Hi, I'm Alice Von Simson, licensed cosmetologist and owner of Secret Salon in Carlsbad, California. In this video, I'm going to be showing you how to do your makeup for graduation. Now your graduation maybe during the day or it maybe in the evening. But I'm going to show you how to do some makeup that you can change later on and take to the party. You want to look beautiful and you want to look fresh. Conceal under the eyes. And I like to do this in a little triangle rather than a circle. So, I'm going to paint it on thick. So you can see exactly where I'm going. It's like a sort of sad clown. If you do that half circle under the eyes, then it can actually make that area look puffier. Where as this kind of highlights all the way down the cheek and just smooths out that surface. For the foundation, I'm going to use a brush makeup on Andrea. But you can use any foundation that you like. My advice would just be to go into maybe one of the stores, Ulta or Sephora and have them match your color exactly. Because that's going to be the most important part. I'm going to use the naked palette on Andrea's eyes. I'm going to start with a nice light color and I'm going to get that in the inner corners of the eyes there. Just to really open them up. I'm using a pale sort of purply-pink color because she's got brown eyes. So I think that's going to look really pretty. And I'm just going to wash that across the lid there. I'm going to a little, slight lift in the corner just to give her that nice almond shape. Apply a mascara, this one's by MUD and it comes in a squeezy tube. I'm applying it with a fan brush. But if you're applying it on yourself obviously you can just use the brush that comes with it. Apply false lashes if you want them. My best tip is to always let the glue dry, sorry, for at least 30 seconds before you stick them on this. That's how most people get into trouble, is having the glue too wet. Finish off your look with a little bit of lipstick. I'm going to use Prim Rose from Smashbox, which is one of my favorites.
