Prom Preparations 001

Prom is officially less than a month away, and preparations are well and truly under way. My dress and shoes are sorted - hooray! But I'm yet to sort anything else out. At the moment I'm planning on doing my own makeup, so I thought it was time I had a little practice.

I'm currently debating between a goldey-brown eye and a good ol' dark grey smokey eye. I've recently rediscovered my Maybelline Color Tattoo, in On and on Bronze, and I really like it. It's such a lovely base shade - so I think it's definitely going to be a staple in my prom makeup bag!

Fake eyelashes... I've never tried them, but I think they'll be the perfect addition to the eye look. So if you have any recommendations or tips and tricks for me, that'd be fab!



  1. Your eyes look gorgeous with that eye make up! Can't wait for more prom posts :) x

  2. I've found some great false lashes without breaking the bank at all! The ones from Collection in Boots. Also if you want to spend a little more there's no7 in the shape 50! They're my all time fave! X


  3. You eye makeup looks gorgeous, I recently re discovered my colour tattoo in on and on bronze as well. I wear it everyday and my guess is it will be the perfect eye base for prom as that stuff literally does not budge off the eyes! :)

  4. This eye makeup looks gorgeous on you, you seem well prepared for prom! I remember figuring out my makeup an hour before heading out the door. Have fun xx

  5. Ahh I miss my prom, a year ago next week! Love that eye make up on you, it's gorgeous. Eyelashes wise I would definitely recommend some of the Katy Perry lashes from Eylure, or individual lashes make it easier to get the kind of look you want. Hope you have a great time x

  7. This is such a gorgeous look! Good luck with the falsies, I've tried applying some once and it was such a fail, I've never bothered since..
