Prom Makeup Tips

Prom makeup is so much fun because you don't have to do much to make a powerful impact. We asked Suzie bond of Perfect 5th Salon in Mooresville, NC how she creates a great look on her prom customers. Here's what she told us:

Eyes

I like to begin with a gentle smoky eye utilizing plums and soft browns. Start with a deep plum shadow to define the lash line on the top lid.  Using a shadow will create a thicker, softer line than a pencil will.  Connect the outside of that line and follow it up and around to create a triangle.  Fill in the lid and upper brow bone with a soft pink or light tan.  Now deepen the lower lid area with more plum or brown, blending up toward the brow bone to deepen the eye.  Grab a liner pencil like Mirabella's Plum to line the lower lash line for a stronger look.  Connect the line at the outer corner with the upper lash line and contour line for a "cat eye" effect.  For a photo finishing touch use a silver or white shadow at the inside corner of the eye as well as a fine line under the lower liner. Adding white at the inside corner and right under your lower eye liner will make your eyes look brighter. This is especially good for girls whose eyes are deep-set or have dark shadows. Add lots of mascara or some false eyelashes to top it all off!

Skin

Keep it dewy and natural.  Clean off cheeks from any eye shadow dust.  Make sure skin is moisturized, concealed, and then add a light touch of foundation. Test the foundation color on the back of your hand between your thumb and pointer to get the correct shade. If your foundation doesn't match your skin tone, it will be hard to blend your foundation color with the rest of your skin, and you could end up looking like you're wearing a mask, so the right color is really important.  Cheeks just need a touch of blush in a soft pink or peach to make the eyes stand out! When applying blush smile at yourself in the mirror and sweep your brush on the "apples" or roundest part of your cheeks from the area closest to your nose back toward your hairline, following your cheekbone.

Lips

When wearing a smoky eye, the lip should remain a bit more natural and soft.  I like to use pink for a youthful look: My favorite look is to line the lip with Mirabella's SHY line and fill in the lip with Flicker from the Mirabella Luxe lip line! Keep q-tips, lip color and tissues in your purse for touch ups throughout the night.

I have ALOT of friends. I used to have one BFF but she ditched me. After that, I couldn't trust people. I started making more friends so someone would be there for me and I would be there for them. Now, I don't have a BFF. Just a ton of close friends, which I like. But I don't know if I made the right choice of doubting everyone or not.

I'm like my mom and my brother is like my dad, but I can't talk back to my mom because it's rude, even if I wanted to. I will always love my family, though. no matter what. My parents used to be strict, but not anymore too much.  When I was in trouble, it was my mom I was afraid of to face but if I was going to get punished, i was afraid of them from my dad.
