Prom Look: Chic & Girly

Prom Look: Chic and Girly

Hey everyone, 
Today's prom post is based on the dress that could have been.  Not for me, but for one of my really good friends.  She went out to purchase a prom dress last week, and came across this stunning BCBG sequined cocktail dress. She decided to get a different dress (which looks absolutely beautiful on her, I couldn't picture her in a better dress!) so i thought i would create a girly and chic look based on the little beauty she left behind.

MissCouture17 Layout Change...AGAIN!

Hey Everyone,
You may have noticed that yesterday I completely redid my blog layout.  I seem to do this every couple seasons, now that I think about it haha.  Anyway, I felt like it was kind of boring to look at when my readers first came to my blog, so I changed the background and the colour scheme to make it more visually appealing.  I really want your opinions about this change though - did you prefer the old layout or do you like this one better?  Thanks for your opinions!!

By the way, I have two really big essays due next Monday so my blog posts will be pretty limited until then.  Thank you for your understanding!!

Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Color - Punch Drunk: Review & Swatches

Hey everyone,
 A look i've really been digging lately is a fresh, natural face of makeup, applying Urban Decay's 'Sin' eye shadow all over my lid, inner corner and along the inner third of my bottom lash line and applying a really bright, fun lip color.  A few months ago I picked up a couple of the UD Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colors in Fbomb and Punch Drunk and lately, Punch Drunk has become the colour to reach for when I want a bright, unexpected lip color to go with the rest of my natural makeup.

Prom How To: Perfume 101

 Hey Everyone,
For today's prom post I wanted to share with you all a few perfume tips as well as share a few of my personal favourite perfumes for prom.  If you have been following my prom series this month, than you've probably noticed that I include a perfume with all of my 'Prom Looks'.  Perfume, in my opinion, is a very important invisible accessory.  Perfume can completely change the overall vibe of an ensemble and give the wearer a total confidence boost.  As well, it's a strong memory trigger.  If you have a signature scent, whenever someone smells it they'll instantly think of you, whether you are there or not.  So, I think perfume is just as important as any other prom accessory and should be well thought out ahead of time.

Below i am going to share with you all a few tips for applying your perfume and share with you my top 5 perfumes for prom!

Prom Look: Romantic & Classic

Prom Look: Romantic and Classic

Hey Everyone,

March Favourites!

 Hey Everyone,
It is time for my March favourites, and I can't believe how fast March flew by.  It may have been because of the March Break and how hectic everything has been for me lately but I just feel like the month just began and now it's already April.  It's absolutely crazy, and I know that April will fly by just as fast. Anyway!  This month for me was all about rediscovering things in my current makeup collection as well as just using the basics in the morning and really learning to use one makeup brush for multiple things instead of using like, 6 different brushes.  I'm usually able to take my time in the morning with my makeup but as I learned this month, time is a luxury that I just didn't have with all the assignments and other important stuff going on.  So, without further adieu and after that long rant, let's get started!

Revlon Lip Butters: Review & Swatches!

Hey Everyone,
I'm definitely a little late on the bandwagon here, but a couple months ago I managed to pick up three of the Revlon lip butters.  After the internet exploded with raves about this particular product I knew I had to go out and test them for myself when they came out in Canada.  I've been alternating between these three lip butters religiously, so I thought i'd write a quick review to talk about my thoughts on them.

Look How Fast The Time Has Flown: Prom Dress 2012!

Sorry this picture is such bad quality, taken/cropped on my iPad
 Hey everyone!
So, after months and months of procrastination I finally decided to go out and purchase myself a prom dress.  I spent hours with a very kind employee with fabulously bright lipstick at Want Boutique trying on oodles of prom dresses.  After a lot of consideration, i decided that I wanted one that would stand out...something unique, and fun.
