Prom Makeup Looks That are Guaranteed to Impress

Dust off your dancing shoes because Prom night is right around the corner! You’ve probably spent hours scouring Pinterest for that perfect dress, the right shoes, and an epic hairstyle. The last piece of your prom puzzle is fiercely fabulous makeup. Whether you’re opting for glam, grunge, or glitz, we’ve got some hot looks that’ll keep heads turning all night long!

Mermaid vibes

With a million fish in the sea, who wouldn’t want to be a mermaid? This look is all about working the blue and green hues. Try turquoise eye shadow with some gold highlights on the inner corners. Pair with a bright teal-green liner and get ready to make some waves!

Red lips and bold eyes

Nothing says confidence and glamour like a classic red lip. Keep it chic with black, winged eyeliner or put a modern twist on it with pastel liner. Either way, draw a thick, winged line starting at the inner corner of your eye, ending just below your brow.

Bronzy glow

If loads of makeup is not your thing, channel your inner beach babe with bronzer. Dust some onto the apples of your cheeks and apply highlighter to the areas of your face that the sun normally touches. The bridge of your nose, cupid’s bow, and your brow bone. Pair with a nude or pale pink lip.

Grunge glamour

Grunge never looked so good! Give your formal wear some edge with a gunmetal gray smoky eye and a deep burgundy or purple lip. Want to make your look ultra-dramatic? Try an over the top cat eye. Line the top and bottom of your lids with liquid liner, ending with a wing on both sides.

If there was ever an occasion that made you want to stand out in a crowd, prom night is definitely one of them. Don’t be afraid to shake things up with a prom night look that will make you and your night unforgettable!
