Blune Day 18: The Makeup I wore to convocation

Alas, I recently did a post about what I learned in university and today I thought I would write about what I wore makeup wise for my graduation. It was a very hot day, I’m talking plus 40 and the humidity was quite the time. I wanted to keep my base light but still nice enough for the photos and the flash photography.

I then used the Nudestix Bondie Bae to do some bronzing because since it was so hot I wanted to use some cream products. I then using my Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer over the top for a bit of extra bronze because I love me a bronzy glow. Then I went with my tried and true classic the Balm Mary- Lou Manizer. For my blush I used the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit, I mixed the two blushes because they were neutral and matched my whole look.

As an overall setting product I used the Cover Fx perfect setting powder which worked well, but quite honestly I was sweating like a mammer so I can’t say this really stood the test of setting but I feel like it did a decent job so I’m giving it all the credit.

For my eyes, again a tried and true I used the Naked 3 palette. I just love the Naked 3, I know a controversial fave. I used Limit and nooner in the crease, then mugshot all over the lid and dusk on the inner corner. I just love the simple looks you can create and the looks are simple and classy which is what I was going for.

For the lips I went with Lush perspective. Again my favourite. Every time I have a job interview or special event I wear this. IT is the perfect my lips but better colour and works with basically any eyeshadow and blush.
