Instructions
1. To create a good base for your makeup, rub the IT Cosmetics Hydrating Moisturizer into your entire face. On top of this, apply the Benefit Pearl Primer to your T zone and chin.
2. Using a foundation brush, apply the MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix foundation to your skin. Make sure you have a full and even coverage by blending the product into your creases with your brush.
3. Paint on the Colourpop No Filter Matte Concealer in both shades Light 10 and Medium 22 under your eyes in short strokes. Apply these strokes to your Cupid's bow, chin, and on your forehead. Blend the product into your skin with a concealer brush in circular motions.
4. Gently tap the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder in shade Translucent under your eyes with a fluffy powder brush. This will set your concealer and reduce the appearance of creases.
5. Brush the Benefit Cosmetics Brow Pencil onto your eyebrows. Follow your brows' natural shape to fill in any gaps where there are no hairs/light hairs. Stroke the product in upward motions to define your arch.
6. Contour your cheeks by blending your MAC Cosmetics Mineralize powder in shade Give Me Sun beneath your cheekbones to form depth and structure in your face. Do so by blending with your contour brush in long strokes along your cheeks.
7. Take a clean contour brush and blend the shade Honest from the PUR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Blush Book into your cheeks.
8. To create a natural eye, use shade Twig from the Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Sultry Eyeshadow Palette and blend it into your crease with a fluffy eyeshadow brush.
9. To add shimmer, pat the Pearl shade from the ABH palette into your eyelid, making sure the two shades on your eye are well blended.
10. Smooth the L'Oreal Mascara onto your lashes using the wand provided.
11. Lastly, to complete your prom look, spread the L'Oreal Nude Lipstick in shade Power Petal onto your lips. Once finished, your face will be ready for every close-up photo as you party at prom.
