Prom season is here and I've put together some looks that should suit most everyone. From intense color, to classic makeup, smokey eyes, and of course glitter!
This look is a blue smokey eye with glitter. You could of course not use the glitter though. It's warmed up in the crease with orange tones to keep it from looking like a bruise.
Products are as follows:
Makeup Geek: Boo Berry as the navy base. Pegasus in the inner corner. Corrupt as definition in the outer corner. Curfew a purple in the low crease, then Poppy an orange shade for warmth with a big fluffy brush so that it's just a touch of warmth. Poolside is the lower lash line and then Boo Berry on the outer half.
Glitter is Glitter Injections in Peacock. You could use almost any glitter though that has blue along other colors of glitter in them.
House of Lashes Smokey Muse lashes.
This look is super dark with chunky glitter and a harsh wing. You could use tape to get that harsh line but I don't like that method. I prefer to sketch it out with an angled brush and then liner. If there are any mistakes I use the angled brush to clean them up by dipping it in makeup remover.
Makeup Geek Corrupt on the lid. Mocha and Cocoa Bear in the crease which are browns and then Chickadee which is a very light orange is the transition shade.
Beauty Bar Baby glitter in Champagne Cocktail on he inner part of the lid.
Lips are Colour Pop Rayezor
This is a timeless, classic look. With the red lip and matte grey smokey eye. It's beefed up some with the winged liner.
Smashbox Cosmetics Art. Love. Color. (I think that's how it goes. lol) all matte grey shadows.
Colour Pop gel liner in Swerve
Violet Voss Vamptress lashes
Colour Pop Succulent on the lips
This look is a smokey neutral halo eye. It's dramatic but not incredibly uniform and clean cut. There is no liner with this and you don't have to be so careful blending because not a lot of colors are being used. It's still a great neutral brown smokey eye that works for anything. You could easily change the center color to whatever you want like a more yellow gold, a duo chrome peachy pink, an orange. Something foiled would also be very pretty. Or even glitter.
Makeup Geek: Americano on the inner and outer corners and up in the crease some. Preppy as the blending shade in the crease and transition shade. Light Year Sparkler in the center of the lid. Which is a pigment/glitter hybrid that has a peachy pink opalescent color to it.
House of Lashes Boudoir Lashes
Dose of Colors Stone on the lips
This is a very colorful peach, pink, orange and purple. It's super foiled and bright looking which I love and then glittery with the purple. With a nude pink lip. Also the skin is much warmer as well.
Makeup Geek: Chickadee as the transition shade in the crease. Poppy heavily in the crease for it's orange color. Cherry Cola low on the outer crease for definition. Mai Tai on the majority of the lid, inner corner, and lower lash line. Light Year is then put over top of Mai Tai to make it pop more and look more foiled.
MBA Cosmetics Pressed Glitter in Amethyst Moon on the outer half of the lid. Pressed Glitter is tricky you have to make sure you have the look exactly where you want it because once you add he primer and pressed glitter (which is more opaque than loose glitter) there is no changing it.
Lena Lashes Monroe lashes
Melt Cosmetics Sext lipstick
Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in Bronzed.
Ofra Cosmetics You Dew You highlight
The last and final look which is like a sunset. It'd be gorgeous with red, orange, yellow and maybe even a warm pink dress. It's mainly foiled which I love.
Makeup Geek: Poppy in the crease, Bitten lower in the crease and outer corner, Razzleberry in the center, Fortune Teller foiled shadow inner part of the lid and on the lower lash line. Hologram on the inner half over the shadows. Light Year in the inner corner.
Violet Voss Sexy and Eye Know It 3d Faux Mink lashes
Color Pop Cake on the lips
So these are all looks I think would be great for prom. Hopefully I've put something in for every color dress or ensemble out there. I hope you find one to your liking. If you're doing makeup yourself be sure to play around about 2 weeks in advance to perfect and find what you like. If you're on a budget check out etsy for glitters like Beauty Bar Baby, or Fairy Vibez for pressed glitters. Also the drugstore has come a long way as well. NYX has a great concealer out right now called Gotcha Covered which is full coverage as can be. Milani 2 in 1 foundation is a great full coverage foundation. Lashes are super easy to find, I recommend Ardell Wispies everytime or a half strip of lashes. Physicians formula has good bronzers and of course NYX contour kit is good as well.
Good luck and be safe!!
Today I'm going to talk about neutral looks and how you can bring a little something extra to them with a pop of color. Whether that be on the lid it self or with your lip color. So I have three. Two of them I've linked videos to that I done for Instagram.
This look above, I actually seen @wickedbeautification on Instagram do with similar colors. I modified it somewhat to my own vision and used different products. Her's is gorgeous so you should check it out for sure, she's so talented. It had more plum/berry shades in it without the inner corner teal part. Mine is a bit more red brown, oranges and a lighter teal somewhat.
Here's what I used to do mine:
This is a more cool toned brown eye (halo again) which when you add pink over it it tends to look a little purple. I try to keep the brown tone as much as possible so I add in warmer tones to cancel out any purple it's trying to bring out. It has some orange on the lower lash line. I have a video for it here which will take you through the whole "halo" technique I use for all halo looks pretty much. Now you could actually add in much more brown to make this even more neutral. I went in hard with the pink so you may want to do less. The Star Powder pigment brings iridescence, it's not necessarily vital to the look though. You could use the pink shades and just go with a darker pink halo eye which is still beautiful.
Here's what I used:
My lipstick is ABH Lovely liquid lipstick.
This look I really love because it's a warm neutral smokey eye with an ombre lip that has a bright red center. I have a video on how I done my ombre lip here. The eyes can be modified to what ever you want as well as the lips, I just wanted to include a pop of color that wasn't necessarily on the eye.
Here's what I used:
Lips are Feminist lip liner from Colour Pop and Atlantic City liquid lipstick from Ofra Cosmetics.
So those are my latest, and best three examples of easy ways to add in color to your makeup. Whether it be daily, or for a special occasion they all would be suitable. My birthday is Friday so I'm thinking the first one with the teal is going to be my birthday look. If I don't find something I like better. Right now though it's my favorite. Also check out my Instagram (@lovemascara) for small tutorial videos every few days. I'm still working through the lighting and angles though so bear with me, I'm trying to better the quality of them.
I'll sign off now and I hope this was helpful, remember to be kind to each other. Spread love not hate. I appreciate you and take care!
So it's prom and you've decided to do you're makeup yourself or are forced to do your makeup yourself. So in this post I'm gonna give you some easy full proof ways to get really nice makeup without having a panic attack.
I hope you picked up something helpful from this post and if you're going to prom have a fun SAFE time.
Prom season is upon us and instead of doing a bunch of looks for prom I figured I'd go through some I've already done. Which then led me to group them into categories of what color you might be wearing to prom. First off, I never feel like your eyeshadow has to match your outfit but if you're more comfortable doing that or prefer it that way then this post is for you. You can add or take away to tweak this to your liking as well. It's just makeup, it washes right off.
First up is blue and green dresses. These 4 looks I chose would look great with a blue or green dress no matter the intensity of the color whether it's dark or pale i believe one of these may work for you.
A popular color around prom is purple. So I chose these to go with your purple dress. The last would could also work for a green dress too. Do be afraid to add a pop of color or glitter to the eye in a color that your not wearing. It can be very eye catching and flattering at times.
Next we have your Reds, Pale Pink, Hot Pink, and Burgundys. You know how much I love cranberry and burgundy shades so there was a ton of looks for that. Pink on the other hand can be intimidating but I find that most of the time it can be very flattering and pretty.
Moving onto orange and coral tones. Which I don't remember seeing a lot of at my prom, and I don't know why cause it can be so pretty. I realized I actually use a lot of orange and coral shadows. They're very flattering I think. The last two pictures would go well with a purple dress too. Also, rose gold shadows and glitters look amazing with these looks if you want to add a little more sparkle.
This last set is for those timeless dresses like gold, black, white, silver and so on. It's also completely neutral incase what you're looking for is glamorous but neutral. Which when in doubt is what I would do. I'd do false lashes and a neutral eye with a mauve lip and call it a day. If it were me that is. You do whatever you're comfortable with. These looks are all on my Instagram with details of what specific shadows I used. My IG is @lovemascara so go follow me and if you're going to prom BE SAFE and have a fun time!
Greetings everyone! Since we're getting into warmer months, it's the season for proms and weddings. Now, my wedding was a fall wedding in October but my best friend's was in June that same year and most weddings are typically in the warmer months. As a matter of fact I have once coming up at the end of this month actually. So I wanted to go over some things that I've found were necessary and helpful for special things. So lets get into it:
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to start blogging and do these things I love because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me!
