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.



18-year-old Joe Moreno from Texas knew that there was only one special lady he wanted to ask to prom. No it wasn't his high school sweetheart or crush, but his mother. 

His mum Vanessa had never attended her own prom. She had dropped out of school at the age of 17 in order to give her son the best life possible. 

Joe spared no expense for the date, even buying her corsage and picking her up. 

Sharing pictures of the fabulous evening on Twitter, he went viral. Not only did his selflessness resonate with many people, but many commented on how radiant Vanessa looked. 

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Joe said that he had always planned on bringing his mum to the prom, and has even cleared it with the school before the event. 

"Me and my mum have a unique relationship, she has really pushed me to do the best and focus on the important things like school. My mum is also a great and caring individual who loves to have fun, through vacations and all. She has pushed me and my two younger siblings to be the very best."

Vanessa told the New York Post , that it was a perfect evening. 

"Sometimes people don’t know the sacrifices us mothers make. We just hope that it does get seen, and I am so glad my son did see my sacrifice and wanted to give back. It meant the world to me."

Joe added that they didn't expect to go viral. 

 "Me and my mom didn't really expect it to go viral. I love my mum with all my heart. I hope something that people would take away from the story would be to feel grateful for parents and their sacrifices. Cherish your parents and always make sure to give back."

What an amazing young man! 


Kylie Jenner crashed a prom in California on Saturday night.

Students at Rio Americano High School in Sacramento were shocked when the 19-year-old make-up mogul rocked up in a dusky pink satin floor-length gown with best friend Jordyn Woods.

Earlier in the week, Albert Ochoa, a student from the school, asked the reality TV star to be his date at the prom after he was rejected by a girl in his class.

(Apparently this the the man himself.)

Kylie happily accepted the invite and even shared an intimate slow-dance with the lucky fan in front of some very jealous classmates.

Of course, Albert’s sister Selena was on hand to capture the magic moment.

The surprise appearance comes just days after it was reported that Kylie and long-term boyfriend, Tyga, are taking a break from their relationship, but that didn't phase her.

She looked like was was having a ball and as she was followed by a professional film crew, viewers will likely witness how the night played out in a future episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

So, any lads out there in need of a debs date? Give Kylie a shout! 



We all know prom night is a big deal in the States and like all special occasions some people tend to go a little further than others with how they celebrate.

But American teen Azja Fazier has pretty much beaten everyone who ever wanted to claim the title of “Most Dramatic Prom Reveal Ever” as she hired professional dancer Floyd Wimberly to entertain her crowd – yes, she had her own crowd – before she revealed her prom look.

A video of the event – which has now been viewed more than 3 million times – shows Floyd dancing to Beyoncé’s Formation before he is joined by another dancer and a smoke machine.

Eventually the true star of the show Azja comes through a haze of golden foil to reveal herself – and her sequined feathered dress – to the crowd.

Is it too late to re-do our debs?



Well, that’s one way famous folk can create a night to remember… turning up unannounced at a high school prom.

That’s exactly what Justin Bieber did on Saturday night – and needless-to-say he created quite a stir.

Justin, 21, showed up wearing a black-brimmed hat and immediately hit the dancefloor. Understandably, ecstatic prom-attendees at the Chatsworth Charter High School in Los Angeles have since been sharing their excitement on social media. “THANK YOU @justinbieber FOR THE BEST PROM,” said one Twitter user.

Another declared: “I DANCED WITH @justinbieber AT MY PROM.” And with the hashtag #ccshprom soon trending, even the school’s official Twitter account weighed in, saying: “Justin Bieber showing up at our prom? I think we know who had the best prom this year.” The star, who has 63m followers, quickly replied expressing his thanks, explaining attending one had long been a dream.

Pupil Stefany Magadan tweeted directly at the star, apologising because he got “trampled by everybody”. “Definitely going down in history,” she added.

Apparently, Justin was recording music at the same venue Chatsworth High rented out for their end-of-year soiree, and the Canadian singer couldn’t resist joining in on the fun.

He was accompanied by his close friend and rumoured love-interest Hailey Baldwin, as well as model Gabby Westbrook, and songwriter Jason 'Poo Bear' Boyd.

Watch as Cranston convinces a boy’s crush to be his date for the prom. We have heard she has said yes! How can you not though? That was pretty epic…
