Prom Makeup

My sister is growing up really fast and I still can't believe that she's old enough to go to the prom. :D Anyway I did her and  her BFF's makeup for the prom. :)

I wanted to achieve a very natural and flawless look since I want them to look their age and not look older. I had to be very careful in contouring their face and make it really subtle so the shadows don't look too harsh. I did 2 different smokey eye look on each girl.

For my sister, I did a different technique since she's a monolid. I used UD's Money, Loaded and Perversion for her look. How to achieve her look:
1. Apply eye primer.
2. Pat on Money over her lids, since she is a monolid, I applied a little over her non-visible crease and blend out to gradually fade out the color towards her brows.
3. Apply Loaded by gradually adding the color slowly starting from the corner of her eyes going outward and upward towards her brows. I keep adding the color up to 2/3 of her eyelid going towards the center and keeping inner corner of her eyes without this color. I keep adding color with her eyes looking straight (and opened) so I can control and see the color buildup just above her crease. Since she is a monolid, she needs more color above her crease and if not careful it could end up putting too much, so it is important that I apply the color with her eyes open.
4. Add dimension by darkening the outer corners with Perversion.
5. Apply eyeliner gradually making it thicker towards the outer corner of her eyes.
6. Curl lashes, put on false lashes and apply mascara.

For Chelleey, I used UD's Snatch, Maui Wowie, Last Call and Perversion She has a good creased eyes so I used the conventional technique with a twist. How to achieve her look:
1. Apply eye primer
2. Pat on Snatch all over the lids up to her crease and blend out to get rid of harsh lines.
3. Pat on Maui Wowie on the center of her lids. This will serve as highlights to her eyes.
4. Apply Last Call starting from the corner of her eyes, lightly brushing towards the center in single horizontal strokes. Keep applying to build up the color as desired. Then apply color on the crease using a 45 degree strokes upward towards the center. Apply lightly slowly building up the color. Keep building up the color on the outer V.
5. Add dimension by adding Perversion starting from the corner of the eyes and lightly blending the color using light circular strokes. Skip putting on the crease to make the look very light and subtle.
6. Apply eyeliner, thicker on the outer corners, apply false lashes and mascara.
