Prom Hair, Makeup and Nails.

I am so excited to tell you that I am officially a high school graduate! I graduated last night and will be going to college to study communications (I hope to work in public relations in the fashion business) in September.

Graduation Style

Last week was my senior prom. I wanted to show you my nails, hair and the makeup I wore, because it really lasted through a long night of dancing the night away.

My prom day started by getting a manicure. I wanted to go natural because my dress was bright red. I chose MAC Thimbleweed from the Proenza Schouler collection. It is a pale nude and gave my nails just enough color and lots of shine.

Natural Nails

My Mom did my makeup and she helped me to chose the best long-lasting products, but I insisted on a lot of my Urban Decay favorites a few things like CoverGirl's Bombshell Mascara, it's the only one I will use, and Urban Decay's Perversion Ink for Eyes. I wanted to look bronzey and natural with a little bit of a bronzey smokey eye. I wanted my lips natural with Urban Decay's Naked lipgloss too. I don't like a lot of makeup on my eyes because my eyes and lashes are very dark already.

After my makeup was done, I went to the salon, where Paul did my hair. I wanted some pulled back and to wear some down. I have a lot of hair and it is naturally very wavy and almost curly. I showed Paul a few pictures, but really just let him do what he wanted in the back and then had him do some loose waves on the bottom.

Here is the final look at my prom makeup. It came out how I envisioned it.

Prom Makeup Look

Prom was great! My best advice to those going to prom is to use long-lasting makeup and a good makeup primer. The makeup primer my Mom used on me from Hourglass worked really well because my makeup looked just good at the end of the night as I did when I left for the prom.

Congratulations!!! You looks beautiful.
Gorgeous look. I love your hair and makeup is very pretty. I love Urban Decay too and that primer potion locks in eye makeup totally all day and night.
