Prom Make-up ideas: Look 2

I remember the only thing getting me through my GCSEs was the thought of prom at the end of it. The one night where us regular folk can dress up like celebrities at the Oscars and it be considered the norm. Getting ready for it had to have been the best part, I spent a good part of two weeks prior to the big day trialing different make-up looks from a simple winged liner to a full on smokey eye. So I've decided to start a mini series showing you different make up looks you could try for your prom as inspiration.

So here's the second look in this series. It's a bronze, shimmery smokey eye paired with nude glossy lips.I haven't included false lashes in this one, but there's no reason why you couldn't add them on,  after all, prom only happens once so you might as well go all out...

  1. Start off by applying your favourite foundation, preferably one without spf. Then go in and perfect your skin and cover any dark circles with concealer, then set with a powder
  2. Then prime your eyes and wait for that to do it's thing, whilst you move onto brows. Just define the brows for this look, fill in any gaps and just neaten them up.
  3.  Moving back to the eyes, I applied NYX jumbo eye pencil in Bronze all over the lid and blended it in with my finger; this gave a base for my Tan pigment by MAC to cling on to. For the crease I used the crease shade (warm toned shimmery brown) in the Wet and Wild Comfort Zone palette, then I went in with the definer shade (dark shimmery brown with a slight red tone) in the outer v. For the inner corner and brow bone highlight, I used the Collection work the colour eyeshadow pencil and then to set it I used the brow bone shade (light shimmery champagne)from the same Wet and Wild palette. I also ran the tan pigment underneath my eyes along with the definer shade in the outer corner. 
  4. I lined my eyes using the L'oreal Super liner and winged it out slightly. Then apply a few coats of your favourite mascara
  5. Back to the skin, use a bronzer to warm up the complextion and contour. Then apply highlight for that glowy finish.
  6.  On the lips I used MAC Creme Cup and then Maybeline colour sensational colour gloss in the shade extravagant pink over the top.

The warm tones used in this look are so flattering on many skin tones and would look especially nice if you're lucky and get a nice sunny evening for your prom. There's no reason that it can't recreated for a night out or wedding or any occasion really, just change up the intensity according to the event.
