Going Out In Style: Perfect Graduation Looks


Graduation marks a huge milestone in our lives. We’re growing up, moving on and discovering ourselves, and our makeup choices should resemble how amazing we feel.

From graduation ceremony to post-grad festivities to a celebratory night out with the girls, the perfect makeup has the ability to reflect how amazing we feel. These stunning makeup trends have a perfect mix of personality and class. Graduation ceremony is often long, hot and boring, but the right makeup can liven up the day. With hundreds of photos being taken form start to finish, it’s important to focus on your natural beaut. A timeless look makes for not only great photographs but for people to focus on you and not just your makeup.


Naya Rivera shows us the perfect look for graduation ceremony. With a simple eye and simple lip, these girls are able to turn heads with their natural beauty. But going simple doesn’t mean ditching the color.

To achieve this look, make sure to have a great base and good mascara. From there, choose a light pink or tan eye shadow that complements your skin. To make your natural beauty really stand out, make sure to add a hint of blush to liven up the cheeks and a slightly pink nude lipstick. Try NAR’s nude pink lipstick for the perfect shade to add just enough color to your ceremony look.


Post-graduation ceremony is always filled with family and close friends. The people that know you the best already know how truly amazing you are, so don’t be afraid to add some color. Focusing on your natural beauty with a twist, an addition of color will lead to showcasing your true personality.

Rihanna has a knack for staying true to herself while looking chic at the same time. Her bold use of color is perfect for a post-graduation party. As usual, make sure to have a great base, but this time try Urban Decay’s baked bronzer for a subtle shine. Feel free to go for a slightly winged liner and heavy mascara to make the look your own. Then finish off with some show-stopping lip color such as Smashbox’s electric coral for the perfect finish to a standout look.


A celebratory night out with the girls can be anything from grabbing a few drinks to a full-blown party. This is your night to celebrate and your makeup should reflect that, so don’t be afraid to go bold and add some darker colors.

Megan Fox has some of the perfect night-on-the-town makeup looks to replicate for a memorable night. To achieve this look, focus on the deep plum and smoke grey color palette. The easiest way to stick to a great color palette is to invest in an eye set with the colors already matched. Bobbi Brown’s soho chic eye palette makes for the perfect recipe for stunning makeup on your night out. Pair that with the line’s dark red wine lipstick and you’ll have the perfect makeup for a memorable night.

No matter what the graduation occasion it’s important to reflect your true personality and let your natural beauty shine. The right makeup has the ability to make you look and feel your best while your doing your much-deserved celebrating.
