Mariah Moneda – IDGAF
This shoot I did with Mariah was so fun! She did my makeup and I seriously love it. To be honest, I’m always nervous when makeup artists do my makeup, especially if I don’t see any Asian eyes in their portfolio. I was really hyped when I saw myself in the mirror. I felt like my makeup actually suited me and that the eye makeup wasn’t too much. When I first looked in the mirror, I was like, “Damn. I dig it.” Mariah also did my hair and she had to use dental floss to tie my hair together since we didn’t have a hair tie. Haha, which is really smart if you ask me!
We explored Arizona State University and Mariah showed me some sick places on campus that I never knew existed! The pictures we took there really gives the “IDGAF” lifestyle vibe, which I totally love. We also went to Zia Record Exchange, the most rad place ever, and did a little shoot there. They had this section of comic-related stuff and I legit wanted to buy everything Flash related. (Anyone obsesses with Flash like I am? Where are all my Barry Allen fans at?!)
Mariah also took me to Dutch Bros (SO GOOD) and In N Out. If you haven’t tried Dutch Bros yet, you’re seriously missing out! Their coffees are so good. I got the Trifecta and it was super chocolatey. Highly recommend this if you love chocolate or have a super sweet tooth.
I am seriously now addicted to Dutch Bros.
P.S. If you’re reading this, Mariah, thanks again for taking me to Dutch Bros!
