Prom Makeup for all Dress Colors

Here is a look I came up with for this year's prom, as many of my teen viewers have been requesting that I do a look dedicated to this special event in any teen's high school life. Not only will this look match pretty much any dress color, but it will also photograph really nicely. Make sure to choose a foundation without SPF or any mineral sunscreen in it for the special night, since you'll probably be doing a lot of flash photography (whether it's with your own camera or by a professional), and that can cause flashback in pictures.

Watch my tutorial how to get this flattering look!

Products used:

Kryolan Eyeshadow base, Catrice Black gel eyeliner, Smashbox Smokebox II, Smashbox Softbox II, MAC Malt and Soft Brown, L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige, Anastasia Brow Duality in Matte Shell, Rimmel Scandaleyes, L'Oreal Magic Lumi primer (used as highlighter), MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Play in Proper, Aleverde Desert Rose blush, Catrice Lost in the Rosewood lipliner, Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Pink Ice

If you already had prom, what was your dress color? Mine was this lacy black and blue number. It was pretty awesome!

High Glamor Evening Make-up

I wanted to try out a very glamorous makeup up look that would be perfect for photo shoots, or a special evening make-up when you want to look very dolled up! Maybe an evening wedding reception, a fancy restaurant, a night at the Opera, whatever...

If you want to try it out, check out my step-by-step tutorial!

Now the bad part...I filmed this video months ago so I don't recall every single product that I used. Sorry! But here's a partial list of some of the products I do remember.

Eye shadows:
I don't remember the exact shadows I used, but to recreate this look you will need 1 light shimmery beige color, one mid-tone brown shimmery color, and a dark matte brown shadow. For the liner use a matte black shadow, and for the highlight a matte skintone color that suits your own skin color.

MAC Shimpagne Mineralize Skinfinish (LE), and sorry I don't remember the exact blush!!
