My Prom Makeup Look


If you weren’t aware, I had my prom last Thursday. Instead of paying someone to do my makeup, I thought that I would just do it myself and today I am going to share with you how I did it and what products I used.

I started off by using the Benefit Porefessional Primer as a base. This is so good at making your foundation last longer and it also fills in pores, giving you a much smoother base to apply your makeup to. The foundation that I used was the L’Oreal True Match. I have been using this a lot recently and have found this to be great for the summer, as it is light on your skin but still has good coverage. It was perfect for prom as it didn’t have flashback in photos, and it stayed put throughout the whole evening. I blended this in with a Real Techniques Cheek Brush.

For concealer, I used a combination of two, which were the Rimmel Wake Me Up and the Benefit Boiing. I used the Wake Me Up concealer under my eyes to brighten them up, and I used the Boiing concealer to cover any blemishes and redness around my nose.

The next thing that I did was fill in my eyebrows with the Rimmel Proffessional Eyebrow Pencil in the colour 002 Hazel. This pencil is very natural looking and lasts for a long time. 
When powdering my face, I didn’t want a completely matte look, and wanted to leave my skin with a slightly dewy finish, but not so much so that I looked oily. The power that I used was the MAC Prep and Prime CC Colour Correcting Loose Powder. I applied a very light coating over my face and then focused it more on my nose and forehead because that is where I usually get the most oily.

To contour, I used the Benefit Hoola Bronzer and the Real Techniques Contour Brush. This is an amazing combination for defining cheekbones. I also used the Rimmel Natural Bronzer and an iOn Beauty Angled Blusher Brush to bronze my cheeks and forehead, and give my skin more of a tanned look. Next I applied the NARS Deepthroat Blusher to my cheeks with a MAC 187 brush. I love this blusher because it is very natural but still has a slight shimmer to it. To highly my cheekbones, I used the MUA Undress Your Skin highlighter and a MAC 130 brush. I do not always love MUA products, but this highlighter has a very pretty colour and shimmer.

The next thing I did was move onto my eye makeup, which is my favourite part and I always enjoy doing it. I started off by applying the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, all over my eyelids. This makes the pigmentation and lasting power of the eyeshadows much better. My eyemakeup all came from the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I created a very natural look, with darker colours such as Darkhorse and Hustle blended into the crease and lighter and more shimmery colours such as Sin on the lid. To finish off I highlighted the inner corners of my eyes and underneath the brow bone with the colour Virgin, which is probably my favourite shade in the whole palette.

I then added a very thin line of the L'Oreal Super Liner to my lash line and then curled my eyelashes. I applied a very tiny bit of the Benefit They're Real Mascara and then applied the Tanya Burr Bambi False Lashes. They look so natural but are so long and fluttery and I love them. To finish my eyes, I added the Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara to my bottom lashes.

To finish the whole look off, I applied the Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in Rouge Fondant to my lips.

I hope you enjoyed reading and found it interesting to see what products I used for my prom makeup!
