PROM.

I always wish I could go back to my prom days hehe.. because they're all "failure" Hahaha!
Well anyways, people should learn from each other's mistakes right?
So i will list down the tips to make an almost perfect prom night...

1. Do not over prepare or expect things will be exactly want to want.. You will end up disappointed on prom night for sure.. xD

2. Practice your makeup a week before the prom night.. don't ever procrastinate on it, makeup your mind on what kind of look you wanna go for. If you know how to do your own makeup and if you are good at it, its better... because here's the thing when you get your makeup done on a typical salon... they tend to transform your face too much! LOl they shave your eyebrows much that will make you look "mean"/masungit.

And also they tend to put a lot of makeup (esp if the brands are cheap) and mostly the look they go for won't suit you... I notice makeup done by makeup artists from salons.. they tend to put wrong shade of foundation and concealer..sometimes the concealer looks so much lighter than the natural skintone which looks horrid in pictures especially in pictures with flash >.<>

3. Your gown, cut and colors matter!

>Don't go for gowns that look like you've just rent them.. You know how they look.. they have cheap looking glossy fabrics and way too colorful

>Avoid looking like a gift wrap.. you know those contrasted color combinations like pink and green, violet and yellow etc... they looks so overdone and cheap now..

>Do go for classic.. or a mix of classic and modern.

> Consider the venue... If the venue is super classy like a castle! You don't wanna miss out on wearing a ball gown hehehe! Well it depends on your taste though xD

>Hairstyle..Don't go for high maintenance hairstyle.. like crazy curly updo's.. they will look so messy by the end of the prom night..

My top PROM makeup looks!

Natural Look: If you have nice skin to begin with.. You can pull of this look so well! All you need is a flawless foundation and concealer.. natural, slightly bronzy and shimmery eyemakeup, thin eyeliner and a nicely natural looking false eyelashes for the eyemakeup. Healthy glow on cheeks, peach or pink and natural looking lips.

Red Lips: If you can pull off red lipstick well, this look is super glamorous! All you need is good foundation base and concealer, healthy looking cheeks. Minimal eye makeup, natural hues, thick or think eyeliner and killer false eyelashes! For the lips, look for a good shade of red that will match your skin.

Youthful Look: Other makeup looks that I like.. They're light and vibrant.. Very youthful and fun.



Gowns that I like.. I like the design with a touch of classic, intricate details yet simple and has a vintagey vibe, hehe..
