DIY Prom Makeup

Prom was a really great time. One of my favorite things was the preparation leading up to the prom. It's the closest thing to planning a wedding that you will do in your life prior to graduating high school. I remember for months leading up to it my mom and I would go out every weekend looking for the dress, shoes, and jewelry. We would look at different hairstyles and I would pore over magazines and Kevyn Aucoin makeup books testing out different makeup looks for The Big Day.

What great fun!

The one thing I was absolutely certain of was that I would do my own makeup. I still think when/if I get married I will probably do my own makeup then, as well. There's just something about trusting your own artistry and knowing what the end result will be that really appeals to me.

If you're looking to do your own prom makeup, I have created a look that gives you not one, but TWO different options. Here's a peek at what colors I'll be working with:
