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 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.
