Sharing is caring!

The perfect graduation makeup look should enhance your natural beauty while adding just the right amount of glamour to your style. And that’s exactly what I’m about to show you: top makeup ideas for your big night!

1. Rose Gold Graduation Makeup

Rose gold makeup is trending and you shouldn’t miss it for the world. The best part about it is that it looks great on every skin undertone and complexion.

2. Earthy Tones

Combining brown or gold earthy tones on both your lipstick and eyeshadow will give you a natural-looking and yet glamorous style.

3. Lip-gloss And Blush

Are lip gloss and blush enough for your graduation makeup? Well, you’ll still have foundation and mascara but the accent is on these two things.

4. Red Lipstick Graduation Makeup

One thing is for sure: you can never fail with red lipstick, no matter the occasion. And since this is your big day, don’t hesitate to go with this gorgeous shade.

5. Nude Lips And Big Lashes

On the other hand, if you want to accentuate your eyes, the combination of eyeliner, nude lipstick and big lashes is always a good idea.

6. Subtle Pastel Tones

Wearing too vivid pastel makeup might be too much for the graduation night. However, subtle pastel tones will do the trick and give you the look you’re craving.

7. Glittery Eyeliner

But hey, nobody said you can’t spice up your graduation makeup a bit. The most appealing way to do so is with the help of this glittery eyeliner.

8. Soft Glam With Gold Liner

A soft glam graduation makeup with just a dash of yellowish, gold eyeliner is especially flattering for girls with dark complexion due to the enchanting contrast the two produce.

9. Subtle Smoky Eyes

You should probably avoid classic smoky eyes for your graduation makeup because you don’t want your makeup to be too heavy. However, if you’re a fan of this technique, opt for subtle smoky eyes instead.

10. Latte Graduation Makeup

Graduation makeup in latte brownish shade works wonders on blonde girlies. If you don’t believe me, take a closer look at this inspo pic.

11. Purple Graduation Makeup

Remember when I told you that it’s perfectly fine to add a dash of spice to your graduation makeup. This purple eyeshadow is a perfect example of that.

12. Barbie Graduation Makeup

Or should I maybe say Legally Blonde graduation makeup? Either way, this style shows that beauty and brains can definitely go together.

13. Green Graduation Makeup

If you have green, brown, or hazel eyes, this green graduation makeup is calling your name. It would be best to pair it with a nude shade of lipstick or lip gloss.

14. Blue Graduation Makeup

On the other hand, blue or green-eyes girlies will look absolutely enchanting with this blue graduation makeup on their big day. See it for yourself and let me know!

15. Silver Graduation Makeup

If your dress is black or gray, consider the combo of silver graduation makeup and silver jewelry. I promise you one thing: it will get you noticed.

16. Pearl Graduation Makeup

I can guarantee you one thing: there is nothing more sophisticated than pearls. But instead of wearing them as jewelry on your big night, be unique and ask your MUA for a pearl eyeliner.

17. Winged Eyeliner

Speaking of eyeliner… winged technique is a classic for a reason. It accentuates your eyes while visually lifting your entire face. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.

18. Cut Crease Graduation Makeup
