Homecoming is right around the corner. With this fun filled night approaching, many questions may be running through your head. What do I wear? How do I do my hair? What type of makeup do I use? Don’t worry, Buzz has got you covered.
For hair, anything goes. Simple, loose curls are always a go-to. To achieve this look, use a curling wand of your choice. Curling wands are inexpensive, such as Remington’s Ceramic Pearl Professional Curling Wand, which is under $20. Start by taking 1.5 to 2 inches of your hair and wrapping it around the wand. Hold the curl for about 15-30 seconds, depending on how tight you want the resulting curl to be. Repeat throughout your whole head. When finished, spray it with some hairspray and add any cute braid. Waterfall, fishtail, or even a normal one and you're set to go! A cute, relaxed hairstyle that will go perfect with that dress of yours.
Now onto what makeup to do for this special night. Shown in the pictures is a simple, brown based makeup look that will go with any color dress. To create this look, I used the Too Faced Stardust palette on the eyes, but you can use any eyeshadows that are similar to the ones I used. To highlight the eyes, put Chandelier or any cream color on the brow bone and inner eyelid. Then, taking a fluffy brush apply Millennial or a medium matte brown into the crease to add definition. Next, take the shade Girls Night or a dark maroon in a V formation into the outer corner. Be sure to blend it all together with Millennial again, using a fluffy brush to make sure no harsh lines occur. To deepen the look, take a teeny bit of Sin City or a matte black and blend it into the outer corner and lower lash line. To make your eyes look awake and to draw attention to your makeup look, take #Selfie or any shimmery baby pink color and press it into the inner corner and drag it along the front half of your waterline. With this beautiful makeup look, only a thin eyeliner is needed. Using a liquid or pencil liner, create a short thin wing to add definition and make the eyes appear larger. I recommend Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. One swipe of this and your makeup will not smudge while you're partying out on the dancefloor! To finish off the eye look, apply a few coats of your favorite mascara and you have the perfect bronzed eye makeup. Using a light foundation will help make your skin look flawless. Highlighter and bronzer will define your features and make you look picture perfect. Benefit’s It Cosmetics has the perfect palette, highlighter, bronzer, and blush all together for enhancing your natural features. Finish the look off with a makeup setting spray to hold the makeup in place for your big night out. The look is now complete. You have a go-to makeup and hair look to go with that stunning dress! No more fears about how to get ready for the dance, you will have an amazing night with this amazing look. Have fun at homecoming!
