Yesterday was prom for my school, and it was so much fun! After three hours of preparation I was ready, here’s how i prepared :]
Hair: My hair took me an hour to do! phew!
I used TIGI Bed Head Superstar Volumizing Shampoo and the matching conditioner to strengthen my hair (it worked really well, i could feel the thickness :] )After showering i applied Herbal Essences- Shimery Nights to my hair while still wet to add pretty sparkles in it, and blow dried it next. I then used a hair straightener and then the fun part begain- TEASING! yay! I put the upper layer of my hair in a pony tail and teased to the extreme my middle layer of hair in the back. I used TIGI Bed Head Hard Head Hairspray to hold the teased amounts of hair, and then released the top layer and sprayed a small amount to hold, and it worked amazingly! My hair held all through the night and even until the next day! I had to shorten my bangs a bit with my razor (i cut my own hair) and then i was all done! ^_^ i was very happy with how it turned out.
Makeup: I love messing around with makeup so this was tons of fun! First i used a liquid foundation; Clinique stay-true makeup oil-free formula. I highly recommend it. It blended in with my skin perfectly and covered almost all of the flaws. I followed up with a Clinique blush that i got in a free sample kit. i applied the blush just slightly above my cheekbones. Eyes were next. i started with eyeliner, which was again, Clinique. It was creme eyeliner and lasted the night without smearing horribly. i applied to the inside of my eyelids on both the top and bottom lids, just slightly brushing above my bottom lashes, and applying to the corners. I then used white eyeshadow as a base on both of my lids and smeared a small amount under my lower lashes. On my eyelids I used an auburn brown over the white, covering about 3/4s of my lid. i used black eyeshadow just above my upper lashes, drawing a line to the corner and applying some to the corner as well. Mascara time :], i used Define A Lash waterproof Mascara by Maybelline. I love this mascara. The only bad part about it was that it smeared a bit later on in the night, but it did last me a long time without smearing so it was good enough for me. Finally, i used a two-step lip gloss from covergirl that was a light pink color. It worked really well and didn’t rub off even after lots of kisses, food, and water!
Clothing and Etc: I got my dress from Cache, and my shoes (which were white heels) from DSW. I got nude thigh-highs from kroger at the last minute haha and used some dangley silver earings that i’ve had forever, though i believe they’re from Claires. I matched my dress with a silver clutch to also match my boyfriend’s tuxedo (which he looked amazing in!), and wore a necklace that he gave me. After spraying on some perfume i was ready to go :]
So once i was all ready.. My boyfriend, Laurence, picked me up looking extremely handsome in his tux! We went over to his house and took pictures, then drove over to our friend’s house where we switched vehicles to a van, that was quickly transformed into a Prom-mobile after roars of protest to the writing of “PROM ’09” was drawn in pink letters across the windows. We rode the prom-mobile to dinner and then to a cute park downtown where we spent a whole ten minutes before hopping back into the van and riding to prom. The dj was a bit weak in the beginning, playing strange, half-slow half-fast songs that no one had heard before. However, after awhile the songs got much better, as Flo Rida, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and, of course, Baby got back were played. Overall, it was an amazing night.
