Makeup to Stand Out at Graduation ( The Best Way Possible )


Do you remember the ever so exciting picture day beauty prep?

You would…

  1. Spend hours watching YouTube beauty tutorials
  2. Spend hours getting ready in the morning
  3. Frequently touch-ups throughout the day

But it didn’t bother you.

After all, this photo will be on your student card the entire year and in the yearbook for life.

The last thing you want is to dig up your yearbook 10 years from now only to see your makeup is a mess.

Have you ever wondered why people don’t put the same emphasis if not more on graduation day makeup? 

I bet it is more likely your graduation photo will be showcased on your fridge as opposed to your grade 9 yearbook photo.

Here are 4 tips you can use to stand out at graduation in the best way possible.

Get Your Makeup Done Professionally

This may seem self-explanatory but you would be surprised how few people actually think graduation is worth getting their makeup/hair done for.

By having a professional help you get ready, the stress of creating the perfect look disappears.

These people do their job for a reason.

They know exactly how to achieve looks for every occasion.

Graduation included.

Be Prepared For Crazy Weather

Thanks to our good friends at Apple we have access to the weather app. Take advantage of it people!


Depending on where you live and the time of your graduation the weather can be unpredictable.

Why does this matter?

Well, makeup and hair usually don’t get along so well with rain or intense heat waves.

Even those stay all day or waterproof products don’t stand a chance in intense weather.

Be smart and check the weather!!

Get Your Self Tanner On

I don’t know what it is about self-tanner that just makes everything better.

  • Have a cold? – apply self-tanner
  • Get into a fight with your friend – apply self-tanner
  • Graduate school – apply self-tanner

Self-tanning products make you look so much more alive, and when you look alive, you feel alive.

When I use tanning products of any kind I feel way more confident and generally apply less face makeup.



I recommend the Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronzing Tint

Don’t Forget The Primer

When you have a long important day to conquer primer is a necessity.

Both face and eyes.

When so much work is put into your makeup, it is silly not to prime in order to keep it on!

You want to look amazing the second you walk out the door and the second you walk back in it.
