Tall Girl (2019)

tallgirl_bornunicorn (1)When Jodi (Ava Michelle) decides to get a make-over to impress the exchange student Stig, she asks her beauty pageant-winning sister Harper (Sabrina Carpenter) to help her. Much to her dismay, her mother Helaine (Angela Kinsey) is part of the glam squad. The first place they go to is a MAC counter, where Helaine comes up with very specific requests.

On the other side of the spectrum there’s Crème Cup, a light blue pink shade, but Helaine thinks it’s not vampy enough.

Obvious difference for any beauty lover, incomprehensible for someone who doesn’t care about make-up.
