Prom season is upon us, meaning it’s time to start thinking about the countless details surrounding the event. Second to finding the most perfect gown, planning your makeup for the occasion is top priority (or even first, if you’re anything like us). Prom is one of the most anticipated events of your high school career, next to graduation, of course. To help you get your prom glam just right, we rounded up five makeup tutorials that are all equally stunning but different in their own right. It’s safe to say you can’t go wrong with any of these looks. No matter which you choose you’ll definitely slay, queen.

Drugstore Prom Makeup Look

Prom can get a little (read: very) pricey when you add up all the random costs. This drugstore prom makeup tutorial by Amy’s Makeup Box proves you don’t need to spend a ton of money on products to look flawless. She used only NYX Professional Makeup to create this stunning pinky makeup. Some of our favorite standout products include the NYX Eyeshadow Palette in Rustic Antique, NYX Total Drop Foundation and NYX Lip Lingerie in Dusk to Dawn.

Gold Smoky Eye Prom Makeup Look

You can’t go wrong with this classic gold smoky eye and winged eyeliner makeup look. No matter what your dress looks like, this prom makeup will complement it perfectly. Katerina Williams put together a quick and simple tutorial that will show you how to make your eyes sparkle. To create her flawless base, she used an all-star duo of the NYX Professional Makeup Pore Filler Primer and Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation.

Natural Prom Makeup Look

If you want to look more low-key for prom, Lauren Curtis shows you how to make natural makeup look prom-worthy in just ten minutes. She creates a simple yet stunning neutral look that will let your natural beauty speak for itself at prom. She even used some of our favorite products like L'Oréal Paris True Match Foundation and NYX Professional Makeup Xtreme Lip Cream in Nude Peach Fuzz. For her eyeshadow, she used the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush and the Carbon Black Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner

Silver Smoky Eye Prom Makeup Look

Shanny Stephens created such a gorgeous silver smoky eyeshadow look with a striking bold red lip that you’ll want to plan your entire dress around it. You’ll look like an absolute queen in this glam makeup. To achieve the look she used an array of NYX Professional Makeup products, including the Studio Perfect Photo-Loving Primer and NYX Micro Brow Pencil, and she sealed the deal with the cult-favorite Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

Extra Glam Prom Makeup Look 

Go big or go home, right? Holly Boon’s extra glam makeup tutorial has us swooning. If she inspires you to go all out for prom this year (and she should!), then you can recreate the look with her super-detailed 20-minute tutorial. She used the Maybelline New York Superstay 24H Photofix Foundation and Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer to create her flawless base.
