What at week! Please excuse my tardy blog post! I decided Mother’s day should have lasted 4 extra days so I took some much needed time off!  My family got together to surprise my amazingly beautiful and radiant Grandmother for an awesome mother’s day cruise on the Spirit of Norfolk.  My Godmother ordered this cake with her picture on it and all the names of her children and grandchildren. YES… it’s a huge family.  She has a total of 10 kids.

I try to do my Grandma’s make-up every chance I get.  She helped raise me and prays for me every morning at 0600 hrs.  She lights a candle and prays to the rosary.  Her beauty is evident in all her actions and my way to repay her for all she has done is help make her feel as beautiful outside as she is in the inside!  I am so blessed to have her in my life!

For her look I chose @inkcosmetics foundation stick in Suntan.  I placed primer on her lids and used our Bronze face palette available at www.shopinkcosmetics.com.  Because of her mature skin, I decided to hide her hooded lids behind a thick cat eye liner and I finished the look with INK… Surge Lipstick.

Olivia was also wearing our Bronze Face Palette.  🙂 When we choose our colors for INK… Cosmetics, I try to ensure they fit the complexion as oppose to the age of who is wearing it.  Our products are vibrant, bold, sexy and sophisticated!  We have choices for all ages!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!

Well, now you know I couldn’t of left the other women unattended!  I ended up doing make-up for all my aunts.  The price to pay for being a professional.  😉

On the left is my Uncle Joe!  He is very inspiring, honorable and loving!  He normally doesn’t look this grumpy though!  LOL  I think this was his mafia face?  Mom in the middle and on the right is my Godfather Rufino.

Okay so now that most of the intros are done…we all piled into cars and headed out to the Spirit of Norfolk.  Basically, it’s a cruise you can go on for a good meal, music, dancing and fun.

The food was buffet style and completely fantastic!

Anyone who can put up with all the demanding “A” type personalities in our family deserves a raise!  Or at minimum, a really good tip!  The staff on the cruise were unbelievable!  They sing like hidden treasures from the sea.  They should of all been on this years American Idol!

Jo-Jo
