But if you really want your personality to come out in the way you look in that particular night, you should be guided by thinking about the exact kind of look that you want.
The Sweet and Simple Look
If you like to look sweet and simple, all you have to is choose from a variety of minimal colors that will appear almost naturally vibrant. This kind of look is right for all those girls who possess that saccharine, pristine smile that will surely charm its way out of anything. To create this look, the colors of light pink, peaches, creams, beiges or sky blue, and shimmery gray will do the trick. A matte foundation, or light cake foundation that will not make your face look too made up will be perfect.
Lining the upper and lower eyelids with an enhancing brown eyeliner, applying one coat of black mascara and curling them will finish off the eye-enhancing effects. Of course, the goal is to exude sweetness, so choose sweet, subtle colors that will naturally flush the skin. And to add the final touch, glossy and shimmery lip color in the shades of pink, peach or nude may be used.
The Daring Look
This kind of look exudes a striking confidence, that will surely be emphasized by bold shades like dark purple, gray, black, navy blue and brown. Usually, the smokey-eyed look will be the best makeup style to highlight this. The smokey-eyed look uses the blends of dark-purple and black, navy-blue, black and gray, or brown and black, to accentuate the eyes, also adding a thick coating of mascara and an overall lining in the upper and lower lids, from corner to corner. This smudged look is done to fully emphasize drama in the eye area and mute the rest of the colors on the face. So, you may use a subtle peach cheek flush, and nude lipstick to complete the overall boldness.
The Chic Look
This kind of look is fun, hip and edgy, typical for the ultimate party princess. It uses loud and bright colors like blue, green, hot pink and silver or gold. These colors are definitely out to give a statement. And since these colors are critical for color coordination, one must take into consideration good blending. So if you are using bright colors to highlight your eyes, use a slightly flushed color for the cheeks and light colored lip tints. Just remember that in using bright colore eyed shadows, one must attract less attention to the lips, to avoid that busy look.
One important rule in looking for the perfect make-up style during the prom night is to know what you are going to wear, and coordinate it with your make-up's shades. These prom make up tips will be of a great help for you to achieve that dolled-up look that will surely earn you some shocked faces and appreciative smiles.
