It feels like a lifetime ago since I was getting ready to go to prom. I remember the excitement of getting ready, going to the school and seeing everyone all dressed up in their ball gowns, suits and kilts. I loved prom and would go back to relive it in a second. We had the lovely model Storm back in the studio recently and as I’m doing Storm’s prom makeup we all thought it would be fun to film her trial.
Storm had sent us some references for her makeup which is always a great idea when you are having your makeup done for a special occasion. Makeup can be quite a personal thing and often your client has something specific that they would like.
We decided to go for flawless glowing skin with a subtle highlight and contour (no blush). Diffused blown out smokey eyes and a nude lip.
I really love that style of makeup, a strong look without being too heavy, very sultry and sophisticated which suits Storm perfectly.
Storm has beautiful blue eyes so we went for a neutral palette of soft browns and taupes, colours what are trending but that also suit most people.
They key to a really diffused smokey eye is blending. I normally use one brush to apply the shadow and a clean fluffy brush to blend it out. I normally always reach for my MAC 217 brush.
