It's almost summer (we hope!), which means lots of you will have your proms or other special occasions coming up!
Here at MUA Towers we thought we would do a blog post of a few makeup ideas that you can wear to your prom, that wedding you're going to or simply on an evening out!
1950's Prom Look
For the first look we have gone for neutral eyes, some winged liner and red lips! Hot Pink lips - such as Shade 3 Lipstick would also look great!
For this look we have used the new Merged Eyeshadow Trio in 'Legendary', using the lightest shade to highlight the brow bone and swept into the inner corner of the eye and down to the inner corner of the lower lash line. We have then used the middle shade all across the lid.
We've added Liquid Eyeliner in 'Black' and Every Lash Mascara in 'Black'.
For the lips we have used our Lip Liner in 'Red Drama' and added the lipstick from the Lip Boom in 'Bring It' - for that extra little bit of Hollywood glamour use the lipgloss over the top of the lipstick!
Pretty Pink Prom Look
For this look we have used the Merged Eyeshadow Trio in 'Legendary' again, using the lightest colour to highlight the brow bone and inner corner, the mid colour on the lid and then sweeping the darkest shade into the socket line to add depth!
We've then added the 3 in 1 eXtreme Contour Eye Pen in 'Auburn' to create a winged liner on the top lid and a soft smokey liner on the lower lash line. We then used the E1 Eyeshadow Brush to add the darkest shade from 'Legendary' over the liner to give it a bit more of a shimmer!
To finish off we've used Mega Volume Mascara in 'Black/Brown' and then our Cream Blusher in 'Bittersweet' on our cheeks and lips for a lovely pretty pink makeup look!
Simple Smokey Eye Prom Look
A failsafe evening look that always looks great is a monochrome smokey eye!
We've used the Eyeshadow Trio in 'Smoke Screen' to create this look, team with a winged liner and some Every Lash Mascara in 'Black' you've got an evening classic!
If you're going for smokey eyes then why not team it with our Power Pout in 'Rendezvous' to give your lips a bit of colour that will really last!
We have a step-by-step guide of this eye look here
Smokey Eyes with a Twist
For this eye look we have created a colourful twist on a smokey eye - you could team this with nude or pink lips!
Why not match your eyes to your nails?
First off, choose your colour! - we've gone with pink from the Glitterball Palette, but any bright colour would look great!
Take the colour you've chosen into the inner corner of your eye, onto your lower lash line and about half way across your lid. Then add the black (or whatever darker shade you have chosen) into the outer corner. Blend the darker shade using upwards, inwards circular motions. Use the 3 in 1 eXtreme Contour Eye Pen in 'Black' to create a winged liner on your top lash line and a soft smokey liner on your bottom lash line!
A great colourful twist on a classic smokey eye!
