So it is officially Prom Season and I've got a bunch of great prom makeovers for you all. It was so much fun working on students from Osborne High School for my non-profit's Prom Makeup Fundraiser. Today's look features a gorgeous metallic gold eye. Check it out!
My client knew what she wanted - she whipped out an instagram makeup eye shot which featured a gold smokey eye. I used MAC eyeshadows on her eyes - MAC Goldmine on the lid topped with a NYX Yellow Gold Ultra Mania Loose Pearl Eyeshadow. I applied this shadow wet to give high shine and also applied just a bit of gold glitter sparingly on the inner lid. On the tearduct I paled Urban Decay X eyeshadow for a light champagne pop. On the rest of the eye, I used MAC texture and Saddle to warm up the crease and Carbon to smoke out the lid,
My client's eyebrows were naturally amazing. I just filled it in just a smidge with some Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder. My client didn't want lashes at first, but I encouraged her to give a natural pair a try and she loved it!
I kept the skin pretty natural. I used Graftobian's Super Cream Palette in Neutral. I accidentally left my go to warm palette at home but this one worked just as well. She didn't want contouring so instead I added a subtle higlight with a lighter shade of foundation. We added a pinky blush and shimmer on the cheeks to give the face a glow.
On her lips I lined with Cork Lip Pencil. She brought her own bright peachy pink lipstick. I like how the shade brought a bit of color to her lips but I manipulated it a bit by adding a brown lipliner and a pink gloss to tone it down so it coordinated with the smokey eye.
I tell yah, it's so easy to do makeup on young naturally pretty girls, makes my job easy! I have a few more prom makeovers that I will be sharing soon. Stay tuned!
She also did not want contouring or false lashes. As a makeup artist, my job is to satisfy the client and sometimes that takes a bit of consulting to find her best look. I didn't do heavy contouring but instead I did subtle highlighting to still give her face dimension.
