It’s no wonder that the oldest of my siblings got the good news first.

There are five of us and I’m the youngest. So the oldest one of us – my brother –  and her beautiful girlfriend surprised us with the news in the summer. It was – and still is – so exciting and I can’t believe I’m gonna be an aunt. Luckily I’m not alone with the task and the baby will have four overly-excited aunts waiting for her!

My brother and Tiina wanted some photos of the last sweet moments with the belly so I did my best with the photos. I did Tiina’s makeup too and I got to decide all the colors. Since it’s about pregnancy and a baby girl I chose soft, romantic colors such as light pink and purple. This was not the first time I’ve done Tiina’s makeup – here is a post where I did her makeup for the very first time. I actually remember that day very well –  Tiina had just got the news about the pregnancy and we were talking about it. Now here she is with her pregnancy glow and the baby bump.

Life, and the beginning of a new life is beautiful. And love. I couldn’t be happier for my brother.

Makeup By Me – Classic Smokey Eye

 I love a classic smokey eye.

A true smokey eye is really almost black and it goes on to the whole lid as well as on the lower lashline. This kind of makeup can look a bit harsh on blue eyes but for brown eyes it looks almost like it was always there. Right? If I had my model’s eyes I’d probably do this makeup every day!  I softened the black/brown shade with a warm orange that brings warmth to the look and also acts as a transition color. Since the eye shadow is mostly matte I paired it with a glossy nude lip.

Isn’t she gorgeous? How do you do a smokey eye?

I did this look at the end of the summer so I couldn’t remember all the products – sorry!
