Look Smashing in These Glam Prom Makeup Looks

Glamorous Prom Makeup Looks
At long last, prom is around the corner. 'Tis the season for looking your best ever and these makeup ideas will help you do just that. Try on prom makeup in our virtual makeup studio.

The most sultry and versatile of all prom makeup looks, dark eyes and a light pout transition effortlessly from dinner to the dancefloor. Opt for dark shades of chocolate shadow and if you really want to be festive, you can work the glitter and sparkles. On your lids. On your brow bone. On your cheeks.

Eyes are obviously the focal point of this prom makeup look, so line them with black pencil liner, follow with black liquid liner, and top it off with a layer of smudged shadow to give your prom makeup maximum staying power and depth.

When eyes are this dark and smoldering, eyebrows should be sculpted with a pencil or powder and you should apply foundation and blush more generously than you would for day time. A creamy pale lip in a luminescent peach tone complements all skin tones, or you can opt for a light pink lipstick to channel Brigitte Bardot.

Since this glamorous prom makeup is all about the lips, exfoliate them gently (a facial scrub ought to do the trick) and follow with a moisturizing lip balm. Do this every evening in the days leading up to your prom for a pristine, pillowy pout. Even out your skin tone with foundation, and sweep a bit of bronzer on the temples, cheeks and forehead. Light eyes require only mascara and an optional hint of shadow at the crease, and you can add a pretty sheen by using a pearly shadow on the brow bone or lids.

Outline your lips with a pencil that matches your natural lip color, and fill in your pout with red lipstick (or a similarly bright color of your choice). Paint it on with a lip brush for a precise, satin-like finish and kiss-proof it with a light dusting of powder, followed by another coat of color in preparation for those stolen moments on the dance floor.

If ultra-glam prom makeup is your goal, strive for a perfect, albeit natural-looking canvas by applying liquid foundation with a brush. Skin takes on a smooth, velvety appearance with both medium-coverage concealer and foundation—both of which can be blended with your finger tips or a sponge. Turn to blush and bronzer to warm up your face since dark lips can washout fair or medium-toned skin.

Dress up your eyes with dark brown, black or metallic charcoal shadows, which necessitate plenty of blending with an eyeshadow brush (keep the lid and brow bone pale to avoid a sooty look). FYI: an opaque, snow white shadow can be an equally dramatic alternative to black when applied on the lid. And, of course, false eyelashes and volumizing mascara are a must. --Stephanie Simons
