16 Amazing Real Prom Makeup Before And Afters

Prom is the perfect excuse to go all-out glam. You can throw on those falsies, line those lips, and experiment with colors in a way that is totally too much for everyday life. It’s your chance to go from girl-next-door to drop-dead-gorgeous, just like in the movies (except you were probably gorgeous as the girl next door, but whatever, let’s just go with it for right now). If you’re a big fan of prom, then you fantasize about seeing your date’s face as he or she sees how amazing you look, and you picture yourself walking into the dance and watching everyone gasp. It’s a real fairytale moment in the making. This is exactly why prom makeup can be so important to many people attending

For me, getting ready for prom was almost more fun than the actual dance! The time I got to spend with my mom picking out my dress, the hours pouring over magazines with my friends trying to look for makeup inspiration, and the morning prep are all memories I cherish. I wasn’t romantically interested in my date, but I was romantically interested in the way I was looking that night! BAM. Because I didn’t wear much makeup in my day-to-day life, it was a little hard to adjust to the heavier look, but it ended up looking great.

Who doesn’t love a good transformation?! Here are some fun before and after makeup looks from girls getting ready for prom. They just might inspire you to try something new with your own beauty routine. Obviously these girls were all just as fabulous in the before photos, but sometimes it’s fun to see what makeup can do!

1. Is it just me or is airbrushing like IRL Photoshop?


2. From simple and gorgeous to makeup version simple and gorgeous!
