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!

Airbrushing makeup foundation, bronzes, blush, and more!

Happy new year readers!!! I thought it would Cool to talk about airbrushing. I know that not many folks have access to it on a daily basis but I’m going to share a few jobs where I use airbrush makeup. The truth is, there is a company that is making it easier for consumers to use on a daily basis and that is element2beauty.com . This lightweight, compact little machine has most noticeably a UNIQUE GUN that uses water based OR silicone foundations AND DOESNT NEED TO BE CLEANED IN-BETWEEN USES!!! This us unheard of..it’s a true miracle.
I’ve ditched my big powerful compressors and I’ve been taking this one on ALL MY JOBS:). It’s so easy anyone can do it,
Here’s a recent job I used it on:

Pop singer Zhavea

I used Elementwo (www.elementwo.com) foundation and blush and bronze shimmer with the element2beauty airbrush gun and compressor. (www.element2beauty.com)

It’s SO easy! Just pour a few drops of foundation into the gun, pull back on the button and make circles with the gun about 3 inches from your skin until you’re happy with the amount of coverage..Perfection!

She’s also wearing the original Urban Decay NAKED palette and gloss from Lorac in Mark mixed with gold pigment from Makeup Forever. Her black eyeliners are Pop Beauty’s Inliner black and My One Liner. She’s also wearing Lash Extentions Mascara from Pop Beauty.
BELLISSIMA! This life size photo cut out of Zhavea can be seen at SHOES FOR THE STARS on Melrose!!
Love her!!!
