|Ignore the face haha. My sister was doing my hair at the time!|
For my makeup, I chose to go for more of a gold smokey eye. I usually don't wear too much makeup and doing it myself was a bit intimiditing, but in the end, everything turned out great! I even had someone ask me who did my makeup for me??! I told them I did it and I felt so proud! lol
For my makeup, I used the naked palette and the colors "smog" and "creep."I also used the urban decay eye primer and after a night of dancing, I have to say that it works very well!! On my inner eyelids, I had a sparkly white shadow. For my eyeliner, I took things to the extreme with a thick cateye (gotta love my monolids) and I applied some gold liquid liner on top of that. The gold liner really sold the look in my opinion! For lips, I had on some nude gloss. =)
My hair was simple, but boy did it take forever to do! I was looking for a simple half up half down type hairdo and I eventually settled on this one. I knew for sure that my hair was going to be curled for prom. I asked my sister to help me since it'
s near impossible to get the hair in the back. My hair took over an hour, but in the end, it was worth it because my hair looked beautiful!! The reverse ombre effect that I had in my hair looked so gorgeous with the curls!! I loved the way my hair looked that night.
For my nails, I kinda cheated and brought my own fake nails to glue on haha. They actually turned out really nicely and people had though that I got them done somewhere. The only thing about the nails though are that it doesn't last that long. (which can be a good thing since I had to pull them off before I could take my contacts out!!) Getting your nails done is quite costly and for my prom, the only thing I wanted to splurge on was my dress! Therefore, I reused my heels, did my own hair, makeup, and nails!
|Attempting to put the boutonniere on.. .and failing !|
|Funny Faces are a must!!|
I am the queen of either being super late/rushed or super early to an event.. almost never on time! So therefore when my date came, I was still in the midst of getting ready. Ohhh how embarrassing on my part! After my finishing touches, I came out and we exchanged corsages and boutonnieres! The corsage was easy to slip on my wrist, but the boutonniere was a struggle. haha. My main goal with the boutonniere was to not poke him which I accomplished, but I never got the flower on. I needed some aid after! haha We took a few pictures in our house and our backyard before heading off to another location.
|My mommy and I!|
Our 2nd location was a popular one for senior prom pictures. Everyone literally comes here for prom! Luckily for us, we got here quite early ( I actually think we were the first) so we had some time to ourselves before the crowd came. This gave me time
|Hunting for out friends lol.|
We were able to get lots of photos by ourselves and with our family, but after about half an hour, we got worried since we saw no one showing up! So we resorted to whipping out our phones and began texting our friends. The majority of people did not respond to us, but the ones who did told us that they were running late! (That would be me if my date had not shown up lol!) phew.. at least we knew now that we weren't in the wrong place. We were just early!
Once our friends finally made it, we stood around for a lot more pictures! I felt super famous with all those cameras pointing at me hehe.. I didn't know which camera to look into! I think we spent an extra half hour just having our pictures taken and my group of friends chose to leave a tiny bit early. Therefore, we wouldn't have to fight the traffic
|The Great Gatsby Themed Prom|
I'll probably talk more about this later, but earlier this week, I was speaking with someone who I met a few months ago. We've hung out before and there are obviously fun memories, but it's just such a weird feeling. I really enjoyed those memories, but it hurts me a lot to know that they are now just that to me .. memories. As much as I try, I could never relive them. It hurts because I would do anything to just go back in time and relive it all with the same feelings, but I can't! I know making new fun memories can help cure this (which I am doing), but whenever I see something that reminds me of the past, I can't help but feel a bit sad but I'm still glad that it happened.
Did you have senior prom?
How did you end your senior year?
Have you ever had that feeling that you just want to go back in time and relive parts of your life, but you realize that you can't? I'm struggling a lot with this right now, but I think keeping myself busy is the only cute at the moment!
