Romantic details like ruffles, tiered tulle, and feminine florals are perfect for feeling like a princess (or prom queen) for the night. For an old Hollywood vibe with a little edge, try something more fitted or rock metallics, allover beading, lamé, and iridescence. Hues of pink will rule prom, from hyper-bright to barely there blush to the prettiest shades of peach, there’s a pink for every girl. The key to standing out comes down to unexpected styling. Leather motos, denim jackets, and sneakers are not just for everyday wear when paired with tulle and sequins – the look is next-level cool.
Add flair to the perfect dress with bold shoes, jewelry, handbags, and hair accessories. For some added sparkle, it’s all about earrings with a statement, including elongated drops and extra-long silhouettes with crystal or pearl details. Hit the dance floor with party-ready platform heels. Show some personality with creative takes on clutches like geometric shapes or shimmery crystal detailing. For the finishing touch, gorgeous hair accessories like combs, headbands, or pins will make an updo extra special.
Make prom night one to remember with Macy’s red carpet-inspired beauty looks. For a low-key boho vibe, stick to earthy eye palettes, peach lips, natural brows, and hair. The ultra-feminine good girl pairs a drama-worthy gown with soft pinks on the eyes, lots of lashes and a dewy complexion. For the rule breaker, experiment with smoky bright jewel tones on the eye. For a classic Hollywood look, go for a cat-eye and a bold lip. Lastly, embrace a 90’s supermodel vibe with a bronzed complexion, a smoky eye, and nude gloss on the lips. Don’t forget to take off the night with the newest trend in skincare – double cleansing. An oil-based cleanser will melt off makeup at first pass, followed by a water-based cleanser to remove all remaining impurities.
