Prom is coming ladies! With so much to plan like your dress, shoes, jewelry, hair, it's important to remember your makeup! A look is never complete until your makeup is done! Whether you choose to do your own makeup or have it done professionally it's a good idea to have a general idea of what you want.

There are so many choices these days for dresses, you can't really go wrong as long as you feel confident! Let's say your brave and your dress is crazy cool and you want it to be the main focus, opt for a clean makeup look, big lashes and defined brows, this will keep the attention on your dress.

Metallics are huge this year, watch any red carpet event and you'll see beautiful, form fitting metallic dresses. This is the perfect time for a warm summer glow! Lots of bronzer and a smoky brown/gold eye, or even silver if that's your metal of choice. As far as lips are concerned any color will do! Try a sultry red lip or soft peach.

There are so many options with makeup! The possibilities are ENDLESS! Don't worry if makeup isn't your forte, there are no rules! There is nothing wrong with matching your eyeshadow with your dress or accessories. Wearing a blue dress? Add a pop of blue to your bottom lash line with some eyeliner! Wearing gold shoes? Wear gold shadow! Just remember to have fun and own your look!

Here are some extra tips to keep you looking FABulous!

  • Apply false lashes AFTER shadow & liner! Not BEFORE!
  • If you need a brow/lip wax, do it at least 2 days before, not day of.
  • Don't use this time to try something new (unless your with a professional winged liner is fun, but you don't want to look like Miss Winehouse! lol!)
  • Don't forget your lipstick at home! Stick your favorite shade in your purse or clutch so you can reapply if necessary.

If you have any questions, need help or want to book a makeup appointment call 870-863-SKIN. 

Hope you ladies have fun!
