Ah, this is a great time: the exams are over, and ahead is the graduation ball. Girls this event, or rather the preparation for it, worries no less than training tests. We are ready to help calm down and get ready, especially since the excitement is in any case pleasant. This time, you only need to choose one of the beauty looks below and repeat the makeup step by step, as in our instructions

Idea 1: focus on the quality of facial skin

Do you want to get a fresh look, as if before that you rested for a month, and did not crammed tickets? Get ready for a thorough skin treatment. Perfectly even tone, contouring and a double dose of highlighter can work wonders. If you master this technique, you can use the “chips” of glow-makeup in your daily looks.

  1. Do you have time to prepare your skin in advance? Do it! Ideally, you should start competently caring for your face at least a week in advance (we hope you do): use every day a gel or foam for washing, then tonic (for the final cleansing) and, of course, a moisturizing serum or cream.

  2. On day X, wash your face thoroughly, apply a cream that will not roll under makeup, and wait until the product is absorbed. Follow with L'Oréal Paris Infaillible Color Correcting Primer. It will help prolong the durability of makeup and mask redness, if any.

  3. Arm yourself with concealer. For pronounced dark circles under the eyes or noticeable imperfections, choose thicker textures, such as Effacernes Long Tenue by Lancôme. A lighter texture can be found at L'Oréal Paris - True Match La Touche Magique.Carefully work through all areas, if necessary, layering the product on the skin.

  4. The next step involves a little trick. Take a foundation with a radiant effect - we have Luminous Silk by Giorgio Armani - and add a little liquid highlighter to it. Mix the substance until smooth and carefully (no wonder makeup artists can distribute the tone for 5-10 minutes) blend it on your face with a brush.

  5. Then take a peach cream blush and highlight the cheekbones, moving in the direction from the lips to the temples.

  6. Highlighter is not far away, because it's time to place accents on the face. Apply it over the blush along the upper border, on the check mark above the lip, bridge of the nose, tip of the nose, middle of the chin and the area between the nose and the apples of the cheeks. There should not be clear boundaries, so carefully shade everything with a dense brush.

  7. Makeup is almost ready! It remains to apply a tint balm or a drop of lip gloss to the lips, tidy up the eyebrows and make up the eyes. Take a liquid eyeshadow (such as Giorgio Armani's Eye Tint) and spread it over your lids and lower lids. At the end, paint over your eyelashes with your favorite mascara - and go to the ball!

Idea 2: lip accent

Red lipstick, as you know, does not need partners: it is able to stretch the image even without complex eye makeup and face contouring. Yes, and the occasion matches: scarlet lipstick looks solemn and perfectly complements the outfit in the same bright colors. And most importantly, you will not need too many tools for makeup - products to even out the tone, mascara, lip pencil and, of course, the lipstick itself.

  1. I want to start with the main character of the makeup - red lipstick, but to make it look harmonious on the face, you need to at least even out the skin tone.

  2. We suggest choosing matte or velvet textures and take Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation. It helps hide imperfections and, importantly for a long evening, is durable. If it seems to you that certain areas (under the eyes or near the nose) lack coverage, work these areas with a corrector.

  3. Then start with the eyebrows: they should be noticeable, but neat. First, you can draw the desired shape with the Brow Blade marker from Urban Decay, and then fix the position of the hairs with the transparent Unbelieva Brow gel from L’Oréal Paris.

  4. Since there will be only mascara on the eyes, it is better to choose the option that gives volume to the eyelashes. For example, Lash Clush by YSL. Apply it to both upper and lower lashes.

  5. Ready for the main event? We've found a lipstick that looks great without the support of a pencil, but if you're more comfortable with contouring ahead of time, that's certainly fine.So, let's take a look at Lancôme's L'Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick. It has a convenient applicator to help shape lips and a long-wearing matte formula that outperforms even classic lipsticks when it comes to dancing until the morning.

Idea 3: focus on the eyes

Of course, you can look away from such eyes, but I want to linger. Intensively worked out contour of the eyelids (inside and out), as well as thickly painted eyelashes do their job. In a duet with a laconic beam, you can get a spectacular look that declares that you are a purposeful girl and know what you want.

  1. This make-up involves only one bright accent, so we apply the Stay Naked semi-matte foundation from Urban Decay on the face, and under the eyes - the Stay Naked lasting concealer of the same brand.

  2. Apply Lancôme's Blush Subtil dry blush on the cheekbones or on the apples of the cheeks in a delicate shade of pink, and apply a colorless balm on the lips.

  3. Let's move on to the eyes. For convenience, take a palette in which colors have already been selected that are harmoniously combined with each other. For example, La Petite Palette from L'Oréal Paris. Blend dark shades closer to the outer edge of the eyelids, and lighter shades closer to the inner corners of the eyes and under the eyebrows.

  4. Travel the mucous contours of the eyelid with a black or dark gray pencil. Go for long-lasting formulas like Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On pencil.

  5. Densely coat upper and lower lashes. In our opinion, Paradise mascara from L'Oréal Paris, from which we are simply delighted, will be the winning one. The brush allows you to work out the cilia at the very roots, and without it - nothing if you plan on luxurious smoky eyes.
