We’ve seen (and shared) countless prom makeup tutorials — from glitter eye looks to bold lipstick techniques. And in a sea of familiar prom beauty looks, we completely understand the desire to want to stand out from the crowd. So we figured out the perfect way to do that: by adding a little Instagram-worthy flora to your makeup. Ahead, find an out-of-the-box tutorial on how to reinvent your prom makeup this year — with the help of real flowers.
Step 1: Start by prepping your skin with L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion for an illuminating base.
Step 2: Next, apply the NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Foundation Drops to even out the skin.
Step 3: Contour, highlight and add blush to your face with the Urban Decay Naked Flushed in Streak.
Step 4: Pick up the shimmery champagne shade in the Maybelline Burgundy Bar Palette with a fluffy brush, and swipe it over your lids and into your crease.
Step 5: Next, pick up the shimmery burgundy hue and blend it into your outer V. Finish off the eye look by placing the lightest shade of the palette onto your brow bone and inner corner.
Step 6: Line your upper lash line with the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner, and wing it out.
Step 7: Coat your lashes with the NYX Professional Makeup Worth The Hype Mascara.
Step 8: Fill in your brows with the L’Oréal Paris Boost & Set Brow Mascara.
Step 9: Finally — and here’s where things get good — finish off the look by applying dried flowers onto your face, adhering them with a small amount of eyelash glue. (Tip: We found these on etsy.com.) You can use as many or as few as you’d like, and you can create a pattern and colorway that works with your dress and overall prom style.
Step 10: To make your pout pop, finish off the look with the Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Lip Gloss in Beso.
