Graduation makeup is all about looking natural and effortless yet professional and chic. Above all though, your graduation makeup needs to be photo-friendly. A pro tip is to consider a foundation with no SPF if possible. SPF tends to give the skin a pale/ghost like appearance in photos where flash has been used.
With this in mind, we’ve shortlisted a handful of professional makeup artists based out of Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick who specialise in graduation makeup and will travel to your home, hotel or venue of choice on your special day.

Tips for picture perfect makeup
- Use a primer – it helps fill uneven areas, helps your makeup apply more evenly and promotes longevity.
- Wear waterproof mascara – since graduations can get pretty emotional.
- Go for a matte finish – the camera tends to add an unnatural sheen particularly if flash is used.
- Avoid current trends, graduation photos are long lasting mementos so you’ll want your makeup to look timeless rather of a particular moment in time.
Booking a Makeup Artist
We recommend booking your makeup artist as early as possible – ideally 3 months or more in advance of your graduation day. While it may seem early, many MUA’s have limited availability for this year, with some already booked for next year. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response to your enquiry.
