I appologize for not posting in forever, long story short I had lots of exams and have really bad anxiety, so I had about a month of no sleep. But the exams are over now and im gradually dealing with anxiety.
Now for the exciting stuff, yesterday I had my prom. And whilst prom is often built up to be more than it is, I enjoyed getting ready and 4 hours with new and old friends at prom.
As always, I’ll post the finished makeup look first.
Now to start with no makeup!
Foundation (believe it or not I tried not to over-do it with foundation).
Concealer, under my eyes and a bit on my cheeks so ‘blank out’ my skin colour so I could add in colour later with bronzer and blush.
Eyebrow wax,powder and setting gel. This is a monumental moment because I actually like how my eyebrows look here.
All that glitters eyeshadow all over the lid and on my lower lashline.
Woodwinked in the crease.
Satin taupe in the outer crease and lid. I also put it on the outer half of my lower lashline.
Browbone highlight with Brule. *unexpected lighting change*
Now for an inner corner highlight!
Now for liquid liner on my top lashline and black gel liner on my waterline (Because yano apparantly I cant do anything different with eyeliner).
Next for my favourite part, Mascara and eyelashes. I can even tell you how much I love Ardell demi wispie lashes.
Neext I apllied a darker contour colour and placed it under my cheekbones and under my chin (because I dont recommended double chins for prom).
Now for a bit of matte coral blush on the apples of my cheeks. I blend it back into the contour so it all blends into eachother.
All thats left is lipstick. Im not the biggest fan of lipgloss so I skipped on that.
For my hair, I curled it in sections and back-combed the hair surrounding my face. I then used a ton of hairspray, potentially enough to create another ozone layer.
I promised to show what I was wearing in an earlier blog posted when I briefly talked about prom. I had a bit of an adventure finding dresses. The one im wearing was actually my third prom dress. The first I saw in person but they didnt have my size so I ordered it online (it was by Jane Norman by the way). The next I got from Victorias dress, £25 shipping (I almost died when I saw that) and £70 for a custom made dress which was completely different from the picture and made me look like an obese fairy it was this one > http://www.victoriasdress.co.uk/a-line-high-neck-sleeveless-tulle-party-dresses-with-ruffles-fj921.html
In a third attempt for a prom dress, I went shopping in person and despite it not being very prom-like I bought a flamingo dress by the brand Henry Holland.
So here are some pictures I took before I went to prom:
