Prom Makeup Tips
Start using a lip balm or moisturizer -- color fades unevenly on dry, chapped lips. Don't use harsh treatments on oily skin -- you could actually increase the oil in your skin. Instead, create a skincare routine using cleansers and balancers that have been customized for your skin type.

The Base. Apply moisturizer. Use concealer under your eyes. If your foundation wears away easily, try a formula with a little oil -- sounds strange, but it works. Apply a small amount of foundation to the tip of your index finger, dot on forehead, nose, cheeks and chin then blend in an upward and outward motion without a line. Be sure to apply foundation over your eyelids and blend. You can use a concealer to cover imperfections such as blemishes and dark spots. Using a powder brush apply translucent powder in a downward motion for a smooth finish. Translucent powder helps eye makeup and blush to go on smoother and blend better. It also keeps your face looking fresh and your makeup will last longer

The Cheeks. Use a powder-based blush -- it will last longer than a cream blush. Your Blush should go on the apples of your cheeks to radiate when you smile. It should go no closer to your nose, but directly beneath the iris of your eye; below nostril-level and into your temple hairline. A good blush brush that's tapered for precise placement, is a must. Alternatively, try a cheek stain -- just be sure to blend fast. Once the stain sets, it stays put.

The Eyes. Prep your eyelids with an eyeshadow base or a little face powder. Starting at your lash line, apply your Base Color first, then apply your crease color in the crease area Apply your Highlight Color in the highlight color area, below the brow bone. Finally, blend the colors with a cotton ball or your fingertip to remove any obvious line. If the colors are too bright tone them down with a little Translucent Powder then apply your Mascara, and dust your entire face downward with Translucent Powder

The Lips. Try these steps for a lasting, kissable smile. Skip your lip moisturizer, or apply it at least an hour before starting your makeup. Prep your lips with a little foundation -- to give the color a base. Using a lip liner, first outline your lips, then fill them in for an extra layer of color. Apply your lipstick with a lip brush. Use a lip liner that is lighter or close to the lipstick color.Apply one layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue, and apply the second layer. To make thin lips look fuller, line outer lips with a darker shade of lipstick or liner before filling it with a complementary color. Top it off with lip gloss. For color that really lasts, try a lip stain. This is a particularly good choice if you want a bright, high maintenance lip color, like ruby red.

Test Drive Your Makeup. You should test your makeup at least two weeks before your prom to leave time to make any adjustments. Give your finished makeup a few minutes to set.Keep your makeup on through at least one meal, and see how you look after a few hours. If you're still picture perfect with just a few minor touch ups, you've got a winning routine. Now get out there and smile!
