Prom Makeup E-mail9:38 PM
I received an e-mail tonight about prom makeup and I think the response would help a lot of you girls so I decided to post it. I hope all of you have a fabulous prom and feel beautiful all night!
My friend and I are in a bind. We started making our appointments to get our makeup done too late so we're stuck with doing our own for prom this Saturday. We're both Korean so we feel like you'd know better than some random makeup consultants on how to do our makeup for prom. Do you have any recommendations? (By the way her dress is black and pink and mine is shades of blue.)
Thank you so much!!!!
Your makeup for prom can either go 3 ways, color-wise. Matching your dress (my fav), neutral (brown or black smokey or cream vintagey), or contrasting. Since you are doing this for prom, I think you should go all-out with the eye makeup. Not necessarily heavy, but black liquid liner and false lashes are always pretty.
I think for hers, a black and pink smokey look would look really cute.
Similar to my valentine's day look.
For yours, I actually think a silver smokey eye would be super hot with a blue dress! The shadow from this look, but with pink or red lips instead of coral. Blue is a cool color so you want to stick with cooler shades.
Or like this
Here is a tutorial for a colored smokey eye. This can translate to any color you want.
Since you will be taking lots of pics, stay away from using shadows with glitter. Matte or satin finish is fine. Oh, and using a lighter concealer under your eyes and the tops of your cheekbones will make you look bright and healthy.
If you want a neutral brown look, here is my "wedding makeup" look.
Hope this helps! I hope you have lots of fun at prom. :)
A couple more words of advice, PRACTICE your final look before the actual day! You want to know what to expect when it is important and a trial run will help. For prom night, you can bring your lipgloss or blotting sheets with you but travel light because you aren't going to want to carry it around all night. Also, BE GOOD. You want this to be a day you will remember, not one you can't remember and puke at and have to suffer with a hangover the next day. (Haha! But I'm serious! You want to look sexy and fresh in those photos, right? :)
If any of you girls do follow my tutorials please let me know. I'd love to see your pics of the fun night. Good luck and have a fabulous time!
