Prom Makeup

The Big Night Deserves Great Makeup

Prom makeup is different than a lot of makeup because for some people, this is the only formal event they will ever go to.

Thus it is important to abide by formal eye makeup tips if you plan to get a prom look on your own because it could make or break your dance.

Try experimenting with this look a few times before the dance and you should be fine. Here are some makeup tips that will hopefully steer you in the right direction for prom.


Almost all young women go tanning for their prom nights, so you may want to do the same.

If you do not want to toast away in a professional tanning bed, you may want to use a body bronzer or spray tan to get your skin glowing at its finest.


Choose a color for your foundation that matches the actual color you will be during prom.

Take into account any tanning sessions you will be going through. You can use standard liquid or powder foundation, but it may also be a good idea to look into airbrush foundation for this occasion.

That way you have smooth skin for all the pictures you’re going to look at during your high school reunions. You could also look into organic cosmetics or natural mineral makeup to get the job done.


Your eyes need to make a big statement for your prom look. Focus on good eyebrow grooming to ensure that you have nice, even arches to work around.

Then consider what color you want for your eye shadow. Many women will choose dark colors like brown or black for prom makeup, but you can work with anything you want.

Make sure to use highlighters on your eyes as well for maximum pop.


The lip makeup you wear needs to be something that can easily be reapplied during the night.

Some simple lip gloss will usually do the trick if you get the right shade. Do not get anything too dark unless you have a dress and eye makeup to go along with that.

If you’re ready to find long-lasting, high-pigment lipsticks that will stay on all day, you need our very own K.h.o.i.n. Cosmetics.

Testing the Look

It is always a good idea to test your makeup out ahead of time so you can see what works and what does not.

This will also give you practice time in case you mess up on the big day. Play around with different looks and applications until you find something that works well for you. Then you will have nothing to worry about for your prom.
