The situation is...
Yesterday some my graduate class at my HS found out that our portrait photos will be taken next week. (We're currently juniors)
It came as a surprise because would make more sense to have them taken maybe in the summer or fall when we come back to school since a lot of things could happen over a couple of months, 2.they only gave us 1 week's notice.
My mom has already confirmed that I do not need to get a haircut, but I have another situation...
I have lots acne scars and blemishes all over my cheeks and chin :(
Does anyone have any recommendations for concealer/powder/foundation that will cover it but still look natural and is flash photography friendly (aka no mask face)?

------some funny stories related to this (at least I think they're quite amusing)------
1. On the postcard that suggests what we should wear/do in preparation for the picture day it includes "Apply concealer or powder to minimize blemishers & shine"
-It probably won't sound that unusual, but my school is pretty big (my graduating class has ~1000+ people) and I doubt half of them wear makeup (mostly guys & some girls).

2. People started to get these index cards that tells us what day we're taking the photos yesterday, and a guy in my class shaved his head >__< But then again, he doesn't seem like a person that would care if he had hair or was bald in his yearbook photo. Lol

Going to try it out when I have really bad bed hair.
Wasn't even looking for this, but when I saw it I really wanted to try it :X
I have no self-control! Ahh...


Almost There + Small Haul

1:38:00 PM mandy 1 Comments

Ahh only...7 more school days (well 6 full school days and 1 half day) and...a few Regents Exams and it'll be the end of the school year for me ^___^ I'm so excited for summer, but very excited about my hectic college search *sigh* Until Spring 2011, I'm going to be sooo stressed.

I was going to post about this yesterday but got carried away relaxing because in the morning I took 3 SAT II exams (Physics, U.S. History, and Math Level 1). Even though I don't think I did that great on them, I think I'm not going to cancel my scores because I did put effort into it and some colleges do like to see it. At least I tried right? Let's hope for the best ^___^

After being confined in a classroom for ~3 hrs, I didn't feel like going home just yet. I went to the Rite Aid that was close to the school that I took the test at. I wanted to see if they had the NYC Blushable Creme Sticks that everyone has been talking about and they did (probably because they're a newer Rite Aid, the other one that is in my neighborhood is pretty old :X) This Rite Aid had them but I only saw 2 limited edition shades and some other non-limited edition shades. Some shades that I saw there...Plaza Pink, Big Apple Blush, Urban Spice, South Street Seashell, Mauvin' Uptown, Berry New Yorker, and Wild Berry. I only limited myself to 3 because I want to save up for something else :P

L to R: Berry New Yorker, Big Apple Blush, Plaza Pink

Has this ever happened to anyone?

You've been following tons of blogs and then suddenly you refresh the Dashboard page and it says you're not following anything. I hope this is just a glitch >__< So many blogs that I don't know where to start looking again :(

--edit (literally less than 1 minute after I post my frustration)--

The blogs I'm following are back!! ^___^
Blogger should fix that problem...
