Graduation Makeup!

A little while ago, I had the lovely opportunity to do one of my best friend’s makeup for her high school graduation. She has beautiful blue eyes, so I was extremely excited to play around with colours to accentuate them, since It would be a bit more of a challenge than my own hazel eyes.

We decided to go with a gold with a little bit of smokey eye to really make the blue in her eyes and gown pop, and paired that with a neutral-pink lip and soft pink cheek.

We had an absolute blast, and Caitlyn did a beautiful job on her hair.

She looked like a princess, and we wanted her to feel truly beautiful, inside and out.

To create this look, here are the products I used:


  • Smashbox Photofinish Face Primer
  • Lise Watier Concealer Wheel
  • Revlon Photo Ready Foundation
  • IT Cosmetics Under Eye Concealer
  • Arbonne Radiance Mineral Face Powder
  • Too Faced Bronzer in Chocolate Soleil
  • Mac blush in “Dame”


  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Maybelline Colour Tattoo in “Bold Gold”
  • L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in “Goldmine”
  • Nyx Gold Ultra Pearl Mania loose pigment
  • Lise Watier Eyeshadow Pallete-a dark brown colour (unfortunately the names have worn off the packaging!)-for the crease
  • Urban Decay “Blackout”-for the crease
  • Marcelle Dip-Pen long wearing liquid liner in black
  • Lancome Hypnose Mascara


  • Lush Exfoliating Lip Scrub
  • Burt’s Bees lip balm
  • Mac Prep & Prime lip primer
  • Mac’s Angel lipstick
  • Nyx Liplgoss in “Beige” (I have no idea why it’s called beige; it’s a bright pink)


I applied Bold Gold first all over the lid, and then added Goldmine and the Nyx pigment to really make the gold pop. I applied the dark brown into her crease and blended it inwards. Then in the outer corners of the crease, I blended Blackout.

This was our first time using the Revlon Photo Ready Foundation, and I must say we were both very impressed. Her makeup lasted all day long and looked absolutely flawless in photos.

I couldn’t have been happier with how her makeup turned out, and I am so pleased to have gotten the opportunity to experiment with new techniques, especially those dazzling blue eyes!


Congratulations again, Dina!
