You’ve got the steeze so now it’s time to get the look and make sure you’re makeup game is as strong as your #ootd. We’ve teamed up with Lime Crime for the ultimate prom makeup looks to match you after-prom party vibes.

Flower Power

Prom makeup looks

Got a dramatic prom dress with a little tulle and a lot of sass? Get for a platform heel for those new season feels that are sure to put a spring in your step. Floral embroidery is¬†the look of the moment, so mix it up with some red floral embroidery with IONA and choose a lip shade from Lime Crime‘s Red Velve-tin to perfect your pout. Bonus points if you convert the tin into a clutch for a look that’s in full bloom.

Crush on You

Be a real crowd pleaser with the KARLA MULES. These shoe-drobe must-have’s keep it minimal with a hint of white and a perspex upper for a barely there vibe. Style your makeup in the same way and keep the colours pale for a pared back look but work in a Lime Crime Diamond Crusher¬†in Acid Fairy, Dope¬†or Choke¬†for a lit look that glistens on the dance floor.

Champagne Showers

Mules are your go-to this season and will keep you on your feet all night long. Go for a platform with the MISTY¬†with nude embroidered detailing. Mix up your lip shades through the night and stick with a golden pop that screams¬†champagne lifestyle. For a lip that’s sure to stand out, go for the trio in the Champagne Velve-tin¬†and keep it poppin’ all night long.

Keep it Clear

Go gold that is fit for a Qween, but mix it up with a perspex block heel in ARIELLE. Keep the look glam and go for a Diamond Crusher in pop-bright Strip for a hint of pink, or keep it golden with a lick of Lit or Cleopatra and shine bright like a diamond, bae.

Send Nudes

Mules meet metallics with the SIAN in gold, so make a statement fit for a Qween and treat your feet! Let your shoes do the talking and keep your pout pared back with Lime Crime’s signature matte velvetine’s¬†in Lulu¬†or Marshmallow¬†for a party perfect look that’s sure to nab you the prom queen crown.

Two Faced

It ain’t all about the lips, keep your look peachy keen with MISTY in rose pink and work your palette magic with the Lime Crime Venus Palettes and Hi-Lite Opals Palette. Mix your shades from the Venus¬†Original palette for a pink to match your mules. If pink isn’t your thing Venus II will give you a smoky eye that will stop ’em dead. No look is legit without highlight, so get your glow with shades that adapt to your skin tone. Looking good has never been so easy!
