It’s the night of nights! The perfect time to express your personal style and celebrate with your friends.
From the dress, hair, shoes and nails and of course your makeup! Break out the cut creases, sparkles and lashes! Whether you’re doing it yourself or have a makeup artist, here are 6 simple makeup looks for prom to try for both avid beauty lovers and beginners. If you want some extra glam, check out our best tips to bring them to life!
Use your dress as inspo and choose a similar colour palette to really tie your look together. Be sure to use a good eyeshadow primer or base (like a light-toned concealer) to make the colours not only last all night, but POP on the dance floor!
Neutrals are SO versatile! They complement whatever outfit you choose to wear, as well as your eye colour. Choose tones that compliment your skin and blend with a fluffy eye shadow brush.
Want to amplify the look? Take your concealer and carve out your eye for a cut-crease look- this emphasizes the eye shape and can either make your eyes larger or elongated. Top with a false lash of your choice! One of our favourite versatile lashes for all occasions is Mini Me from the Effortless collection!
If your outfit for the night is dramatic, you can contrast your makeup with soft and pretty pastels! Choose a pastel shade that compliments your eye colour and skin tone – think pinks, peaches and lavender. With a fluffy blending brush, feather out your eyeshadow for a soft smokey eye.
Top this pastel eye look with a contrasting dramatic false lash from the Vegan Luxe collection, like Dream Girl or Can’t Be Tamed.
Using a clear Lash Adhesive, dot the glue around your eyes and take mini gemstones to accent your eye shape. You can get really creative with this one!
Using an eyelash glue on the face will hold the gems in place for hours, but don’t worry – it's also easy to remove when you're done with the look. You can find gemstones and a waxy tip applicator for precise placement on amazon or your local craft store.
If you normally don’t wear much (or any) makeup but want to play with some beauty products on the special day, you came to the right place! Our tips start with a good mascara, like Pretty Big Deal which effortlessly builds up the length with its tubing formula.
If you really want to try something special like false eyelashes, use a kit! The Effortless Kit comes with everything you need including no-trim lashes (hello stress-free application!) a latex-free lash glue and a mini applicator for perfect placement.
