Prom season is here and I've put together some looks that should suit most everyone. From intense color, to classic makeup, smokey eyes, and of course glitter!
This look is a blue smokey eye with glitter. You could of course not use the glitter though. It's warmed up in the crease with orange tones to keep it from looking like a bruise.
Products are as follows:
Makeup Geek: Boo Berry as the navy base. Pegasus in the inner corner. Corrupt as definition in the outer corner. Curfew a purple in the low crease, then Poppy an orange shade for warmth with a big fluffy brush so that it's just a touch of warmth. Poolside is the lower lash line and then Boo Berry on the outer half.
Glitter is Glitter Injections in Peacock. You could use almost any glitter though that has blue along other colors of glitter in them.
House of Lashes Smokey Muse lashes.
This look is super dark with chunky glitter and a harsh wing. You could use tape to get that harsh line but I don't like that method. I prefer to sketch it out with an angled brush and then liner. If there are any mistakes I use the angled brush to clean them up by dipping it in makeup remover.
Makeup Geek Corrupt on the lid. Mocha and Cocoa Bear in the crease which are browns and then Chickadee which is a very light orange is the transition shade.
Beauty Bar Baby glitter in Champagne Cocktail on he inner part of the lid.
Lips are Colour Pop Rayezor
This is a timeless, classic look. With the red lip and matte grey smokey eye. It's beefed up some with the winged liner.
Smashbox Cosmetics Art. Love. Color. (I think that's how it goes. lol) all matte grey shadows.
Colour Pop gel liner in Swerve
Violet Voss Vamptress lashes
Colour Pop Succulent on the lips
This look is a smokey neutral halo eye. It's dramatic but not incredibly uniform and clean cut. There is no liner with this and you don't have to be so careful blending because not a lot of colors are being used. It's still a great neutral brown smokey eye that works for anything. You could easily change the center color to whatever you want like a more yellow gold, a duo chrome peachy pink, an orange. Something foiled would also be very pretty. Or even glitter.
Makeup Geek: Americano on the inner and outer corners and up in the crease some. Preppy as the blending shade in the crease and transition shade. Light Year Sparkler in the center of the lid. Which is a pigment/glitter hybrid that has a peachy pink opalescent color to it.
House of Lashes Boudoir Lashes
Dose of Colors Stone on the lips
This is a very colorful peach, pink, orange and purple. It's super foiled and bright looking which I love and then glittery with the purple. With a nude pink lip. Also the skin is much warmer as well.
Makeup Geek: Chickadee as the transition shade in the crease. Poppy heavily in the crease for it's orange color. Cherry Cola low on the outer crease for definition. Mai Tai on the majority of the lid, inner corner, and lower lash line. Light Year is then put over top of Mai Tai to make it pop more and look more foiled.
MBA Cosmetics Pressed Glitter in Amethyst Moon on the outer half of the lid. Pressed Glitter is tricky you have to make sure you have the look exactly where you want it because once you add he primer and pressed glitter (which is more opaque than loose glitter) there is no changing it.
Lena Lashes Monroe lashes
Melt Cosmetics Sext lipstick
Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in Bronzed.
Ofra Cosmetics You Dew You highlight
The last and final look which is like a sunset. It'd be gorgeous with red, orange, yellow and maybe even a warm pink dress. It's mainly foiled which I love.
Makeup Geek: Poppy in the crease, Bitten lower in the crease and outer corner, Razzleberry in the center, Fortune Teller foiled shadow inner part of the lid and on the lower lash line. Hologram on the inner half over the shadows. Light Year in the inner corner.
Violet Voss Sexy and Eye Know It 3d Faux Mink lashes
Color Pop Cake on the lips
So these are all looks I think would be great for prom. Hopefully I've put something in for every color dress or ensemble out there. I hope you find one to your liking. If you're doing makeup yourself be sure to play around about 2 weeks in advance to perfect and find what you like. If you're on a budget check out etsy for glitters like Beauty Bar Baby, or Fairy Vibez for pressed glitters. Also the drugstore has come a long way as well. NYX has a great concealer out right now called Gotcha Covered which is full coverage as can be. Milani 2 in 1 foundation is a great full coverage foundation. Lashes are super easy to find, I recommend Ardell Wispies everytime or a half strip of lashes. Physicians formula has good bronzers and of course NYX contour kit is good as well.
Good luck and be safe!!
