MOTD: Prom Makeup Mint Green Dress

 I love Stephanie's prom dress color, it is a light mint green.  I didn't want to do a heavy makeup style for this dress but instead I opted for something more light and spring like.  I wish the camera captured the pretty golden shimmery shadow around the eye and the glitter.  It looks so pretty in person.  MAC Creme Cup Lipstick is my favorite all around light pink lipstick as it looks great on everyone.

MOTD: Prom 2013 Makeup Inspiration

My prom was over 10 years ago (wow, really has it been that long?) I remember trying to think how I wanted my hair and makeup done but during that time there was only Seventeen and Teen magazine to look for inspiration.  Now all these teenagers have amazing sources for hair and makeup inspiration via the internet.  During the next couple of months (April-June) I will be posting a look to complement a dress that one of my followers have tagged on Instagram.  Thought this would be a good way for me to start doing daily MOTD'S again :)

Here are some of my past MOTD'S that would be great for this year's Prom Season

MOTD: Pink, Tan, White Prom Look 1

I've been getting a lot of requests for Prom looks since a lot of teenagers are anticipating their proms in a couple of weeks.  I remember my Prom so many years ago and this look would perfectly match the dress that I wore that night.  It was a pink 2 piece with silver rhinestones. Man, I miss those days getting all glammed up and going out with friends to enjoy the night.  My date was a childhood friend whom I've known since 3rd grade.  It was such a fun night! 

Anyways back to the makeup. 

For the look I used all MAC makeup since you can find counters and stores all over the place. 

-You may use any highlighter shade you prefer, for this look I used Brule. 

- MAC Passionate Eye Shadow (Crease). Best when applied with a blending brush such as the MAC #224 for a soft diffused crease. 

-MAC Ricepaper/MAC Bamboo Eye Shadows (inner and outer lid).  Take a flat brush and pat a mixture of this color just to the inside and outside of the lid, keep the center open for the next color. Blend the color with the pink that you previously blended in the crease.

-MAC Crystal Avalanche Eye Shadow with MAC Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder  (center of lid and lower eye)  By placing a lighter color in the center of the lid will make your eyes pop!  Also smudge this color on the bottom lash line to open up the eyes.

-Don't forget your lashes, any style would work well.  If you like you can also add a little bit of the shimmer powder in the inside corner of your eye like what I did for the picture.
