Nothing looks more glamorous than a glitter makeup look. Even designers are affected by the glitter obsession. We had a chance to see many dazzling pieces on the runway shows lately. Some brands took the glitter obsession on another level. Too Faced and GlamGlow recently announced that they are working on glitter masks. So, the beauty world is going crazy over glitter.
There is something special about the glitter. These tiny sparkly particles can change your entire makeup look. The most common way to use glitter in makeup is on your eyes, but glitter looks mesmerizing on the lips as well. As you probably guess, wearing glitter on your lips is not the most comfortable thing in the world, but is worth trying. In case your makeup game isn’t strong a glitter lip will do the job. Precise glitter makeup looks are a bit hard to create if you aren’t good in doing your makeup. If you can’t get over the mess that the loose glitter creates opt for pressed glitter. This glitter comes in eyeshadow pans and you don’t need glitter clue to keep it in place.
The dramatic glitter makeup looks are perfect for glamorous occasions such as prom, parties, weddings and so on. You can also flaunt a glamorous makeup look that includes glitter during the holiday season. The options to spice up your makeup look with glitter are endless. You could create a cut crease makeup look or highlight the inner corners of your eyes with glitter. Applying glitter all over your eyelids is another option. If you want to elevate your look in just seconds, apply glitter only on your lower lash line.
Feast your eyes on the most dramatic glitter makeup looks and get ready to be the most glamorous person at your next big event.
The main goal with the halo eyes makeup technique is to create an illusion of a bright halo on the center of your eyelids. To create the halo you will need a bright, preferably shimmery eyeshadow. For a more dramatic effect, you can reach for a completely different shade than the one you used on the corners of your eyes. To make the look extra glamorous use glitters and pigments. These textured eyeshadows will enhance the halo effect. The final result is very daring. The halo eyes are perfect for a night out or special events.
There are also softer versions of the halo eyes makeup. Neutral eyeshadows mixed with a pop of gold or bronze make the perfect soft halo eyes. You can experiment with any color you want and create neutral halo eyes. These looks are both day and night-time appropriate depending on your mood.
If you want to make the most out of the halo effect, don’t forget to highlight the lower lash line as well. Use the same eyeshadow you used on the center of your eyelids to highlight the center part of your lower lash line. This will enhance the halo effect and bring all the attention to your eyes.
The halo makeup technique is literally like highlighting your eyes. When you highlight your face your main intention is to accent the high points of your face. The same idea applies to the halo eyes. You can even use a highlighter to create the halo effect.
Take a look at these gorgeous halo eyes makeup looks and get inspired for your next glamorous makeover.

If you can afford it, it surely makes sense to turn to a professional makeup artist on this big day, however, if you stick to our step-by-step makeup tutorial and follow our makeup application tips for prom night, you are sure to come up with equally perfect outcomes. Just keep in mind that a successful prom makeup look is about emphasizing your best facial features, hiding any small imperfections of the oily skin, making your eyes look bigger and more expressive and creating a kissable pout. The timeless makeup rule suggests emphasizing either your eyes or the lips, and when it comes to making a big statement, a dramatic eye makeup complemented with soft nude lips and a radiant complexion is the go-to option regardless of the occasion and the time of the year. Nothing can ever compete with an undeniably chic blue smokey eye makeup featuring lovely accents of brown and finished off with a peach glow on the cheeks and nude lips. To copy the look, you’ll need to have the following makeup products and tools:
• Makeup base, foundation, concealer
• Peach blush
• Eyebrow kit
• Eye primer
• Eyeshadows in peach, brown and matte black
• Pigments in greyish blue and glitter
• Ivory eye pencil
• Brown eye pencil
• Nude lipstick
• Makeup brushes
Step 1: You should start with a clean and perfectly moisturized skin, applying the makeup base (Make-up Atelier Paris Oil Free Hydrating Base Foundation) and then the long-lasting oil-free foundation to guarantee your fresh look the entire night (Make-up Atelier Paris Waterproof Foundation Highlight). Cover any small blemishes and imperfections with the concealer. If you are a bit more skilled than an average beginner, you may like to use a contour kit to perfectly contour your face (Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in Medium Blush). Last but not least, apply a soft peach blush to add a radiant glow to your cheekbones.
Step 2: Powerful eyebrows can change so much in your expression, therefore never skip the step of contouring them using the most matching contour kit according to your natural eyebrow tone (ABH Duo Brow Powder in Ebony).
Step 3: Prep your eyelids for the makeup by priming them to prevent the eyeshadow from creasing and to ensure a long-lasting, smudge-free result. Blend a peachy eyeshadow in the high crease (ABH Orange Soda). Apply a medium brown shade deep in the socket of the eye and blend it well close to the nose (ABH Truffle).
Step 4: To accentuate the socket even more, apply a matte black color with a blending brush.
Step 5: Apply a greyish blue pigment all over the eyelid. Accentuate the lower lid with a brown pencil and smudge it slightly with a flat brush. Next, apply a sparkly brown eyeshadow on top of it (Truffle Glitter).
Step 6: Apply black eyeshadow as close to the roots of your eyelashes as possible. Highlight the tear duct of your eye with a glittery champagne pigment. Then, apply an ivory eye pencil to the waterline to brighten up the eyes and make them appear bigger.
Step 7: Use any type of a nude lipstick to finish off this lovely prom makeup look.
In case the colors of this prom makeup look don’t match your dress, you can easily change the blue color with any other shade you like.

So here we are going to speak about the basic and the best prom beauty tips, as well as the best and the most effective steps you should include in the list.
Prom Party Preparations
The Perfect Prom Dress
Starting with this part, we may first of all advise you to determine the style of the dress, the hairstyle and makeup, and this should be done for about 3 months before the day. When picking the options that look maximum effective you need to take into account a number of facts including the type and the shape of your figure, the complexion, the skin tone that matches a certain type of makeup and hairstyles, etc. You can choose your dress from a variety of options and styles from classic to retro. Some trendy techniques that your dresses may encompass are drapings or options with glittery details or textures.
The Prom Party Shoes
When choosing the shoes you need to find the ones somehow combining the comfort and the beauty, and it’s also a good idea to walk around the house in those shoes to break them a little bit before the prom to feel comfier then.
The Party Handbag
In order to have ideal looks, you need to work well on every detail. Picking the right handbag is another thing you need to do carefully and tastefully. Pick it to match your dress and the shoes in order to have everything in harmony.
You can also complete your looks with a great but, of course, tastefully picked pile of jewelry, including all of the items from necklace to rings. Making them match the overall color palette of your outfit, you’ll be able to get the most enviable looks ever!
This is also very important, and you need to find the exact scent for you, accentuating your personality and completing your beautiful looks. Not everyone knows how to choose your signature perfume, and it’s not only your likings that matter here, but also the occasion and the season of the year!
Perfecting the Skin and the Hair
It is also important to have your hair and skin ideally prepared and healthy to demonstrate their beautiful looks to the full. For this you may use some conditioning treatments for the hair weekly a month before the prom and to use some moisturizing products to keep the skin fresh and revitalized.
After having made sure you are picking everything right, you need to think over how to make all that work together. After that you should also take care of booking the appointments in the beauty salons, and the final fitting of the dress just to make sure all fits well. In order to perfect your looks to the full, you will also need to get you nails done in a week before the day.
Prom Beauty Tips
Passing to the general prom beauty tips and tricks you may use when getting impeccable and enviable looks, we can talk about a range of points, which go as follows!
Pretty Prom Hairstyles
In order to perfect your hairstyle (in case you’ve decided to make it yourself), you’ll need certain products to make the do last long and gorgeous. And to make this work you need products like,
• foundation, which will add some hold to the hair when used for damp hair (this can be a volumizing mousse, a flexible gel or just a hairspray),
• styling product, which may be a spray protecting against heat, or a flexible hairspray,
• cream being opaque and delicate to set the final touches.
Sizzling Prom Makeup
As for the prom makeup, there is again a range of products you may use. We can enumerate options like,
• primer, which will help your skin look better narrowing the pores and creating a smooth and soft effect,
• tinted moisturizer, which hydrates the skin and adds some healthy glow,
• light bronzer or powder blush, which will add a sweet tone to the cheeks,
• chic lipstick and/or a lip gloss for the ideal sassy lips,
• mascara, preferably a waterproof one, to use as a final brushstroke for the eyes.
Hiding Imperfections at the Last Moment
When a sudden unexpected and urgent thing arises like a zit or an inflammation right on the eve and you don’t have time for complicated treatments, simple tricks may greatly help you. For instance, you may make it less vivid really quickly using an ice cube (Check out: DIY Ice Cube Beauty Tips), which you need to place on the zit for 30-60 seconds and continue the treatment with a tissue moistened with eye drops for some 3 minutes more. Or you may make it work with makeup products, using a concealer applied with a tiny brush and softly fanning it around and on the problematic area to blend with it and to hide it. In order not to remove it, you may use patting motions instead of wiping, and this also refers to the way of adding the powder foundation, which will add some additional coverage. This might be tricky, but it is effective if you manage to do everything right.
Prom Makeup Tips and Ideas
1. If you want to get your lipstick last longer than usual you may apply the color, blot it down carefully with a tissue, add some powder to it and repeat the application of the color.
2. Talking about the overall complexion you should get with the makeup, we may emphasize the importance of lightening it up instead of going too dark. This in some cases also refers to the lips, as extremely active red or other dark shades are ultra-sensitive and attention requiring, but you shouldn’t be focused on your makeup instead of enjoying the day, right?
3. Avoiding glittery and shimmery textures for cheeks and the body in general is a good idea. This will create an extra undesirable feel of being over-groomed and kind of overdosed with makeup, and certainly that’s not what we are aiming at. Thus matte is what you should give your preference to for prom.
4. It is also important to line the eyelids correctly, thus concentrating on drawing the line from the center to the outer lid, avoiding outlining the whole eye, which will cause the eyes to look smaller.
5. In case you want to make your eyes look bigger, you can use options like a shimmery white powder applied to the corners of the eyes.
6. The proficient blend of the concealer, the foundation, the contouring and the eyeshadow is very important to have the natural and chic looks.
7. Go as natural and gorgeous as possible. This will create a better feel of being naturally cute and sweet than in case of showing the existence of heavy makeup.
8. Use some facial masks for revitalizing the skin the day before the prom. This will create the proper background for the makeup application. Simpler techniques may include some lemon scrubs done at night and meant to brighten your skin. After its application it’s also recommended using a moisturizer.
9. The sequential combination of the moisturizer, the primer, the foundation and the powder all applied to a clearly scrubbed face can be a good technique for making the makeup last long.
10. You may also use some false eyelashes to accentuate your eye makeup and to make it more impressive and eye-catching.
11. Try to balance everything including the colors on the face. Thus, you may combine the dark eyes with natural or pale shades of lips or vice versa.
12. For picking the right shades of the eye makeup, you may go for the traditionally unfailing options like a metallic cream shadow applied from the lash line to brow and carrying that sassy gold or bronze hue, finished off with some brown eyeliner to highlight the look. This can also lead to the smokey eyes, which can be achieved by adding some charcoal shadow to the lid and the lower lash line. To create a counterbalance and some contrast, you may also try a coral blush or a peachy or pinky nude lipstick. More attention-gathering looks may be achieved with the help of bolder shades for lips.
13. Experiment with curious and potentially effective shades like rose-gold, which will preserve the feel of being natural and on the other hand will add some chic and luxury to the looks. This is also a universal option for any skin color and makeup concentration.
Prom Hair Tips and Ideas
14. Use a dry shampoo even if your hair is clean and clear. This will help you make the do easier and better.
15. Also, it would be great if you knew how to match the hairstyle with the neckline of the dress you’ve chosen. In this way, it is recommended going for an all-down do if you have a strapless dress, a type of updo in case of gowns with a V-neck, side swept options for one-shoulder-offs, and updos for halters.
16. In any case, the classics are a never-fading and a never-dying option you can always opt for if you want some unfailingly chic results. This primarily refers to the combination of the hairstyle and the makeup.
17. You can go for some luscious curls or waves for a romantic and girly feel, of course, if this may be matched with the right shape and design of your gown.
18. Pick the hair accessories wisely. There is a wide range of accessories you may try out for completing your hairstyle, but still you need to be careful and attentive to create the combinations harmoniously. You can go for some trendy solutions like headbands, but don’t go to extreme lengths and overdo anything.
19. You can always opt for trendy and everlasting hairstyle options like ponytails of all types, still you need to be careful with dos like braids, to preserve the modern feel and the stylish looks.
20. You may also try to work on the hair color a bit and one of the options of doing this is adding some highlights to the shade of your hair. This is recommended doing weeks before the prom to have some time for fixing the look, if the shade doesn’t go well enough or if that’s not what you wanted.
Prom Nail Tips and Ideas
21. Apart from getting everything done from dress to makeup, it is also important to pay attention to the nails. Thus, you need to create some unique and matching looks in case of your nails as well, still not going to extreme lengths again. For instance, going for an animal-print is not what your best looks might include. The shapes of the nails also need to be classic, excluding the variants like pointy nails or the gothic-inspired options.
22. Don’t hesitate to pick a bold shade. This is the case when being bold and adventurous might help you with the ultimate results. Thus picking a bright and daring shade for nails is a good idea.
23. Keeping the nails neat and short is also a do, which is maximum comfortable and equally beautiful when decorated correctly.
24. Try to pick the shades that match the color of your dress and that of your makeup. For doing this, you need to know the compatibility of the shades and the ways according to which they may be combined.
Other Prom Beauty Tips
25. Do whiten you teeth either at home with some DIY techniques or going for specialized procedures. However, if you prefer to do that at home you may do that with whitening products or with the help of certain mixtures like the one with a bit of toothpaste and 1 tsp. of baking soda, which need to be mixed well with half tsp. of water and used after you gargle the mixture of ¬¨¬®≈í¬© hydrogen peroxide and ¬¨¬®≈í¬© mouthwash.
26. Another thing that’s recommended doing before the prom is waxing the eyebrows. Still, this is not something that needs to be done hours before the prom. There should be at least a 24-hour gap between them. Still, of you haven’t managed to do this and there’s no time left, you may just style them with a brush or an eyebrow comb and make them remain like that using a bit of styling gel (Check out: How to Fill In Eyebrows).
27. Have everything you might need for perfecting you looks. That implies having a compact and helpful touchup kit at hand, which should include the lipstick, some blotting papers, the perfume you’ve picked, some bobby pins, an antiperspirant, breath mints and other tiny details of this kind making the pack of everything you might need right away. This needs to be well-planned though, since taking into account the small size of the purse you’ll probably have, you need to consider the things you want to have, picking the most important ones first.
28. Finally, going for maximum subtle and delicate looks is the key to charm. This means that you shouldn’t overdose with any of the makeup products or the overall combinations, instead trying to be natural and just beautiful.
29. Try to pick some weightless and light scents for the day, as there will probably be a lot of varieties of heavier scents and perfume there. Just be the subtle one.
30. Finally, just be self-confident and enjoy the day to the full!
Thus, here were the most important and significant prom beauty tips and tricks we would like to introduce to your attention. Taking them into account you’ll be able to have the most impressive and unforgettable looks for that important and happy day!

How to Do Simple and Chic Prom Makeup
When it’s simple, it doesn’t mean that you don’t need appropriate makeup products and tools for a chic result. What you need to have to create this look is:
• Makeup base, foundation, concealer
• Eyebrow kit
• Eye primer and a base
• Eyeshadows in flesh, peachy-pink, brown and black
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Nude pink lipstick
• Makeup brushes
So the steps of this simple and chic prom makeup tutorial are as follows!
Step 1: Simplistic makeup looks really chic, if you manage to create the perfect base, that is camouflage your skin, getting the smooth effect. For this, you need to wash your face properly, apply the right makeup base depending on your skin type and then go for the foundation, which is advised to be applied with a makeup brush. To conceal any breakouts and skin flaws, turn to the concealer. Set your facial makeup with a loose powder and add a touch to color to your cheeks, using a soft blush tone.
Step 2: Now, it’s time to create the most enviable brows, using the brow kit in the color close to your natural brow tone. In case you think it’s something impossible to do yourself, check out our step-by-step tutorial on how to fill in eyebrows!
Step 3: It’s high time to prime your lids and apply a base in order to start the eye makeup process. To make your eyes look bigger and brighter, highlight the inner corner of the eyes. Do the same thing with the area under your brow line.
Step 4: Apply a flesh color to the inner part of your lid (Day Rate from ABH Catwalk Palette). Continue your way with a peachy-pink hue (Scout from the same palette).
Step 5: To get the seductive winged eyeliner look, grab a dark brown eyeshadow and apply it in a thin line to the outer corner of your eye (Couture and Beauty Mark from the previous palette). Now, highlight your lash line with a matte black eyeshadow (LBD from the same palette).
Step 6: Apply a brown tone to your crease (Truffle from ABH Lavish Palette). Blend the color with a warmer brown hue (Sienna from the same palette). Last but not least, apply a dark brown eyeshadow to the outer part of your lower lid (Couture and Beauty Mark from ABH Catwalk Palette).
Step 7: Finish off your gorgeous eye makeup with black mascara and false eyelashes for the maximum seductive look!
Step 8: As a final brushstroke, go for a nude dusty pink lipstick and you are ready for the prom party!
