Lady in Red…

It has been long overdue, but with everything coming to an end, I finally found time to post my last and final prom look of the year! My last prom ever was an absolute blast, and I felt like a complete glamour girl in all red with a pop of rouge on the lips! Below are some fabulous pictures credit to my lovely sister Ashley!

My dress was by Jovani, jewelry was purchased at Icing, and shoes are from DSW! Hair and makeup was inspired by the beautiful Carli Bybel and is a very old Hollywood glam look. It was my last prom and knew I had to go all out for it! Feeling beautiful and glamorous on such a special night is something every girl deserves!

More posts will be up this week! I promise!

My dress is by Tony Bowls; Jewelry is a mix between Icing and Bobbles and Lace; Hair and makeup done by Liz Tina ay Aqua Salon; Nails from Miniluxe.

I went all out and recommend doing the same for prom! It really is once in a lifetime when you can dress up and have the glitz and the glam! I know I felt like a glamour girl! I’d really love to see all of your prom choices, and I am sure you will all look lovely! Take the time and make it right!

Met Gala 2014

The Met Gala was last night, and I could not help but obsess over some of the gorgeous dresses of the night. I do have to say, this year was a great year for fashion at the Met Gala! Below are some of my favorite styles of the night!

Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrating Charles James: Beyond Fashion, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, America - 05 May 2014 images Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrating Charles James: Beyond Fashion, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, America - 05 May 2014 2014 Anna Wintour Costume Center Gala Benefit wpid-kendall-jenner-met-ball-2014-05_1-700x927 Costume Institute Gala Benefit celebrating Charles James: Beyond Fashion, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, America - 05 May 2014 72b22ac1-3780-4567-b488-4b1cc280cf36-343x480

Beginning from the top (left to right), Hailee Steinfeld shined in this Prabal Gurung gown. I personally adore the cut and fit! It makes her look very mature. Blake Lively took a very different approach in this beautiful blush gown, with a hint of sparkle. She was wearing Gucci! Georgia May Jagger took a sexy approach in Mugler by David Koma. She showed the perfect amount of skin in this classic black dress. Emma Stone went pretty in pink in her Thakoon pink ensemble, which appears to be two separate pieces. Either way the color and cut was perfection on the gorgeous red head! The Kardashian/Jenner sisters both shined this year! Kendall Jenner was there representing Topshop with her gorgeous pale pink silk mermaid dress, while Kim made improvements from last year in her Lanvin gown. The color is gorgeous on Kim, and definitely adds a classic touch! She is on the right track! Finally, Sarah Jessica Parker can do no wrong! She sported a lovely Oscar de la Renta gown, with the name sewn on the bottom. She is a fashion icon and can do no wrong at the Met Gala. She looked absolutely stunning!

These gowns and ladies were absolutely lovely! I cannot wait to see next years batch of gowns! Hope this also gave some inspiration for prom season! Until next time!

2014 Prom NECESSITIES!

Prom is just around the corner for many of you pretty ladies, and it is key that you put your best foot forward and prepare for the amazing day! The dress is obviously your duty, but I am here to give you tips and tricks for beauty and hair for the big day! Whether you are doing it yourself or getting it done, these will come in handy for prom or any other formal occasion!

Makeup:

Makeup is key for prom! If you want to self tan, please be my guest and do so, but just know that that is not a replacement for your makeup. Tip number one if you self tan: do not self tan your face! The skin on your face tends to be very sensitive, and this could cause breakouts and just look too unnatural. That is where foundation comes in! Everyone should consider wearing some sort of coverage for prom! Whether it’s a foundation or CC/BB cream, the coverage will give you a flawless appearance and help against any oil or shine! (And if you are really bold, try contouring; it will look amazing in photos!)

Eye makeup is a no brainer, but many don’t even bother thinking about doing lashes! False lashes can look very beautiful and add a nice touch to a gorgeous look! I recommend cutting the falsies to the natural shape of your eye or just placing them at the outer corners! This creates a more natural and long lash look, without being overwhelming or heavy on the eye!

Don’t forget to also choose a beautiful lip color! Whether it’s sheer or bold, try to invest in something that will really make your look pop, and that you could wear again!

**For short dress gals: Sally Hanson has a spray on leg makeup made to help cover up any bruising or scars on your legs! Just make sure you rub it in very well and take time to let it dry! DON’T GET IT ON YOUR DRESS!

Hair:

Hair is also a very crucial part to any prom look! To make it last all day, make sure to use a great hairspray! My go to is the Loreal Elnett! This helps keep my curls in all day, leaving them soft and touchable! Also don’t be afraid to accessorize with your hair! Hair clips and pins are a perfect way to add a little sparkle without going over board!

I hope this helped all of you prom goers this season! My previous beauty and favorites post listed a number of products I use and love, if you’d like to try them! Have an amazing 2014 prom! I know you all will look beautiful.

*Below are some of my favorite prom makeup and hair looks! (Casey Holmes and Nicole Guerriero are the main beauties below! Check them out on Youtube!)

**P.S. If you can’t tell, I am a lover of leaving the hair down for prom! Looks very glamorous!
