Simple Prom Makeup ♥

Prom was one of my favorite parts of High School. Getting dressed up and having a fun night out with all of my favorite people from school was the best. I’ve always been into makeup so getting glammed up was of course the best part!

I decided that I wanted to film a simple prom look for those of you who aren’t into the glitzy makeup looks like I am.Truth is, when I went to my Junior and Senior prom I wore neutral-ish makeup, so I decided to re-create something similar. I paired it with two different lip combinations so that it was suitable for those who like all neutral or for those who like a little boldness.

I hope you guys enjoy this look. Subscribe & Share if you do!

Bold Vampy Makeup Tutorial ♥

Lately I’ve been so into dark vampy lips like I’ve never been before. I feel like they seriously make any makeup look, whether it’s simple or intricate, look amazing! Also, most vampy lipsticks make your teeth look whiter, and who wouldn’t want that? One of my serious go-to’s lately has been my Revlon VaVa Violet lipstick. It’s a beautiful deep plum color that can pretty much go with anything. For me, the darker the better when it comes to these types of lipsticks.

While filming this, I had no idea what makeup look I wanted to create. All I knew was that I wanted it to be based on this lipstick. I think it came out pretty good, right?
