Prom Makeup Tutorial - All Drugstore Products!

Hi Bellas,

I'm excited to finally upload this tutorial.  I wanted to wait for prom season and here we are!  This is my first prom tutorial and I wanted to use all drugstore products to make it affordable.  This is a glam smokey eye that would look good with any skin tone and any dress color. I also show you the Scott Barnes foundation method, something new!  Check it out!
Check out the video!
I made it super detailed because I really wanted to teach my younger audience how to do their makeup in time for Prom.

Here are the products I used!
For the eyes, you can pretty much use any silver, dark purple, and champagne colors.  I found two drugstore quads that work - the L'Oreal Colour Riche Smokey Eyes Palette and Revlon Photoready Renaissance Palette.
The first product I used was L'Oreal Decrease Eyeshadow Primer.  I also used Wet N Wild Gel Liner, a Prestige Brow Pencil, and Maybelline the Rocket Volume Mascara.  To give the look some glam I used Ardell Double Up Lashes and Revlon Lash Adhesive.
For the face, I primed with Maybelline Age Rewind Face Primer then used Physician's Formula Yellow Concealer as a highlighter base with Revlon Lumi Foundation in W6 on top.  I further highlighted with L'Oreal Magic Lumi Concealer in Medium and set it all with Neutrogena Shine Control powder.  From there, I used Milani XL Bronzer in 02 Fake Tan and a pink blush by Jane.


For lips, I gave two options:  A Bright Hot Pink and a Nude Option.  You can use whatever lippy you like in this look since it's a pretty standard neutral smokey eye.
The Final Look!


With bright lips!
I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial.  If you are attending Prom this year or even doing the makeup for someone attending, please send me your pics!

Great job on putting together a very detailed tutorial that can be followed by 1st times as well as experts!! I'm doing my niece's makeup for prom...we're actually doing a trial this saturday since I'm a novice and want to be sure to do her justice. I think this is the template we're going to rock with provided she approves. her dress is gold and silver. Peace and Blessings. Shani

I would love to win the MAC Archie's Girl Pearlmatte Powder in Flatter Me because I love highlighter powder but don't own any from mac and would totally love to try this one.
