Prom/Graduation Tutorial – Cranberry Shimmer

Prom/Graduation season is fast approaching – and for some, has already passed! Following my massive skincare post, I’ve been eager to do some special event makeup tutorials!

This is one of my current favourite looks for any sort of special occasion (but honestly, I often wear this to work even if there is no special occasion!)

For this look, the focus is on the eyes, paired with a nude-pink lip. It’s dramatic (yet not too crazy) warm, and shimmery. It really accentuates the eyes, helping to define and elongate the eye shape.
