Graduation Makeup

My graduation was in july and I know a lot of people graduate throughout out the few months so I thought I'd break down my graduation makeup to give you some ideas for your day.
I went for a neutral look as I didn't want to look back at my pictures and think what on earth was I thinking something timeless and natural.

I choose the urban decay naked 2 palette as it one of my fave from the bunch, I put the colour verve all over my lid as its bright and shimmery and on my brow bone. Then went in with tease ( matte brown) in to the crease to give me more definition. Finally I used half baked on my lower lash line to brighten my eyes a bit more as you can tell I only used 3 colours pretty simple nothing to complicated so anyone can recreate this look. For eyeliner I used the super cat eyeliner by soap & glory and for my water line I used Rimmel's scandal eyes eyeliner which is slowly becoming my favourite. For mascara I used my usual Mayebeline Rocket volume' express.

For my face I started of with primer I used the Maybeline baby face I only put this on my cheeks and chin as thats were I get visible pores I didn't use anything else as they all have spf and didn't want no extreme flashback. I wanted a pretty matte look as it was really hot sunny that week so didn't want to look too shiny sweaty especially with flash photography. So I went for the Tarte amazonian clay full coverage foundation, which is amazingly long lasting and covers most blemishes. For concealer I used my favourite Nars creamy concealer in vanilla this is seriously amazing for dark circles especially because I was so sleep deprived as I was fasting that day and only had like 2 hours sleep. To finish everything off I used the Bourjois healthy balance powder to set everything in place. For lips I went for my favourite nude lipstick blankety my mac.

I did use false lashes but they come off I blame benefit eyelash glue !! I normally get the lash duo but it was out of stock so had to settle for benefit which I won't be purchasing again other then that, everything went well and my makeup stayed on all day no touch ups needed though I did take my Chanel powder incase and finally congratulations to everyone graduating or if you have already graduated hope you guys have/had a great day. Remember to smile and have a great time you worked hard for this.
