Now that you’ve got your dress, shoes, bag, and have your hair appointment booked, it’s time to start thinking about your prom makeup. While your dress will be sure to have people oohing and ahhing at prom, you’ll want to make sure your makeup will perfectly accentuate the look you’re going for. So to give you some inspiration, here are 8 of the best makeup looks for prom:
1. Fire Engine Red
Take a page from T. Swift’s book and go glam with a fire engine red lip for prom. You’ll need a lip primer, lip pencil, and a matte lipstick to round out the look.
2. All About the Eyes
Scarlett Johansson’s perfectly ombred eyeshadow is giving us some serious eye game envy. This look is perfect for girls that want to have a subtle lip and foundation base to make the eyes be the #1 focus.
While this look might be a little much for prom night, we love the idea of a lavender eye paired with a subtle pink lip. The combo screams etherial and will be the perfect balance to top off any light colored gown.
4. The Fuller the Better
If you’re a fan of bold lashes, you’ll want to emulate Carrie Underwood’s luxurious lash look come prom night. You’ll need a good set of fake lashes, some eyelash glue, and a whole lot of mascara and eyeliner to round out this night-approved look.
If you love a little lip color, but are afraid to go deep red, this look is for you! This look sports a topaz-bronze smokey eye with touches of pink at the center, paired with perfectly penciled brows, luscious lashes, and a raspberry lip to top it off.
6. Vamp It Up
What better day to have some fun with your makeup than prom night? We love Shay Mitchell’s play on the dark side with her scarlet lips and dark eye makeup.
7. Au Naturel
Actress Margot Robbie’s natural look is perfect for prom. If you’re more into having your dress do the showing off for you, then stick with a natural matte lipstick, subtle cheek tint, and a simple line of eyeliner on top.
Bronzer might just become your new best friend come prom time. Since it’s a little early to have a glowing summer tan, get the look below with a good bronzer and a matching eyeshadow.
