This was a makeup trial that I did at my mothers salon for a prom! On her prom day we stuck with everything except for the lip! Decided on something with a little more pop! Sorry, don't have pics from the actual prom night, I had about 6 girls back to back that day... didn't have time for pics! I can assure you, she was stunning from her makeup to her hair to her gorgeous dress!
“There's a big world out there. Bigger than prom, bigger than high school, & it won't matter if you were the prom queen or the quarterback of the football team or the biggest nerd. Find out who you are & try not to be afraid of it.”

♥ This bride wanted to look simple yet elegant. On an average day, you'd never catch her with any makeup on! I was uber excited when she allowed the pop of color on her lips, which was a deep cherry red from Hourglass called ICON, absolutely stunning! I used my Temptu Airbrush System for a flawless natural finish on her face, neck and decollete. On her eyes I worked with my Yves Saint Laurent Pure Chromatics palette which is water-activated, that's how I accomplished that intense metallic finish for her gold liner. Shaped her brows with my Anastasia Brow Wiz in Brunette. Last minute, I talked her into false lashes ☺ by Makeup Forever ♥
