Orange Prom Makeup Look

It's prom season again. Since I am a pretty new makeup artist, it is a toughie to really get your name out there. A really good friend of mine went to her prom this past weekend, and given her busy schedule with work and school, setting up an appointment at a MAC or makeup counter at the mall was out of reach for her. Plus, it was out of her budget since most counters (probably all counters) require you to purchase a certain $ amount of products.

Anyway, here is the look I came up with for her.

I honestly came up with this look in my head probably 30 minutes before she came over my house. I knew I didn't want to make her makeup look too dramatic since her dress did just that already with the bright red-orange. I just did an orange coppery smokey eye with matte browns to define the crease and the outer corner for a softer look.

I went with a lot of matte colors (except for her lid color) since prom usually is a picture-heavy event and I didn't want her to look extra washed out with the light reflecting against her face.

Here are the products I used:

MAC Prolongwear Concealer in NC35
Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in 140 mixed with a little of 153
Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette
ELF HD Finishing Powder
MAC Blush in Immortal Flower
NYC Sunny Bronzer

NYX Brow Cake Powder in Medium Brown
NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base
MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
MAC Brash e/s
MAC Fresh Daily e/s
the Balm Sultry and Sleek e/s
MAC Vanilla e/s
Milani Liquif'eye eyeliners in Black and Brown
Ardell 101 Lashes
Maybelline Falsies w/p Mascara
Loreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black liquid liner

MAC Martha l/s
MAC Love Nectar l/g

I'm really trying to build my makeup kit now so I can do makeup on more clients and really separate my own collection. I recently did purchase a few things from from the sale they were having on select products. I might actually try to grab another palette before the sale ends June 8th at 10AM PST. I am now looking at investing in disposable wands and sponges and stuff, and some makeup brushes. Suggestions would be nice! :)
