Prom Makeup and Hair for Bright Colored Dresses

If you opt for a bright color dress, try matching the pop color on your lips.  This looks amazing with spring trends like fuchsia, coral, and berry.  When you do a bright lip, try to tone down your eyes to let your lips shine and not look like your putting on too much makeup. 

To get this look....
Eyes: Urban Decay YDK eyeshadow in a smokey eye effect and on the lower lash line. 
Urban Decay Bootycall eyeshadow just on the brow bone.
Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes eyeliner in Black and wing it out.
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black

MAC Cosmetics blush in Smile.

NYX Round Lipstick in Chloe.

For the Hair...
I used a 3/4" curling iron with Sebastian Shine and Define Setting Spray.  I curled away from the face in sections.  Then combed through the hair with my fingers to soften up the look.  I finished with Sebastian medium hold hairspray.

Where to buy....
L'Oreal - Drugstores everywhere
