Even if prom is a month or two away, you should already be thinking about how you want your makeup done. If you figure it out in advance, you can practice the look so that you know you like it – and if you don’t, you have plenty of time to pick a new look that you actually love.
While you can of course wear whatever color you want, you might want to consider specific eye makeup for the color of your eyes. Different eye colors can be played up with certain hues to enhance your eyes and make them look even nicer. If you have blue eyes and you really want to make them stand out, stick with shades of terra-cotta, purple and bronze – all will enhance your color without overshadowing it. A neutral smokey eye is also better for blue, since black can be too much. Not sure where to start? Here are 12 easy ideas for prom makeup for blue eyes. My favorite thing about these options is that they can be worn for any event – not just prom! So even if you’re not attending a school dance, these are still worth checking out.
