17 Ways To Wear Sparkly Makeup For Prom

Alas, there aren’t as many opportunities to wear sparkly makeup IRL as glitter lovers would like. I don’t know about you, but as much I would have liked to, it can be difficult to actually pull off a shimmering eyeshadow on a Monday morning Biology class. Luckily, we have prom.

Prom is the perfect place to play around with bold, fun, and shimmery beauty looks that you might not be able to wear every day. The goal is to still look like you’re attending prom not a festival. You also don’t want to look like a glitter bomb exploded on you. To help you get the balance of sparkle just right, I’ve rounded up some gorgeous shimmery makeup ideas to use as inspiration.

Keep scrolling to 17 gorgeous ways to wear sparkly makeup on prom night.

1. Gold Glitter Eyes

When eyes are this bold, keep the lips simple.

 

2. Shimmering Plum Eyeshadow And False Lashes

Purple vibes💜💜 Girls, who loves glitter, thumb up, I’m your soulmate🤪 Doing party makeup, or bridal look, I can’t imagine it without small touch of sparkles. I feel makeup become really special when there is little shine on the eyelids. Or not little, shine brighter😍 !!! Using pure pigment by @inglotjordan #120. On lips is one of the most beloved by me and my clients Ultra matte lipstick by @colourpopcosmetics in shade #Viper. #makeupbyme #partymakeup#bride#makeupbyme #beforeandafter #beforeandaftermakeup #partymakeup#bridalmakeup#amman#ammanjordan#ammanmakeup#makeupartistamman#makeuptutorial#makeupartist#ammaninsta#amman_girl#ammanmodels#beautyblogger#makeupaddict#uae#dubai#lebanon#beirut#ammaninsta#beautifulgirl #photographyamman#ammanphotographer#glitter #glittermakeup #mattelips #mattelipstick

3. Brown And Gold Shimmery Eyes

Однажды я зашла в Будапеште в H&M – спонсор не только моих модных луков, но и некоторых находок в кейсе – и нашла там эти жидкие мерцающие голографическим блеском тени, которые я и использовала здесь в качестве блика на веке. Оттенок You Had Me at Holo и, по-моему, это лимитка. Определённо моя любимая блестяшка на ближайшее время. А ещё у H&M совершенно потрясающие кремовые румяна – самые стойкие из испробованных мною. #настин_макияж #sparklymakeup #instabeauty #holo #макияжкалининград

8. Sparkly Cat Eye And Eyeshadow

✨ Милые дамы! В Тюмени есть множество хороших визажистов (…здесь могла быть их реклама), и если вы хотите качественный стандартный макияж в приглушенных серо-коричневых оттенках – вы можете смело выбрать любого из них, в том числе и меня, не прогадаете (но это неточно). ✨ Но! Если ваша душа просит чего-то особенного, яркого, красочного, сочного, то надо ей это подарить!🌹 Если вы хотите побаловать себя максимальным преображением, удивить окружающих, а возможно и вызвать завистливые и ревностные взгляды – тогда вам однозначно только ко мне✨ Я выполняю яркий макияж так, что он полностью подходит вам и дополняет вас, и никогда не выглядит вульгарно (хотя, если требуется этот эффект, можно накрасить и так😄). Почему мои способности так отличаются? Возможно, потому, что я Водолей😄 Это очень креативные и живущие на радуге люди (вспомните крутых визажистов с яркими работами – Ольга Томина, Татьяна Золоташко, Эля Булочка – все они Водолеи). ✨ И я имею честь пригласить всех желающих навести себе красоту и лоск)) Записывайтесь в ЛС или по тел. 89091880890. #макияжтюмень #восточныймакияж #макияжсблестками #brightmakeup #sparklymakeup
