With commencement right around the corner, colegialas face a flurry of decisions—not the least of which involve your hair and makeup for the big day. We want to help! Consider the three pegs below for your final college #FOTD. Our only tip: choose what will make you feel most comfortable. Grad photos last forever!
OPTION 1: MODERN GLAM
No one tackles a special occasion like Anne Curtis. This look is all about the lips, painted crimson by makeup artist Robbie Piñera. We love Anne’s brushed-up brows, fluffy lashes, and accentuated cheekbones, too. And with her flat-ironed hair parted straight down the middle, she’s giving us serious Gwyneth Paltrow vibes.
GET THE LOOK! MAKEUP: Ofra’s Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Atlantic City + Red Cherry Lashes #205 + CoverGirl’s Instant Cheekbones in Sophisticated Sable. HAIR: Bedhead/TIGI’s Seriously Straight Straightener + Herstyler’s Colorful Seasons Ceramic Iron.
OPTION 2: SLEEK & CHIC
Liz Uy’s pink pout and winged lids are instant classics, thanks to the handiwork of MUA Denise Ochoa. But what really gives the look a cool-girl spin is that side-parted, slicked-back coif—a Liz signature.
GET THE LOOK! MAKEUP: NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Roman Holiday + Y.E.T.’s Art Class Liquid Eyeliner in 01 Kill Black + Laura Mercier’s Second Skin Cheek Colour in Orange Blossom. HAIR: Tangle Teezer’s The Original Professional Detangling Brush + Davines’ Wizard No. 4 Glossy Molding Putty.
OPTION 3: SUPER FRESH
Doesn’t Janella Salvador look every bit the ingénue in this photo? Apparently, she did her own makeup! Those glossy lips and pink cheeks are great for a summer ceremony—and the dabs of highlighter in the corners of her eyes are a nice touch. That hair, though! We can’t get enough of her volumized waves, courtesy of hair guru John Valle.
GET THE LOOK! MAKEUP: Max Factor’s False Lash Effect 24-Hour Mascara + Palgantong Cosmetics’ Pop Cheek Blush in Baby Pink + NYX’s Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Tea Rose. HAIR: Suesh’s Velcro Hair Curlers + Bedhead/TIGI’s Superstar Volumizing Hairspray.
