Prom Beauty Tips to Look Gorgeous in Any Outfit

Prom beauty tips to look gorgeous in any outfit ideas because prom season is just around the corner.

There are many options for glam, including eyeshadows with a cut crease and bold lips, eyeliners that have a graphic look, and eyeliner that is sharp. If you prefer a more subtle look, there are plenty of soft looks that will work well for any occasion. We’ve compiled a list of our top natural, yet sophisticated makeup looks for prom.

What Makeup Should You Wear to Prom?

You can have fun with your makeup, no matter how bold or subtle it may be, at prom. There are no rules in makeup. Just make sure you choose something that makes your feel beautiful.

To reduce the chance of smudges or smears, opt for waterproof and sweatproof makeup.

Prom Makeup: The Best Natural Looks

We’ve compiled a list of our top picks for a more subtle look to wear to prom.

A Red Lip and Glowing Skin

A timeless red lip with radiant skin will highlight your lips and bring out your natural beauty. The overall look is natural, even with the pop of color in your lips. Keep the eyes and cheeks hydrated.

We love the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick, Bad Blood. It is a matte, comfortable formula that won’t dry out your lips and will last for a long time.

Soft Winged Eyeshadow

This soft winged eyeshadow look will make your eyes the focal point of your look.

This is a subtler version of classic winged eyeliner but it can still give the eyes a defined and lifted look.

You can achieve this look by placing a piece tape at the corners of the eyes. Then, use a pencil brush to blend a dark eyeshadow.

Quick Tip: Add your favorite lip color, and a layer of volumizing mascara like the Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara.

Glam Skin and Glossy Lips

The best makeup for prom is subtle and doesn’t overshadow your dress.

Apply a foundation that is sweat-proof to your skin. Next, apply a matte setting powder such as the NYX Professional Mattifying Powder to any shiny areas. This will ensure your makeup looks great in photos. Next, give your lips a shiny finish using the NYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss In Sugar Glass.

Flushed Lips and Cheeks

We think that blush is the best thing. Apply a cream blush like the Giorgio Armani Beauty Neo Nude Melting Colour Balm to your cheeks. Use your fingertips to blend the product into your skin. The look can be layered onto your lips to create monochromatic effects.

Colored Eyeliner

You can play with color in subtle ways. Colored eyeliners can be used to give your makeup a little extra flair while still keeping it natural. The color can be applied to either your top or bottom eyelashes.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils are great as they come in a variety of vibrant colors. The cream formula can also be applied easily and blended out to create a subtle look.
