Learning the Face-ics, Special Edition: Prom!

Part Two: Lips like whoa.

Here's the pic she promised in the video.

Here’s the pic she promised in the video.

Last week, Amy Rose showed you how to transform yourself into a classic Hollywood bombshell for the prom, or the Taco Bell drive-through, or the very special occasion of your choosing. Now she’s back to teach you an easier, but just as babely, look: neutral eye makeup paired with POW! lips.

The products you choose will vary depending on skin tone/type and your personal preference, but Amy Rose used:

  • Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Motion ($6,
  • Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in White ($21, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics)
  • e.l.f. Professional Blending Eye Brush ($1.50,
  • Essence of Beauty Face Brushes ($10, CVS)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ Lip Tar in Grandma ($18,

Tune in next week for Prom Look Number 3: Glittery Eyes. ♦

    I just started watching this, and I’m not even two minutes in, but can I just say that your cat is fabulous. He just seems so chill. Can I borrow him? Also, these videos are really bitchin’ and you have allowed me to put a bunch of stuff on my face and be proud of it. So kudos to you, because I was completely makeup-illiterate. So thanks, and I want to be friends with your cat.

    Amy Rose, you are amazing. These videos are genius with a capital ‘G’. In fact, they’re probably the best make-up tutorials on the web, considering that they’re among the few that actually manage to teach me anything.

      Yes, please! Or generally, a post about ethical cosmetics? I’ve recently become interested in makeup (I had never worn it before), but it’s so hard to find anything because I’ll only buy it if it’s not made in a sweatshop, not tested on animals, doesn’t have too many harmful chemicals, is generally environmentally friendly, and is made in an LGBTQ-friendly workplace. I guess I have higher standards for makeup because it doesn’t seem like a necessity in any way (as opposed to clothes), so I don’t want to support human rights violations and environmental destruction for something I don’t even need. Also, I’m sorry if this comes across as self-righteous or judgemental in any way. That really isn’t my intent, and I know that being able to think this much about the ethics of a product is a privilege in itself.
