Makeup tutorial: Prom inspired look

Well hello to you me reader chums! Its crazy to think that around this time last year I left sixth form and was looking forward to my leavers ball; time honestly goes so quickly. Therefore, since its prom/leavers ball season, I thought I would share with you a look I put together that can be worn for this occasion or any event where you would like a special yet natural makeup look. When I had my leavers ball, I wore quite a dewy, glowy look with a neutral eye, similar to what I created today, here's the overall look:

To put together this tutorial, I used the following products:
To begin with I cleansed, toned, moisturised and then went ahead and applied Maybelline's 'Baby skin primer'. As you're going to be wearing the makeup for the whole evening, a face primer is key to keep everything in tact, especially as you'll be dancing the night away! For foundation I chose my favourite which is Rimmel's match perfection in the shade in 'classic ivory'. I love this because it gives such a dewy finish to the skin and makes the skin look much more awake. I stuck to my usual concealer and powder, where I concealed my under eye circles, blemishes and then set it into place. I wanted to go for a strong contour and chose The Body shop bronzer in 'shade 02'. This is perfect because its a matte bronzer and can be applied very naturally as an all over bronze or built up to a deep contour. To finish off the base, I applied Sleek's 'Rose gold' blush on the apples of my cheeks blending upwards. I think this is great for this event because it really helps lift and extenuate the cheek bones with the shimmery, highlighting element. For an added highlight, I also applied the highlighter in Sleek's face form kit on the top of my cheek bones and my brow bone.
Here's a close up of the bronze and highlight:
For the eyes, I kept to a neutral, bronze and shimmery colour with a bit of darker definition in the outer corner. To start off I primed my eyes with Urban Decay's original primer potion to ensure the shadow lasts the whole evening. I then applied the shade 'sidecar' all over the lid to add a shimmery glow. Next, I blended the shade 'naked' through the crease as my transitional colour, followed with 'cover' from the Naked2  basics, in the outer corner to add some depth to the eye. Since I can never do a makeup look without liner, I chose to draw a subtle back line on my upper lash line into a small wing. To finish off the eyes, I curled my lashes and applied a couple of coats of Maybelline's Lash sensational mascara. For my brows, I took the shade 'frisk' from the Naked2 basics and lightly ran it through them and set it with Rimmel's clear brow gel.
Here's a close up of the eyes:
I picked one of the Revlon matte balms for the lips in the shade 'sultry'. I chose this because for one these last for such a long duration of time, meaning you can trust it won't budge for a good while! Also I love this colour, its very vintage, a brown toned dusky pink. Even though its quite a deep shade, its not too bold or bright and therefore its quite subtle and sophisticated - I love what this colour adds to the overall look.
Voila, here is the final look:

I hope you enjoyed the prom look I've created. Are any of you attending prom or leavers this year?
