properly. I think I have to buy the Shadow contour color separately and try that!
