    Prom is a once-in-a-lifetime event with your friends, so of course you want the perfect makeup look! Whether you're a beginner or a full-on prom hack expert, here are a few ~lewks~ you can recreate on any budget:

    1. You can go for an arched brow with a golden cut-crease and wispy lashes for a classy look.

    2. Or a natural beat with a highlight glow and some nude, glossy lips.

    3. This beauty gave us a full pout with some defined brows and full lashes.

    4. And if you want to slay in color, why not rock a cobalt blue with glitter?

    5. You can cover up hyper pigmentation and acne marks with a good primer and concealer — then you can give your canvas a beautiful cranberry smokey eye like this beauty did.

    6. If the "less is more" approach works for you, go in with a matte concealer and lightly carve out your brows.

    7. And sometimes, it's all about smoothing out your canvas, then playing up the eyes with some signature shades and finishing it off with a glossy lip.

    8. Bronzed skin is always a great option — if you're down, give your skin a sunkissed-finish with a gold palette and finish it with long lashes.

    9. A timeless look is a smokey eye paired with a red lip. If you've got those two, you've already tackled the beauty recipe for success!

    10. And if you're more into deep berry tones and want your lips to be the focal point, go for a vampy lip shade paired with an equally dark eye.

    11. Give your skin a bit of glow with a hydrating foundation and just a touch of color. That inner corner rose gold highlight? Yes.

    12. And lastly, if you're in the midst of a breakout, use a bit of aloe vera gel to soothe the skin before putting on makeup. Be sure to use gentle ingredients, but you can definitely do a full brow and a red lip combo!
