Prom 2011 is already under way with an abundance of Prom fashion shows popping up across the country. Like every new season in the word of fashion there are new trends in the prom arena for make-up, hair and prom dresses to look forward to.
The right make up can make any outfit, and the wrong makeup can kill an outfit as well. Prom is no different. On this Day young women who generally don’t wear makeup take prom as the day to go all out and have makeup on, and those who usually wear it decided to take it up a notch. Well Ladies, I have some tips that are guaranteed to help you look great this prom season!
Have your makeup airbrushed with a silicone foundation to give your face the natural, flawless finish; a subtle touch of peach or palest pink blusher will add a touch of colour.
Soft pinks, peaches, lilac, and white pearl eye shadows, the merest hint of eyeliner, to enhance the natural eyelash and give them a subtle fuller, longer look think about having your eyelashes tinted. The lips should be complimented with pastel pinks, peaches or a soft tone of brown long lasting lip-gloss.
Perfect Prom Makeup:
Before you apply a makeup, decide what you want to highlight, is it the eyes or the lips. If you plan on lips then apply a bold and dark pink lip color keeping the eye makeup simple. And if you want to highlight eyes, apply a good liner with mascara and false eye lashes making sure that your lips is just glossy.
A dressy evening event like a prom is a perfect opportunity to wear dramatic, dark, smokey eye makeup. However, you might be wondering how to get that perfect smokey eye effect? Here are some tips on how to blend eyeshadow and liner into a beautiful, cohesive coating that will bring you one step closer to pulling off your perfect prom ensemble.
The first step is the prepare your eyelids for what’s to come with some eyeshadow base, or primer. Apply the base to your eyelids and let it dry for a few minutes before proceeding with the rest of the process. This step will keep the rest of your eye makeup from melting into the crease of your eyelid by reducing the amount of natural oils on your lid.
Vintage dresses this year seem to be dominating the prom shows If vintage is the way you want to go remember the vintage makeup look was inspired by the neutral eyes and red lips, which were worn by many of Hollywood’s earliest starlets as Greta Garbo, Vivien Leigh, Judy Garland, and Marilyn Monroe.
Tips for vintage makeup: Use a slightly darker warmish foundation than your natural skin tone, and a powder a shade lighter than your exact skin colour gives that 40’s flawless makeup look. For the cheeks popular rouge colours were red with pinkish undertones, bright pinks with fuchsia and rose undertones.
Eye shadows muted grays and browns, dark brown or black mascara and a small line of eyeliner on the upper eyelid. Lips should look full plump and soft, the top lip always exaggerated and extremely kissable.
