This year will be my third homecoming and I don’t want to call myself a pro but… I definitely know the rundown when it comes to picking out a dress and shoes and makeup and blah blah blah. I felt bad about not posting as often since school has started (I’m taking 3 AP’s lol RIP) and I wanted to do something new so here’s my idea. YOU get to decide what I wear to homecoming. Although, I’ve picked out my dress and shoes (this idea didn’t hit me until midnight last night and homecoming is in a week so I don’t exactly have time to order a new dress), I wanted to let you all choose my hair, nails and makeup. I know it’s not a lot, but hair and makeup can make or break an outfit. Next time I do something fancy (which isn’t often but not all of us can be Blair Waldorf and attend constant Upper-East-Side brunches), I’ll do a BIG thing with a dress poll and shoes poll (budget-friendly of course) and it’ll be GREAT!
To start, you have to know what my dress and shoes look like (DUH).
Lulus.com, Fame and Fortune Black Lace Bodycon Dress, $49 (Made in USA!!!)
DSW, Deenal Pump, $89.95
Okay, so now you know what my dress and shoes look like, let’s look at my hair choices.
I can go total throwback and do curls like homecoming from freshman year, like this-
Clearly I had never heard of lipstick, probably because Kylie Jenner didn’t have lip injections yet, but TY God for getting her Juvederm and me a Kylie Lip Kit.
OR I can go with just light, beach waves, like this-
If I’m being honest, the white of my shorts doesn’t match the white of my purse and it kinda bothers me.
OR no waves at all (sorry, Kanye) and I’ll straighten my hair, like this-
I’m only using pictures of myself cause ya girl ain’t going to jail for copyright infringement HELL NO
SOOOOOOO now the fun part, vote for whatever hairstyle you want me to do and I’ll do it because at this point, I can’t make any decisions and I need help.
Now, the best part, check these eyeshadow looks. Also, I’m using Pinterest pictures so I’m not totally sure if it’s legal but if someone exposes me and I get in trouble, I’m throwing hands.
First up, my girl, Hannah Blair (we’re not really “girls” but I call everyone “my girl” so I’m rolling w/ it). Anyway, she had this KILLER look in her Prom GRWM video, using the TooFaced Chocolate Bar Palette (the palette I use daily btw).
I have to come up with a name for this *~look~* so I can put it in the poll so let’s call it the BRONZE look.
Look two is my girl, Amanda Steele (also not technically my girl but again, still going with it).
I’m gonna call this the SUPER-LASHES AUBURN-Y PINKISH SMOKEY look.
Third, again, Amanda Steele (can you tell I like her?).
I’m calling this look the PINK-Y SORTA ORANGE AND RED SMUDGE look.
Okay so these labels aren’t exactly the clearest but I think you get what I’m saying. I also don’t want to spend 80 billion years trying to do a cut crease so smudge-y is really the look I’m going for this year.
I always say, if your nails don’t look good, you don’t look good. Even though I say that, my nails are chipped 24/7 and I rarely repaint them and I usually pick the polish off in the shower. So what do I know?
I do know that I need your help to pick out a nail color.
OPI, Color: Glitzerland, available at Ulta
OPI, Color: Happy Anniversary, available at Ulta
OPI, Color: Be There In A Prosecco, available at Ulta
I’m trying to keep it simple this year and stick with metallics and nudes.
Thank you so, so much for voting! I couldn’t have decided what to wear without your help! (No, seriously, I can’t make decisions. I’m not even sure how I’ve made it this far in life being this indecisive.) I’ll be sure to post plenty of pictures this Saturday from Homecoming, so be sure to follow me on Instagram @liaskye and on Twitter @liaskye_ to stay updated!
Love you, so much.
