Start with finding the perfect dress. I suggest you check out this wonderful website with some of the most AMAZING PROM FASHIONS at the BEST prices! www.victoriasdress.co.uk (we're not related but I'd love to be).
Don't be confused by the pricing, the price is listed in English Pounds but is easily translated into US Dollars. They will even customize a PROM DRESSaccording to your measurements (check sizing chart for European compared to US sizes). When you see these dresses you will die! They are SO gorgeous!!! And the prices are so low, it’s worth the wait! Here’s some of my faves:

Once you find your dream dress, style the makeup and hair around that.
A great dress doesn’t need a lot of accessories and jewelry, but nice earrings and a handbag that compliments the dress will pull it all together.
Notice Selena Gomez keeps the makeup simple and neutral, heavy on the lashes. She’s wearing a set of thick falsies which is a great accent at an evening event. For soft rose shimmery tones on the eyes try Urban Decays Naked 3 Palette! To make your lip color last, smooth a layer of Stila lip Tint before making the lips glossy and nude shimmery, like with Butter of London’s LIPPY SHIMMERS in pink, peach, or gold tones. Next, dance like Cinderella and enjoy!

How to Book Beautiful Bridal Makeup and Hair!

It’s that time again-Wedding Season!! And what better way to celebrate brides than a little “how to” choose what I think is the loveliest Hair and makeup that fits you and your personality:). SO many former Brides have come to me after their wedding (when someone else did it) and say that their makeup was way too heavy or didn’t fit their personality or that they had to re-do it themselves after a random makeup artist did their face without understanding them as a person….

1) ALWAYS DO A HAIR and MAKEUP TEST before your big day. That’s my recommendation. You don’t need surprises like that on your big day:)

2) ALWAYS make sure your Makeup or hair person understands what you like and don’t like. DONT BE AFRAID TO COMMUNICATE with them. It’s the only way you’ll get what you want.

3) BE REALISTIC! if your hair is shoulder length , don’t expect a hairstylist to be able to create some of the updos below unless you buy her some hair Extentions to put in.

4) KNOW YOUR FACE. If you see a picture of a celebrity and you expect a makeup artist to make you look exactly like her, you may be disappointed. Remember that every face, eye shape, eye color, nose, eyebrows, mouth, lips, cheek bones, etc are different, but an artist should get you close to the vibe you are going for. Again, if you hate black eyeliner, say so! She or he should be able to show you options.

5) HAVE A STYLE. If your wedding is out in the woods, try some nice golds and bronzes ( at your comfort level). If your Wedding has a vintage or retro theme, try a nice red lip and black cat eye to go with your classic surroundings.

6). RELAX!! This is YOUR day and you should feel,beautiful and happy. Don’t let hair and makeup be a stress factor. Let it be fun!! Once you are happy with your artist (s) in the trials, relax, sit back, have a mimosa, put on some happy music and ENJOY!

7). CALL ME FIRST! LOL I use only waterproof, skin-like airbrush makeup that looks really natural. And I guarantee my work and your satisfaction:). I’ve also got several excellent hair and makeup people in my arsenal who feel the same way, http://www.victoriarowe.com . We serve all of California, Vegas and beyond (travel fees may apply).

BE HAPPY AND BEAUTIFUL!!

Post oscar wrap up!

Hollywoods most glamorous day of the year is always accompanied by fun makeup! My clients went to the red carpet viewing party, “Night of 100 Stars” at The always fabulous Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills on Oscar sunday, March 2.

Here we have actress Stacey Brumbaugh and Producer/actress Kayla Tabish after I did their makeup at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. I used Elementwo airbrush foundation for a dewy yet waterproof finish, airbrush blush and contour also Elementwo (www.elementwo.com) and Stilas magnificent metals foil finish eye shadow in metallic pixie dust over Urban Decays Naked Palette(#1). I lined the inner rim of the eyes with Pop Beauty’s vegan inliner blue and inliner black (ulta.com). Don’t forget the perfect concealer-IT Cosmetics “Bye Bye Undereye”. Love!!!!!!

Everyone impressed in their gorgeous gowns. Kayla graced the scene in a beautiful Baldono gown, and Stacey wore an original Pamela Rowland to the gala event! These ladies will be starring and co-starring in a movie with Malcolm McDowell this year called “Zero Day” shooting this summer!
