Sunset Smoke Inspired Ball Look (Look #1)


So flashback to 2012, when I had my ball or prom at the wonderful Pegasus Hotel. I didn't know much about makeup those days, so it was up to a good family friend, KB and her mom who helped me with my makeup and I looked so BEAUTIFUL.

Coming back to 2017, where I am about to graduate UWI, but I feel to go back to ball likkle bit with this look. Hope you like it though.

Firstly, I primed my face with the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer and set it with Sacha Buttercup Powder, then I filled in my brows with the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso and used my L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in Toffee to fix up my brows likkle bit.

Secondly, I primed my eyes with the L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in Toffee. Then used the Nubian 2 Palette. I put "Morocco" as a transition colour in my crease, "Jezebel" and "Kenya" to define my crease and BLEND. Put "Zuri" in the inner 1/3 of my eyelid as well "Yaa" to top it. Lined my eyes with BH Cosmetics Liquid Liner in Black and did my lash routine of primer and mascara (pree previous posts for details on my lash routine)

Thirdly, I used my Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation + Concealer in Golden Tan (10) and stippled it into the skin, then I used L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in Toffee and Medium Bisque to brighten my under eyes and L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in Chestnut for my cream contour. BLEND until a flawless finish. Used Sacha Buttercup Powder all over the face as a setting powder, and used my Maybelline Fit Me Powder in Mocha to set my contour.

Lastly, sprayed my face with L.A. Girl Pro Setting Spray, then highlighted with the L.A. Girl Strobe Lite Strobing Powder in 08. Applied "Jezebel" from the palette above on the lower lash line. Then applied Vaseline on my lips, lined by lips with J.Cat Lip Liner in Chocolate and used NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Dubai.

Have An Amazing Ball/Prom....TURN UP TURN UP! 

*P.S. This look can be used for any formal event or if you want to go full out glam if needs be, especially if you pass the ball/prom stage like myself :P

  1. Went to LA venue here for a great all-you-can-eat buffet and they held nothing back. Their food, service and mostly the staff were truly amazing. I was starving and am one of those voracious "sampling" type eaters who has to try everything in a buffet, and I couldn't make it!
