Winged eyelinerWinged Eye Liner
Winged liquid liner adds something special to your prom look, and its super simple and easy to achieve. All you need is a good liquid liner – gel liner works well, too – and a little practice. Rather than simply staying on the lash line, when you reach the outer corners of the eye, drag the line upwards and outwards a bit. You can experiment and play with this look until you achieve the exact look you’re going for. This can be seen on the runway from designers such as St. Laurent, Prada, and more.

Bright multi-colored lip look Lips on Fire
Another hot runway trend that you can incorporate into your prom look is the ‘Lips on Fire’ technique. Take a rich berry hue lipstick, and apply it to the outer edges of the lips as you would a lip liner. The only difference is, the line will be much thicker and you will want to blend with a lip brush or your fingertip towards the middle a bit –but don’t go too crazy. On the inner portions of the lips, apply an orangey red hue and blend outwards. Voila! Instantaneous beauty. This look can be seen on the runway from such designers as Burberry & Dolce & Gabbana.

Sexy brown smokey eyeBrown Eyed Beauty
Take your runway makeup to a whole new level. The ever beloved brown eye shadow is making big waves on the runway this year in various chocolatey hues, and now is your chance to get in on the look by incorporating it into your own personal prom style. There are many different variations as to how you can apply this particular shade, but the point is to make sure you incorporate it somehow – that is, if it matches your dress, of course. This look can be found on the runway in designer models from Givenchy and Gucci.

Bright eye liner look White or Bright Eyeliner
With this look, dare to be different and bold! Using white eyeliner across the top lid and incorporating in a shade of eyeshadow to match your dress could be just what you need to dress things up. Or, opt for an eye popping eyeliner hue such as bright orange or blue for the under eye area. Get creative with the application process – because with this look, there’s nothing too wild or bold. This look can be found being sported on the runways from Peter Som and Honor.

No matter what look you choose to go for, bringing the runway to your prom look is a fun, creative way to be fashion forward in terms of your beauty. Count on Lionesse to bring you more on hot 2015 prom looks in the coming week.
