Graduation for many of us is an emotional time an end of an era ,a time where the tantrums, tears and overeating all seem worth while- it’s time to pop champagne, you’ve finally made it! You’re going to be treated like an a-list celebrity for the day (by family) camera’s flashing in your face non stop, free re-fills of Prosecco for 24 hours so enjoy every minute of it.
Before the day arrives have you found a dress? If the answers yes then keep on reading as the stress of finding an outfit may be over but have you thought about your face? (in the politest way possible) The thought of your dress and makeup clashing is simply terrifying! If you’re not obsessed with makeup looks like myself, then here’s some serious inspiration that will compliment any eye colour, skin tone and face shape that requires little technique, and it’s all about the au naturel lips and cheeks this season!
Remember the image of you on your graduation day will be proudly hanging on the wall for all house visitors to see, so you want to look good.
