Five Essential Beauty Tips for Prom

What Kind of Prom Dress Fits Your Personality?

Alas, prom season has arrived! We want your prom night to be fun and worry free and the last thing that should stress you out is your makeup! Here are five easy tips to follow to make sure you look and feel your best on the big night!

Keep It Simple: Play up either your eyes or your mouth. Picking one to focus on and downplaying the other is the key to looking fabulous! Pick which feature you prefer, or if you don't know — ask your friends. If you love your lips, go with shades of dark red or pink. Think Angelina Jolie. Then make sure to keep your eye makeup soft. If you love your eyes, play them up with liner, shadow, and mascara! If you do this, then just keep your lips light. For example, nude with a little gloss works great.

Create a Flawless Canvas: Picking the right foundation is key. You can tell when you apply the foundation lightly over your face. After you blend it into your jaw line or hairline and there's still a line, or it clearly doesn't match your neck — it's the wrong color. Remember the secret to foundation is to look like you're not wearing any at all.

Bring the Essentials: When it's time for pictures — use blotting papers on the oiliest parts of your face (usually the forehead, chin, and nose). This will reduce any shine.

Keep It You: Be sure to reflect yourself in your look. Don't feel like you have to change everything about you for one night of glamour. If you feel more comfortable with a certain look for your eye, then do your makeup that way. No matter how beautiful you look — if you aren't comfortable, it will show.

Practice Makes Perfect: You want to be confident and have fun! If you're still unsure of how you want your makeup to look, check out your favorite magazines for inspiration. Don't be afraid to mimic looks featured on all your favorite celebs. Often times, the magazine even prints the brand of cosmetics used for the look to make it totally easy. You can even host a pre-prom event and invite your girlfriends over for a night of practice. This way, there's no doubt you'll get your look just right for the big day.
