Prom – Special Occasion Makeup

I was given the opportunity to bring my makeup kit on site to three beautiful triplets that wanted a little pampering for their first junior prom. It started with a trial. The challenge in my mind was to give each of these identical girls a unique look that fell in line with their personalities. A challenging task because I had never met the girls before. Once I met them and their parents in their home and had to quickly assess how I would pull an individual look for each one.

I started with girl with the shortest hair because her look screamed “rocker,”  but she clearly didn’t want to have a lot of makeup since she wasn’t very girly. For her I did a smokey brown eye using the Lottie for LimeLight Dream On palette (which she insisted I keep blending to take more off), along with a light cheek and lip (lips with Macaroon Enduring Lip Color, and Faith Signature Lip Gloss on top) and added touches of #6 blush as a pretty highlight.


Next, I moved on to the girl who seemed a little more outgoing. I decided it would be fun to add “Mills” by Lottie from the Dream On palette (@LotStar Instagram) in her crease along with “Lament” which is more of a gold shimmer.  This gave her a bold eye to go with her black and white dress.  I then did her cheeks with a warm bold blush in #7 which looked brilliant against her skin tone.  I showed her lip shades in Candy Apple, Cherry Pie, and #104, and we settled on the true blue red in Cherry Pie.  She was a little scared of the boldness of the color but once everyone (including mom) saw that color, everyone agreed it was perfect.

Lastly, I felt compelled to do a subtle but super pretty Instagram look. I did a subtle cat eye using only shadow, and kept most of the shadows in matte shades including mauve and brown.  I went back and added “Crystal” from the Dream On palette to her inner eye and just a touch on the center of her lid. I also added “Crystal” to highlight the tops of her cheeks and the cupids bow, and just the tip of the nose. I chose the same cheek color in #7, and then the lightest shade of lip color in “Mia” another Enduring Lip Color by Lottie.

All girls were so impressed with their looks (and mom was too) that I’ll be back to do the look for their big prom day. Pictures are coming soon!
