Your Prom Makeup Guide

So you’ve found the dress, but now you need to plan the accessories, hair, and, of course, makeup! It’s always a good idea to do a test run on your makeup before a big event, so you don’t waste any time or tears on the mess-ups.  Depending on your style, personality, and dress, the make-up look you choose can really vary!  Luckily, we’ve created a guide to the makeup look basics that are gorgeous on any girl and definitely on trend this year!

Here is our list of favorite make-up looks we like to see on prom girls on the big night!


The Matte Look:

Channel your inner Kardashian and rock this makeup with just about any style dress. With a sleek or dark colored dress, this is definitely a safe bet to keep the whole look put together!  Keep the colors natural, contour, and don’t forget the a nude lip!


The Smokey Eye:

Selena rocks this one best, and it is stunning for any night time look! Keep the face and lips simple, and go crazy on your eyes! This eyeshadow looks especially stunning with some long lashes!


Boho Chic:

For the bohemian, lacey dresses, this look is absolutely beautiful! Keep the eyes a simple, neutral shadow color, and add that deep lip.


The Bold Lip:

Oh how we love love love this trend! The bold lip is perfect with a more natural eye and face makeup, and those long lashes! Taylor always has a shows a good red color, and this is perfect for white or black dresses!

Glow Up:

Stick to the natural look but go all out on the highlighter! We’re talkin cheekbones, brows, nose, chin…all heightened areas on your face! This look is so gorgeous and great for a metallic look!

Go Natural:

The most important thing to remember when planning your makeup is to be yourself! If you love to go all out and feel most confident with that bold lip and smokey eye, then do it! But if you’re not comfortable with that look, natural is always a good idea! A natural eye color, mascara, and lip gloss, and you’re ready to go!
