Prom and Date Night Makeup Advice

Here’s the scenario: you just got asked out on a date by the guy you’ve had your eye on for a while now. You’ve talked to your friends about the perfect outfit and hairstyle, now all that’s left is the perfect makeup. That’s where Jaclyn Hill comes in. If you haven’t heard of her, she is a famous YouTube makeup artist who has almost 200 videos of different makeup looks and tutorials. We rounded up some of our favorites for you to check out below:

Movie Date: Bright Eyes + Bold Lips


Had a late night? Don’t plan your next Sephora haul just to splurge on new under eye creams and concealers. Sometimes the most effective solution for dark under eye circles is to rock bold and bright eyeshadow and liner. And don’t be shy—bold eyes and lips are trending this summer, and many bold colors you buy will work well into the fall! For a bright and bold makeup routine, we recommend Jaclyn’s video tutorial for small/tired eyes. This video is sure to give you long-lasting makeup that adds a little pop to your natural eye color.

How to Style Hair: Wear your hair down with big, loose curls or up in a loose messy bun to keep this look a little more laid-back.

What to Wear: To offset the bold lipstick, wear a casual outfit to the movies. Jeans or a maxi dress is the way to go.

Products Used: Primer, foundation, concealer eyeshadow, gel liner, fake eyelashes, eyebrow pencil, bronzer, blush, lip liner, lipstick


Night Out: The Classic Bombshell Smokey Eye

                When has a well done smokey eye ever failed us? This tutorial by Jaclyn Hill is very easy to follow and will give your look a little extra edge for your night out. Pair it with some sort of a loose up-do to keep you from looking too harsh.

How to Style Hair: Wear your hair in a loose ponytail or messy bun and be sure not to pull your hair too tight off of your face.

What to Wear: Wear lighter colors on top to offset the dark eyeshadow and eyeliner.

Products Used: Primer, skin mist, foundation, concealer, powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, bronzer, blush, highlighter, eyelashes and makeup setting spray


Daytime Date: Antique Bronze Smokey Eye


Looking for a great night-out makeup look that doesn’t involve the classic smokey eye? Get ahead of the trend and use bronze or gold metallic eyeshadow to highlight the sun-kissed tan you got this summer. For inspiration, look to this tutorial!


How to Style Hair: Since this look is more subtle than the others, feel free to wear any hairstyle here. We recommend a loose braid or pulling half of your hair up.

What to Wear: We like to pair a white top or dress with this gold eyeshadow. It picks up the metallic features in the eyeshadow while highlighting the summer tan you’ve been working so hard on.

Products Used: Primer, mist, foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, eye pencil, fake eyelashes, mascara, bronzer, blush, highlighter, lipstick


Casual Date: Pinks & Neutrals


If you’re going to lunch, walking around the mall, or hanging out with him and his friends, this makeup trend is the perfect one to try. It’s enough to make you feel put-together, but not enough to look overdone.

How to Style Hair: Since this makeup look is fresh and clean, you have free range to do whatever you want with your hair.

What to Wear: Anything teal or gray-green is a perfect complement to a neutral makeup palette. Be bold, not blah.

Products Used: Primer, water, highlighter, foundation, concealer, bronzer, eyeshadow (we recommend Urban Decay’s Naked Basic Eyeshadow Palette #1 or #2), blush, lipstick, lip gloss
