Makeup is often one of those things you can have too much of. The latest fashion trends are all the same. They all say that less is more. Having just enough make up gives you that amazing look you are after without making it look fake or overdone. As you consider the options you have for makeup for prom, keep in mind a few tricks and tips that can help you to look as natural as you would like to, but covering those flaws and enhancing your beauty. You do not need a lot of makeup to create a great look.
For the first step, choose the right concealers. On young skin, it is unlikely that you need a large amount of foundation, which simply clogs pores. Rather, use a concealer to hide any blemishes and to mask any discoloration. If you do use a foundation, match it to your skin tone well. Do not go with a too dark foundation, as it will look bad. You want to keep your skin even and using a natural foundation is always important. Once you have this in place, you can choose just a few more items to put on.
Choose an area of your face to highlight. This is likely to be your best feature. Do you want your eyes to stand out or do you want your lips too stand out. You can even highlight your cheeks if you would like to. When you select just one location to highlight, the result is fantastic. Let us assume that you select the keys. To keep them natural looking, do not put too much eye makeup on. Rather, go for a light layer of colors that really help your eyes to pop. Use a blend of three shades of eye shadow. Use eyeliner that is a lighter color.
For the other areas of your face, choose appropriate colors to create a natural look. For example, the lips do not have to stand out. Use a lip liner and lipstick that is just slighting different from your lip’s natural color. For your cheeks, choose a color of blush that is just slighting darker than your skin tone. Apply it just to the cheekbones in a sweeping motion. This is where your face would normally blush.
When you keep colors and tones in check, you create a very beautiful, natural look. You will want your makeup to look great on your prom night, so give yourself the chance to try out a few different combinations in the weeks leading up to prom. Remember, this is a special night, so you do want to invest in a look that is stunningly beautiful. Going for a natural, but well-done look is key here.
