It’s the morning of prom and I’m on my way to my appointment, or I’m staring at my counter covered in makeup and hair products and am thinking to myself — “WHAT HAVE I DONE!?!?!?” If you're like me and you leave hair and makeup decisions to the day of the dance, this guide is perfect for you!
This look is elegant and simple. If you have no idea what to do with your hair, this is the perfect look because it is so easy. All you need is a curling iron, wand or Beachwaver and you can get these beautiful waves all on your own.
Updo, Not Updon’t:
This look is great for keeping your hair off of your neck and face while you dance the night away, as well as making you look amazing. The hair style is simple but looks complex. Curl your hair, pin up the back into a messy bun, tease your roots for volume (if you need it) and add a braid or two wherever you need them.
This look has become more popular in recent years. It is a simple look but looks much harder than it is. To achieve this hair style, curl your hair and leave some hair in the front; take from the top of your hair, braid back on each side and connect in the back; finally, brush out your curls for the perfect wave.
Drama Drama Drama:
For years, people have been obsessed with having dramatic eyes. Often times, they do a smokey eye with browns and blacks. A dramatic look meets neutral when you use browns and pinks to create a smokey eye. A light nude-pink matte lipstick can finish off the look, giving you a natural yet dramatic look that is perfect for prom.
This look is something many can pull off but only a few try. Bold eyes, if done correctly, have the possibility to make your eyes pop and make you memorable. Any black or purple smokey eye can create a bold and sultry look and paired with a nude lip gives the perfect amount of contrast.
Brighten It Up:
Natural eye makeup looks good for any occasion. To spice it up, add a bright red or pink lip to draw more attention to your face. This makes you stand out. This look consists of light browns and pinks on your eyes with a bright lip to contrast.
