Smoky Eye and Shadows
A classic prom night staple, the smoky eye is easy to do and looks great on almost anyone. Use lots of dark eyeshadow, eyeliner, and lots of dark mascara. Make sure you apply the eyeliner close to the lash line and smudge liberally to thicken the line. Using different shades of foundation can help you create the illusion of a thinner face, brighter eyes, or perfect nose. Use a light colored eyeshadow or foundation at the inner corners of your eyes to create the illusion of wider spaced eyes.
The lip color you wear at prom will vary according to the look you want to achieve, the colors that are currently in style, and how you apply the rest of your makeup. If you decide to go with the smoky eye, opt for a less dramatic lip. Heavy eye makeup paired with heavy lipstick often results in an overly made-up look. However, if you opt for a lighter eye makeup application, go ahead and play up those full red lips.
Artificial Nails for Prom
Depending on the look you choose for prom, you might want a more elaborate style of nail. You can choose from solid colors that pop or from a variety of different designs that you can match with your outfit or contrast to your outfit. Artificial nails salons have so many different designs to choose from that it's almost impossible not to find something that you will like and that will go with your dress perfectly. Artificial nails are incredibly popular these days, and not very expensive. For under $50 you can usually have a full set applied. The nails are firmly applied and will last through prom night with no problem. The only thing to remember is that if you're choosing to go with artificial nails from a salon, make sure that you select a reputable salon with licensed nail technicians.
