Whether your dress has sparkle in it already or not, it can never hurt to wear a glow on your face! This gives your homecoming makeup a subtle glam and sun-kissed look that’s not overkill. Complete this by doing a natural-looking contour and major highlight under your eyes and on your cheekbones to keep you looking photo-ready. You’ll shine throughout the whole day and night, without taking away from your outfit. Add a touch of blush and your face makeup is set!

Even for homecoming, it’s all about your brow game. The key here is to create full, natural-looking brows. To do this, we suggest using a brow pomade, pencil, or eyeshadow. Start by brushing your brow hairs upward, trimming and tweezing any unwanted hair. Then, outline your eyebrows, staying as close to your natural shape as possible. Finally, fill those babies in! The colors used should be the closest to your hair color to add more of a natural look. To keep your brows in place all day, seal them with a clear mascara.

For some reason, a peachy-pink color seems to match everything. So no matter what color your dress or skin tone is, this shade will complement you flawlessly. Give your eyes a sweet glow with some rose gold powder around the lashes and lids. You can choose to complete a subtle smokey eye using neutral tones. Then, simply draw along top and bottom lash lines with a cream pencil, connecting at inner and outer corners. You want to keep the focus on your eyes, so add in a shimmer to stand out more!

Over The Top Lashes

Homecoming is one of the times that you get to play up your makeup, so exaggerate those eyelashes! To get the curliest lashes, swipe on a thick coat of mascara, let it dry, and repeat on both your top and bottom eyelashes. You can simply use an eyelash curler and a mascara formulated for volume for the most flirty lashes out there. Still, you can opt for falsies if you prefer them. Either way, your eyes will stand out in pictures and on the dance floor. Finish the look off with just a swipe of nude gloss, and your homecoming makeup look is complete!
