3 Prom Makeup Looks for Any Style


Spring time has officially arrived, and at last prom is within reach! Prom season is always so much fun, and is the perfect place to try out a new look. It is your time to shine, so take advantage of the big night and go all out with prom hairstyle and prom makeup looks! Paired with your dream prom dress, the night is sure to be a memory you treasure forever. Here at Faviana we looked into some of our favorite beauty trends, and here are 3 Prom Makeup Looks for Any Style! 

Soft Glam

This makeup look is all about keeping it natural and subtle, while still looking glam! All that is needed to achieve the base for this look is to apply foundation, contour or highlight to your preference, and fill in the brows. For the eyes use a soft pink or beige, and add a small wing or lightly smudged out smokey eye for a touch of drama. For lips, opt for a matte beige or your favorite neutral. This look is ideal for balancing a detailed or glam dress, and is one of the easiest looks to achieve. Check out our collection of cold shoulder prom dresses.

Some of our favorites for this look:

  • Primer- NYX Born to Glow illuminating primer
  • Foundation- Studio fix by Mac
  • Contour- Anastasia Beverley Hills contour kit
  • Eyes- Chocolate Bar Pallet by Too Faced cosmetics
  • Liner- NYX gel liner
  • Brows- Anastasia brow definer pencil
  • Lips- Colourpop liquid lipstick
  • Finishing Spray- NYX

Golden Glam

This glam look is all about the golden browns, and understated metallics! Here is it best to focus on shades that are closest to your skin tone, and only add a little accent color if needed. It is all about the highlight for this look, and be sure to have moisturized, bright skin before beginning. Try a shimmery base color for the lid, and fill in the crease with a golden brown for gorgeous sun-kissed look. A glossy nude lip is perfect for finishing off this look, and add gold accessories to bring the whole outfit together. This golden glam would be perfect with a black prom dress, allowing you to add accessories or jewelry as you please. 

Some of our favorites for this look:

  • Primer- Pore Professional by Benefit
  • Foundation- Too Faced Beauty balm
  • Contour- Smashbox
  • Highlight- Smashbox
  • Eyes- Stilla 
  • Brows- Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade
  • Lips- The Balm liquid lipstick 
  • Setting spray- Makeup Forever 

Hollywood Glam

This look is all about the glam! With this look you definitely need a statement dress, and a #girlboss attitude. To achieve this look go for your most fierce wing, bold brows and a pop of color for the lip. A classic hollywood look is to smoke out your winged liner, try adding a dark grey shadow to your crease to make this look red carpet ready. To get that perfect dramatic wing, use scotch tape to get that crisp angle. Any style goes in hollywood, so pair this glamorous look with a show-stopping gown, like our long prom dresses.

  • Primer- Honey dew me up by NYX
  • Foundation- Pacifica Ultra CC cream
  • Contour- NYX cream contour pallet
  • Bronzer- Hulu bronzer by benefit
  • Highlight- Champagne Pop By Becca Cosmetics
