Q&A: Prom look

Q::Hii amanda, my prom is in a month so i wanted to practice so makeup dress is greenish/yellowish/goldish. So i was wondering if you could make a look for this colours? x Thank You and if you can, can you post some nice prom hairstyles?

As I thought about what I was going to do, I thought why not go the neutral route but with a little umph with a smoked out brown liner. I was going to do a look with the colors on your dress but I don't think you want to be so matchy matchy. I think the best thing is to have a nice glowy bronzed face that just brings out the dress.

A picture of some of the important products, I didn't take a picture of all of the products I used.
Clean and clear Advantage moisturizer
Smashbox light primer
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation NC40
MAC Matte (under eyes)
Benefit Erase Paste Medium
MAC Studip Sculpt Concealer NW25
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural/ Medium dark
Ben Nye Neutral set powder/ under the eyes and the t-zone
Too Faced Matte Soleil Bronzer/ Contoured cheeks and warmed up the face
MAC Peaches blush
Lancome nutmeg or Rice paper or any champagne shimmer on lid
Lancome Lezard or dark brown smoked out liner making it in to a wedge on outer part of lid
Lancome honeymoon as highlight or any subtle white shimmer
MAC engraved liner on tightline and water line
Ardell 109 lashes or you can go alittle bit more dramatic
MAC Shy girl

As you already know you can google prom hairstyles (thats what I did) but I picked out the ones I liked the most. I didn't know how long your hair was so Ichose ones with different hair lengths. I think if your showing a lot of neck and cleavage then hair down. If your dress is showing a little then hair up. Just my opinion though. My hairstyle I had was all over loose curls with side bangs straight and then teased at the crown. The hairstyle I did for my friend I teased around her crown first then did loose curls and brought all her hair to one side and pinned the back so it would stay. Click the Prom label to see it.
Hope you have a lovely prom experience =)
