So I'm about to get some grad photos taken and I was thinking of looks to go with. Here's the thing about grad photos - I know that people will know what year they're from, but I think I'm going to try and keep it from looking too dated. You remember looking through your yearbooks - in my day, butterfly clips, pin-straight hair, permatans and wayyyy too much liner stole the show. I really don't want people to know that glitter, liquid liner and side braids are all the rage right now, so I think I'll skip on both.
So here are some looks that I'm pondering - since it is a photo, I've gone with a heavier base, filled in my brows and given myself some bronzer to contour. And of course I had to bring back an old friend to help fake eight hours of sleep.
This is a pretty basic, neutral look with a little colour on the cheek so I don't look washed out/dead. Paired with no colour on the lid, just mascara and a blue-pink lipgloss.
I've given myself a more vibrant "my lip colour but better" lip and taken some colour from the cheeks. There's a certain old film star appeal to this, but I might need more colour on the cheek.
I gave myself a darker, more defined eye with a little colour on the cheek and just a shiny gloss on the lip. This one looks most like my every day self, but I'm afraid the dark eye might come off too trendy?
How does everyone vote?
