Hey friends! Hope you are all well. Recently, it was my university graduation so there were MANY pictures taken as expected. Therefore, today I will be showing you what I think are trusted, essential items that you should bring to any special day to ensure your make up is always looking it’s best. I always recommend you use products you are familiar with to make sure you are not unhappy with your pictures. The look I wore on the day you can find here.

Hairbrush – This was probably the best item I brought because of major hat hair. We were not allowed to wear our hat in the ceremony but obviously took pictures with it before and after. The Tangle Teezer  was the perfect size to fit into my bag for some quick touch ups.

Powder – I brought Rimmel’s Stay Matte Powder in the colour Translucent. I don’t tend to get oily skin but I wanted to be prepared just0020 in case I started to sweat due to the robes. Powder would be an obvious choice with anyone who has oily to combination skin.

Blush – Unfortunately, the sun was not shining much on my day so bringing my blusher was a great way to add a pop of colour. I used No7’s Natural Blush Tint Powder in the colour Coral Flush.

Kabuki Brush – This is such a great universal tool for your face. It is much easier bringing one brush than five! The round shape means the brush blends powdered make up evenly on the skin and creates a very natural looking coverage.

Lipstick – There is a lot of talking, champagne-drinking and eating on any special day so reapplication may be necessary even with the most long-wearing lipstick. I recommend a nude colour just in case the lipstick does wear off, it would be less noticeable.

Perfume – It can get a little sweaty under those robes so nothing helps like a little perfume. I love Tom Ford’s Noir perfume not only because of the smell but also the size.

I hope you enjoyed this small guide to what to bring to any celebration. Also congratulations to anyone graduating or marking any special occasion! Til’ next time, bye! Una x
