Prom makeup on a budget!

Prom makeup on a budget

So your prom is this month? Still adding last minute touches to the dress and deciding on hair and makeup, step back and breathe. I could still remember the weeks leading up to my prom, more than 15 years ago (yikes). I actually went to a tanning bed (won’t be doing that again), had acrylic nails and set up my hair appointment. The latter was a disaster! I hated my hair, my hair was short and dyed black (from having been a hair model a couple months earlier) there wasn’t much I could do to my hair. But, the hairdresser was able to do an up-do that looked like a basket on my head…not a good look! Atleast my makeup would look great because I knew makeup!
And since you’re already spending a small fortune save on makeup as there are great budget friendly options.

Mascara:
my favourites include-Rimmel Sexy Curves, Cover Girl Lash Blast &/or Annabelle Twist Push-Up Mascara
Brows:
Maybelline Define-a-Brow, hands down favourite affordable eye pencil 
tip-for pictures do pencil your brows in lightly, makes a difference in pictures
Bronzers:
Annabelle Perfect Bronze or Physician’s Formula Bronzers are great options
Blush:
lots of affordable options, my faves-NYX blushes, Physician’s Formula blushes
Lips:
NYX lipglosses, Annabelle Twist-Up lipstick pencils or Covergirl lipbalm pencils are great!
Face:
BB Creams-embrace your youthful skin (maybe you don’t realize it now) keep your base natural. Cover Girl BB cream is awesome as is Marcelle BB Cream
Eyeshadows:
long lasting Maybelline Colour 24 hr Tattoo, splurge & get the Urban Decay Naked Palette and MAC is always a good bet for quality and shades!

    Sorry to hear about your basket, I mean your hair :D.<br />But on a serious note, whether I&#39;m on a budget or not, I usually make sure that I&#39;ve been using certain makeup or skincare for awhile, and not trying or experimenting new ones right before a big event. You never know if one of them is going to react badly to your skin. I think this doesn&#39;t only apply to less expensive

    I love using BB creams. I agree with you that natural is better. I have been wanting to try the new Maybelline Colour 24 hr Tattoo eyeshadow but I wasn&#39;t sure about the results I would get. Thanks for the tips. I love your blog and all your advice. :)
