Prom Make-up Ideas

I remember the only thing getting me through my GCSEs was the thought of prom at the end of it. The one night where us regular folk can dress up like celebrities at the Oscars and it be considered the norm. Getting ready for it had to have been the best part, I spent a good part of two weeks prior to the big day trialing different make-up looks from a simple winged liner to a full on smokey eye. So I've decided to start a mini series showing you different make up looks you could try for your prom as inspiration.

To kick this series off, I'm starting with a simple winged eye liner paired with a bold red lip and glowy skin. Simple, yet effective.

To start with, I'd opt for a foundation that contains no SPF. The last thing you want is to be looking like casper the friendly ghost (unless of course your theme is fancy dress, in which case, go for it!)
Then go ahead and conceal any bags or imperfections. Follow up with a good mattifying powder to set your base and take away any unwanted shine. 
Fill in brows, then prime the lids. I used a soft shimmery champagne shade washed across the lids to give added sparkle and then I lined my eyes with a black liquid liner and winged it out slightly.
Throw on a layer of mascara or three and then apply some false eyelashes, natural fluttery ones would probably look best with this look and suit most eye shapes. 
I then warmed up my complexion by dusting bronzer round my face in the shape of 3 and then skipped the blush all together and opted for a pinky toned highlight. Finally I used a hot red liquid lipstick/stain to ensure that the colour lasts all night!
