Prom makeup guide

Prom night is a special occasion and most girls would be eager to get their makeup done to perfection. You can think of having your makeup professionally applied. But ensure that you have a trial done in advance so that you can choose the kind of makeup you are comfortable in. Typically prom makeup costs about $30 to $50. Do not blindly follow fashion trends. Let your makeup reflect the kind of personality you are.

Whether you want to be soft and romantic or wild and dramatic, your prom makeup can be matched to your dress and hairstyle. Take into account your features; bone structure, skin tone and hairstyle when trying out the perfect look for prom night. Though you are going to be really excited about it and will probably spend hours with friends discussing your makeup and dress, give yourself enough sleep to banish those tired eyes. Some departmental stores or salons offer consultation and advice on prom makeup.

You need to check for a foundation that matches your skin tone. Choose a foundation that doesn't give you a chalky look but lends a healthy and radiant glow. Don't ignore problem areas such as dark circles under the eyes. Blend the foundation well into your neck and hairline. Use matte powder to eliminate shine. This always serves well to look your best in the photographs. You can look back on them years down the line and still marvel at how wonderful you looked. The trick lies in using just enough powder and not look caked up.

Prom makeup tips

You can get yourself all set for prom night by doing your makeup yourself. Try out tips and tricks to highlight your best features and get all set to dazzle at the party. An excellent makeup tip for this prom is to sport nude colored lips. When this look is complemented with smoky eyes, the overall effect is stylish.

A glamorous look is trendy this prom season. You can coat your eyes with natural shades like gold and beige and use dark liner along the lashes. Go in for long fake eyelashes to make your eyes stand out. Black or brown mascara flatters most skin tones. A touch of vanilla eye shadow on your brow bone and your eyes can work their magic! Don't go overboard in your makeup. Overly applied blush can leave you looking ghastly. Brush off excess blush with a cotton ball.

A dusting of pink blush should suffice for young skins. Fill in holes in the brow with the brow pencil but do so with tiny strokes to appear natural. Clean up excess mascara that is smeared by wet lashes above and below the eyes. Use foundation wisely to hide blemishes and create an even skin tone. You can go in for cranberry, warm caramel or cocoa colored gloss for stunningly luscious lips. Complement your make up to suit your dress and hairstyle. Some glitter powder to your bare arms, shoulder and back can complete the entire look.
