Graduation Day Makeup.


Just a quick post to tell you about the makeup I chose to wear on my graduation day last week... unfortunately I've got no real close-up photos of my look, but hopefully you can get a jist from the above pictures along with the following description of what I was going for with my makeup.

It can be super tempting to trowl on cosmetics at a special event, but given graduation was an AM affair, I wanted my skin to look fresh and dewy especially in unforgiving natural light... the best compliment I received regarding my chosen look was from my best friend, who said my skin, rather than my base, looked ' fresh and polished.' I think this is partially because I've stopped using brushes to apply foundation and concealer - instead, I've been patting and blending it in using my fingers, and this is what I did on graduation day. The warmth allows product to really mesh into the skin, and it looks so much more natural than when makeup has been painted on, and I find there's less temptation to use a too much product when you use your hands.

And, of course, I went for my trademark cat eye (some things never change) but freshened things up with a bright gold summer appropriate eyeshadow, along with lots and lots of individual lashes...
