Soft Smoke – Affordable Golden Graduation Glam

“We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes – understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success” – Arianna Huffington

 

Graduation season. A time in my life I’ve looked forward to from the moment I first witnessed graduates line up outside my university’s hall. It’s something about the way the girls grace the scene with their beautiful dresses and high heels and how dapper the men look in their suits. It’s a really big day, and rightfully so, because we as students have worked really hard to get here and it’s not everyone that can say that they’ve made it to the finish line. On your big day, the last thing you should worry about is what kind of make-up look to go for – that’s where I come in. I’ve been working on a series for graduation looks to give you a bit of inspiration for different tastes. In this look specifically I wanted something soft yet dramatic at the same time. I love how subtle yet effective this look is for graduation with golden tones to suit a variety of skin tones. I’ve listed all the products featured in the video’s description bar for easier access.

For these tutorials, I’ve tried to make it as drugstore friendly as possible so that people who may still be on the job hunt do not have to pay an arm and a leg just to look good on graduation day! The only products that I can honestly say are not drugstore would be the SwiitchBeauty products, but I did recommend alternatives in my videos.

The final look:

What kind of look would you like to see for graduation? I’m working on something a little bit more dramatic for my next look and I promise it won’t be as long, I just thought I’d do one “get ready with me” and the others will probably be voiced over in order to make it easier for viewing.
