That's Not Her Style

This way-cooler than me lady is my birth-mother around my age. I think...

So I am dedicating today's Pinterest testing blog to her. Here are the pins...

This is the before face of a tired teacher who took too many selfies, trying not to include the laundry in the background. Did not work...

Okay, starting with makeup. I was supposed to put black eyeshadow in my crease/ outside corner of my eye. Kind of looks like two black eyes. At least I'm givng a stoic face.

Add some silver in the middle, and white in the inner corner. Throw some eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick, and we're done. (Is my  right eyebrow always higher than the other one?)

 Okay I decided that since I don't have bangs, I'll just go with a faux hawk. I first tried this pin, which was intended for a toddler.

Didn't look anything like a Mohawk

Then I split my hair into four sections and braided each braid. I tried making the braids looser and put into a bun...

Nope nope nope...

I ended up twisting the braids together and pinning the sides.

Here is the look. Definitely couldn't get the "Billy Joel" look like my mother did.

Makeup turned out okay. You know, as long as no one looks closely...
Hair-- Multiple fails.
