Get The Look: Soft Glam Prom Makeup Tutorial

Prom season has arrived, and it’s time to get prepped. From the outfit to the nails, the hair to the makeup, prom is the one night of the year that you can get dressed up and celebrate all your hard work. Thankfully, there’s no need to break the bank by getting your makeup professionaly done, because you can give yourself a makeover right at home.

But if there is one piece of advice the BEAUTY BAY staff can offer it’s to keep your makeup clean, classic and chic, think a soft neutral eye, dewy skin and a touch of highlighter. You still want to look like yourself, just a little more glam. 

There is no look more clean, natural and timeless than the iconic soft glam. To help, we’ve put together a super easy, soft-glam makeup tutorial to follow, that will pair perfectly with any outfit and ensure you won’t be cringing looking back, in years to come.

1. prep and glow

Start with a freshly cleansed face and prep the skin with By BEAUTY BAY 5% Squalane + Grapeseed Oil Serum Hybrid, then apply By BEAUTY BAY’s Glow Filter for a radiant, dewy base. 

2. base and blush

After applying your favourite base products (we’re talking foundation or a skin tint and concealer), apply By BEAUTY BAY’s Liquid Cream Blush to the cheeks, and blend with a makeup sponge

3. warm and bronzey

Sweep bronzer onto the cheekbones, temples, nose and jawline with By BEAUTY BAY’s Dream Delight Face Palette and a powder brush, to add a natural, warm glow. Then, set your face with a powder of your choice.

4. time for the eyes

Using the By BEAUTY BAY 42 Neutral Palette, take the shade Pecan and blend it through the crease with a fluffy brush.

5. shimmer lid

Then, take the shade Locket on a flat, dense brush and pack this onto the eye lid. Blend the two shades together for a seamless finish in the crease.

6. lashes

Finish the eyes by applying your favourite mascara, or false lashes if you fancy them.

7. highlight

Use a highlighter brush to apply By BEAUTY BAY’s Highlighter Palette to the high points of your face.

8. brows

Brush through your brows with the By BEAUTY BAY Brow Fixer Fibre Gel, for a natural, your-brows-but-better finish.

9. lips

Line your lips using By BEAUTY BAY’s Lip Liner in Whip.

10. gloss

Finish the look by applying By BEAUTY BAY’s Super Plump Lip Gloss to the lips, for a plump and juicy finish.
