    You're really pretty!

    I know this sit is quite busy but the beauty section isn't the biggest part i'm afraid so you may be struggling for responses.
    Have you thought about checking out YouTube? There are tons of beauty gurus on there who do video make-up tutorials including ones for special occasions like prom. Some of the best people include Andrea's choice, Tanya Burr, Zoella, pixiewoo, BeautyCrush and a sprinkle of glitter. Check them out. Once you're on their YouTube page and click to see their videos there should be a little search box. So you could either go through their videos for inspiration of your own or use the word 'prom' in the search box to filter things.

    Hope you have a great prom :grin:

    your eyes are gorgeous! I would defintiely suggest looking at 'Tanya Burr' on youtube, she does 'celebrity make up tutorials' but they are always really achievable! I've got this one bookmarked for my year 13 prom in a month :-)

    but have a look around her videos, she's a professional make up artist :-)

    Beautiful dress! And you're very pretty I think natural is the best look for prom personally, as in subtle makeup. That's what I did for mine anyway

    Oh yeah definitely, since you have super bright eyes that won't be too hard! I'd just go with some eyeliner maybe, I find eyeshadow can be OTT for my eyes personally!

    Woaaaah I love the dress :gasp:

    My eyes are a similar colour to yours. To bring them out, I'd recommend a smoky eye - there are lots of tutorials on YouTube for this. Adding a touch of deep gold or brown really makes the blue "pop", too.

    I personally love making it quite dark and dramatic with an eyeliner flick etc, but I saw you mentioned in another reply that you ideally want to keep it quite natural. In that case, I suggest sticking to deep brown kohl, which you can smudge along the lashline for a subtle look that will really bring out your blue eyes.

    Something like... this: https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=e...os%3B280%3B170

    The Body Shop do a really great set of four gold-brown shimmer cubes which will help you to achieve this look (I have it and it's lovely!). Use a soft brush to sweep the lightest colour all over your eye, right up to your browbone, then use the darker colours as you go further outwards.

    Alternatively, you could use the set of grey-silver cubes in the same way - would tie in with the silver detailing on the dress.

    HI,

    your dress is lovely, to bring out your eyes i think you should have a black and silver smoky eye https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&rc...69601906607901 as blue eye make up might clash with the green dress.
    hope this helps x

    have a happy prom

    Thank you very very much! It was very helpful, and i will definitely try out the smoky eye look with the dress and try a more natural look - see which goes best!

    I got worried too but its because its relatively new it has a few flaws in the website! Yep, it more of a green/blue but other than that exactly as the picture i wouldnt worry about it!
