Makeup: Elena Pylarinos MUA
Hey lovelies!

I am feeling and looking like Cleopatra with this winged gold eyeshadow and I'm low-key loving it! Prom season is such a weird time of year because you've got this odd need to HAVE to find a date when really going with your friends or rocking up solo and meeting everybody there are also great options!

Winging your eyeshadow has got to be one of the greatest things in the history of makeup...okay, okay that may be an exaggeration but the effect that it has on my eyes is so awesome! I love the way that it gives the illusion that my eyes have been lifted at an angle like a cat eye; Elena Pylarinos MUA used the tape technique to achieve this look.

If you're wondering how to achieve it yourself then grab some normal sticky tape, cut off a small piece (around 3-4 inches long) and apply it at an angle starting from just below the outer corner of your lower lashline and ending near/in the vicinity of the end of your brow. This allows the tape to act as a guard so that you are left with nothing but a super sharp eyeshadow wing once you have removed the tape. All you need to do is repeat these steps for the other eye and you're good to go!

There is so much versatility with this look because it can be recreated with so many different eyeshadow shades so that you're not left confused about what to do with your makeup at the last minute. I love helping you all feel prepared and there is nothing better than having all the details fine tuned so that all you need to think about is enjoying your night!

I would love if you could let me know when your proms are and if you've got any ideas for how you'll look, let's chat about it all! Are you a golden girl or do you love a smokey eye for special occasions? I want to know!
