Narcissist: Prom Night!

Hey Everyone!

I know, I know, it's been a very long time since I last wrote a post. And I'm sorry. But, in my defense (and I'm going to use my usual excuse) I was VERY busy. I've had AP tests, finals, prom, senior checkout, graduation, and graduation parties to attend. These last three weeks I've been very sleep deprived and have had no time for blogging. So again, I'm sorry.
Twelve awful years of American public education, ten different schools, three different states, and I'm done. I feel free at last!
So now that I'm done with all the celebrations and I've got a week before I go off to Paris for my graduation/18th birthday present, I'll post some pictures of probably one of the most important nights for any American girl- PROM! I spent the entire year planning for my prom (seriously). The process was stressful, messy, and dramatic enough for a telenovela, but the end result was a perfect night.

I had my hair and nails done professionally, but my makeup was all done my me. My dress is Diane Von Furstenberg' "Twisted Dreams" gown, rented from Rent The Runway. My shoes were purchased from Nordstrom.

For pre-makeup I used a clay mask, then I used Clinique's Dramatically Different yellow moisturizer [1], and to prep my face I used SmashBox's Photofinish foundation primer (clear) [2].

For my makeup I used Bare Minerals' Original Foundation [3], blush [4], and Mineral Veil [5]. I used Benefit Cosmetic's High Beam highlighter [6] on my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, inner corner of my eyes, and under my brows. I used Too Faced's brow pencil [7] in my hair color, and Anastasia's clear brow gel [8]. For my eyes I used Urban Decay's famous Eyeshadow Primer Potion [9], two Sephora brand eyeshadows [10] to contour my eyes, and Stila's liquid eyeliner pen [11] to create a cat eye. Then I used Sephora brand false lashes [12] on the outer corners of my eyes. I used DUO's black lash glue [13] to apply. For my lips I used Sephora brand red lipstick [14] in my perfect shade. To finish everything off, I used Urban Decay's All Nighter finishing spray [15].

Prom Makeup Guide

Many people wouldn't use 15 products on their face, but the end result was very light (thanks to the mineral foundation) and never budged. Even when I returned home at 5:00 am and slept in my makuep until 8:00 am, nothing budged.

I'd like to thank my parents for funding my ENTIRE prom night, it turned out VERY special because of them!
