AMW Makeover: Graduation Day

(Note from author: I would like to thank Rhea for permitting me to post her photos)

Happy day everyone!

The weekend has been busy for me! One busy thing that I love to do is doing a makeover for Rhea, graduating for her MBA degree! She also requested a long lasting makeup as her graduation starts at 9am and she will be busy with her daughter's birthday party in the afternoon.

Long lasting makeup! :) That's a challenge I am willing to take!

Here's Rhea and
her wonderful daughter
Andie the cutie :D

Since Rhea is such a cool mom!

She said she's open for any eyeshadow colors!

I did quite a colorful
yet not so overwhelming eye look

This makeup will complement
her white graduation outfit!

She also trusted me to do her hair!
I am in no way an expert on hair

But I do know a thing or 2 on curling! :)
