Bestie's Graduation Makeup

Why does it still feel like October to me?! Then I think about it and we're already almost halfway through December! Time flies and we're only 9 days away till Christmas and I'm not ready! Well TGIF! This week felt like it was going by really slow for some reason but I'm just glad the weekend is here. I need to finish up some Christmas shopping and I gotta find a new dress to wear for Christmas Eve. I only wish time can slow down just a little bit!

I was really excited when my amazingly gorgeous best friend asked me to do her makeup for her graduation! I've never done her makeup before and I always knew she was good with makeup already :) But of course I couldn't say no and I thought this would be a good chance for me to practice more on different faces especially since she has more of a monolid which is the opposite of what I have.

After I got the feel of where her crease was, it was pretty easy to emphasize it. She wanted a subtle brown smokey look but nothing too dramatic. In my opinion I feel like this is how she normally looks while others thought she looked different. Either way, she was the hottest college graduate that day :D
