Prom Look 1

First comes the dress, next up is cosmetic strategy! Practicing your prom perfect face in advance is important so that you know exactly what look you will be going for on the night of the event. Choose your make up based upon the mood that your fashion statement evokes. Diaphanous silk chiffon ruffles pairs nicely with a softly romantic style, whereas a dramatic black dress can handle graphic or smoky make up looks. Be true to your own taste and you’ll be the belle of the ball no matter what you wear!


The VL pro’s have created two looks for the big dance that will match up with an endless variety of prom pretty frocks! This softly shimmering eye works well on all skin tones, plus a shot of long wearing black liner helps to emphasize the eyes. Add a little highlighter in all the right places for an all out glow!

Start by building a base on the lid with Duo Eye Pencil in Brown/Fawn Silk. Create a “crease color” along the outer crease of the eye with our Baby Dome Baked Eyeshadow Palette in Terrachino, an expertly coordinated palette of multi-finish textures, ranging from a pearly vanilla to matte cocoa. The versatile wet/dry formula easily transitions from neutral to a more dramatic application, it’s all up to you! Using a #18 Small Eyeshadow Brush, dip into the center color (malt) and using small circular strokes, blend powder along outer crease of your upper eyelid.

Also place this color on the outer lower lash line, bringing it into the middle of the eye area. Wipe off your #18 Brush with a tissue and next use it to highlight your browbone using the palest ivory shade from the Terrachino Baby Dome.

With a dampened #33 Flat Eyeshadow Brush, pat the Cangiante Dimensional Eyeshadow in Pazzia on top of the base color already on the lid to add a glimmering, prismatic finish. By wetting the brush, you’ll get greater pigment payback!

Now tightline the top lid with Duo Eye Pencil in Jet Black/Black Brown and use the same pencil for within the waterline. Two shades in one generous sized pencil offer silky color that slides across the delicate skin of your eyes, making the Duo Pencil particularly versatile.

Now to focus on the lashes we will curl them up and out using the Mini Lash Curler. This unique eyelash curler is small enough to help you curl lashes in sections, keeping the curler a proper distance from the root. Your eyes will appear more open and larger as a result! Add two coats of Volume Plus Mascara and Ardell Lashes in Faires for a flirty lash look that will really make your eyes stand out!

To finish off, add a wing liner to the top lid using Creme Gel Liner in Blu Raven and a #11 Slanted Liner Brush. Each richly pigmented shade of this amazing creamy gel is enhanced with a subtle pearl finish that gives added depth and dimension without ever looking dull or flat. It’s also smudge-proof and flake-proof, so your liner will last as long as you do!

Use our new Chiara Flush Stick in the coral colored Ardensa on the apples of your cheek and blend in using your fingertips. This easy to use hybrid stick of matte and shine provides radiant color and light-enhancing dimension. An outer core contains lush color, while the center is a complementary, softly shimmering highlighter. Swirl together for a glowing flush of color, or wear individually for a more sculpted look!

Add a touch of Water Canvas Highlighter in Mermaid Muse (a pearly pink) on to the bridge of the nose, cheekbones and chin. A hydrating, water-based product, Water Canvas contains botanical seaweed extract and Vitamin E to moisturize and protect skin.

Fill in lips with the Unione Lip Stylo in Andesina, a rosy nude with a hint of sparkle.  Use the pencil point to line the lip and then place the Stylo on it’s side and shade in the lip entirely. A sharpenable stylo allows for precision application, while the unique blend of emollients produces a rich texture that applies smoothly and effortlessly.

Wrap up by highlighting and brightening the under eye area using Perfect Canvas Liquid Concealer. The velour tipped, flow-through applicator delivers product effortlessly, evenly and streak-free, covering dark circles without being cake-y.

Select a shade one shade lighter than your natural skin tone for greater contrast; the skin will be illuminated and you’ll look refreshed, even after hours of dancing the night away!
