Ten Year High School Reunion FOTD

I've been under the weather lately and even more exhausted from doctor visits. I'm pulling through, but I wanted to tell you all about my 10 year high school reunion!

Who would've thunk I'd be facing my 10 year high school reunion so soon?! Yep, came and gone a few weekends ago! So many ideas and expectations when people talk about high school reunions... Career? Family? Kids? Accomplishments? Achievements? What did I have to say for myself in 10 years? Ah well, I put on my best face and a cute dress I hadn't worn yet, put all of that behind me and just went!

Here's what I came up with:
Y'all I use the same ol', same ol' on my face Revlon ColorStay Foundation, Sunny by Natures MSF
(MAC unless otherwise stated)
On my eyes- Painterly paint pot as a base, Swish eye shadow on lid, Plum Dressing eye shadow in my crease and Beauty Marked eye shadow on the outer v and lower lash. Penultimate liner on top lid, L'Oreal HIP's black liner in Amethyst Black on waterline, Red Cherry lashes (forgot the number).
On my cheeks-Sunny by Nature MSF, On a Mission blush
On my lips- Dazzleglass cream in Soft Dazzle and Maybelline ColorSensational l/s in Yummy Plummy slicked on top!

I didn't have a college sweetheart or a current lust to show off, so I bought the next best thing.. one of my sisters! So glad that I went! I sincerely had a great time. I hadn't smiled and laughed so hard in a while. I didn't even have as much time with people to try to go into what I've been doing for the last 10 years... just living and glad I have a job in this current economy! ha! I was definitely recruiting the last of civilization to get on Facebook if they weren't already so we could keep in touch!
Have you had your 10 year high school reunion? You don't have to tell your age if you don't want to ;) I'm learning to embrace it and go with it!

You look fabulous! And uh.....that's not your sister. That's your twin. My reunion is in 5 years and girl, I feel like I already had one with having already seen everyone on Facebook. It's the surprise is gone!

So we're around the same age? My 10 year high school reunion was in July. I did not go because in order to do so, I needed an international plane ticket. Your eyes are lovely!

I had my 10 year high school reunion a few years ago but didn't go because I was moving into a new house. How about this to make me feel old...my 10 year college graduation is in May...but I'm embracing 30!

Very pretty look! Glad you had a good time. My 10 year reunion came and went several years ago, but I didn't go...Most days I embrace getting older, but there are the days when I find the odd gray hair and I want to scream!!
