The Perfect Prom Makeup; Useful Tips For Proms

It’s not a secret how important the prom night is. It’s essential to plan your prom dress, hairstyle and makeup in advance in order to look flawless and amazing. The prom ball is a very awaited occasion and you will have to look gorgeous and feel special, that’s why the prom makeup should be planned and applied very carefully as it should enhance your natural beauty.


Applying a makeup primer prior to the foundation is a must in order to make your make up stay put on for longer and to look like real beauty all night long. A good primer will prepare your skin for the make up application, creating a protective base for longer lasting make up. Apply the primer after moisturizing your skin and before the foundation. You can apply it over the entire face or only to any shiny areas of the face, usually the nose, chin and forehead. A make up primer works especially well for those with oily or combination skin as it reduces the excess shine by absorbing the excess oil on the skin’s surface and make any large pores appear smaller and less visible.

Foundation Tips
It’s essential to have a foundation of high quality that suits your skin tone and skin type in order to look natural. Depending on your skin you should apply the foundation before or after the concealer. Make sure your skin is well-moisturized before applying the foundation - this way the makeup will blend better. Apply a small amount of the foundation to the tip your index finger and dot on the nose, chin, forehead and cheeks. Start blending in an upwards and outwards motions. Blend very carefully, making sure that there are no hard lines or patches, especially along the jaw line.
One very important thing you should always remember is to choose a foundation that perfectly matches your skin tone, especially for such an important occasion like a prom bal. if your skin is clear, free of blackheads, whiteheads and small pimples you can use a tinted moisturizer instead of a foundation.
