PROM WAS A WHIRLWIND

I feel like I'm very late on doing this post but ah well.
Yes! A few weeks ago I had my high school prom for Year 11 (or Grade 10 if you're in America)  and thought I would follow the trend and do a little 'get ready with me' for it (whoop whoop). Honestly I was dreadingggg prom for so long and was just NOT in the mood to go (for a whole heap of reasons) but once I was all dressed up and ready to go I felt so much better and had such an amazing time with my friends and year group. So cheers for that everyone. Yes, it was a little bit cringe and yes, it was just generally very weird to see everyone so dressed up - but I still had such a lovely time so here is my Prom Get Ready With Me for 2019 *fanfare*




SKINCARE
((THIS IS SUCH AN ATTRACTIVE PICTURE LIKE WOW))
Obviously for prom you want to look your best and that starts with your skin, I always like to think of it as working from the base upwards - the base being your skin. The day before prom I tried a charcoal sheet mask to sort out any spots or blemishes on my skin, I don't feel like sheet masks give the best results but they are superrr relaxing. The night before I also did a full skincare routine including a good cleanse, a scrub and some moisturiser. The day of prom I just went for a light cleanse and a light moisturiser, you don't want to go for anything too brutal on the day (i.e. a face mask or a scrub) as this will just bring out the redness in your skin.
Also I cut my leg shaving and it was a whole drama so I'm smart.



NAILS
Honestly I think I was one of the only people to not get their nails professionally done but instead chose to paint them at home with some of my favourite gold nail polishes. I wanted my nails to pair in nicely with the rest of my gold accessories so went for a simple gold top coat and the odd glitter nail.


MAKEUP
As my dress was red and my accessories gold I wanted to go for a bronzed and golden makeup look to tie it all together. Occasions like prom are some of the only times you get to go all out on your makeup with full-coverage everything so I used all of my favourite full-coverage base products and a really tacky primer to ensure my makeup stayed on all night. Golden highlighters, rose-gold blushes and a sunny bronzer brought my look together to create something summery and sunkissed.




HAIR
I prefer my hair to be up and decided to braid it all the way around in a crown braid. At prom I saw so many amazing hair styles and so many different varieties of braids. And for the record there was like two pins in my hair (so proud.)


TA-DAAA
Prom was a bit of a mess but I also really enjoyed it and everyone looked so amazing! This was my final look for prom and I felt so special the entire day, also we went in a Tesla so I also felt hella boujee.
My dress was from Chi Chi London, shoes from TopShop and my earrings and and bag from New Look.

Annnd that's it, my prom get ready with me for 2019. Obviously my look wasn't as clean or polished as everyone else who has invested in getting their nails, hair or lashes done professionally, but I still loved getting ready. Did you go to prom this year - how did it go? What's your favourite makeup look for the summer time? x

  9. You look beautiful! I didn’t go to my prom because it was expensive and I hated high school. I didn’t want to pay $100+ to spend more time with my classmates. I’m glad you had fun!
