5 Graduation Makeup Looks

If there’s ever a time to up your look for a milestone moment in Somerville, your graduation day is it! 👩🏽‍🎓 Lucky for you, we have a few looks in mind that’ll have you looking your best! Grads, get some inspo from The Lash Lounge Somerville – Assembly Row on how you can glam up that cap and gown before the big ceremony! 🤩

Look #1: Lash Extensions

You’ve waited so long to finally wear that cap and gown and now the time has come! But how can you jazz up your look for graduation day? Make your eyes the center of the show with lash extensions. Let’s face it, you’ve worked SO hard to get to this pivotal point and you just might shed a couple of tears. With lash extensions, you can rest easy knowing you won’t have mascara running down your face. (Talk about embarrassing!) The best part about getting lash extensions for graduation is that they will make those priceless photos look even better AND they will last longer than just the celebrated day. (You will just need a fill every 2 weeks.)

Finally, lash extensions from The Lash Lounge Somerville – Assembly Row are not one-size fits all. We will customize a lash look to fit you, your unique features and your eye shape. We do this by offering 4 different application methods, which we’ve broken down below. Take a look and see which one is calling your college graduate name!

  • Classic: For this application, we attach one lash extension to your natural eyelash. The results: simple yet show-stopping for a more natural look.
  • Hybrid: If you’re torn between a natural vs voluminous look, this application is for you! Here we beautifully combine classic and volume lashes to create the perfect blend of fullness and texture.
  • Volume: For a bold and beautiful look with fullness and texture, go for our volume application where we attach an ultra-light fan of 2-6 lash extensions to your natural lash for an impactful look. (Note: you get up to 6X the lashes compared to our classic application method.)
  • *Mega Volume: For the ultimate lash look, go for the mega volume! In this application we apply a fan of 7-20 of our lightest lash extensions to each natural lash to give you quite the wow factor! Think red carpet, lush and loud with up to 10X the lashes of our volume application method. (*Before booking, check our services menu to make sure we’re offering this application.)

Look #2: A Colorful Lip

One of the easiest ways to add some life to your look is with a colorful lip! A red lip is timeless and makes a bold statement, while a blush lip is more subtle yet still adds a lovely hue. Just think how adding a pop of color to your pout will look in those photos when you walk across the stage or after the ceremony with friends and family in Somerville! 😍

Thinking of adding lashes to this look? We suggest our hybrid or volume application since either will elegantly enhance that saucy shade added to your lips.

Look #3: No-Makeup Makeup

Into more of a low-key look? The ultra-popular no-makeup makeup look is a perfect fit! By opting for a more natural appearance, you will create a look that is timeless and simple. Products that will make your skin look dewy and fresh, like a tinted hydrating moisturizer, are essential for this look.

To step this look up a notch, add a lash lift from The Lash Lounge Somerville – Assembly Row! This service will add some natural-looking curl to your lash line.

Look #4: Glowing, Rosy Cheeks

A glowing complexion will emulate the pure happiness you’ll be feeling within on grad day. To get this look, go for a rosy cheek with a cream blush paired with a liquid highlighter so you will glow on stage in Somerville!

To really nail this look, our classic lash extensions are where it’s at! Adding this lash application to your look will allow your outer beauty to shine bright!

Look #5: Bold Brows

Gone are the days of neglected brows. Lately, a precise, bold brow to accompany any look has been the way to go. There are so many ways to achieve the bold brow look but our favorite is with eyebrow threading! Getting your brows threaded will ensure that your brows look clean and precise. Another plus: you don’t have to worry about irritation (like you do with waxing) and skin issues the day of graduation. (No one wants that on a big day!) 👎🏼

Product suggestion ➡️ Crystal Lash Wand by yours truly! (Use this to comb your brows and keep them looking shaped and sharp throughout the day).

With all the time, effort and hard work you have put into getting to commencement day, you deserve to look and feel your best!
