How to Create the Perfect Graduation Makeup Look

Graduation is one of the greatest milestones of life, so make it count. On this special occasion, look your absolute best and show off all your hard work in studies. While your hair and attire will likely remain hidden beneath a cap and gown, makeup options allow for endless customization - from subtle natural looks to full glam styles; we have everything you need to complete your graduation look flawlessly.

As a rule of thumb, neutral makeup looks are best suited for graduation photos; however, that doesn't preclude you from going bolder with eyes or lips if desired; just take care in applying it so as not to create too much caked-on look.

For an elegant eye look, use light eyeshadow with shimmer and blend it into the crease. Next, tight line your upper lash line using pencil eyeliner and add mascara as desired for a finished effect. Finally, accent cheeks with cool pink or peach blusher and complete this ensemble by applying nude lip color.

If you want something a bit more glamorous, a black smokey eye is always an elegant choice. Not only does this classic beauty look remain beautiful today but you can easily upgrade its intensity by adding false lashes or glittery highlighter.

Classic looks for red lips include pairing it with neutral skin tones and minimal eyeshadow. This look can easily be pulled off and suits almost any dress; for an alternative option try wearing burgundy or pink lipsticks instead of red.

To add an eye-catching flair, consider using a highlighter with subtle glow and soft contour, combined with bronzer to bring back some color into your complexion. Furthermore, using sheer blush or tinted moisturizer with shimmer can flush the cheeks for added flushing; adding lip gloss featuring shimmer can complete your look!

Graduation doesn't require overdoing your makeup, but using some products that will enhance your natural features is certainly worthwhile. Primers and setting powder can ensure your look lasts all night, while foundation or BB cream matched specifically to your skin tone should help complete the look.

Subtle bronzer and blush can add a warm, radiant glow, while highlighters with glitter can really bring out your natural beauty. A shimmery lipstick can add some flair to graduation makeup; especially great for afterparty celebrations!

An attractive graduation makeup look starts with the perfect, hydrating lipstick. L'Oreal Paris Glow Paradise Lip and Cheek Tint in Berry makes application effortless while looking fabulous against any graduation attire.
