Prom Tutorial #4: Neutrals


Not everyone likes a ton of glitter on their face for special occasions. This is a very similar look to what I actually wore for my first prom (although I did amp things up a touch).

I kept things very natural for this look, and it is probably my favourite so far.


For the base I used the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation with a soft buffing brush to give a satin-like airbrushed finish to the skin. Under my eyes I used the matching concealer, blending it out with the Eco Tools Makeup Sponge.

Everything was set using the New Look Ultra HD Powder.

For bronzer I took the Bare Minerals Ready Warmth on a powder brush, and buffed this out quite thinly in a figure of three on both sides of my face. To add some colour back to my cheeks I dusted a small amount of Urban Decay’s Afterhour Blush in Bang onto my cheek bones and across the apples of my cheeks. To highlight, I took the pink highlighter from the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette and dusted this quite generously above the blush on the highpoints of my cheeks.


Since I recently had my brows tinted and shaped, I just brushed a small amount of the Lancome Sourcil Styler to keep them in shape.

On my eyes I took the fawn brown shade from the Carli Bybel palette and ran this through the crease of my eyes. Over this I immediately applied the paler plum shade. On my outer eye I blended out the darkest plum shade, keeping things quite soft. In the inner part of the lid, I used the shimmery rose shade on the top row, buffing out the edges. I then used the plum shades along the lower lash line.

In the inner corner I placed a tiny amount of the same highlighter used on my cheeks. I then finished off the eyes with a few coats of the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.


For lipstick I first took the Lancome Matte Juicy Shaker in Beige Vintage and applied this as a base. Over the top, I added the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Rebel.

Which has been your favourite of my prom looks so far?

Have a lovely day guys, and take care.
