Hi! so i really love ur blog and love that you do realize that not everyone is good with makeup just yet. i’m one of those people. i am graduating from college in december and i’m excited! i know it’s early but i am thinking about makeup looks that i want to do for the ceremony and reception afterwards. i’ve been playing around with MAC pigments and would like to use some. what kind of look do you suggest? thanks!
Soon 2 B graduate in North Carolina.
Ahhh, this brings back memories. I graduated from college around this time 2 years ago. See!
That was a chubbier B but you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t cute! I remember trying to decide what look I was going to wear. I settled on MAC’s Woodwinked on the lid and MAC’s Sketch in my crease. Can’t believe I remember that.
Oh the memories…
But back to you, Dear reader. I only own 3 full size pigments. Melon, Coco Beach and Vanilla.
And I’ve had these for the longest! I never take the time to use pigments but I do think that these three used together can make for a pretty nice and subtle graduation look. Melon gives you some added shimmer but it isn’t too overwhelming but it will make you shine like the student star that you are!
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45
-Too Faced Shadow Insurance
–L’Oreal HIP cream shadow paint in Witty
-MAC Melon pigment (lid)
-MAC Coco Beach pigment (crease)
-MAC Vanilla pigment (highlight)\
-Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
-MAC Blacktrack fluidline
-MAC Nightmoth lip liner
-MAC Hot ‘N Saucy tendertone
That lip combo has popped up in a great deal of my FOTDS because ohhh weee, I love it. Balms are great because they keep your lips moisturized without having to re-apply. Graduations can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours and with all of the excitement going on, you really don’t have the time to keep re-applying glosses.
So here’s how it came out:
Not too shabby! So if pigments for your graduation look is where you really want to go, I suggest those three. Congrats again, lady!!
Anyone recommend any slammin’ graduation looks?
Do you remember what you wore for your high school or college graduation?
And happy weekend to all!
