I took my cap and gown pictures today. I'm finally graduating college!!! Woot woot! Although some wouldn't think I'm actually in college, let alone graduating college, since most would think I'm still in high school :[. Even though portraits aren't mandatory compared to your high school ones, I still wanted at least a professional picture of me in my cap and gown since it marks another milestone and accomplishment in my life. Besides how many times do you graduate college in your life time (not counting grad school ok?).
So, my mom actually trimmed my hair today since the ends are looking pretty bad, and my bangs since it's getting pretty long. I wore my falsies for this shoot too! My mom finds it amusing that I'm using false lashes, but she said it'll probably look better in the picture. My mom and dad actually went with me to Simi Valley to get my pictures taken. My mom was teasing that I probably look the same in all 15 shots since I only have ONE practiced smile :D. And this is also why I only have one full face shot since all the pictures I took looked the same, just different angle hahaha.
Seriously, if I didn't get into makeup... my makeup application would probably suck. I looked at my old high school grad portrait, and I barely have anything on. Well, I didn't want to go overboard with this one too since I don't want to look overdone in my picture. I wanted to keep my face simple and natural, but with a bit of ooomph, color on my face, and more definition on my eye. Anyway, enough babbling and on to the FOTD.
What I used (All MAC unless stated otherwise):
Woodwinked e/s (gotta use my favorite e/s) (inner lid)
Lancome Mochachinno e/s (middle and outter lid)

I love my True Romantic BPB! Do see what I'm telling you? Enough pink on my cheeks.
Anyway, my proof will be mailed in 2-3 weeks. So I'll try to see if I can share ya'll the proofs and maybe you can help me choose which one I should pick!
Oh I did some major hauling today too. I'll save it for another post since I should get my Real Estate Law paper started since it's due on Monday heehee (seniorities).
