Subtle Shine, Dewey skin
Dewy skin is IN! This rose gold liquid highlighter illuminates complexions of the young and those a (tiny) bit older. As a result, it creates a slight sheen without any glitzy sparkle. makeupforever.com; $29
Rich bold lips are a big part of the makeup trend this season. But, the look can be tricky to apply and keep intact. One way to sustain the look during photos and cups of prom punch? Ditch the lip liner and gloss and stain away instead with this lip stain in an easy-to-use stick. tartecosmetics.com; $24
The newest salon trend of lifting eyelashescomes in this tube of L’Oreal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara. Most notably, the wand does double duty. In its straight position, the lengthening mascara glides on. In its bent position, it’s a breeze to reach inner and outer corner lashes. walmart.com; $11
Nope not braces—chic, metallic lips in neutral shades. Longevity is achieved by lining and filling lips first in a similar shade. Then swipe on Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallics for a runway—if not Instagram—worthy pic. maccosmetics.com; $22
Natural With a Little Bit of Liner
With all the color and drama this season brings, equally popular is the natural look. If you or your girl prefers the less-is-more vibe, neutral shades were seen all over the runways. Especially with just a little pop from liner along the waterline. Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio, Universal Looks Collection from Physicians Formula comes with three slightly glittery colors. physiciansformula.com; $12.50
