Prom Perfection: Glitter Glam

It’s time to show some excitement as you are about to witness the most epic night of your teen life! If you have picked “the one” from the trendiest short prom dresses, let’s get straight to what makeup would look the best with it! 

  • Firstly, apply primer to keep your makeup in place all night! Next, use a full-coverage foundation and then cover your blemishes with the help of a concealer. Set everything with a translucent powder!
  • For the eyes, go for a glittery eyeshadow, followed by a few coats of mascara! 
  • Opt for a blush in a subtle, soft shade of pink or coral!
  • Coming to the lips, think of a bold shade like red, fuchsia, or plum! 

Formal Fiesta: Dewy Nude

Got an invitation to a formal event? Are you planning to grab the limelight with some fabulous short formal dresses? Well, for fancy events, what could be a better option than a dewy makeup look? Let’s decode the look! 

  • Start by prepping your skin with a hydrating primer, and then use a water-based foundation to achieve a dewy finish.
  • Use a neutral eyeshadow palette to create a soft, smoky eye look. Complete the look with brown eyeliner instead of black and loads of mascara coats. 
  • Opt for a nude lipstick and top it off with a sheer lip gloss for a luminous look!
  • Instead of a blush, go for a cream highlighter! 

Wedding Bliss: Soft Glow

Steal hearts and groove all night without the fear of tripping with short wedding dresses! And, to feel comfortable and radiant throughout the event, a soft makeup look is the perfect solution! Let’s get straight to how to do it! 

The wedding lasts long hours, so make sure you use a lightweight foundation!

  • Use soft, neutral eyeshadows with a hint of shimmer to brighten your eyes. For an extra dramatic effect, wear false lashes!
  • Use a soft pink shade as a blush, and add a shimmery effect with a dab of highlighter!
  • You can pick any nude lipstick to complete the look; however, red lips never disappoint for a grand affair like a wedding! 

Date Night Glam: Bold and Tempting

You definitely need to look sensuous at your date, girl! So, get ready to steal his heart by opting for a look as bold as you! A short dress will undoubtedly make you look and feel fabulous, but a bold makeup look would amp up the romance! 

  • Begin with a matte primer and then a matte foundation to keep your makeup in place all night.
  • Create a bold, smoky eye look using dark eyeshadows, like deep bronze and chocolate brown! Then, wing it out with a black liner! 
  • Contour your cheekbones and apply a warm blush for a flushed look.
  • Go for lipstick in a deep shade because it will make you feel confident, sexy, and irresistible!  

Daytime Brunch: Fresh and Natural

Finally, you and your squad are heading out for brunch at one of the coolest cafes in town! No wonder you want to look cute and easy-breezy, right? So, we have a perfect brunch look for you: a short dress and a natural or “no-makeup makeup” look! 

  • Achieve a fresh-faced complexion with a lightweight tinted moisturizer or BB cream.
  • Coming to the eyes, keep it light and bright with a nude eyeshadow in the brown hue.
  • For a sun-kissed glow, opt for a baby-pink blush! Skip the highlighter!
  • Use a tinted lip balm or lip gloss for a subtle hint of color.
