So, it's prom season! You're looking forward to a night of partying with your best friends and looking glam - but how exactly are you going to have your makeup?
Hollywood Glam has always proved to be a popular look for prom – after all, who doesn’t want to look like they’re about to walk down the red carpet? Opt for classic winged liner, red lips and a subtle rose blush. This makeup paired with beautiful wavy hair and a Gatsby-style dress will have the paparazzi falling at your feet. Don’t forget your favourite pair of pearl earrings!
If you think of yourself as more of a free spirit and want to give off Coachella vibes this prom season, opt for a gold shimmer all over the lid. Less is more when it comes to boho beauty, so keep your face looking dewy and fresh by using a minimal amount of foundation and powder and a liquid highlighter on your cheekbones and cupid’s bow. If you’re not too sure about your hair, festival style braids and a head chain are always a great option.
Want to look glamorous, but don’t want to go as full on with your makeup as a Hollywood glam look? Soft glam is for you. It still involves quite a lot of makeup, but sticks to more of a neutral colour palette. Think a strong contour and highlight, defined brows, nude lips and smokey taupe eyes. This is a super sophisticated makeup look and will have you turning heads all night long at your prom.
If you like to be a bit flashy with your makeup, go for a more edgy look. Graphic liner and bright colours may be something you want to experiment with for your prom. Matching your eye shadow to your dress can be a great way to give your makeup an edge, or if you’re wearing black or white to your prom, mix it up with a random pop of colour on your eyes or in your hair. Another way to make your makeup look edgier is to go super light on the eyes and skin and then rock a dark, statement lip – dark brown or even black can work great for this.
