Makeup can give you that special finishing touch for any prom look, so you can stand out from the crowd. Whether you are going for a low-key or high-fashion look, you want to make sure your makeup is done to perfection.

Although it would be lovely to have a professional come and do your makeup for the big night, this is not an affordable luxury for most people. We've got a few quick tips and tricks to help you take charge and get prom ready in no time, no stress.

Dress to Impress

You've probably spent a lot of time finding your dream prom dress, so it's important to centre your makeup look on it. Your makeup and dress should always compliment one another, rather than compete for attention.

For example, if you were wearing prom dresses in bright colours with embellishments such as this gorgeous number from JJ's House, a complimentary makeup look would be matching red lipstick with light eye makeup.

A heavily made-up eye area would be too busy for this style of dress and completely overdo your overall look.

If you're wearing a plainer style of dress like this JJ's House velvet gown, you can combine sultry, smoky eyes with your red lipstick as it's a makeup look that compliments the material and these styles of prom dresses.

Mirrored Magnificence

It might not usually be a good idea to copy other people's work or ideas, but when it comes to makeup looks, it's practically a recommendation!

We often see celebrities or models made up in a way that we think will suit us too – prom can be the perfect place to try it out!

The key to making this look work can be summed up in one word: practice! If you leave it until prom day to try it out, chances are it will be a complete disaster – it might look like a mess or just not look as good as you thought it would.

Prom night is not the time to work this out.

If you want to mirror the look of your favourite celebrity, practice and preparation are the best ways for you to get there.

Testing 1, 2, 3

One of the biggest things most people forget to do is make sure their makeup looks good in pictures. This is something that again is best to practice and prepare before the big night.

Flash photography can wash out your skin and makeup, and can make you look pasty and startled! You would be shocked to know what the biggest culprit for this is: moisturiser – or more specifically, moisturiser with sunscreen in it.

The sunscreen reflects the flash, completely washes out your face and mismatches the tone from your body.

Make sure you plan ahead and check to make sure the face cream or foundation you use on prom night does not include sunscreen. If it's only a small amount, you can try and take photos to test how reflective it might be.

Ever wanted to try lipstick that tastes and smells like your favourite food? Well today is your lucky day. 

MAC Cosmetics just announced the launch of its new makeup collection, and we are VERY intrigued. 

Global Senior Makeup Artist for MAC, Dominic Skinner, gave beauty-lover a sneak peak of the new Lipglass range, which features lip glosses in flavours like chocolate, raspberry and coconut. 

In an Instagram post, Dominic showed swatches of the lip colours, which range from shocking silvers to pale pinks. 

In his caption, he wrote: "#SeenBackstage  #MakeupSwatches for the #Lipglass from a #NEW #MAC collection These #Smell (I know coz I’ve smelt) and apparently #Taste (IDK coz I’ve not tasted) like their names"

Each lip gloss is named after a different tasty treat – Death By Chocolate, Banana Muffins, Coconut Macaroon, Funfetti Cake, Raspberry Cream and Strawberry Torte. 

There's no official launch date just yet, but we'll keep you updated as soon as we know more.

Just when you thought the fidget spinner craze could not possibly get more ridiculous – BOOM, lip gloss. 

That's right ladies, there are fidget spinner lip glosses now available to purchase.

Introducing the Glamspin – a collaboration between Buzzfeed Product Labs and Taste Beauty.

The colourful product is simply a fidget spinner with three built-in lip gloss compacts that all smell divine, we might add. 

Each of the three sections contains a different flavour of lip gloss: Peach Whirl, Strawberry Cyclone, and Grape Twist (all names with the fidget spinner in mind!)

The Glamspin costs a tenner, and while they currently don't ship to Europe, it is definitely on the cards, so there is hope.

The Glamspin will begin shipping to the U.S in mid-July, so hopefully we should see this bizarre invention on our shores before the end of the summer. 

This isn't the first time we've seen the fidget spinner affect the world of beauty (obviously!), remember when Beauty vlogger James Charles tried to contour with a fidget spinner?

Oh and let's not forget that majestic nail art that Natasha Lee created, that included a a real miniature spinner.

And if you fancy something a little bit more high tech Google dropped a fidget spinner app on its website recently – so get spinning!

Kylie Jenner is now adding lip glosses into her ever-expanding make-up line, and to celebrate it she made the most bizarre video.

Giving us all the 90's Britney vibes, the beauty mogul is seen sitting back in a open top Rolls Royce while sporting a Louis Vuitton bandana (which we literally haven't wore since we were about… 12).

She also arrives at a random motel and texts her friends "gametime" before trying to stage an armed robbery… Huh?

It's a strange one indeed, and what put the idea into her head, we don't know but, it really has to be seen to be believed.
