Spring is blossoming into full bloom which means two things. For starters, we can finally shift our winter clothes to the back of our closet—and secondly, prom is just around the corner! With dress shopping swinging into full gear, there’s a good chance that you’ve selected your shoes and clutch to match—and maybe you’ve even decided on your hairstyle. But what about your makeup? It’s 2017, and there’s never been more gorgeous makeup trends to try for a special event. Seriously, what better time to do it than prom? From rainbow eyeliner and brightly pigmented warm eye shadows, to metallic lips and cut creases, you have plenty of options. Below, we share a handful of looks to consider. Follow along!

Prom Makeup Look #1: Rainbow Eyeliner

With so many technicolor eyeliners out there, it’d be a shame not to incorporate them into your biggest night out. All you have to do is use a few different shades of liquid eyeliner to line your lash line evenly. You can choose to actually emulate the rainbow or pick a handful of similarly hued liners to create an ombré effect. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Intrepid Teal, Vivid Aqua and Wild Green.

Prom Makeup Look #2: Peach Eyes

Along with warm temperatures comes the influx of warm shades to layer our faces with! There’s nothing like a bright-eyed appeal to add a little extra style to your prom look. And with 2017’s peach trend, you’ll be able to achieve just that! All you need is the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Shopping Spree to add a peach accent to your smoky eye or the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Sunset Fire for an allover wash of vibrant color. Pair either with a peachy blush from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Blush palette to complete the colorful look.

Prom Makeup Look #3: White Wings

Add an ethereal feel with a gentle flick of white liquid eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in White Party, along your upper lash line. For a more mod feel, thicken up your wing for a bolder, geometric statement eye.

Prom Makeup Look #4: Cut Crease

Want to add a professional makeup artist touch to your prom makeup? Look no further than the cut crease. Using the colors of your choice, you’ll want to use a dark creamy eyeliner, a couple eye shadows that slightly vary from that same color, a light shadow in the same color scheme, and an almost-white shadow to use as a highlight. Try the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Stacked Heels.

All you have to do is start with the lightest colorful shadow to create your base using a fluffy eye shadow brush. Next, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Silkissime Eyeliner in Pure Purple to sketch a sideways V shape from the outer corner of your eye towards the middle of your crease. Make sure that the line is thicker towards the outer corner and thinner on your crease. Next, use a blending eye shadow brush to blend the eyeliner out toward the outer corner of your eye without disrupting the sharp bottom edge of your cut crease. To give your crease more definition, use the darker colors of your quad to blend above the line without getting any shadow on the underside of the crisp cut. To finish your look, use the almost-white color to highlight just under your brow bone. Top it off with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara and you’re ready to slay!

Now remember, if you choose to go with this method, you’ll want to practice it a few times leading up to the big dance, as this particular statement eye requires precision blending to look just right.

Prom Makeup Look #5: Metallic Lips

Here in 2017, we’re mad about metallic. From metallic eyes to metallic highlighters, we’ve tried just about every look in the book. But then metallic lips hit the scene and to say we’re obsessed is an understatement. With a simple swipe of clear gloss and your favorite metallic eye shadow over top of your matte lippy of choice, you can rock your prettiest pucker yet. For a mermaid/unicorn effect, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Lilac Lust topped off with the highlighting shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Plum for serious shimmer.

And just like that you’ll be able to dance the night away and look fabulous doing it!
