Oh how I love prom season! I love getting to know young girls and feeling like I’m in school again. Not to mention, these young ladies will let me do whatever look I think will look best for their features and their dress. I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since my last prom! My goodness, I feel old! I went to 3 of them and had a blast at all three. Each year I made sure to have a completely different look than the year prior. This week and next, I’ll be sharing a couple of inspiration looks that I’m loving this prom season! This first look is my absolute favorite! You can find this AMAZING sort-of “retro” dress here.
1. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette $54: I think most girls are less likely to get this palette out of all of the Naked palettes due to the pink tones. But I’m here to tell you, this is by far the best out of all of them for EVERY skin tone and eye color! Brown/hazel eyes can pretty much do any color shadow and liner, and blue and green eyes look best with warmer tones. I would add pink shades to the warm category (again, this is just my opinion and preference!) so therefore this palette is perfection. It even has a few cooler shades that would look beautiful on brown eyes. To anyone reading this….. You NEED this palette!
2. Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer $44: I would give anything to have my teenage skin back! Well, my high school teenage skin! No fine lines at all! This tinted moisturizer is all you need for prom as far as foundation goes. It gives the skin a beautiful, natural glow. And if you were like me in my middle school days and have blemishes and acne, all you have to do is mix this with your full coverage foundation and you still get that glow!
3. Make Up For Ever PlexiGloss in Nude Pink $19: If you’re going to do a dramatic eye, you need to keep the lip color muted. That’s why I chose this nude gloss for this look. It will look great on any skin tone and with any eye look. And most young girls prefer gloss over lipstick. =)
4. Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer $30: This bronzer is so versatile. You can contour your cheekbones and nose with it or you can use it as a blush. The color is great for everyone because it has the perfect balance of red and yellow undertones. It’s also waterproof so you’ll be ready to sweat and dance the night away!!
I’ll be back next week with a new look! Have a great PROM weekend!!
