Look of the Day: Graduation Dinner

Two weekends ago was my graduation dinner and I want to share some photos and how I got ready! This event is planned by students and features a dinner at a downtown hotel plus an afterparty at a pub. It's a really fun event to look forward to and a great reason to get dressed up! A bit late but better late than never right? 

Makeup


I wanted to do a pretty classic face with nice contouring and smokey brown shadows. And then I picked my favorite bright lipstick to add some fun to the look.

Urban Decay Naked Foundation

Hair


I curled my the bottom half of my hair with loose curls. My friend told me to unscrew the clamp of my curler to get a more smooth look and it totally works! Then I took a strand of hair and put some wax on it to give it more texture. I braided this piece and put it across my head and bobby pinned it behind my ear! Then I hairsprayed everything to set it in place!

      Hopefully in the near future I'll do more tutorial posts but my camera is really bad with color and the eyeshadow doesn't show up well. Stay tuned!
