She has bought her prom dress, shoes, jewelry, and purse. You have decided whether you will do your hair yourself or go to a beautician. Now you must decide if you will do your makeup yourself or do it professionally. With the 2007 prom dresses, it’s all about fashion, and makeup is part of that fashion statement that will make you shine.
If you are someone who does not like to wear makeup, you will need to wear a small amount for your graduation. Makeup will highlight your features and cover up those unwanted blemishes.
If you’ve decided to do your own makeup, do your makeup before putting on your prom dress. This is a precaution to protect your prom dress from any falls or spills that may occur while applying makeup.
There are many tips for applying makeup that can bring out your natural beauty.
Foundation and Corrector
The first step in applying makeup is choosing the perfect foundation. This is done by matching makeup to your skin tone and complexion. Always make sure makeup is well blended and there are no foundation lines around the neck. For visible blemishes or dark circles under the eyes, a concealer can be used. Just apply it gently and blend well with foundation.
Once the foundation is applied, the eyes are the next important step. You don’t want your eyeshadow to match the color of your prom dress, but you do want it to complement it. To highlight your eyes, you will use a lighter shade or base color from lash line to brow. Use a darker shade as an outline along the upper lash line from the center to the outer corner, then back along the crease.
Using an eyeliner pencil, draw a single line above the upper lash line from the inner corner to the outer corner. Then draw a line under the lower lashes from the outer corner to the inner.
Mascara adds the finishing touch to your eyes. Hold the brush vertically to stroke your lower lashes. Next, for the upper lashes, move the brush back and forth at the base and then sweep the brush up.
You may want to add a bit of color to your cheeks just to make people think you have a natural glow. To apply this you can use a cheek color brush and this will make blending easier.
Your lips can be highlighted by outlining them with a pencil and then filling them in with a creamy lipstick. This will give definition and shape to your lips. Glossy lipstick can be used to achieve that ravishing look.
