Prom is one of the last hurrahs before graduation, marking the end of an era and the beginning of a new (kind-of) adult life. It’s important that you show up and show out for one of the hallmarks of your high school career. And while your dress is important, your makeup is what really pulls it all together. Even though you can rock any look you choose, we’ve taken the guesswork out of it and picked the makeup look that’s perfect for your zodiac sign.
