Prom 2012 makeup trends are electrifying. This year is all about dramatic eyes, red bold lips, blue eyeshadow looks,lots of shimmer and dramatic eyeliner looks. These looks have been a huge smash since 2010 and still going strong. If your dress is perfect and your makeup is a mess, then this can destroy your whole look. Here are some tips, which will help you achieve your desired look.

Dramatic Eyes

This can be the smokey look using brighter colors than the normal dark hues such as grey and black. Or 3 tone colors to create a dramatic look using bold reds, bright blues, neon greens, electric purple, and intensifying tangerine.

An awesome product to be sure to check out is the new Maybelline tattoo cream eyeshadow. I haven’t tried this eyeshadow yet, but to be perfectly honest with you, just looking at the color shades it’s definitely worth looking into. Choose from an awesome purple, intense teal, fun cranberry, a tangerine type color, gold, emerald etc.

Shimmer Away

Go ahead give your eyes that sultry shimmer look this prom. Don’t be afraid to combined an array of colors. Opt for a brown taupe with a white shimmer, pastel green with gold, fuchsia with copper or even a black plum mixed with a white.

Blue, Blue, And More Blue

Whether you opt for a light blue, teal, turquoise, neon, or electric, your eyes are bound to get noticed. Blue shadow was a huge hit back in the 80’s, and celebrities today are recreating this look all over again. This year 2012,Selena Gomez sported a electric blue look with thick bold eyeliner, Ashanti wore a dark navy smokey eye with winged liner, and Tyra Banks wore a bluish gray look on top and bottom of eye. Don’t be afraid if it’s too light, too dark, or pastel, anything goes.

Rocking Liner

Be daring. Try the open edged liner technique, thick and squared, cat eye, double sided cat eye, graphic look, fairy winged, mirrored wing effect, or the light and subtle look. Some of the best liquid liners to me are Revlon ColorStay, Almay Intense Color Play, Prestige Liquid, and Maybelline Line Works. All of these products are under $10.00.

Bold Bodacious Pouts

It’s all about the brightness and making your lips scream “Wow.” Shades that are hot for lips this year are bold red, bright purple, deep fuchsia, Bold orange, and all sorts of neon shades.
