Hey guys! It’s officially – it’s been five years since I have graduated high school. Which is crazy to me. High school felt like forever, whereas university went by so quickly. So to celebrate this anniversary, I decided to recreate my prom makeup look!
I first pulled out my old dress. It’s actually a vintage 1970s evening dress. The dress unfortunately doesn’t fit me anymore, so for the purpose of this video I am wearing another black dress. I still have my jewellery and shoes, just missing my hair clip.
I got my makeup done at MAC because there wasn’t a Sephora in my mall at the time. From the photos that I have, I figured that I had a cool-toned smokey look with a big wing. I used my Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette (which I just found out has been discontinued) and Dominique Cosmetics palette. The finishing touch on this classy, Hollywood glamour look was a bright red lipstick. I purchased this lipstick for prom and I still have it today (oops) – the classic Ruby Woo.
I remember thinking that I was wearing so much makeup but looked beautiful. Now, after really getting into makeup the past five years, this look was so easy to do. While I don’t regularly rock a red lip, I do smokey eyeshadow all the time. This was also the first time I wore false lashes and now I wear them all the time.
For my prom I got my hair done by my hairdresser. I think she spent a couple of hours doing my hair. Now I’m trying to not use heat on my hair and I also am not the greatest at doing my hair. So I did a low bun with a hair clip instead.
Five years later I am still in love with my prom look. I think because it’s a vintage dress, there is something quite timeless about the look. Let me know in the comments if you guys went to prom, and if you did what do you think of your dress now.
