Prom Fashion and Beauty 101

I gave you some mark. beauty tips for prom, so how about some beauty and fashion inspiration?

I was inspired when I was browsing through Net-a-Porter for cool summer tops and sweaters. Many of the dresses on the website speak for itself: bold, beautiful, and unique! So, how exactly do you pick a makeup look to wear with them? I remember I had a brown and teal-colored dress… my makeup artist actually matched my eyes with my dress. That is right – I committed a beauty NO-NO: I had a blend of light brown and teal eyeshadows. When I look back at the pictures, it is HORRIBLY embarrassing! After hours of reading magazine articles, eavesdropping on conversations, and people-watching (in a non-creepy way), I came up with a list of mark. products you can wear with the dress for your big night!

Inspired by Jessica Chastain’s Oscars dress? The Alexander McQueen Embroidered Gown is the right pick! No need to go all out with the makeup – the dress speaks for itself! Skip the smoky eyes and bold red lip colors. All you need is a fabulous powder or cream blush, gorgeous lashes, and a shiny nude lip color.

Going glama-wowza in a dress like this KAUFMANFRANCO Sequin Gown? All eyes will be on you that evening! Go for a cool smoky eye – but not too smoky (you don’t want to look like a raccoon). Pick an amazing liquid eyeliner and dark eyeshadow, and finish with a matte nude lip color, and you are good to go!

 Are you going fun and flirty in a dress like this Gucci Metallic Mini Dress? Well, my dear, I think you will be able to pull off a retro red lip color! Keep your face simple and perhaps go for bold eyebrows, but go for it when picking your red lip color!
