Prom Makeup

Go big or go home!! Makeup is important for prom. Prom is the night of all nights out of the school year for you to glam yourself up. Depending on the color of design of your dress is the way you should do your makeup.

If your makeup is plain then you should have bold makeup. Glitter might be your go too. Or if you aren’t feeling a bold eye look, maybe a bold lip stick.

If your dress is “poppin” then maybe a subtle makeup look would be best because you don’t want to look like a clown.

Skin and Acne Care

Taking care of your skin should be in a daily routine. Caring for your skin helps prevent acne and even dry skin. Washing your face with a daily face wash in the mornings before you apply your makeup and even after you take your makeup off at night helps prevent dirt build up on your face and takes bad oils on your face away and gives good oils back and prevents the awful acne. Using face masks once a week helps remove dead skin and small hard to reach blackheads. Using an exfoliator also helps remove dead skin cells and softens the skin. But using too much of some products everyday isnt as good for your skin has you may think. Washing your face is excluded from that. You should only be using exfoliator and face masks once a week. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.

Good brands of skin care products are neutrogena, clean and clear, olay, proactive, nivea, and clinique. They are affordable and they are powerful.

What’s in your makeup bag?

Usually girls have huge makeup bags and have a butt load of makeup in their bag. That is totally fine but no one uses all the makeup they own all in one day. So what’s in your daily makeup bag? Most of the time its your face products, little eye products and some brows. Depending on how much makeup you put on everyday will determine how much makeup you carry around. I want to you give some basic necessities for a smaller makeup bag.

  • Small travel size primers

  • Foundation

  • Powders

  • Mascara

  • Small travel size eyeshadow palette (sometimes you can get one of these that includes highlighters, bronzer, and blush)

  • Some brushes

  • Brows (optional)

  • Etc

Monthly Beauty Subscriptions

There is many, many, many, monthly subscriptions you can get for only $10-$30 a month.  Usually you get your beauty products in a cosmetic bag or it comes in a disposable box. Typically you get 4-5 full size products or 5 samples of products. In these subscriptions you get makeup, hair products, skin care products, makeup brushes and even nail polish and more. Most of the time you can download the app for the subscription or just go online and sign up for it and create your profile to match what your beauty preferences are.
