I used my Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer palette because I was having trouble coming up with a look. One of my makeup strategies is: "When all else fails, CRACK OUT YOUR 88 PALETTE!!! THERE ARE 88 FREAKIN' SHADOWS IN IT, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING!!!!" I also decided to tone it down a bit and wear a sparkly gloss rather than a red lip colour which I was originally going to do.

I tried to add a couple of goth-esque touches to my outfit (studded shoes, corset waist belt, black rose in hair) while still keeping things classy. I got a lovely bouquet of black roses from my husband-ish person for my convocation! I'm not a big flower type of girl but I certainly don't mind the odd black rose here and there!
