Style Bio: Carly


Style Bio: Carly

I'm starting a new series on the blog called Style Bio, where I talk to my friends and family about their beauty and style routines, favorites, and tips. I love talking to my friends about beauty and style recommendations and getting the chance to interview and chat beauty with my sister was so much fun. My sister Carly is a 21-year-old student at the University of Oregon. She studying Evolutionary Medicine (did I get this right Cars?) and is head of dissections at the school's Primate Osteology Lab and works as a vet assistant. She's 100 times more badass than I ever imagined and than I could ever be and I admire her so much. 

How did you first get into makeup?

I definitely got one of those kits from Claire's or something. It was in this round floral box with four eyeshadows and two blushes - the shittiest quality, all powder, no pigment. There was a brown eyeliner with it that I would make into mascara because Mom wouldn't let me use mascara. I was probably 13. 

What's your beauty routine?

I wake up, sometimes with old makeup on. I'm bad about that. I usually have 30-45 minutes to get ready. I never wash my face, I apply moisturizer, sometimes I don't. I think my skin is very forgiving. 
For makeup I do concealer, eyebrows, and two eyeshadows - a white on the inner corners and a matte brown on the lids. I use a dark gray shadow for liner and then mascara. I'll add bronzer, highlighter and sometimes blush if I'm feeling it. I won't leave the house without eyebrows and mascara.
If I have enough time in the evening I wash my face with Cetaphil and a hot cloth. I always use argan oil on my face at night - that's my secret.

What's your most loved beauty product?

How would you describe your style?

I wear a lot of basics - casual on the daily. I'm so busy with school that I'm always wearing jeans, a white t-shirt, flannel and a vest. 

Who are your style icons?

That's hard, I don't follow a lot of fashion. I like Kendall Jenner's street style and I like Alexa Chung. I don't have a lot of time to think about my own style because I wear scrubs half the week.

What's your favorite piece of clothing you own?

Honestly? These jeans I'm wearing. They're American Eagle from their Made in the USA collection. They're high waisted. I've had them for three years.

Is there are style you'd like to try?

I need to start investing in nice shirts and tops. I don't have very many and I like high necked things and tank tops that show off my tattoo. 

Thanks so much to my sister for taking time out of her busy schedule to talk! We also did a load of photos in the osteology lab that I'm currently still developing (5 rolls of film!). I'll be sharing some of those soon - keep your eyes peeled!
