About bloody time too Megan - if I'm honest, my prom was on the May 24th, as in almost three weeks ago. Oops! But I thought better late than never...

The Dress
My dress was from a boutique called Zeleb in London which I found online in about September and have been in love with ever since! You can find it here and I got mine in size 8. It cost £299 when I got it, which was a bit more than I wanted to pay but I think it was worth it! One this that I was not impressed with however was the delivery, when you've paid almost £300 for a dress, you expect it to come within the two weeks promised, not over three! I'm just glad I ordered it over a month in advance.

The Accessories
My bangle was from Ebay for 99p but the seller has removed it :( I was very paranoid that due to how cheap it was, that the bracelet was prone to snapping half as it was very mouldable, but it stayed in shape all night, I was very impressed!
The clutch bag was from Next but I can't seem to find it on there anymore, although they do similar ones such as this for £24. It was big enough to fit not only all of my stuff, but two of my friends' too! Although I liked the fact it had a strap, I did only end up using it as a clutch.
My shoes were also from Next - a massive 11cm heel - for £38 here. They were surprisingly comfortable to walk in (for 6 hours!) and I got so many compliments on them! Admittedly, I did have to walk around the house in them for a few days beforehand to break them in but honestly, when you own shoes that pretty, why would you not want to wear them as much as possible?!

The Make-Up
I got ready at my friend Shannon's house with a few of our friends and I ended up doing most of their make up, so I may be confusing some of these products with what I used on them, but this is my best guess! 
First I primed my face with Bare Minerals' Prime Time and then for foundation I used my trusty Revlon ColourStay in 150 Buff because unlike most girls, I decided against fake tanning and wanted a foundation that really matched my skin tone. For concealer I of course used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 Fair. I used Benefit's Hoola bronzer to contour with and used Dainty Doll's powder blush in 004 to give my cheeks some colour.
For my eyes, I used Maybelline's 24hr Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold across the lid, put some of UD's Bootycall (from the Naked 2 palette) in the inner corner and blending some of Busted (from the same palette) through the crease and below the lower lash line slightly. I used a combination of Benefit's They're Real! Mascara and Max Factor's Waterproof Masterpiece Mascara because I really like the length and volume that They're Real! gives but I wanted to wear waterproof just in case any tears appeared - which I think they did at one point.
I'd be lying if I said I knew what lip colour I wore in the end, if I wore one at all? I know I definitely applied some of Nip and Fab's Mango Smoothie Lip Butter and took it to prom with me to keep my lips hydrated, but I have a feeling that might have been it, product wise!

And now for some pictures...

The girls!

Yes, my mum did manage to take a picture of us snapchatting...

And shoutout to Olivia from Olivia's Word (third from the right, gorgeous cream dress) - go tell her to write a post about prom too!

Overall it was such a lovely night and whilst I'm sad to say goodbye to everyone, it didn't feel real since we've had two more weeks of school after then! Everyone looked absolutely gorgeous, our year definitely shape up well.
