This one is a mega post, long but fun! In a world where everything beautiful is said to be subjective to taste I still have my personal standards, especially when it comes to makeup for little women. Call me old-fashioned but when it comes to prom makeup I still strongly think that it ought to celebrate youth and not mask it entirely. I feel like breaking out into a rash whenever I hear about young people pulling all sorts of strings to try to look older at prom. I spent the other night helping prep my cousin Stella who was invited to an all boys’ school prom. I did her makeup upon request.
There’s a fine line difference between looking older and looking of age and I always sincerely hope that girls decide on the latter just as Stella did. Read on for a before and after shot, products used, details on how I did it and a sneak peek at Stella’s personal makeup kit at the end.
