Before being able to give you any tip you have to give more clues like: your dress color, you eyes color, hair etc. I also go for natural, but the clues I told about before helps in choosing the colors for the eye shadow. Tell me a little more and I will come with some proposals 4 you. :) Good luck with it. I can't wait to hear from you and I will be very glad to help you.

I think, but this is just my personal opinion, that brunet girls look great in red, green or pink. Anyway, whatever color you chose you should wear it on your eyes too. Of course not on the same shadow. Also, use an eye liner, black, little longer than the eye, it always makes the eye seem almond-shaped. Always use a lighter shade on the interior upper eyelid and a darker one on the end of it. Also use the same light shade on the interior of the eye, next to your nose and the dark color under your eye at the end of it, for about one third of your eye. Use a black mascara. You should use some blush too. I would recommend you a dark pink or some color close because you are young and that would make you your age. But don't put too much. You could try to put it under your cheek bones. If you go on coloring your eyes than use a light color lipstick or better just some gloss. If you chose to use a strong color lipstick then you should use just eyeliner and mascara for your eyes, as described above. I hope I was helpful to you and that you will make a good choice. And I bet you will be the most beautiful girl at the prom ball. And another thing. Test all the make-up ideas you have for your prom before it a couple of times, to know exactly what are you doing and how you will look like, to not have bad experiences, more stress and problems before you go to the party. You will be nervous enough, you don't need more stress. :) Good Luck!

That dress sure is pretty...I like it a lot. The makeup tip that I will give you, is to wear maybellines true mattee foundation, it is the most camera friendly.

I don't wear makeup personally, but I can advise you not to go overboard with the makeup. Let your natural beauty enhance the beauty of your dress. When I went to my prom, I had my sister put a little bit of blush, eyeshadow, and lip gloss on my face and that's it. They were pale tones that gave my face a bit of shine and I looked rather pretty. Hope this helps...have fun at your prom!!!

What a beautiful dress!! I'm a certified skin care and makeup consultant, so I think I can help! :) The first thing to keep in mind is you want to enhance your natural beauty so you look beautiful without looking made up. So you want to keep your colors as close to your natural skin tone as possible. Obviously I don't know what you look like, if you have problem skin, perfectly clear skin, etc, so I'm just going to give pretty random advice here. Be sure to wash your face and apply a light moisturizer before applying your makeup! Choose a foundation that matches your skin color. You don't want a dark foundation that makes you look like you're wearing a mask. On the other hand you don't want a foundation that's way too light, or you'll looked washed out and pale. Your foundation should even out your skin tone and give you a nice canvas to paint on :) With your dress a pale pink, you don't want to wear pink lipstick, blush, or eye shadow. Also keep in mind that proms are generally relatively dark, so to get your makeup to show up better and enhance your natural beauty, you'll want to apply it a little darker than you would say if you're going to the mall where it's nice and bright. With a pale pink dress, you should use a smokey color on your eyes. A nice dark mascara, charcoal eyeliner, and a dusty purple or even a gray eye shadow would go very nicely. And the best applicator for eye makeup is a small brush. I usually use a brush that comes with cover girl blush actually. Those are the PERFECT size for easy, one step eye makeup :) If you have any specific questions or concerns feel free to send me a private message!!

Drink plenty of water each day, and eat nutritious foods such as fish, fruit, veggies, and whole-grains. Your skin will glow. If you have acne-prone skin, do a tree tea oil steam facial. Wax or shave your legs, and underarms, and other parts where you have unnecessary hair. Waxing lasts longer and usually works better. Keep your nails looking nice. Keep your nails looking nice. Look at yourself in the mirror. What are your best features? Your legs? Your hair? Your mouth? Your shoulders? Now, think of ways you can enhance those features. Don't go with extra make-up. Everything in right positive way.

I would say get your hair done professionally unless you know someone who can do it really well. It will cost more butyo will look fantastic. Im not a girl but my date for prom looked ten times better with her all done up.

Brush a little brown blush into your cleavage to enhance it, it makes it appear to be deeper. The best thing you can wear is a big smile! Have fun.

Do not wear very high heels your feet will get tried to quick to enjoy the night. Eat a good breakfast that morning and try to take a quick nap if it is going to be a long night that way you do not get tried before the night is threw. But, most of all have a good time and try to take pictures to reminber the night.

I do makeup often, you might want to go for an evening look, not too much but you could enhance the eyes with eyeliners and shadow, but then less on the lips, or if you want you could do a bold color on the lips and less on the eyes. Not both at once. Check out this page: http://www.lhj.com/home/Makeup-Tips.html
