Make-up is a very big part of prom.
It is the night you want to put your best face forward and look your best.
Therefore, it is very likely that you will want to wear make-up and do it right.
You’ve probably heard that you shouldn’t wear too much make up.
This is very true; with make up less is always the way to go. But there are also very many different trends to choose from and if you are confused about which one will look best, the following guide should help.
Choose to highlight your eyes or your mouth but never both
One of the most common mistakes that you can make and many people make is to try and highlight their lips and eyes.
If you want your make up to look tasteful you will pick one of the two and downplay the other.
If you are slightly confused about which one to pick, the choice is very easy; pick the one you are complimented on the most.
If people tell you that you have nice eyes, they are probably the best feature on your face and you want to apply makeup that will highlight your eyes.
Whatever color you choose just be sure to pick an evening shade. With your eyes, you should go all out.
You can wear shadow, liner, mascara and even fake lashes but only if you know how to keep them looking natural.
The Smoky eye is a very good look for prom. Just be sure to get a professional to do it or if you will be doing it yourself, ensure you know how to.
Make it look like you are not wearing any make-up
You want to look natural even though you are wearing make-up.
The secret to making it look like you are hardly wearing any make-up is to keep your skin flawless.
Achieving a flawless face is very easy, you do it using foundation.
Foundation is a girl’s bet friend when it comes to the perfect makeup.
If you have acne and uneven skin tone, foundation and concealer can cover these flaws up to give you a perfect skin tone.
There are rules to using foundation and concealer though. For starters ensure that you buy a foundation that suits your skin tone.
Instead, try department stores that allow you to test the foundation before purchasing.
