I’m graduating. It still sounds weird to me. I’ve been working towards this day for 12 years and it is finally here! I’ve got my cap and gown, and now all I need is to choose my graduation day “look.” Because the red gown I have to wear isn’t the cutest, that means I have to step up my hair and makeup game. Here are my tips on graduation day makeup, so when you are walking across that stage and taking a million pictures afterwards you will look fab.

  1. Look like yourself: Don’t try something new with your makeup the day of graduation. Keep things natural and stick with your normal “look”, so that when you look back at pictures you don’t think “Man, I wish I wouldn’t have worn that much eyeshadow.” You will thank yourself later.3036288_fpx
  2. Use long-lasting products: May in most parts of the country means hot and sticky weather, so choose products that are meant to last through the heat. Use longwear foundation and a good primer and finishing spray.
  3. Blush it up: It is really important not to forget blush, even if it isn’t an “everyday” look for you. It will give your face a little color and brighten you up.
  4. Hydrate your lips: Keep a lip gloss or balm with you to keep your lips from cracking or flaking. Dry lips in photos = no bueno!

The key to grad day makeup is to make it look natural and like “you”, with a little more staying power than you usually use on an everyday basis because of humidity.

Congrats, grads!

I have been aware of mineral makeup for a while, and I had heard it was so good for your skin, but I never really looked into it. But, recently a dermatologist told me that the reason I am having trouble getting rid of some of my pesky acne is because of the foundation I use! A lot of times drugstore foundations contain dyes and perfumes and can foster bacteria. Here is why you should make the switch to mineral makeup!4-in-1-pressed-mineral-makeup-porcelain-open

Mineral makeup is composed of inorganic minerals and is oil free so it doesn’t promote bacteria growth- Hooray! If you have acne prone skin then this is very important. It is also great for people with sensitive skin because it does not contain harsh perfumes or dyes like I mentioned above. Mineral makeup contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are both natural sunscreens that provide sun protection against those harsh rays. Another cool aspect is that titanium dioxide has a high light refraction index, which means it reflects light, even higher than that of a diamond! This helps reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and even gives you a glow!

Mineral makeup also offers you great coverage, a natural finish, and a smooth appearance! Although it is a little more expensive than your traditional foundation and powder I think that it is worth it. Think of all the money you could save on acne medicines!

I love the look, feel and finish that mineral makeup gives me. I give it a perfect 10!

We have already discussed the minimalist jewelry trend, so might as well hit minimalist makeup as well! Minimalist makeup is pretty much defined by the “natural” look. Like the minimalist jewelry trend, less is more. Here are three must-have products to pull off the minimalist makeup trend:NaturalBronzer_TEASER_0

  1. Mascara: a little mascara goes a long way! Mascara enhances your natural features, so it is the definition of all
    natural makeup.
  2. Lip color: even if it is just a little bit of color, it still adds a little something something to your look!
  3. Bronzer: bronzer adds definition to your face, and also helps to contour your cheeks. When you are wearing less makeup, you want to define your features.
  4. BB Cream: This stuff is a lot lighter than foundation, so it is more natural looking and feeling!

Want to try for a more natural look? Try the minimalist makeup trend!

Summer time is for natural themed and minimal makeup. The less makeup you wear the better, becauelle-04-bb-creams-maybelline-dream-fresh--xln-xlnse you are just going to sweat off what you are wearing anyway, and the less clogging your pores the better. Here are all of the products you will need to keep it natural this summer!

  1. BB Cream: BB creams are a lot more light weight than foundation so they won’t clog up your face or start to melt off when you sweat.
  2. Concealer- Just to quickly cover up those pesky pimples!
  3. Mascara- Lather up those lashes and use your natural beauty to your advantage!
  4. Eye pencil- Use light liner to give your eyes some dimension.
  5. Lip balm- All of the hot weather and sun will really dehydrate those lips if you aren’t too careful! Be sure to use a balm that has SPF to keep those lips protected!

Summer time is all about being free, fresh, and fun, so your makeup should be the same way too!

XOXO, Chels
