10 Cute Makeup Looks to Recreate for PromMay 11, 2023
Cute Makeup Looks for Prom
It’s safe to say that nobody will outshine you on prom night if you arrive with this makeup look. Gilded lids, fresh matte skin and nude lips are opulent and fun, especially when paired with a matching gold prom dress. To get your base looking as smooth and flawless as possible, we recommend reaching for a matte foundation with full coverage, such as the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation.
Pearly LidsA wash of lavender shadow and a scattering of faux pearls across the lids gives your prom makeup a dreamy, romantic vibe. We envision this look paired with a matching purple, baby pink or white dress. To recreate the eye makeup, try applying the NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Donut all over your eyelids, then attaching the Half Magic Face Pearls with lash glue for some added gleam.
Flushed CheeksA soft eye and pinky-nude lip are a dreamy complement to sugary-sweet, flushed cheeks. To mimic creator Camila Derizans’ glowing pink cheeks, try dusting on the Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Glow Blush in Amore.
Ombré Red LipAn ombré red lip and shimmery yet neutral eye is a classically glam combo that would stun with a black or red prom dress. For the pop of bright red color in the center of her lips, creator Lauren B. Brown used the NYX Professional Makeup Powder Puff Lip Cream in Crushing Hard.
Bejeweled Cut CreaseFor a look that’s equal parts soft, glamorous and elegant, we love this bejeweled cut crease paired with luminous, glass skin. For a complexion that looks radiant and doesn’t have the dreaded flashback effect under cameras, we recommend the Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation.
Subtle Smoky EyesA hint of shimmery, duochome eyeshadow brings light to a smoky eye and can complement your dress color. To make your lashes stand out against the smokiness, slick on two to three coats of the Maybelline New York The Falsies Surreal Extensions Mascara.
Precise Winged LinerA precise black line looks dramatic and doll-like against stark white eyeshadow. To get your wing as thin and sharp as possible, use a fine-tip liquid eyeliner like the Urban Decay 24/7 Inks Liquid Eyeliner. Its paintbrush-like tip and ergonomic handle give you the most control when you’re drawing on your cat-eye.
Rosy Soft GlamIf natural-looking makeup is more your speed, you’ll love this soft glam look. Rosy tones and a sleek wing on the eyes complement glowing cheeks and high-shine lips. Toss the NYX Professional Makeup Fat Oil Lip Drip in Missed Call in your bag to keep your lips glossy all night — the miniature size is just right for a clutch. To sharpen your wing, reach for the Lancôme Idôle Liner.
Bold in Blue
Cobalt blue eyeshadow makes for a striking monochromatic look with a blue dress or offers a pop of color to a neutral gown. To keep the attention focused on your eyes, opt for light, glowy makeup on the rest of the face and a neutral, glossy lip.
