Omg guys!! It's today, it's freaking today! Today is the day every girl in my year has been building up for...Prom (lets face it, it is a bigger event for us girls over boys). The time has come around so fast and by the time you guys have probably read this I would've had my nails done, tidied my house ready for my after party and may even have had my hair done. But, this is how I am doing my makeup for prom. Unless, I have a sudden mind change today.
Firstly I used Benefit's porefessional as a primer and to blur out any pores. Then for the base I wanted to use something that wasn't too glowy as there is a lot of flash photography going on at prom for this reason I used L'Oreal's True Match foundation in the colour Rose Ivory. I find that although this foundation does have SPF in it it doesn't seem to flash back as bad as most foundations. For my concealer I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the colour 01 because it has a high coverage and is great at hiding those pesky dark circles and blemishes. For powder I used Maybelline's Fit Me pressed powder, just to mattify the look and keep the foundation on for longer.
Cheeks and contour
For my cheeks I wanted to ensure I didn't look too pale otherwise I would completely wash out in photographs but I also wanted a bit of a blush because that looks more natural on my pale skin. To bronze my cheek bones and temples I used Bourjois' bronzer in the lightest shade and then used their creamy blusher in the shade 03. To make the look more natural I also made sure my blusher wasn't applied to close to my nose because that is a big makeup "no no". I also used use a very small amount of Soap&Glory's Glow All Out highlighter along the tops of my cheeks, t-zone, cupid's bow and chin to give myself a natural glow. But when I say a little bit I mean a little bit because I do not want that camera washing me out and making me look like Caspar the Ghost!
Eyes and Eyebrows
Okay, so... for the base of my eyeshadow I used Urban Decay's original primer potion, I then went onto use my Naked 3 palette on the rest of my lid, I used Strange on my brow-bone, Limit on my upper lid, and Liar in my crease. I then used Trick in my outer corners to give the look a more rusty effect. Afterwards I blended Liar a little bit under my lower lash line also. For my eyeliner I used Maybelline's 24 hour gel liner and winged it out a little bit (I can't go without a little wing). For my mascara I used Maybelline's The Rocket masacra in waterproof so it lasts all night. Finally for my eyebrows I used an Eylure eyebrow pencil.
I think that is everything! How are you doing your makeup for prom?
