Pretty for Prom #2

Before I start , I would like to say that I am so happy with how many lovely comments there were on the first of my pretty for prom series!

Anyhoo, I thought that this next post could feature around my prom make-up, so I guess this is my first 'how-to' post.


Step 1

Apply Maui Wowie eyeshadow from the Urban Decay eyeshadow up to your eyebrow as a base.

Step 2

Next apply Smog from Urban Decay eyeshadow as a dark coloured shadow and put over your lid and into your crease. To give a slight smoky eye effect, apply a bit of oil slick (also from Urban Decay eyeshadow) onto the outer corners of the eye.

Step 3

Apply Bobbi Brown Gel eyeliner with brush in soft sweeping strokes.

Step 4 

Use Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal eyeliner pencil along your waterline.


I used Bobbi Brown brow kit to help my brows look bolder. Included in this kit is a mini eye brow brush and I used this to apply the mahogany eye/brow shadow to my eyebrows.


 I  used Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Crystal which is shown below and is perfect for the prom/ball look.


I used a bareMinerals flawless application brush for all of the steps below...

Step 1 

Before applying bareMinerals Prime Time foundation primer, make sure your face is clean and moisturised.

Step 2

Apply bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation (Golden Tan) using the well-know bareMinerals method : swirl, tap and buff.

Step 3

Apply bareMinerals warmth which is basically a bronzer. To do this move your brush like you are drawing the number 3 on both sides of your face so from the middle of your forehead to your nose and then in a curve motion down to your chin. This covers the high points of your face.

Step 4

Next apply the bareMinerals mineral veil to give a flawless complexion. Again use the swirl, tap and buff method.

Step 5

Finally, apply MAC sunbasque blush. Apply the blush to the centre of the apple on one side of your face, blending the colour along your cheekbone.

That is my how to : prom make-up done. Hope you enjoyed it! :)
