What makes this dress so fabulous is that you can wear it for multiple occasions–it’s dressy and semi-formal, but it’s not so over the top that you could only label it “prom.” I would totally rock this on date night and depending on the fabric, maybe the day, too. With this particular dress in its peachy-gold shade, I think makeup can be kept quite simple, focusing on playing up natural features through careful foundation application, contouring, etc. You can easily pair this with a bold red or berry lip, but you could do a warm coral, as well. Because it is a light color, there are limitless opportunities for looks. For eyes, I think it is key to go for a light gold (peachy-gold, even) like shades of Goldmine, Motif, Rose Blanc, etc. A cat eye would work well in this, especially if one were to go for matte or semi-matte red lips.

Check out suggested looks: one, two, & three. Dress is available at Nordstrom.com for $78.00 (um, steal!).

Temptalia Asks You

What product did it seem like everyone hated, but you love? Surely there’s a much-ranted over product that has somehow managed to earn a spot on your beauty shelf! What is it?

Okay, I was trying to do this whole horizontal placement thing, and it just doesn’t work well with my eye shape, I don’t think! When the eye is open (as it most often is), it just didn’t look right, so I had to fudge it up a bit to make it more my style (this is the result). Could have used some more blending at the top, but at least the lips rocked! And the colors were bright :)

I used Pink Pearl pigment on lid (PRO), Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on lid, Parfait Amour eyeshadow in crease, Contrast eyeshadow above crease, Thunder eyeshadow above Contrast (LE), Nylon eyeshadow on brow, Royal Wink fluidliner on upper lash line, Lovely Lily pigment on lower lash line (LE), Graphblack technakohl on lower waterline, and Plushblack plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush (LE) on cheeks. I had Show Orchid (PRO) lipstick with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) on my lips.

It’s prom season, and I’ve been getting more and more requests on what to do makeup-wise! If you know me, you know I’m an advocate of coordinating your eye makeup with your clothes, and the dress is no exception.

This vibrant multi-colored dress should help inspire you when thinking of appropriate makeup to pair it with. I love the idea of doing a mermaid inspired eye (#2 shown) with a purple twist (perhaps having some Parfait Amour or Contrast eyeshadow in the outer crease/lid). But because the gown has so much blue and purple, you can easily opt for an all-purple eye or even all-teal eye. To downplay the colors, you can go for a subtle smoky eye that has a little bit of blue or purple accents to help tie everything together.

Check out details for the looks suggested: one, two, three. Dress is available at Nordstrom.com for $286.00.
