My Niece’s Prom Makeover – Pretty and Glowing Makeup!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog – I’m really excited for you all to read this post as it features my first makeover on someone other than myself haha! A couple of months ago my niece Bethany asked if I would do her makeup for her school prom, and the first thing I thought was along the lines of…. “You’re that age already?!?!”. I remember my school prom like it was just yesterday, so it feels crazy to me that Beth was planning her first ever prom.

Beth came over to my place the day before her prom, so she could look through my makeup collection and we could both choose which products to use to get the look she wanted. I wanted to trial a primer and foundation on her also, to make sure it worked for her skin so that her photos would come out perfect! If you want to know how I achieved Beth’s Prom Makeover look then keep reading!

Primer – I used two different primers for Beth’s skin – I started with Smashbox Photo Finish Primer on her T Zone and then went for Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer on her cheeks. I chose these to combat any oil in her T Zone but to make sure her cheeks were glowing through the foundation.

Foundation – We went for Lancome Teint Miracle Bare Skin Foundation. Beth didn’t need a high coverage foundation as she doesn’t really suffer from any redness, just the occasional blemish. This worked perfectly on her skin and looked very natural.

Concealer – For under the eyes I used Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch as this is a brightening concealer, and for the occasional blemish cover up I used Mac’s Pro Longwear Concealer.

Powder – I used my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte powder on Beth’s T Zone, applying minimal powder on the cheeks as we want the cheeks to glow.

Blush – Beth absolutely loved the Benefit Sugarbomb blush as it had a beautiful sheen to it, so I applied a little pop of this onto her cheeks.

Highlighter – I chose The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter and applied this to the tops of her cheekbones. This product looked absolutely stunning on her.

Bronzer – As an overall bronzer I applied the Lord and Berry Bronzer in Sienna. I then took Benefit Hula and contoured Beth’s cheeks slightly. I wanted this to be as subtle and natural as possible.

Eyebrows – I used Beth’s regular eyebrow product, Benefit Browzings in Medium. Beth has gorgeous brows anyway, so I didn’t have to do much to them!

Eyes – I delved into my Mac Palette for Beth’s look as I wanted to use the best quality eyeshadows I had. I started with Petina which I applied all over the lid, in the crease and underneath the eye. I then applied All That Glitters in the middle portion of the lid to create a really reflective effect which looked stunning. I then applied Woodwinked into the Outer V area to create a bit of depth. Beth didn’t apply a mascara until just before the event, so no mascara was worn in these pictures.

Lips – I left Beth to choose which lipstick she loved out of my Mac lipsticks, and she went for one of my all time favourites, Hot Gossip. This is a beautiful shimmery Rose Pink.

Here is the finished look!
