Get Ready With Me (Prom Edition)

Hey Everyone!

So as I promised today will be my get ready with me for prom post! I had so much fun at prom and really enjoyed getting all dressed up and ready to go! So I thought I would share my prom make up and hair look as well as other little bits and pieces I used to help me get prom-perfect!

Morning Routine

The first thing I did in the morning was grab myself some cereal (breakfast is so important, especially on a busy day) and after that I jumped in the shower.  I had already washed my hair the night before because I was getting my hair up for prom and we all know that updo's last better with second day hair.  So I just washed using one of my shower favourites, Lush's shower jelly in Sweetie pie (you can win it here).  After I came out the shower I moisturised my body with the Garnier Intensive 7 day Hydration Lotion for Normal Skin.  I then completed my daily skin care routine which can be found here if your interested in looking at it in more detail.  After all this was done, I had plenty time before I had to start doing my make up so I relaxed and watched one of my favourite movies.  Have you guys seen White Chicks? I think its just one of the most hilarious movies ever!

Make Up Routine


The first thing I done before I even applied any make up was moisturise my skin again with the Simple Light moisturiser.  After I let this set in for a couple of minutes, I applied 3 different primers.  I know, it was maybe slightly extreme, but I wanted to make sure my make up stayed on all night.  I applied Benefits Porefessional on my T-zone, E.L.F Mineral Infused Face Primer to my cheeks and Smashbox Photo Finish Primer on top all over.  Next I applied No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush.  After this I just applied Rimmel London's Stay Matte Transparent Powder.  For my blush, I applied Benefits Hervanna to the apples of my cheeks and blended it upwards along my cheekbone.  Hervanna is my favourite blush ever and I 100% recommend it to every single one of you.  As a highlight I used MAC's Pearlmatte Face Powder in the shade 'In For A Treat' and applied it across my cheekbones, browbones, the bridge of my nose and my cupids bow.  Finally I used my Bourjois Bronzing Powder in shade 51 for contouring and bronzing my skin.  I definitely recommend using bronzer if you are getting lots of pictures taken because without it, you may look washed out in pictures.


To start with I primed my eyes and undereyes with the Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer.  Then I applied My Garnier Anti Dark Circles Eye Roll On under my eyes to brighten my eyes up.  I also used Benefit Eye bright in my inner corner and my brow bone to highlight and brighten my eyes.  The only eyeshadows I used for this make up look came from my Naked Basics Palette.  I applied Venus all over my lid, then applied Walk Of Shame to the outer 3/4 of my lid using a MAC 242 brush.  I then applied Faint to my crease with my MAC 217 brush and blended it out.  For eyeliner I used my Rimmel London Exaggerate Liquid Eye liner to create a slight winged eye look.  After this, I applied my favourite false eyelashes, Eyelure Naturalites Super Full and coated them with a layer of Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara.  I filled in my eyebrows using Browzings from Benefit in my Smokin Eyes kit.  


For lips, I started off by exfoliating my lips with Lush Lip Exfoliator in Bubblegum.  Then I applied my MAC tendertone in Tread Gently.  I waited a couple of minutes for that to sink in and then applied a MAC cremesheen lipstick in Hot Gossip. And that was my make up look completed!


So for my hair, I had my hairdresser come to my house to style my hair for prom.  My hair was inspired by this picture of Vanessa Hudgens;

My hair was inspired by this gorgeous look.

And this was the outcome;


I do realise this blog post has been really long but I knew a few of you on twitter were interested in this post so I thought I may as well go all out.  I had such a blast at prom so I thought I'd share a couple of photos from the night with you guys! I hope you enjoyed this post and I will speak to you all soon.
