FOTD: Graduation Party Makeup Look!

Hey guys! This past weekend a couple of my husband's and my friends graduated college and had some parties to go with it! I was only able to make it to one on Sunday and had work the other day. I wanted to show you guys what makeup I wore since I was happy with how it came out!

I started out doing my eyes first, so I took a little bit of the bareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer and blended that out all over my lids. A little side note, I'm not a huge fan of this stuff. My shadows crease on me within about 4 hours of applying. Just trying to use this up!

After priming, I decided I wanted to use this bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow Palette called The Star Treatment. I purchased this quite a while ago when Sephora had it on sale, but I think I've only used it once before! 

The first color I took was the pretty gold shade called Extravagance (bottom row, last color) and placed that on the inner half of my lids. I then took the taupe color called Elitist (bottom row, third color) and blended that out really well on the outer half of my lids. After that, I went in with my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette and took the color Naked2 through my crease. I wanted to add a little more definition, so I took the bronze shade from the bareMinerals Palette called Ritzy (top row, last color) and used that to define the outer corners of my eyes and took a little through my crease. The last color I used was Carte Blanche (top row, third color) as a brow highlight. 

After I was finished with the eyeshadow, I was debating whether or not to do a full face of makeup. We were going to be outside and while it wasn't too hot, it rained a little and rain always ruins my makeup. I just opted to conceal my dark under-eye circles first with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in the Fair shade, then I took a little of the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in the 125 Very Fair shade just to brighten a little more. I set all the concealer with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the Transparent shade and then I finished off the eyes with the Clinque High Impact mascara in 01 Black. I've been living this mascara by the way!

I was looking through my blushes and realized I hadn't used this Milani Baked Blush in the color Dolce Pink in a really long time. If I'm remembering right, I hadn't used this since my wedding and honeymoon back in September of last year! I decided to bust it out and swipe it lightly over my cheeks. Ready for the final look?!

Excuse the picture taking skills, I'm definitely not a selfie queen! Also, I forgot to picture what lip gloss I used. I used the NYC Liquid Lipshine gloss in the color Nude York City. 

Oh, the chubbiness of my face! Geez, I'm so not used to taking pictures of myself. Anyways, I hope you all like this look, and to anyone who may have graduated recently or are graduating soon, I send lots of congrats! I'd never been to a graduation party before and I was pretty excited to be there with a bunch of our friends :)
