Homcoming Makeup Tips
Homecoming is here. It is the traditional way of welcoming students back to school. Homing usually starts of with a school pep rally. Students come together to to show their school spirit and route on their high school football team. The spirit and excitement brings old and young alike to rise to the occasion to jump and shout! Show your school spirit and wear school colors, crazy makeup and make noise. Above all be safe and support your community by inspiring students to give back to their communities and school by performing acts of service.
Homecoming is not just about the football, there is the Homecoming Dance which is a great event to attend. Everyone in school is wondering who will be chosen to be the Homecoming King and Queen. Be ready for your Homecoming Dance with the perfect dress whether it is casual or formal choose the color and style just right for you. Let’s not forget about the shoes. I have made some sad mistakes in this area before and walked around barefoot all night. Not a good look. Find a shoe that is stylish but wearable. Doesn’t sound possible does it? If you chose a shoe with a high heel try to find a pair with some elevation in the front so that you don’t feel like you are walking down hill the entire night. A slight platform in the front even things out and make it so much more comfortable.
Now that the dress and shoes are covered, buying new makeup for homecoming is almost as exciting as the dress, the shoes and the hair. If you are on a budget, now is the time to go over to ELF Cosmetics! If you order 25$ in makeup you get the Studio Brush Collection for only $5! Use CODE 11FOR5 by 9/26. ELF offers some great deals on cosmetics if you are in a pinch for cash.
How to get the look:
First, start with clean dry face. If you have oily skin, apply your toner prior to moisturizing your skin. Next apply your moisturizer; even if you have oily skin type everyone should hydrate their skin. Moisturizer can be purchased for your skin tone type so do your research on the one that is right for you. You can then apply foundation or concealer to match your skin tone. In my opinion only apply as much as you need, not your entire face; it looks more natural. Use ELF Tinted Moisturizer if you want the best of both worlds.
For the cheeks apply a pretty pink Natural Radiance Blush like Flushed or Blushing. This exquisite, delicate, pigment payoff makes cheeks radiant combined with a healthy-looking glow. Infused with texturizing agents, skin feels smooth and pores are minimized.
If you are making your eyes the focal point, make them incredible. You can coordinate your eye makeup with your dress using deeper tones or go for a more natural look. Choose Studio Endless Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Palette – Limited Edition. It has 100 colors and is one of Oprah’s favorites. Now on sale for $10!
Apply two coats of mascara to both your upper and lower lashes. urling is optional but it adds length to your lashes. I would suggest staying away from false eyelashes, this is homecoming not a stage performance. e.l.f. Studio Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara will achieve thicker, fuller, and longer lashes that are beautiful and natural. The enlarged brush coats your lashes evenly for an enhanced appeal. The unique formula is clump free and quick drying so you can have color that stays on all day with no smudging and no flaking.
Add some glitter to your smile with e.l.f Studio Glitter Gloss. Dazzle and shine with this intese, show stopping glitter filled gloss. Inufsed with light-rflecting micropearls. This non-sticky gloss illuminates lips with sheer brilliance and lots of color. Vitamin E hydrates lips for additional lip-quenching moisture while the precision brush applicator provides the perfect amount of gloss for effortless coverage, every time. Try some Twinkle Pink or Fushia Fireworks.
