Prom 2018 Makeup, Hair & Outfit Ideas!


For most girls, prom is the most highly anticipated event of the year! Let's kick off this season right with all of my favorite hair & makeup trends for 2018! I will be including fabulous deals for $100 or less! 

1. Sequins!

Sequin Gown $89.90 -


Sequins have to be my favorite trend this prom season, or any occasion that you can pull off a stunning gown like this one! Look for a sequin dress in a fun color, such as emerald green and you will be sure to stand out!





 This Velvet Clutch Is Available @ Nordstrom for $40.00







Both Shoes Are Available @ Nordstrom for $88.95



Hair & Makeup Inspiration -


When it comes to wearing a gown with sequins, the rest of the look should remain simple and balanced. An easy style for the makeup & hair is to go for a matching matte eyeshadow and a messy bun.

e.l.f. Mad For Matte Eyeshadow Palette $10.00-  

This palette is a great match for any dress that could use a more simple, and easy eyeshadow look. The Mad for Matte Palette from e.l.f. is also a great staple for every girl's makeup bag, including a variety of soft neutral options perfect for blending out the crease!



2. Two-Piece!


Two-Piece Dress $79.90 -


A two-piece gown is a perfect way to stay in trend this season and keep the look sophisticated & flawless. If you are wearing a black gown, incorporate in pops of color with shoes & accessories to make it all your own!

Both Shoes Are Available  @SteveMadden for $99.95



 Hair & Makeup Inspiration -


My go-to for any special occasion is always the little black dress, it provides me an opportunity to have some fun with my makeup. Give a sparkly glitter liner a try, or a vibrant fuschia lip color to finish off this look! 





 Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow  $24.00- 

Apply this product with an angle brush in a cat eye shape, allow it to dry down fully. Then apply a dark black liquid eyeliner over the top to achieve this look, for best results go over the black liner twice.



3. Velvet!

Ruched Velvet Dress $79.90 -


A one sleeve dress has always been a style that I love, but in velvet, this is even better! Look out for bold colors, textures and unique asymmetrical cuts this season!
