Decide what you want to play up
Now it’s time to decide what look you want to go for. Choose one part of your face to highlight, and keep the rest neutral. “If it’s your eyes, mute out the lips and define your cheeks. If it’s your cheeks, lightly stain your lips and go neutral on the eyes. If it’s your lips, highlight your cheekbones and make those eyes glow,” says Nemes.
But overall, think “polished and healthy” when it comes to your makeup, says Cruz. You’ll want to feel professional on your graduation day, so stick to a clean palette with just one pop of color.
