Prom is a night of magic, captured in photographs and memories treasured for years to come. That means that you want to look your best, choosing the perfect dress, shoes and hair style. Blending these elements with the right makeup effect is vital to creating a flawless look.
Before using any cosmetics on your face, you should always wash it thoroughly and use a skin healthy moisturizer such as Pür Minerals Mineral Moisture Complex. Next, apply a light foundation to achieve a soft, flawless complexion. On a night as active as prom, it’s probably best to skip heavy liquid foundation and instead go with something light and less likely to clump or cake, like the 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Foundation from Pür Minerals.
One of the most basic prom makeup tips is choosing where to focus your color. Highlight either the lips or the eyes, but not both. This lets you concentrate on one feature, allowing the other to act in a supporting role.
If you choose to highlight your eyes, then you want to find an eyeshadow color that complements your complexion, while also drawing attention upward. Don’t make the mistake of trying to match your eye shadow to your dress color. Alternatively, if you choose to focus on your lips, apply a Pür Minerals Pout Plumping Lip Gloss to make them really stand out, while using soft, subdued shades for your eyelids.
