Prom Makeup: Punky Purple

Foundation and Highlight

I applied my highlighting concealer under my eyes in an upside-down triangle shape to emphasize my cheekbones. You can use whatever kind of foundation you want, but I like to use light to medium coverage for these kinds of looks. Anything too heavy kills that “lived in” feel, and I prefer to balance out these vivid, winged out eyes with a few freckles showing through. At least, I would if I had any freckles. But the world is a sad dark place and I don’t have many freckles. Gonna go write a song about that injustice.
