After four long years of sleepless nights and laborious research papers, you’re finally graduating. Congrats! You totally deserve to have your own moment as you walk across the stage and receive that diploma. 

Moving on to the next order of business: Your graduation photo. We don’t mean to pressure you, but you only have one chance to do this right. You’ve probably been neglecting your beauty routine over the past few years, but it’s about time you trade in those index cards for your makeup bag. To help you get started, here’s a roundup of seven celeb-inspired graduation makeup looks you can easily recreate by yourself. 

1. Erika Poturnak

Apply a shimmery champagne eyeshadow along your lids to brighten and accentuate your eyes. Finish with a muted red lippie for that subtle touch of vintage Hollywood glam.

2. Atasha Muhlach 

If you want to go all out, go for dark, bold brows and smokey winged liner to match. Stick to neutral tones for the rest of your face to balance out the dramatic eyes. 

3. Lorin Gutierrez 

This all-peach makeup look is a minimalist alternative that’s perfect for low-key girls. Quick tip: The color looks best against a barely-there base.

4. Kelsey Merritt

Kelsey’s subtle warm-toned blush naturally complements morena skin tones. Enhance the glowy, sun-kissed cheeks with a touch of highlighter on your cupid’s bow, brow bone, and inner corners.

5. Xyriel Manabat

Use a cool-toned contour powder on your cheeks to bring out your cheekbones when you smile for the cameras. Soften the sculpted look with a sweep of clear lip gloss. 

6. Alexa Ilacad

Mimic a flushed post-workout glow by using a rosy tint on your cheeks, nose, and lips. Tie everything in with a glossy and dewy highlighter like Alexa’s.
