I know that’s a sh*t ton of makeup… but it’s for prom, right? ;)
I need to take a moment to rave about Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadow in Solstice. It’s a super sparkly duochrome shade, with a brownish red undertone and a green sparkly shift. IT’S SO EFFIN’ PRETTY. It transforms this otherwise muted, pretty look into something eye-catching without being too loud.
I took inspiration for this look from Emily of emilyloke.com. In fact, her FOTD using Solstice is what spurred me to purchase it during the VIB sale. My pictures don’t pick up the sparkles nearly as well as hers do, so definitely check out her post!
Disclaimer: I did not look nearly this polished for my own proms. There were one or two years I didn’t wear a stitch of makeup, and maybe my senior year I wore a shimmery white eyeshadow (yep) and a tinted lip gloss? I was a late bloomer, makeup-wise.
If I were to go to a prom now with this look, I would add a winged liner and some falsies to the eyes. Of course, it would also depend on what color my dress would be. I’m so out of touch with formal wear that I have no idea what this hypothetical dress would look like.
What did you wear to prom? Did you do your own makeup or go to a counter? What would you wear to prom now?
