With prom season just around the corner, everyone will be looking for last-minute prom hacks. Prom is the time to show off your best look, so everything must be perfect. Whether it’s the glamorous fit, trendy nails, stylish shoes, or elegant hairstyles, the search is on for the best prom ideas. From effortlessly beautiful to standing out exceptionally, people want it all for this special night.
There are several stunning makeup trends to help you glam up for this year’s prom. Picking out the right look can be overwhelming and stressful, especially if you plan to do it yourself. Even though experimenting with looks can add to the fun of the night, you don’t want something to go wrong.
Don’t worry, though! From almost no makeup, to bold pops of color, to super dramatic smokey eyes, here’s a simple guide for some of the easiest-serving prom makeup ideas this year.
- Smokey Eyes
Who doesn’t love a good smokey eye? For a more formal prom look, apply black eyeshadow to the creases and outer corners of your eye. This intense look is super easy—smudge black liner under the bottom lashes and finish things off with a clean coat of black mascara.
- Bold Color
Want to emulate the recent Barbiecore or mermaid core trends? This could be the look for you. If your prom dress or suit is more simple, try a pop of color by adding a bold lip, cool liner, rosy blush, or super-pigmented eyeshadow. After adding a base, just pack on the color until you practically taste the rainbow.
- Inner-Eye accents
Finding a makeup look that matches your prom aesthetic is the best, so try this eye accent hint to match your ensemble. Simply play around with the area around your tiny inner tear ducts. Use some highlighter to brighten the focal point to your inner eyes, or try an ombre gradient with loud colors.
Are you looking for that radiant, pre-summer glow? Enhance your entire look by incorporating glitter to make yourself shimmer. Lightly dust yourself with some extra highlights on your eyelids and lips. Enjoy a stunning appearance with glowing skin and glossy lids that boast a high-shine finish.
- Clean Girl Makeup
Can’t decide between all of these amazing makeup options? Try a more natural makeup look! What’s easier than no-makeup makeup? The Clean Girl trend has taken the internet by storm. Just keep it simple, regardless of whether or not your outfit is busy. A little highlight, a simple swipe of mascara, and light coverage will go a long way. Create soft, subtle looks that enhance your natural beauty.
