Tips for Doing Your Own Prom Makeup
When it comes to preparing for prom night, the details matter. Believe it or not, your prom makeup could make or break your look, so here are a few things to consider when doing your makeup for the big night.
Use a photo-friendly foundation and powder
To avoid unflattering prom photos, you should use a foundation or powder that photographs well. There are foundations and powders that are designed for flash photography—these products are often marketed as “HD” products. When it comes to HD powders, you should proceed with caution, however. Many HD powders will leave a severe white cast on your skin if applied too heavily. Give your foundation or powder a trial run before the night of prom to avoid mishaps.
Match your foundation to your neck
Most prom dresses show off your neck, chest, and shoulders. This is why it is important that your foundation matches your neck. If your face and neck do not match, there will be an obvious line of demarcation. When shopping for foundation, compare each shade to your neck and purchase the closest match to your skin tone. You should also blend your foundation down your neck to ensure a seamless match.
Choose colors that coordinate well with your dress
Prom night is the perfect occasion to rock a colorful eye look—you should proceed with caution, however, if you choose to experiment with colorful eyeshadows. It is important that you choose eyeshadows that won’t clash with your dress. If your dress is a bold color, like red, opt for a neutral smoky eye. If you plan to wear a neutral colored dress, you can be a little more adventurous with your eyeshadow.
Use a setting spray to lock your makeup in place
At prom, you’ll be dancing the night away—you want to make sure your makeup is here to stay. This is why you should invest in a good setting spray. Setting sprays contain ingredients that will lock your makeup in place and give your skin a natural, radiant finish. Look flawless on the dance floor and in photos by setting your makeup.
