Tips for a Great Prom!
Getting ready for a prom often begins several weeks before the big event. There are many things to prepare for such as your dress, hair, prom makeup and shoes. Many suggest starting early because time passes quickly and you want to ensure that you are ready for the prom. Prom makeup is easy to apply; however, prom makeup takes time, patience and skill.
Many professional makeup artists suggest choosing your eyes or your mouth, as features to highlight. This choice can be made by asking yourself, “Which area of my face do most people compliment me on?” Another way to make this decision is to look carefully in the mirror and then choose your best feature. Ask, will it be my mouth or my eyes? Choose one and focus your makeup on this area. If you choose your mouth, you want your color to be bright such as red or burnt orange. If your eyes come in second, keep it a soft color and be sure to apply it carefully. In addition, line your eyes with brown or black liner before you apply your eye color. Blending eye colors also works well. For instance if you have blue eyes, apply a shade of brown and on top of the brown, apply a light blue. Prom makeup can make prom night a breeze!
If you want your eyes to be highlighted, use liner, mascara and shadow. You may also want to apply false eyelashes. Because your lips are second on the list, use a light color such as pink and on top of the lipstick, apply a light gloss. Prom makeup needs to be more accentuated than everyday makeup.
It is also very important to make sure that you skin is smooth and glowing. Should you have some acne on your skin, use a concealer and then a foundation. Foundation should only be put on areas that have blemishes. It is important to find a foundation that comes close to your skin color and always blend in the foundation along your jaw and some on your neck. You want your prom makeup to have an overall smooth look. Make sure that your foundation is smoothed out evenly, so as not to draw attention to any one spot or spots on your face. Prom makeup will make your face shine!
Next, brush some powder on your face. Choose a color that comes close to your skin color and then apply a blush color to your cheeks. Take your brush and begin close to your nose and then bring the brush up to your eyes and out; making sure that the color goes on evenly. Apply mascara and eye liner, making sure that the dark color goes on evenly. Then, apply you lipstick and lip gloss. Prom makeup techniques are easy to learn.
Of course, when it comes time for picture taking, you want to ensure that you face looks lovely and smooth. Prom makeup can make this happen by applying your lipstick and eye liner with a mirror before posing in front of the camera. It is also important to check oily areas on your face such as your nose, chine and forehead and powder them before having your picture taken. Prom makeup, when applied carefully, will make picture taking a breeze!
Things To do before Prom
There are several things you can do several weeks before the prom such as cleansing and moisturizing your face each night. This can be done with an exfoliation treatment. This will help prevent any buildup of oil and dirt and will help you skin to look healthy and attractive. Prom makeup tips will ensure a great time at the prom.
Some suggest using blot papers instead of powder to help keep the shine from appearing on your face. Extra layers of powder often make the skin look cakey. However, bring some face powder along because that will help you to see clearly any touch-ups that need to be done. Keep your blot papers, face powder, lipstick and lip gloss, cream concealer, and a small travel size can of hairspray inside your prom purse. Once you have everything together for your face, you will be ready for a great looking night! Prom makeup tips are not difficult to follow; they just take effort and a few simple tricks of the trade.
