Prom Makeup: Casual Glamour

We’ve all seen that ever popular vintage red lip look. The thick, black, cat-eyed liner, paired with deep scarlet lips. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, and it’s obviously popular for a reason. It’s a classic, and almost universally flattering. However, after a while it might start to seem cliché. If you love statement lips but want a little twist, try this look inspired by some recent runway trends. It features minimal eye makeup, subtly sculpted cheekbones, and vivid orangey-coral red lips (perfect for spring!). It’s a lovely way to incorporate classic glamour in a modern way without looking overdone.
