You made it! The big day! The start of a new chapter……..GRADUATION!!!
To all graduating seniors, we congratulate you on your accomplishments and wish you well in the next chapter of your life.
We are so proud of you!
Now, as you get ready to grab your diploma, let’s talk about how you’ll want to look on your special day.
Let’s face it, the photos taken on this day will be around for a LONG time.
So, we suggest a classic look that will not be dated in 20 years.
Believe me, you don’t want to look back and say, “Ugh…that was so 2017!”.
Tears may be shed, so keep the eyeliner to a minimum and use a waterproof mascara.
Use colors that complement your eye color and skin tone. Eyeshadows should be nude or
light pink colors to accent your eye’s as well as to keep a softer look.
If you choose to wear eyeliner, maybe shy away from the black. If you have blue eyes,
brown or navy (waterproof) eyeliner will not disappoint.
If you have green/hazel eyes, a pretty olive or deep green or purple will make the color pop in your eyes.
Brown eyes have the freedom to use any colors, but browns and a grey/black will add enough accent to your eyes to make them stand out.
Mascara should be waterproof, as mentioned previously, and compliment your eyeliner (if you choose to wear some).
Blue, green, and hazel eyes should try a deep brown mascara or black that won’t make your lashes chunky.
Maybelline’s Manga Mascara has the perfect wand, brush, and formula to make your lashes look long, thick, and natural.
Natural means light face makeup, blush, highlighter, etc.
If you struggle with blemishes or rough skin texture, neutrogena’s line of long wear face makeup will give you the best coverage.
Be sure to go easy on the concealer, this is not the day for a cake-face. Be sure to always set the cremes and liquids on your face with a powder!
This will set your make up and help it last all day. If you choose to broze, try a natural looking powder bronzer like Tarte’s Hoola Bronzer.
For a highlight, you don’t want to look like a glazed donut. Try using Becca’s powder highlighter in champagne pop above your bronzer/on your cheekbone.
If you don’t want to break the bank, try L’Oreal’s liquid highlighter in the pearl shade for a nice accent to your cheekbone.
A personal favorite for a natural blush is Benefit cosmetics blush in coralista. Another great blush that is similar, and cheaper, is Milani’s baked blush in luminoso!
When applying blush, smile and apply on the apples of your cheeks while being sure to blend it out.
Some of us were blessed with naturally thick/perfect brows. Some of us were not.
Using a light powder or pencil (NYX has great brow products) to add shape and a little dimension to your brows will perfect your face makeup.
Add a little highlighter under the brow bone for an extra pop!
Most if not all of these wonderful products can be purchased at Sephora or Ulta Beauty (online or in store).
As always, we cannot wait to see all of the looks everyone comes up with! Please share with us using #jspgraduation17
