Prom Makeup Trends for 2022

Prom Makeup Trends for 2022

As the end of the school, semester gets closer and closer, you’re probably daydreaming about what you’ll wear to prom, and we completely get it! At Savvi Prom, we believe that finding a gorgeous gown and accessories to match is only half the fun: your makeup is the final finishing touch to building the perfect prom look. Here are our favorite trending prom makeup styles in 2022:


“No-Makeup” Makeup


This year, “no-makeup” makeup has been one of the most popular trends on social media and perfecting it has been a challenge that many members of the beauty community are excited to take on. It has proven difficult to create a “no-makeup” look without actually having your face go bare, but don’t worry: all you’ll need to achieve this glowing, fresh-faced trend is a light hand in an application, plenty of highlighter, and products with minimal coverage. We recommend opting for earthy-toned shades and products with dewy formulas over matte.


Color Pops


Statement-making pops of color are a fun, exciting way to showcase your creativity and rock an entire one-of-a-kind look at prom. Move your neutral and earthy-toned eyeshadow palettes over, and welcome in lively shades of pinks, purples, blues, and more! If this look sounds like something you’re after, lean towards bright shadows, colorful eyeliner rather than typical black, or shimmering, jewel-toned facial gems. Pro tip: match the tones in your makeup glam to the color of your dress for a mesmerizing, coordinated look.


Smudged, Smoked Eyes


As an ode to the grungy style of the ‘90s and early 2000s, heavy eyeliner is making its comeback in modern makeup trends! This look shines a spotlight on your gorgeous eyes and you can easily make it yours: using a dark eye pencil, generously apply product around your eyes and inside your bottom waterline, then smudge it outwards as much as you prefer. Pair this style with sharp, defined contouring and a moody lipstick shade for the ultimate edgy appeal.
