Prom Makeup Tips

From finding the perfect gown to getting ready on the day of, preparing for prom is an exciting journey through every step of the way! However, many gals find themselves asking a certain question: how on Earth is my makeup going to last all night long?


Luckily for you, we’ve got you covered! If you want your glam to stay flawless through the entire final formal of your high school career, here’s a list of a few products you won’t want to leave out of your prom makeup routine:



First and foremost, you’ll want to start off with a hydrating primer. After cleansing and moisturizing, apply a generous layer of primer to your face and allow it to settle in. This creates a smooth base for the rest of your makeup to stick to, which not only makes your look last longer, but also prevents it from getting cakey!



Waterproof (and smudge-proof!) Products

You have a long night ahead of you of eating, dancing, sweating, and let’s be honest, probably crying. Thankfully, there is an abundance of makeup products specifically designed to withstand even the most high-energy of nights, and prom certainly isn’t an exception! Trust us: opt for waterproof mascara, smudge-proof eyeliner, a lip stain rather than a gloss or a stick, and you won’t need to worry about your glam staying put.



Setting Spray

The final step to achieving that perfect prom makeup you’re dreaming of is setting spray. After spending a good amount of time in front of your mirror getting ready, you’ll want to seal everything in with plenty of setting spray. This product is praised by beauty gurus everywhere as the holy grail of a long-lasting look, and you can guarantee you’ll look as great at the end of the night as you did at the beginning.
