Graduation Makeup.

Graduation is always an exciting point in our lives. No matter what grade your graduating from it's always an exciting, nerve racking, and sad day for everyone. Knowing you will no longer be in the comfort of your old school, knowing your way around and almost everyone there. Some friends turn into strangers when moving up to a different school. But there is always room for new ones. New experiences, new memories to make, and new outlooks on life.

My little sisters recently graduated 5th and 8th grade. Both are extremely nervous moving on to middle school and high school. But I know both are strong enough to handle whatever is thrown their way. Any who I had the pleasure of being my oldest-little sister's and her friends personal beautician for the event. I waxed them from eyebrow to chin lol. I did their hair which I'm a little rusty in that department but turned out great. As well as their makeup. Which was a struggle trying to figure out what they wanted. :P

For my little sister's makeup She wanted something clean and neutral with no dark colors. So I decided to do a bright pinup inspired look using a basic black liner and the coastal scents palette in my kit. The highlight is Sugarpill's Tako on top of Nyx milk pencil. 

Her awesome  friend and basically my adopted sister wanted many different things from silvers and glitters to blues, greens and pinks. I convinced her that a nice silver smokey gradient eye would suite her eye shape and dress very well. I had to get her out of her thick black eye liner routine just once for this look and she loved it. I paired this look with a nice 12 hour stay strong lip stain.

In the end, everyone looked so beautiful and I'm truly proud of these girls. :]
