April 26, 2011 - my most anticipated day of the year. Hahaha. Exagge much? But seriously, I've been waiting for that day for like forever. I know I mentioned my graduation in some of my previous posts *here* and *here* already. So let's get on with this :)
In case you didn't know, I went to college in Los Banos, Laguna, and that's like two to three hours from Quezon City. I couldn't bring all of my makeup with me, of course, so I chose these items. Y'all know that I'm a fan of the minimalist makeup look so it wasn't hard for me to decide on what "look" I'd wear on my graduation. I just hoped that my makeup wouldn't go crazy on me under the scorching heat.

I did my nails the day before I went to LB so I didn't have to bring nail stuff with me. I was so in love with my sparkly blue gradient nails that I decided to wear gradient nails again ;P And then I ended up with this.

Toga. LOL, just kidding. I mean, I did wear a toga but of course I was wearing something under it! I wore a really simple brown dress and black pumps with dotted detailing (Mario D' boro).

For the face, I used:
Careline Oil Control Liquid Makeup in Oriental
Careline Pimple Concealer in Oriental - for the undereye area
Ever Bilena Powder Foundation in Oriental
For the eyes, I used:
Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer - important!
Wet N Wild Mega Eyes Trio in Egyptian Sands (my fave if you've noticed) - browbone and eyelid colors
For the cheeks, I used:
Aziza Blush Duo in Tropical - the darker shade
For the lips, I used:
Chap-Ice Lip Balm
Careline Lipgloss in 09
When my mom arrived she told me to put on more blush. At first I didn't want to because I wanted to look as natural as possible, but I gave in. Glad I did! The blush surprisingly lasted until the end of the ceremony. Cooool.

|After 7 hours|
|Oily already but there's still a hint of blush|
I just powder-and-lippy-retouched from time to time.
I did nothing special to my hair. Just a half ponytail then braided the tail. I let my long side bangs loose, too.
That's it for my graduation OTD's, I think. For more pictures, check out my Facebook album *here.*
