How to get the Perfect Homecoming Makeup


So, Homecoming is approaching fast and you’d like to look as fresh as the fall with a stunning new dress, and a makeup pallet, which will enhance your natural beauty making you stand out from the crowd, and maybe even take home that Homecoming Queen crown!


As we all know homecoming is a huge opportunity to get glam with all your girlfriends and get that perfect selfie. But with the perfect selfie comes the perfect preparation and the perfect makeup, so we’d like to pull out all the stops and tell you our top 3 favourite makeup tips, perfect for Homecoming!


The silver glitter eye


Sparkle with some stunning silver glitter eyes! Now this may look rather drastic but it’s an effect, which you will love. A silver glitter eye is the perfect choice for those dresses, which sparkle as brightly as you do. Is you dress dipped in sequins? Or is it laced with some beautiful embellishment? The rule here is simple, if your dress is glistening then make sure your eyes do. We recommend silver because glitter and sparkle on homecoming dresses and prom dresses alike, is usually silver and it complements any colour. It will make you look fresh, on trend and perfectly glitzy.  Below you will find our favourite dress choices for the sexy silver eye.

TOP TIP: Compliment your glitter eye shadow with a lengthening pair of false eyelashes. If you want a more dramatic effect then go for an extra thick, extra full pair.


The modest pink pout


To look effortlessly beautiful for Homecoming, be sure to perfect your pout with a pale pink lipstick. By choosing a paler pink colour it really opens up your face making you look fresh, young and stunning. The paler your lips are the wider scope you have to really go town with your eyes selecting a range of colours and shimmers.  We absolutely LOVE the new Colour Riche Balm by Loreal as it keeps your lips beautifully moist and hydrated with a luscious blend of colour tones.




TOP TIP: For perfectly smooth kissable lips, preparation is the key. Gently brush over your lips first with a toothbrush to remove any dead and rough skin and dab on some Vaseline so they are super smooth.


Bronzed and beautiful cheeks


Achieve that healthy summer glow! Sadly the beach season is coming to end, but don’t be disheartened as you can still achieve a sun kissed look with the help of a little bronzer and glow at Homecoming. Apply your bronzer generously to the apples of your cheeks whilst being careful to trace your jaw line lightly. Add a dab to each temple for an all-over summer glow.

Top Tip: For evening makeup, always add a little extra than what feels comfortable because in the dark sometimes it can look like your not wearing any makeup at all on pictures.
