Top 10 Picks for Prom Dresses!

Today I will be sharing with you my top 10 picks for prom dresses! These are all from the Prom Dresses Canada collection from PICKEDRESSES!

Let’s get on to it!


Trumpet/Mermaid Scalloped Floor-length Lace Draped Prom Dresses – seriously, how GORGEOUS is this dress? It’s a combination of classy, mysterious and beautiful all in one! I would totally pair this off with a gorgeous pin curl updo, and for the makeup, I’d love to wear this with a smoky brown eye makeup, flirty lashes, and a ruby red lip color. I can totally picture it right now!


A-line Sweetheart Short/Mini Organza Appliques Prom Dresses – this dress is super pretty and is a cinch to make anyone look radiant and blooming! I love how fresh it looks and how a natural makeup look would go with it.



A-line V-neck Floor-length Chiffon Appliques Prom Dresses – another one of those classy long gowns you’d like to try on! The details on the shoulder strap area and the backing is really gorgeous and makes the dress not too boring and not too overdone.


Trumpet/Mermaid Scoop Floor-length Sequined Rhinestone Prom Dresses – I like this gold number primarily for its eye catching color, and secondly, its beautiful detailing! A classic makeup look would definitely go with this one.


Sheath/Column One Shoulder Floor-length Silk-like Satin Beading Prom Dresses – this long gown is a little bit more daring than usual, but the color is definitely gorgeous! I also like the beading design.


Empire Sweetheart Sweep Train Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses – I love how this dress flows freely on the bottom! It’s just one of those gown that never go out of style!


A-line Sweetheart Sweep Train Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses – of course, the classic red gown will always be on the top 10!


Empire Sweetheart Floor-length Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses – another classy dress you want to consider wearing! Isn’t it just beautiful?! Blue is not really my color, but I fell in love with this! The gorgeous beading sold me.


Sheath/Column Sweetheart Floor-length Tulle Beading Prom Dresses – eye catching, you say? This number is definitely it!


Sheath/Column Straps Ankle-length Chiffon Ruched Prom Dresses – the last one on my Top 10 List is this simple, yet pretty gown that has a unique design on the front part making it one of those gowns that you must definitely check out!

Hope you enjoyed my Top 10! Go over to the site and let me know what YOUR top picks are! :)

Plan Your Perfect Prom! (Makeup and Dresses)

I featured a bunch of prom dresses from my last post, and this time, I’ll be giving you more options to choose from!

I know that prom is months away (at least here in the Philippines), but it won’t hurt to plan early, right?

Aside from hair and makeup, the dress is one of the MOST IMPORTANT part of prom. You’re going to be taking lots of photos throughout the night, and you wanna make sure that you have on the perfect dress—on that you will never forget! In this post, I will share with you makeup ideas that can go with each gown/dress.

Through Pickedresses, you will find a whole new collection in the Montreal Prom Dresses tab!

Here are a few of my favorites! It’s really difficult to choose only ONE favorite of mine, because there’s so many gorgeous dresses from this collection!


Sheath/Column Sweetheart Floor-length Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses

This gown just screams ELEGANCE! Look how beautiful it sways and the perfect beading! This dress would totally be perfect, not just for prom, but formal events, as well.

I picture a smoky eye look with a precise cat eye, subtle contouring, and to top it all off, a deep red color to pair this dress off with.


Empire Sweetheart Sweep Train Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses

This dress would make any woman look dreamy! I love the dainty details and the soft salmon color.

A simple dress calls for a simple yet made up makeup look! Flawless base, with a dash of a subtle coral blush, contouring, gold and brown on the eyes, flirty lashes, and a soft pink lip color to finish.


Empire Straps Floor-length Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses

Another red ensemble you might wanna try! You’ll look like a royal princess in this number!

A nude lipstick would make this dress stand out. Keeping everything else minimal.


A-line Bateau Floor-length Chiffon Beading Prom Dresses

This gown would make an angel out of you! The soft and delicate beading and design would go perfectly with a soft smoky brown makeup look and a carnation-toned lip color.

A radiant makeup look will be perfect with this dress. Think of highlights & shimmer!


Sheath/Column Bateau Floor-length Chiffon Ruffles Prom Dresses

I also laid my eyes on this gorgeous gown! If you’re into classic, elegant designs, this is a definite pick!

Classy dress = classy makeup. No need to go crazy on eye shadow. A simple brown smoky eye makeup + nude coral lips will be perfect for this dress.


A-line Scoop Short/Mini Tulle Beading Prom Dresses

If you want to wear a classic white colored dress, you might consider wearing this! It’s a beautiful dress with intricate detailing which is a cinch to turn heads at prom!

Since you’re wearing white, this is the time to put on the reddest lip color you have! It will definitely stand out!

Find more dresses at Montreal Prom Dresses!

I’d be happy to give you an idea of what makeup you should wear.

Christmas Makeup look (Berry Lips)


Hi everyone! I’m road testing new lighting equipment, and I would appreciate your feedback via the comments on the video and/or this blog post. :) I filmed a simple Christmas Makeup look which I think I’ll be wearing this year!

Product list:

The following all from
MISTINE Platinum Super Powder (Shade S3)
MISTINE Brows Secret 3D Brows
MISTINE Super Black Eyeliner
MISTINE Supermodel Maximum Fast Lash Extensions

Other products -
Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit
4U2 Pixie Dust
NYX Butter Lipstick in Licorice
Maybelline Lip Polish Glam6
NYX Matt Bronzing Powder
City Color Blush (Papaya)



I already had foundation on (Pro Studio Foundation Palette) and used this Mistine Platinum Powder to mattify my entire face. The shade S3 fits my skintone perfectly, and it gives flawless coverage.


You may opt to use the sponge applicator that it comes with, or a powder brush.


My next favorite Mistine product in this tutorial is the Brows Secret 3D Brows!!! Why?


The packaging is so gorgeous.


It comes with a brow pencil…


I use this to outline my brows!


It also comes with a brow powder…


…which I use to fill in my brows.


And lastly, it also has a tinted brow gel!!!


Seriously. A 3-in-1 brow product?! AMAZING!


I contoured my crease using the same brow pencil


Next, used a pencil brush and a brown powder to soften the crease.


You gotta blend!!!


LOVED this creaseless cream shadow from Benefit! Just apply this on the center of the lids.


You know you gotta blend again!


A little pixie dust on the inner corners of your eyes won’t hurt.


Yes, Mistine also has a Super Black Eyeliner! Look how precise the line is!


Say Eyelash Curler to curl those lashes!


Mistine’s Super Model Mascara is another thing you should check out.


First you use the Extension Lash…


And then apply the LASH FIBERS!!!


And finish off with the Extension Lash again. It creates an illusion of super long lashes!!! Even without false mascara! <3


Time to contour!


Add blush!


And finish off with this gorgeous lip color from NYX called Licorice.


A little gloss won’t hurt. It’s super perfect for the holiday!


Hope you enjoyed!

P.S. My eyes got a little watery and red from all the light.

Don’t forget to leave your comments! DEC Commenter of the Month will be announced by the end of December! :)
