Old School Glam Prom Makeup Look

This is my third and final prom inspired look and this is definitely my favorite out of the three looks that I created.  I like to call this the old school glam look, mostly because of the red lips.  This makeup look is therefore for my girls that likes a bold lip.   I really hope this little prom series on my blog has been useful in helping you make your day extra special.  I do have a prom tips and tricks post, as well as two other prom inspired makeup looks on the blog, so be sure to check those out as well.  I kept my face makeup the same, so I did not include it in this post, but you can check it out here.



The eye makeup

For this look I used the ELF Little Black Book (Warm Edition) Palette.

  • I started off by applying my concealer all over my eyelid, just to give it an even color.
  •  I then applied a beige color all over my eyelid, just to set the concealer.
  • I then went in with this light brown shade and applied it in the crease and worked it towards the inner corner, as well as the outer corner of my eyelid.
  • Next I applied a darker brown color and again applied it in the crease as well as the inner and outer corners of my eyelid.
  • I then took this plum color and applied it to the same areas.  You also just want to make sure to blend everything out as you apply it.
  • I then went in with this copper color and also applied it to the same areas.  This time I focused more towards the center of the eyelid.
  • To finish the look I applied a little bit of this shimmery color on the center of my eyelid and simply used my finger to dab it on the eyelid.
  • I then applied the Essence Lash Princess Mascara to my top and bottom lashes and took the darker brown shade and placed that under my lash line.


The gorgeous red color on my lips is the Wet n Wild lipstick Cherry Frost Silk Finish Lipstick.

This is the finished makeup look:



And that concludes this makeup look, as well as the little prom series I have been going on, on my blog.  I might do it again next year and include some hairstyles as well. Do let me know if that is something you would be interested in seeing.

Thank you so much for stopping by…until next time!

Purple Smokey Eye Prom Makeup Look

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted something and I apologize! I have been super busy with assignments. You might have also noticed that I did not put up a July Favorites post and that is because I will be combining my July and August favorites in one post. Today’s post will be a prom inspired makeup look, which for those of you who are past the prom stage can use it for a fancy outing or special event.  I love this look, because it is simple to do and it works very well with brown eyes.  Be sure to check out my previous post as well on my tips for Prom here  As always the first part will consist of the face makeup and the second part will cover the eye makeup.


  1. So I started off by priming my face with the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser.
  2. I then applied my concealer, I find that applying it before the foundation works better to cover up my blemishes and I used the Essence Stay Natural Concealer in the shade Soft Beige. I just apply this under my eyes, on the bridge of my nose, on my forehead and on any blemishes I have.
  3. I then applied my foundation and used the L’Oréal True Match Foundation in the shade Sand. I love this foundation, because it is very lightweight.  You also want to make sure not to use a foundation that has a SPF in it, because it usually creates flashback in photos.
  4. To set my foundation I used the Yardley Absolute Translucent Loose Powder.
  5. I then did my contour with the Absolute New York Pro Contour Palette and used the same palette to highlight my face.
  6. To finish off the look, I went in with the Jordana Blush Powder in the shade Rose Silk.


The Eye Makeup

To create this look, I used the SMOKY Palette, the ELF Little Black Book (Warm Edition) Palette and the Essence Quattro (Denim 4.0) Eye shadow Palette.

  • I started off by filling in my eyebrows with the Smudge Brow Pencil in the shade Light Brown.
  • I used this brown color from the ELF Palette as a base color and placed it all over my eyelid.
  • I then used this purple shade from the Essence Palette and placed this on the outer corner of my eyelids.

In the inner corner of my eyelid I used this shimmery silver color from the SMOKY Palette and focused it towards the center of my eyelid.

I then used the purple color from the Essence Palette and placed it under my lower lash line and the silver color from the SMOKY Palette towards the inner corner of my eye.

For mascara I used the Essence Lash Princess Mascara. I did not apply any false lashes, but that is totally optional, I think it would look great with this look as well.


For lips I used NYC Lipstick in the shade Petal and topped it off with the Essence XXXL Lip Gloss in the shade True Love and I  did not want to go too dark with the lips, since the eyes are already dramatic, but this is totally optional as well.


And this is the finished look:



But that is it for this post, if you do decide to try out this look feel free to tag me in your pictures on Instagram here

Until next time!
