Beauty Blitz: Formal Makeup

Tomorrow is my sorority formal and I’m really excited. I’m bringing my best friend and I know we’ll definitely have the best time (we always do!).

My dress is nothing super special. It’s short (I hate wearing gowns, they’re so hard to dance in!) and it’s a fuschia color. I don’t know how, but lately it seems like I’m always wearing a fuschia colored dress!

Anyways, makeup is very important when it comes to formal night. Here are some great picks for the special night!:

Sweet Heart by OPI | Laura Mercier Lip Glace | Radiant Creamy Concealer | Quickliner for Eyes | Duo Eyeshadow | bareMinerals Ready | All Nighter | Daisy | Colossal Volum’ Express

A few notes about these choices:

  1. I love the Sweet Heart nail color! My boyfriend actually bought me this for Christmas and it’s a perfect pale pink shade and it always looks nice and shiny and clean!
  2. I don’t really like getting designer mascara because I’ve read tons of articles that they are a complete waste. I just get my favorite from the drug store.
  3. The All Nighter spray is perfect for a night like this, because it helps your makeup last long!
  4. If you’re using foundation or powder, I highly suggest mixing in a tiny bit of corn starch. Yes, I said corn starch! I learned on Pinterest that this keeps it from getting shiny, and guess what?! It actually works! Awesome trick!
  5. I would also recommend one of those Camera Ready cosmetic products to make you look flawless in photos. Try this one by Smashbox.
