"Sisters, right?" I'm not sure what it is, but I feel like I can always tell when two people are sisters. Maybe it's my sister-spidey-sense from being sandwiched between two of them myself, but there's something intangible but obvious about the way sisters act around each other.
You share EVERYTHING with them: secrets, rooms, clothes, cars, and if you're like my family, probably even noses. Not only do your sisters know every embarrassing moment, bad haircut, pet peeve, passion, and personality trait, but they know the origin of every single one of them because they were probably there with you during all of those moments.
As a sister, you go through times where you just want to be your own person instead of being referred to as a singular entity ("The Girls"), but even though some of the sharing gets old (an emotion that generally peaks when you have to share the same car in high school), you realize in time that you'd never, ever have it any other way—because your sister has become half of who you are. I don't even know who or where I would be without mine.
Check out Rachel, my little sister below. She's officially trading in her last name in T minus 3 weeks! We did a trial run of bridal makeup today, and she looked absolutely stunning—which I can't take all the credit for because she started out a stunner before we began.
I AM going to go ahead and take some credit for those insanely gorgeous cheekbones and BRIGHT blue eyes, though, because I evidently passed on them in the womb, so now she gets to rock them every day of her life. You're welcome, Rae. ;)
I used some higher-end products since it's bridal makeup, but you can achieve this look for less with some cheaper substitutes (which I'll get into in a later post). For instance, the lip color I used is more for staying power (the Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau stays on like a damn tattoo!), and that's rather important for weddings since there's generally quite of a bit of making out between the bride and groom.
Anyway, here's to sisters! Your hair-pulling, curling-iron-stealing, makes-you-angrier-than-anyone-else-and-happier-than-anyone-else, crying-at-your-wedding, and laughing-when-you-trip-in-heels built-in bestie.
You mean more than you'll ever know to someone who shares your genes and steals your jeans.
