Recently I’ve shared my Prom Experience and today’s post is dedicated to recreating my prom make up look. I did my make up by myself (which is quite obvious), as I didn’t want anything heavy, although that was what every make up artist offered me. My make up wasn’t flawless, as I forgot my eyeliner, didn’t have any appropriate lipstick, and even more obviously – I had never ever heard about proper contouring and highlighting. Anyway, I saved tons of money and was quite happy with the overall look that I’ve achieved at the time.
Skin – Primer, foundation, concealer, bronze
I’m pretty sure I’ve used Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, without even priming. I mean, who has time for all that. No concealer, I remember using the Serum all over my face. Powder? I don’t think so,
Then I used some Avon bronzing pearls, which I stole from my mom, and also hated because they were too difficult to use.
I wanted my eye shadow to match my prom mint coloured dress, which was mission impossible as none of the brands offered any different shades other than browns and pinks. Oh well, I had to improvise. I got this crazy Flormar Palette which had everything I needed. At the time I liked it so much, that I got 3 more palettes but with different shades.
As you can see, they are not very pigmented, but I very much liked the lightest green!
Eyeliner, as mentioned at the beginning was forgotten, and for mascara I just whatever I could find. I don’t believe that my mascara was even branded, or it was so old that the label had been scrubbed.
So this week I used the same eye shadow palette to recreate my look and that’s what I’ve managed to come up with:
I just feel that the eyeliner is my thing and I must have been so stupid to forget it… Anyway, I put some fake eyelashes to finish the look (I do that only for pictures and then take them off), some nude lipgloss/lipbalm, aaaand that’s pretty much it! Hope you enjoyed it!
