Watch the video tutorial here! :)
You better believe that's a sparkly tiara I just photoshopped onto my head. Bow down to me, I am your prom queen!!! Hahaha, who am I kidding...I've never even been to "prom". In Ireland there is only one thing that's close to prom and it's called a debs (short for debutante ball). It usually happens right after the summer that you finish school (6th year). I would show you a picture from mine but my two debs photos are at my parents' house!! Boo :( I will try and find them and post them so I can show you guys though. Oh, and there's no prom king and queen either (at least there wasn't when I was in school). It's not as exciting or glamorous as it sounds..."debutante ball"...hahaha!
For the makeup I kept it really fresh, girly and youthful. I went for pinks, minimal foundation and a neutral lip. Here are the products I used:
FACE: Benefit Boi-ing Concealer (not pictured), The Body Shop Illuminating Face Base, Benefit Get Even Powder, Benefit Hoola Bronzer, NYX Pinky Blush, Maybelline Dream Mousse Shimmer #1 Porcelain.
EYES & LIPS: Sedona Lace 120 Pro Palette 2nd Edition (the shadows that are starred ;) Maybelline Line Definer, Impala Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil, CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara, Avon Hollywood Lights Lipgloss Celebrity Pink.
I also used a matte brown shadow from my Sedona Lace 88 Warm Palette to fill in my brows. Don't forget you can get $4 off your next purchase on the Sedona Lace website if you use my promo code, "THESTYLEDIET"!
The hair is an Audrey Hepburn inspired updo which is super easy to achieve! You basically just make a really high pony-tail, make a hole at the top and feed the pony-tail through the underneath part of the hole. Then pull tightly on the ends and fold them underneath to make a cute, fanned out little bun. Fasten with bobby pins and set with hairspray if you wish! You could also back-comb the pony-tail if your hair is thinner or less textured than mine! I suggest placing a little tiara right in front of the bun for a little prom queen glamour!
This is what the back looks like!
I hope this tutorial will help those of you who have prom/debs/whatever you wanna call it coming up this year! I personally don't have a prom to attend but I still rocked this around the house in my sweats and even took the pups for a walk...I got a couple of funny looks but hey, that's the fun part about being a YouTube guru...hahaha!
