Prom Makeup Tutorial

It seems that Prom season is around the corner, and I wanted to create a prom makeup tutorial for this post. Recently, I just purchased my first ELF product, which is the baked eyeshadow palette in NYC, and I’m pretty impressed with this palette. This palette cost around $15 at Winners in Canada (USD$10 on their website), so it’s pretty affordable for (graduating) students. The pigment pay-off is so-so when applied dry, but applied wet, the eyeshadows are quite pretty. The champagne shade in this palette is applied wet, and it has a beautiful shimmer.

Anyways, I didn’t have a full face picture from my camera since the battery went died, but I did take a picture using the iphone, which I posted on Instagram. The eyes are very shimmery and defined, but not too dark. I think it’s a very pretty look for prom!
