Brown Smokey Prom Makeup

Hi everyone its the third look into my prom series, and I did struggle with a name to call it as its not your typical prom look. Smokey eyes and big nude lips are so popular so I thought I would use them in a prom appropriate makeup look. You can play around with the colours, ive chosen browns for my smokey eye as its a less harsh than black shades and they go with the lip colour nicely. I hope you like it. 

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
MAC Prolongwear concealer
MAC Prep and Prime Highlighter in Light Boost
Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder
Urban Decay Concealer Pencil in M16
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Lover
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

I applied the foundation all over the face with a beauty blender then concealed the under eyes with the MAC ProLongwear concealer. I used the prep and prime pen to hightlight the under eyes, forehead, bridge of the nose and chin. I then used the loose powder around the under eyes only with the to set the concealer before it creased. I then contoured my cheeks and around the forehead with the concealer pencil and used a precise brush to blend it out. I used my bronzer over the contour and up more onto the cheeks to ad warmth. I then finished with blusher and highlighter. 

Illamsaqua Brow Cake in Thunder
Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Get in Brunette

Illamasqua Eyeshadows in Servant and Feint
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Barry M Dazzle Dust in 53
Maybelline Black Gel Liner
MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy
Benefit They're Real Mascara
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
The Vintage Cosmetics Company False Lashes in Nancy

I started by using the brow cake powder through my brows just to define the shape and darken them a little, then set them with the brow gel. For the eyes I primed them with the concealer to start. I then used Servant eye shadow by Illamsqua all through the crease with a big fluffy brush, then the bronzer over the top however keeping it more in the crease. I used a small brush to apply the dazzle dust all over the eyelid only building it up gradually. I then used the illamasqua eye shadow in Feint right into the crease to blend out the loose pigment. I used the gel liner to line the top of the eye and ended it in a large wing. I used the mac eye kohl n teddy to like the lower lash line and used the brush I used to apply the dazzle dust to blend it out. I applied a couple of coats of mascara to the top and bottom lashes and lined the water line with the NYX Jumbo eye pencil. To finish I applied my false lashes.

Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel
MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

I lined the lips with the pencil and filled in the outer corners to make them appear fuller. I used the lipstick all over the lips then used a tiny bit of the milk pencil to the centre of the lips and rubbed them together to blend. This creates the illusion of bigger fuller lips.

So that is my third prom look for you, I hope you are enjoying them so far.
