It’s that time of the year again. A time where everyone is all dressed to the nines and enjoying the best part of high school. Prom is one of the most anticipated events in a teen’s life. A lot of girl’s are probably preparing months in advance for the big night. To help you with your vast number of choices, here are some make up trends that you can try out.
PROM 2012 MAKE UP TRENDS
1. Smokey Eyes
This eye makeup gives a sexy and seductive look that is perfect during the night time. This year, try to give a new twist to the smokey eye by extending it a little bit to create a winged liner effect. If you want to tone down the color, opt for neutral colors such as brown or gray. You can also use metallic shades and even green and purple hues.
2. Innocent Pinks
Complement a smokey eye or create a delicate looking make up by choosing soft and flirty lipsticks. This will bring in fun and romance to your whole entire look.
3. Sultry Reds
If you prefer to highlight your lips instead of eyes, use a bright red shade on your lips. Apply a more neutral look to your eyes because mixing a smokey eye with a bold lip will just make everything look tacky. For a different twist, choose one with an orange tint. Just make sure that it complements the color of your dress.
4. Don’t Be Too Matchy
A great trend for prom this year is to use colors that aren’t too matchy with the dress. For example, if you are wearing a purple dress, try to use a metallic gold or silver on your eyes. If you have a green dress, try to play with brown colors. Just make sure to keep everything simple so that it won’t look to over the top.
5. Strategic Shimmers
Give that beautiful glow on your face by applying some shimmer. Try to apply a shimmer color on the inner corners of your eyes, the bridge of your nose, the tops of your cheeks and a little bit on your chin. The light will hit these areas beautifully. Just make sure that you have blended everything well.
Remember to always prepare days ahead. If you want to experiment with your make up, try to have a get together with your friends and experiment with different make up looks so that you’ll be able to have a feel of what you are going to wear or use. Try these make up trends and you will surely become the belle of the ball.
