Red lip, light gold smoky eye (I mean light browns and light gold shimmer, bareky there but still noticeable, hopefully in more of matte than shimmery eyeshadow), classic, small, cat eye and heavy mascara with a pale pink cheek. An updo for the hair, my favorite is a low side bun which I DIY with a sockbun and bobby pins 🙂

@happilyeveraftergirl:  What kind of big event are you going to? Is this super formal black tie, or semi formal/black tie optional? 

Just curious. I’d style this dress differently for a sorority formal vs a charity gala.

How would you rate yourself with ability to do your own hair/makeup? Can you put on fake eyelashes yourself, or would you have to have someone put them on for you?

What kind of jewelry are you typically attracted to? Statement earrings/necklace/ring/bracelet? What is the undertone color of your skin?

What color of shoes are you going to wear, do you have a clutch or purse that you already have?

I was thinking of a bronze-y smokey eye and a neutral lip. I would skip a necklace and do nice earrings and one bracelet. OR I would wear a necklace and just studs.

@happilyeveraftergirl:  Here’s my input of how I’d do that dress: Hair:

To do this kind of hair; it’s super easy. I just personally use bobby pins to pin those curls, while they cool. About 20 minutes, and then you take them out and they last forever. My hair is super fine and super long, this sort of technique seems to work better than hot rollers. To get it more like Candace’s hair, just brush your hair with your fingers after taking the curls out. 

Makeup: 

Nails: A really pretty gold foil nail!

Jewelry: Statement earrings, that aren’t too “bling”

Target: $12.99 http://www.target.com/p/post-top-earrings-with-gem-drop-clear-gold/-/A-14752203#prodSlot=large_1_28 

Purse: a cute gold envelope clutch

$24, fashion junkee http://www.fashionjunkee.com/Metallic-Thin-Medium-Envelope-Clutch-Purse-Gold_p_5252.html

Hope this helps!
