And if you’re also on the hunt for shimmering accessories to pair up with your dream dress, rest assured that we’ve got you covered in that department as well!

Need some suggestions for makeup essentials? Yes, consider us your faithful beauty oracle as well. When wearing a prom look infused in beautiful pink hues, try Nars Illuminator for a healthy and subtle peachy glow to your skin. For a soft sheer cheek, try Nars Blush in Amour. Add a dose of rosey pink sheen to your lips using your favorite trusty lip gloss or perhaps try this luscious Lip Balm Rose Petal Salve by Rose&CO (Available at Nelly.com). And although it’s key to keep your cosmetics at a minimum when opting for an overall light pink prom look, a fierce cat-eye is always a must! Try Stila Smudge Pot in Black Cat Shimmer for a vixen meets angel look.

At Camille La Vie, we not only provide an insane amount of the most beautiful prom dresses, homecoming dresses, wedding dresses and virtually any style of dress for your specials occasions, but we’re also morphing into fabulous beauty savvy ladies, with an obsession for all things makeup! And with prom night inching its way toward us, we realize it’s not only essential to find the perfect dress but to ensure that our hair and makeup are perfectly divine in every way. While the right dress that you choose will undoubtedly highlight your best body assets, wearing the right makeup and hairstyle will surely accentuate your beautiful features. And for this post, we’ll start with the eyes! With a myriad of eyeshadow palettes and current beauty trends to choose, the task of finding the right colors can be daunting. However, there are a few styles that remain timeless and versatile for any stylish look that you’re striving to convey. And here, we’re zeroing in on the SMOKEY EYE effect.

The smokey eye is a long-time favorite amongst the A-list celebrity crowd (see Kim Kardashian’s version above). It creates a deep and sultry look, bringing a sensual dose of romanticism when paired with a beautiful dress. The key to this particular look is focusing in adding drama to the eyes, while keeping other makeup areas to a bare minimum, like a light gloss for your lips and soft rouge for your cheeks. Here’s our list of must-have beauty products and tools to accomplish this smokey eye effect:

1. Models Own Smokey Eye Kit by Asos
2. Yves Saint Laurent ‘Volume Effet Faux Cils Noir Radical’ Mascara
3. Stila Smudge Pot Gel Eyeliner
4. Eylure Naturalites Double Lashes
5. NARS Night Collection Eyeshadow -Night Rider
6. Stila cosmetics – jewel eye shadow
7. Nars Primer
8. Sephora Collection Pro Natural Dome Smudge Brush #13
9. Sephora Collection Pro Oval Blending Brush #27

Steps to achieving the smokey eye look:
1. First prep your eyelids by applying a few tiny dabs of Nars Primer over them, making sure to rub in a circular motion, allowing your skin to absorb the cream.

2. Line both the top and bottom rims with eyeliner, blending around with a smudging eyeliner tool.

3. Apply the darkest shadow hue around the lids and bottom rims of eyes. Make sure to use a blending blush to even and soften out the color.

4. Apply a small hint of white shimmering eyeshadow right below the brow area, near the highest part of your brow arch.

5. Finish off with a few generous swipes of voluminous black mascara for ultimate dramaticism!

Prom Hairstyles – Tips by Camille La Vie for Prom Hair Updos

Although the classic chignon remains a timeless hairstyle favorite when attending posh social events like Prom or a special gala, it’s always fun to kick the updo a few notches and show off your gleaming locks in modern and creative ways. From loose and romantic side buns, bohemian styled french twists, Elzabethan braids, like Nicole Richie’s (shown top row, second from left), to a refreshing new take on the french twist, the options are seemingly endless. And if your dream prom look entails either a strapless dress, one shoulder dress, a sexy high to low dress, or perhaps something with an enticing sweetheart neckline, a unique updo will not only showcase your beautiful shoulders and décolletage but also highlight your overall prom style and make you the center of that sparkling dancefloor!

And to capture that sleek look with major hold, we recommend Bumble & Bumble Classic Hairspray to keep your do strictly in place during major party hours. To silkify and rid those pesky fly aways, TIGI Bed Head After the Party Smoothing Cream works its fabulous wonders. Another must-have straightening product with a healthy dose of sweet-smelling hibiscus is Frederic Fekkai’s Advanced Silky Straight IRONLESS shampoo…and the plus to buying this baby – it contains essential proteins to heighten your hair’s vitality. If you’re going for a loose and wavy updo with a summery beach effect, Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray will not disappoint (we have bottles stashed in our own offices in case we need a boost of beach wave). And with spring in full gear, the warmer climate may put a little damper on our hair and create those unwanted frizz and damaged strands. To fight nature’s elements, we suggest scooping up a heavenly bottle of Moroccan Oil. It’s not only smooths and provides the necessary nutrients for your hair, but also aids in hair regeneration too!
