Prom Night! Beauty DIY

By Andrea Claire · May 29, 2011 · 0 Comments ·


This is Sage the morning of prom. She just woke up. Frankly she could have eaten her wheaties and then thrown on her prom dress and gone. But like every girl, she likes to play dress up.

The Canadian International School, Singapore Masquerade Prom 2011!

Sage's dress is from BCBG. Watch our shopping for prom video blog here! The mask is from Far East Plaza aka Teen Shopping Paradise [for me too - love Far East Plaza, cut tag shops galore!]

Get The Look


SKIN: A spritz of Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner followed by Barrier Repair


Foundation: Rae Cosmetics Climate Control 25*

Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow/Liner

$19.00 at Benefit

Eyes: Base with Benefit Birthday Suit [I LOVE this. It's a great shimmery base/primer for shadow. I use this one A LOT]

In Sage's crease I started with Yaby Cosmetics Abyss eye shadow and then layered MAC loose pigment in The Family Crest. I used the MAC pigment under the eyes for the smokey look.

Long-wear Gel Eyeliner

$21.00 at Bobbi Brown

To finish the eyes I used Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. TIP: Apply this onto the waterline - it sets nicely and since the gel liners aren't 'flat' they add a little catch light [sparkle] into the eye. Mascara Bad Bad Black Opulash from the MAC Wonder Woman collection

Shimmer Brick Compact - Nectar

$38.00 at Bobbi Brown

Cheeks: To add definition into Sage's cheekbones I started with MAC Taupe Powder Blush layered with Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar. NOTE: Taupe Blush is not for medium-to-dark skin tones as then it will look chalky. Try a matte bronzer two shades darker than your skin for your cheek hollows! Need to know where to put your taupe/bronzer suck in your cheeks... put it there [Referred to as 'fish face' in Allure]


Sage found her 'mask' at Far East Plaza. They were quirky glasses. She removed the arms and then attached black ribbon to tie on. Clever runs in our family.

Since Sage is spoiled her friends might as well be too.

This is Vivian. I dolled her up as well. [PS Vivian designed and made her dress! It's STUNNING!]

Here's the back of her head:

She picked a pretty style. This is braided in two sections AND two types of braids. [yes, I know there are stray hairs - I'm a fan of the deconstructed hair - not the helmet]

  1. I set Vivian's hair on velco rollers for lift. TIP: Curl each section first with a medium/large barrel ceramic curling iron which will add shine and help smooth flyaways
  2. Then I sectioned her hair into two - essentially the top and bottom - think from ear to ear
  3. I teased the roots from the top section and brushed lightly to smooth the outer layer of the teasing, divide into three sections and french braid loosely [without tension] to the occipital [bone bump you feel 1/2 way down your head] secure with an elastic



4. The bottom section is a fishtail braid. Start at one side and fishtail horizontally, include the tail section from the above braid and continue until you run out of hair.

5. Wrap an elastic to secure the ends and tuck up hiding into the hair.

Curse my name or thank me as you try!

Zoie Jean [sans frock] is always upstaging!

Hi Anon!

Sage's lip colour is Givenchy lip liner in Lip Beige, fill in the entire lip with the pencil , then layered with Estee Lauder's Pure Color Gloss in Peach Sizzle.

PS I LOVE the Givenchy lip liners. The texture is amazing! See the Lip Rouge colour here: http://andreaclaire.onsugar.com/Behind-Pages-Seventeen-Singapore-May-2011-15562127
