3 Wild and Unusual Prom Makeup Look
The days of buying prepared prom makeup kits and playing with colors to create an eye-catching look are gone. Today, there are numerous ways to create the eye-catching, natural looks you want for that special night.
Whether you’re planning for your own prom, at homecoming, an indoor or outdoor competition, or any other formal occasion, it’s important to imagine how your makeup, eyeliner, blush, makeup brushes, and lipstick will elevate your overall appearance.
With these guidelines in mind, you’ll find it much easier to find the perfect look that flatters your best features and reveals the personality you want to shine through.
One of the most popular natural prom makeup looks is highlighted eyelashes. Long, cascading lashes are ideal for this season’s theme of night and romance, so invest in some highlighters to define your eye color and bring out your eyelashes.
Short lashes are also beautiful for this year’s style, especially if you opt for colors that contrast with your natural skin tone. Consider neutral tones or natural pale shades for your base eye shadow; blue, green, and cream are all popular choices.
To complete your eye makeup, highlighters can be applied throughout the entire evening. Apply highlighter to the apples of your eyes, along with the inner corners for extra pop.
To apply eyeliner to your upper and lower lids, use a small brush and put a light amount on your brush. For extra darkness, try using a pencil of brown or black ink.
When applying makeup to your lips, it’s important to choose moisturizing lip gloss that matches your facial shade. For a cool look, try applying a soft pink lipstick to your lips.
This is another great way to highlight your eyes and lips; a dark pink or rose gold will work equally well. You can even use a lip gloss with a hint of blushing to add an exciting rose gold look to your natural makeup look.
Other exciting makeup looks include a bold coral lipstick for your lips, and a striking gold or silver liner to your eyes. Choose a neutral, cool-toned color for your dress and highlight your cheekbones and jawline with a bold colored liner.
Finish your look off with a pretty statement jewelry that matches your dress – bracelets, earrings, and a wide-brimmed hat are all options that will brighten up your prom night.
If you don’t want to wear a bright color, you also have other options such as using a green dress and a neutral or nude lipstick. This look is a great for spring or summer proms because green goes well with just about everything.
Wear a bold, nude lip gloss and use a nude eye shadow to frame your face. Then top off your look with a pretty statement necklace, a pair of earrings, and your hair in a messy bun. With this natural makeup application, you’ll be ready to dazzle on your special night!
