It’s the end of May and that means graduations! For those of you who have the big celebration coming up, here are some makeup tips to keep in mind:
- Make sure to moisturize before applying any makeup: It’s going to be a long day with lots of pictures being taken, so make sure to keep your face hydrated and looking smooth
- Make sure not to go overboard with the makeup: Yes, it’s a big day in your life and you want to stand out, but that doesn’t mean the attention needs to be on the access amount of eyeshadow you put on. Don’t go overboard. Subtle shades can make a big statement. For those graduating in the morning/afternoon, go with light eye shadows, blush, and a hint of gloss. Save the dramatic makeup for your celebrations that night!
- Make sure to carry your ‘essential product’ with you: I know it’s tough being in a cap and gown, but right after the ceremony means photo opps, and you don’t want your lips to look dull in all of them because you couldn’t find a place to fit your favorite gloss (my pick for 'essential product’). I understand that you don’t want to carry around a clutch or purse with you, but that’s the benefit of wearing those unflattering baggy gowns-you can wear a side bag under them! Simply strap the side bag over the dress you’re wearing under your gown, and you’re good to go. You’ll have some gloss on you to put on right before you walk the stage if you want (kinda extreme but you know…)!
The biggest tip of them all- SMILE! No product can make you look better than your smile, so make sure to rock it, and and enjoy every moment of the day because you def deserve it. Congratulations to all the graduates in the class of 2011!
