Prom makeup tutorial; smokey, cat eye

Hey lovelies,

I thought it’d be a good idea to post a prom makeup tutorial since that time of year is coming right around the corner! This is prom look 1 of 2, I will be posting another tutorial next Monday that is completely opposite of this look just to jazz things up! 🙂 I hope you all enjoy!

This looks includes a smokey cat eye, strongly contoured cheeks, and a nice nude lip.

This is my eye completely makeup-free so you can look back and see how much is done!

2. Next I use the same brush to apply a bronzer in the shade Sunkiss by Glominerals right on top of Silky Caramel. Yes, I use a bronzer as an eyeshadow, but, hey! It does the job! Applying these neutral matte colors before the darker colors gives the look more depth and makes things easier to blend out. Also, I switched eyes, because my right eyebrow drives me nuts…


3. Then I take the color Tease from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette with the same brush. I focus the product in the crease, but I also blend it to cover all over my lid.prom pic 4 cropped

4. I’m going to be honest, Tease didn’t do it for me, so I applied yet ANOTHER COLOR in my crease with, again, the same brush. This time I use the darkest color in the Maybelline New York quad in Copper Chic.

5. Now I take the color Blackout from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. I put this color in the outer v of my eye. I blend this out carefully, with my EcoTools brush,  so there are no harsh lines. I also put this color close to my lash line, almost using it as an eyeliner.



6. Finally I go in with a shimmer eyeshadow! I’m using a Luminous Shadow by Victoria’s Secret in Go Platinum. I put this color in the very middle of my eye with the applicator that comes with the shadow. Then, I focus on blending the product to the outer part of my eye, with a really small no name brush. I keep the inner part free for the highlight.

7. Now I’m going to highlight my eye with the lightest shade in the Maybelline New York palette. I placed this color on my brow bone and the inner corner of my eye. Again, I use a really small no name brush. I’m going to invest in a real highlighting brush. I seriously have no idea where this brush came from.

8. Now that we’re done with the eyeshadow portion of this look, I use the Maybelline Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner in Blackest Black to achieve the cat eye look.

  • First, I line my upper lash line with a thin line. prom pic 10 cropped
  • To achieve the outer wing, I place the wand at the outer corner of my eye and draw a diagonal line towards my temple. I then put the wand at the end of the line I just drew and bring it back to meet the eyeliner at my lash line. Finally, I fill it in!

  • The inner corner is super easy to achieve. I just draw a line that extends from my inner corner to my nose, and then draw another line back to my lower lash line, and fill the little triangle in!prom pic 14 cropped

9. So now I use the L’oreal Infallible eyeliner in black to line my top and bottom waterlines. (Side Note: It’s impossible for me to apply eyeliner in my waterlines without making my eyes watery!!!! Any tips?)

Here’s the whole look! I applied BareMinerals bareSkin foundation all over my face with the BareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush. I strongly contoured my cheeks and forehead with the glo minerals bronzer I used in my crease and put  L’oreal lipstick in shade 800-Fairest Nude and Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus on my lips for a nice nude look! Finally, I tamed my eyebrows with Maybelline’s sculpting brow mascara called Brow Drama in Deep Brown. REMEMBER: You can alter this look in any way you want to fit your needs! These are just my suggestions!

      HAHAHAHA!! That is hilarious and true! My friend told me that my eyes remind him of Lady Gaga in her Bad Romance music video! Lol!
      I do like the Nars Kabuki Ita Brush. However, I do find that it can be hard to blend out the product, and I usually use a larger fluffy brush to blend things out. If you want super duper strong contours, then this brush is perfect, but if you want something softer, then I wouldn’t recommend this brush!
