A Look Back: Prom

For many people prom is coming up so I though why not do a post on what I wore? My prom was last May so I know my dress can no longer be bought but hopefully this post can help people with their makeup, hair and style of dress!


Ignore the horrible eyebrows, this is before I grew them out ha ha! I done my makeup myself on the day, expect from my eyelashes which were semi permanent and were meant to last two weeks (try two days!). For my eye makeup I used my Sleek Storm Palette and created a neutral smokey eye. I also tried to create very glowy skin on top of my fake tan so I used High Beam highlighter from Benefit. I also used lots of bronzer to contour! I didn't have my lipstick on in this photo but I wore Darling by Gosh.


I went to a local hairdressers to get my hair done and all I told them was that I wanted something to the side. I added in some extensions also as my hair at the time was very short and thin. I think she did a good job, it was very unique!


When looking for a dress I knew I wanting something neutral with lace on the top. As I couldn't find this I came to a compromise with pink/red as I loved the lace on this dress so much. It was from Oasis, which is a great place to shop for dresses! I've also seen loads of nice ones on Missguided recently. My necklace was something like £2 from Ebay and was just a thin gold collar one. For my shoes I went with nude heels that I already owned (I totally spent my prom shoes money on other shoes) I match this with a nude over sized clutch from New Look. My boyfriend wore a tie to match my dress colour, this was difficult as it was hard to tell if my dress was pink or red!




Is your prom coming up? If not what did you wear?
