Welcome back to my blog. I’m sorry for not posting last week, I was busy and at a loss of post ideas. I do know prom season is finally here and in my area, most schools have already had their prom, but if you live in a different area or state or country and you still don’t know what to do for prom, then keep reading for simple makeup you can do at home!
Look #1: The Eyes that match the dress
This look mostly revolves around the eyes, you can do what ever else you want for this look. This is more of a last minute kind of eye look if you don’t really know what to do. If your dress is blue you can do an ombre blue eye look. This look is totally up to you and how you want to approach this eye look.
Look #2: The Photogenic Look
I recommend you use photogenic foundation, my favorite is from NYX but it is $17, if you can’t find or afford photogenic makeup, just try to find foundation that doesn’t have any SPF in it, because during your prom pictures you’ll get flash back and you don’t want that. I also recommend you avoid baking your face and avoid powder because that also causes flash back. However, if you want a glowy kind of look, use any kind of highlighter and apply a small amount on to your cheek bones, and also add some highlight to your arms so they look shiny (but not oily). Next, you just contour your cheeks like always using what ever bronzer/contour you want and if you want to, contour your arms so in your pictures they’ll look more muscular.
Look #3: The Nude Eyes
The final look for this entry- the safe look which is the nudes. Follow the same steps as Look #2 for the face, but for your eyelids, just apply some nude colors from your favorite nude palette, the shadows can be shimmery or matte, apply a nice thick wing to your eyeshadow, if you want to do something on your lower-lashline, I recommend you only use black eyeliner and do not use eyeshadow on the lower-lashline because in your pictures it can give the effect that you were crying and you definitely don’t want to cry on the night of prom.
There you guys go, my first and probably only prom entry. I hope you all have/had fun at prom! I hope you guys liked these look ideas, you can always use them for other events that involve pictures with flash being taken because you definitely don’t want flashback!
