Prom season is upon us and instead of doing a bunch of looks for prom I figured I'd go through some I've already done. Which then led me to group them into categories of what color you might be wearing to prom. First off, I never feel like your eyeshadow has to match your outfit but if you're more comfortable doing that or prefer it that way then this post is for you. You can add or take away to tweak this to your liking as well. It's just makeup, it washes right off.
First up is blue and green dresses. These 4 looks I chose would look great with a blue or green dress no matter the intensity of the color whether it's dark or pale i believe one of these may work for you.
A popular color around prom is purple. So I chose these to go with your purple dress. The last would could also work for a green dress too. Do be afraid to add a pop of color or glitter to the eye in a color that your not wearing. It can be very eye catching and flattering at times.
Next we have your Reds, Pale Pink, Hot Pink, and Burgundys. You know how much I love cranberry and burgundy shades so there was a ton of looks for that. Pink on the other hand can be intimidating but I find that most of the time it can be very flattering and pretty.
Moving onto orange and coral tones. Which I don't remember seeing a lot of at my prom, and I don't know why cause it can be so pretty. I realized I actually use a lot of orange and coral shadows. They're very flattering I think. The last two pictures would go well with a purple dress too. Also, rose gold shadows and glitters look amazing with these looks if you want to add a little more sparkle.
This last set is for those timeless dresses like gold, black, white, silver and so on. It's also completely neutral incase what you're looking for is glamorous but neutral. Which when in doubt is what I would do. I'd do false lashes and a neutral eye with a mauve lip and call it a day. If it were me that is. You do whatever you're comfortable with. These looks are all on my Instagram with details of what specific shadows I used. My IG is @lovemascara so go follow me and if you're going to prom BE SAFE and have a fun time!
