Prom is always exciting. Well, I’ve only been to one (yep, mine) but I get what the fuss is about. Picking your dress, choosing hair styles, trial makeup, asking your crush to prom, having an awesome night with your girlfriends — it’s a girl thing. These days, the closest I get to being involved in proms is doing makeup.
This is my cousin, Alex. I’ve seen her grow up… from being the most kulit baby to the brilliant and beautiful young lady she is now. I couldn’t believe I was making her up for PROM already!
Alex is a simple girl but also a lot of fun. She has really fair skin with cute and light little freckles sprinkled on her face. I did not want to cover those up at all so I just gave her a thin layer of foundation. I didn’t want her to look over the top because it wouldn’t go with her personality at all. I wanted to keep the look young, natural, and fresh, with just the tiniest twist.
On her lips, I wanted a juicy pastel peach. I used YSL Rouge Pur in 144 Silky Apricot. On her cheeks, I swiped on a peachy shade as well — Karma (My ultimate favorite blush) from Ulta.
I kept her eyes natural by applying shades from Urban Decay’s Book of Shadows IV. (Skimp, Baked, Midnight Cowgirl) To add that youthful twist, I rimmed her lower lash line with a beautiful deep green (Bender) from the same palette. On a side note, people keep asking me if I sell the Naked Palette (which I don’t) but I just feel that they’re so caught in hype of it all. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s amazing and have one myself but people are quick to disregard other stellar palettes such as this. If you count the number of neutral/naked shades in here, you’ll get 12. And then you get a BONUS of FOUR gorgeous colors too! To me this is just more versatile. The best Book of Shadows Urban Decay has come up with even if the packaging isn’t nearly as great as the BoS III: UD <3 NYC.
