Some girls may be able to go to professionals and get their make up done. For everyone who chooses to go at it alone or who waited to late and can’t get it done professionally, here are a few tips and tricks that will make you look even more beautiful. You will need to determine if you want to go full on makeup or go for the natural look. For prom night, most will want to go all out with everything.
Make sure before you start putting on any make up that your face is cleaned and well moisturized. Remember that you should get your dress on before you put on your make up, if at all possible. You don’t want to have to pull a dress on over your beautifully made up face.
The first thing you should always do is determine which feature you want to accentuate. Which feature do you really want to shine? This is a rather simple step, pick your best feature. Do people often compliment you on your eyes…then you work with that. If you are often told of your beautiful smile…work with you lips.
When picking prom make-up, go bold. If you want to play up your eyes, use liner, shadow, mascara, and false eyelashes (find the correct way to put them on by using them only at the end of your eye). This would be a perfect time to give the smokey eye a try. Look at my previous post for how to’s on this technique. You may also want to try and match your eye makeup with your prom dress, go for shimmery eye shadows. Which ever way you choose to play up those eyes, make sure you play down your lips. Use a soft color with gloss for your lips. If lips are what you want to show, then go for bright colors that look nice with your dress and go simple with your eye make-up.
For foundation, if you need it, use it only to cover blemishes. Go to the mall and let the women at the make up counters help you with the colors you want to buy. Let them put the make up on you to find your perfect color. Apply some cream blush to the apples of your cheeks to give your face a touch of color.
