Yes, I've Already Planned my Makeup for Prom

[ to find out where I've been for the past few months, click here]

Being a beauty addict, I was already creating mental wishlists of the makeup products I wanted for the event months before prom and had practised multiple looks. After finally settling on a (rather large) group of products and managing to create a look I could actually put together AND re-create (forget the winged liner Esmé), of course I wanted to share it with you all.  I wanted the main feature to be a flawless base and added a light shimmery smokey eye and nude lip to the mix for a more timeless look. Hopefully this will provide some inspiration or ideas for those of you who have prom approaching, or simply for a more subtle evening makeup style. Enjoy!

P.S I have never worn so much makeup in my life and predict that Bioderma will be my best friend on the night.
P.P.S If you were wondering why I used two blushes, it's so that it lasts longer (powder over cream). A little Lisa Eldridge tip for you all;)
