You’ll probably look like a million bucks walking down that staircase to your doe-eyed date. But after a few hours of eating, dancing, sweating and (dare we say…) kissing, that cakey makeup will leave you looking like a wet dog. Follow these steps to keep your makeup fresh and naturally gorgeous all night.
Avoid Prom makeup meltdown
First things first. You know you’ll be dancing like crazy on prom night. To avoid leaving half of your makeup on your slow-dance partner’s shirt, remember these must-haves:
- Oil-free everything. Because oil + sweat = runny makeup, girls. Ew!
- Water-proof mascara and eyeliner
- Water vaporizer, like Evian, which will refresh your makeup while cooling you off at the same time.
Now you have the secrets to keep your makeup from running and wearing off during the night, here are five fresh makeup looks choose from.
Get Luminous skin for prom night
To look fresh-faced and beautiful, it all starts with the skin.
First, you can prep with a tinted moisturizer. It will make your skin look dewy, while helping you avoid that pancake batter look. Try the Sephora Collection Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer in Medium 28 Camel (1) or Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Bisque (2), a new shade in between Nude and Sand. Then for a radiant glow, dust your skin with mineral powder like Bare Escentuals Mini Mineral Veil Flow-Through Buffing Brush (3), which is pre-filled with mineral-infused powder, or Make Up Forever High Definition Powder (4). Either will give you a perfect luminous base look.
