Prom Makeup Tips, How To Look Fabulous for Prom!
High school prom is something that every girl will remember for the rest of their life. It’s a time to say goodbye to classmates, teachers, friends and essentially a part of your life. However, to have the most enjoyable and memorable prom experience, you need to look your best. This means choosing the right dress, styling your hair, and of course doing your makeup. Here, we’ll reveal some secrets on how to have the perfect makeup for prom.
Preparing your face for makeup starts long before the evening of your prom. For at least 2 weeks prior, you should cleanse and moisturize your face nightly with the occasional exfoliation treatment to prevent buildups of dirt and oil. This will help promote health skin which will be easier to use makeup on during prom night.
No matter how much facial cleaner you use, sometimes luck just isn’t on your side. If you wake up on the morning of your prom and notice a pimple or acne, don’t worry – makeup is used for both enhancing your look and to conceal such blemishes. To cover them up, you’ll need to use a concealer that’s identical to your skin tone around the blemish. Look for a solid-base concealer that’s going to stay on while you’re active and dancing during the prom. If you choose something like a liquid, it’s likely to start running off halfway through the night.
The next step in preparing your makeup for prom is to lay the proper foundation. There are several different kinds of foundation and choosing the right one is important. If you need help, go to the makeup counter at a department store and ask for advice, as they will likely be able to point you in the right direction. One of the latest forms of foundation, mineral, is a popular choice because it’s lightly brushed on and creates a soft, elegant look that lasts the entire day or night.
Many young girls forget the importance of eye makeup when getting ready for their prom. The truth is that the eyes are one of your most prominent features and enhancing them with makeup is crucial to developing your overall appearance. So which colors should you use on your eyes? Take a look at your dress, shoes and accessories and stick with an eye color that either matches or contrasts your outfit. If you’re wearing a blue dress, try a light layer of blue.
Preparing your lips is also just as important as your eyes. If it’s done wrong, it can really look like a disaster, but your lips are done properly, they will flow with the rest of your look. You want to stick with an overall theme or color style with your look, and your lips should be a part of it. Choose a color that flows with the rest of your outfit and makeup and choose a thin layer of light, glossy lipstick. This should be enough to complete the look without giving an over-the-top appearance.
