When it comes to prom makeup, you want your look to be as memorable as your evening. It can take weeks to find the perfect dress, it is no wonder that so many have trouble coming up with ideas on what to do when it comes to cosmetics for the big night. The good news is that you can combine your own style with that of the hottest trends to make you stand out in the crowd.
Kate Middleton has a makeup look that is classic and natural looking. Even on her wedding day, the princess stayed with her timeless look. For you to do this for your prom makeup, you are going to want to make sure that you are going for neutral tones that are going to compliment your skin tone. A cream blush that will give you a slightly flushed look will work well. Black eye liner and black mascara is going to define your features and help you to look great on the big night.
Take the smoky eye look to the next level. Choose colors that are going to compliment the dress that you are going to wear. You can build a smoky look for your eyes in any color based. If you are going with something in the purples, you would put a light lavender shade from the lash line all the way up to the eyebrow. You can then use a deep plum on the eye lid and blend it until it disappears up into the lavender shade.
You do not want your lipstick to come off after the first drink that you take at the prom. The all day lip colors can look a bit dry and glossy looks are in right now. You can have the best of both worlds. Use a product like CoverGirl Outlast Lip Color as your base. Instead of putting on their top coat, you can use a lip gloss that you like to highlight your lips. By doing this for your prom makeup, you are going to be sure that you will not spend all your time in the bathroom reapplying your lipstick.
