Prom Makeup

Prom season has come around again, so I've put together a few makeup looks that would be perfect for your big night! 

Pretty in Pink

This is the perfect soft and sophisticated eye makeup for your prom night.

What you will need:

  • Start by pressing 'Pink Freeze' eye shadow in to the inner corner of your eye with a pencil brush. 
  • Softly blend 'Sushi Flower' in to the middle and outer corner of your eye and blend just slightly above socket line but do not take too far up towards the brow. 
  • Blend 'Cranberry' in the outer corner of the eye and in to the socket line, take it underneath to the bottom lash line as well and blend well.  
  • To add extra definition use a small amount of the darkest colour 'Sketch' in to the outer corner and the socket line and blend well. 
  • Add 'Blacktrack' liquid liner on top lash line and 'Fascinating' Eye Kohl in your bottom waterline. 
  • Add your mascara and/or lashes

Quick tip: When applying lashes, put the lash glue along the base and leave to dry for about 60 secs. This way the lashes will stick straight away with out you having to hold them on. This makes putting lashes on a lot easier. Also make sure you measure the lashes to your eye before you stick them on, 9 times out of 10 you will need to trim them slightly. 

Glitz and Glam

If you want to add a little sparkle to your prom outfit, the perfect way to do this is with a simple glitter eye!

What you will need:

  • Apply Eclair Paintpot all over your eyelid and blend properly so it fades out towards the brow. 
  • Use wedge eye shadow to make edge a little softer and blend a bit easier. 
  • Use the Glam Crystals Eyeliner (You could use any colour, I have chosen the gold) and apply straight on to the eyelid from the wand. 
  • Use feline Kohl pencil and blend this in to your lower lash line and also apply in your waterline. 
  • Apply Mascara and/or lashes which ever you prefer. 

Quick Tip: Using glitter liners are easier than the loose pigment as you don't get any fall out. when using these liners build up the intensity of the pigment by layering up, make sure you wait a few seconds between each application for the glitter to dry. 


This is a classic and timeless look that will go with any dress you choose! 

What you will need:

  • Apply 'Painterly' Paintpot all over your eyelid as a base. 
  • Using a small angle brush take your 'Smut' eyeshadow and carefully etch out a line where  your crease is. Blend this out with a soft fluffy brush but try to keep the sharp edge in the crease for the 'Cut Crease' effect. 
  • Add a small amount on 'Carbon' eyeshadow in to the outer part of the eye to make it look a little more dramatic. 
  • Smudge 'Carbon' in to the lower lash line and blend well. 
  • Create your flick liner using 'Blacktrack' Fluidline. (Click here for more detail on creating the perfect flick liner)
  • Add 'Feline Kohl' Eye Pencil in to lower waterline.
  • Finish with 'Haute & Naughty' Mascara or False Lashes. I used corner lashes to emphasize the feline shape even more. 

Natural Beauty

This is a great look for you girls who like to take it back to basics but still want a beautiful makeup! 

What you will need:

  • Apply 'Painterly' all over eyelid. 
  • Use a fluffy brush and blend 'All that glitters' eye shadow on to eyelid and blend out towards the brow. 
  • Take a small amount of 'Dazzlelight' eye shadow and press in to the center of the eye, creating a highlight. 
  • Use 'Coffee' eye pencil to line your upper and lower lash line & smudge it in to make it softer. 
  • Apply your mascara. 
Smokey Eye

Sexy smouldery eye is a certain way to make an impact!

What you will need:

  • Using a fluffy brush, blend 'Blackground' Paintpot all over the eyelid. Use this as a guide to where you're going to add your eyeshadow. Make sure you blend well. 
  • Add 'Carbon' eye shadow over the top of the paint pot. Pat the colour on and blend it outwards.
  • Pat 'Cinderfella' over the top of the 'Carbon' eyeshadow and blend the edge. Don't over blend it or the glitter pigment will fall out. 
  • Take 'Carbon' and 'Cinderfella' eyeshadow underneath the lower lash line and smudge it in. 
  • Use 'Feline' Eye Kohl in the waterline.
  • Apply False lash mascara and/or False Lashes.

Pop of Colour

A simple yet effective way to add a burst of colour to any outfit! 

What you will need:

  • Using the 'Perfect flick' technique, create a liner using 'Macroviolet' Fluidline. 
  • In the lower lash line apply 'Designer Purple' Pencil and smudge in with a small brush. Be sure NOT to apply this pencil in to your waterline. It has small glitter particles which will irritate your eye.
  • Use 'Fascinating' Eye Kohl in your waterline.
  • Finish by applying your Mascara or False Lashes. 

Quick Tip: Using a lighter eyeliner in your waterline makes your eyes appear bigger. Apply the darker liner in to your lower lashes but not in the actual waterline. Use a colour like 'Fascinating' or a skin colour pencil to give the illusion of wider, bigger eyes. 

I would love to know what you think of these looks. Which one would you choose?
