Anna’s prom was Saturday at Chez Josef, and I was delighted when her mom (who also happens to be my next-door neighbor) hired me to do her daughter’s prom makeup.
Anna is a local vocational high school student focusing on cosmetology, and in addition to being naturally gorgeous (and having beautiful skin), this girl knows her color theory! When I asked what she liked for makeup, she told me “warm colors, not cool” (which made a prettier, more natural complement to her skin tone). She had a subtle but fabulous French manicure with gold tips for the event, so I added matching shimmer to her eyes which gave the natural makeup look a little added “bling” when she blinked, and loads of natural-length individual lash clusters to bring out her eyes. Peach blush and lip gloss completed the look.
The makeup looked wonderful paired with her red prom dress, and I was lucky enough to get photos of the completed look. First, a before & after:
And here’s the finished look, along with her handsome date!
