Hey guys! I hope you enjoy this post about achieving the look I wore to Senior Ball back in January! I am so excited to share with you my dress, shoes, and overall hair and makeup look! Read on if you’re just as pumped as I am :))
I The Dress I
I got my dress from this website I recently discovered called Tobi. The dress was $30 and my favorite dress I have worn to a formal yet! The material is amazing quality and the length of the slit and dress itself was perfect for me. I ordered this dress in a small.
I The Shoes I
The shoes I wore were ordered from Lulus. I purchased a size nine and they fit amazingly! They were completely covered in thick pieces of sliver glitter and sparkled in the light so beautifully.
I The Hair I
For my hair style, I had my best friend style it for me! The look we were striving for was a curled messy bun with 2 braids leading into it and I was so happy with the result! To begin, she sprayed each strand of hair with hairspray and then used a tapered wand to curl my hair. Once my entire head was curled, she took two small sections and braided them each. Lastly, she placed all my hair where I wanted the bun located and she started to use bobbin pins to secure the bun. I also love the “messy” look so I pulled out some pieces that framed my face and curled them.
I The Makeup I
For the makeup look, I knew that I wanted a bronzed complexion and a sparkly neutral eyeshadow. I started off with foundation, concealer, powder, bronzer, blush and a highlighter as my base. For product names, take a look at My Everyday Makeup Routine blog post! Then I used two eyeshadow palettes with browns and neutral colors in them. I placed a light cream as a base, a darker brown in my crease and outer “V” and applied a silver sparkle all over my lid with my finger to make sure it was very pigmented. Next I brushed out and filled in my eyebrows and applied a gel to make sure they stayed put all night! To finish off the look, I put on mascara, setting spray and a light peach lipstick from NYX.
