#throwbackthursday – Pretty In Pink

This week’s Throwback Thursday picture is a makeup look I did back in 2012 when I just started my blog. I called the look “Pretty In Pink with Ombré Lips”. It amazes me how much I’ve developed as a makeup artist when looking back at some of my old makeup looks on my blog. Although I actually think this particular look is pretty some looks I’ve posted on my blog just look awful lol :).

♡ Simple Prom/Bridal Makeup Tutorial

Video

Happy Sunday guys! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Since prom season is just around the corner I decided to record a very simple prom inspired makeup tutorial. When doing both prom and bridal makeup I personally think glowy skin is a MUST! Adding some highlighter on the top of the cheekbone gives the entire face an instant glow, which also looks amazing in photos.

This makeup look is beginner friendly and doesn’t require a lot of products. In the tutorial I’ll show you two lipstick options that go well with the eyes; A glossy nude lip and my new MAC lipstick ‘All Fired Up’ which is a bright matte reddish/pink colour.

Let me know what you think of this makeup look and which lip colour that’s your fave.
