Prom 2008: Vibrant Teal & Purple Dresses & Makeup

It’s prom season, and I’ve been getting more and more requests on what to do makeup-wise! If you know me, you know I’m an advocate of coordinating your eye makeup with your clothes, and the dress is no exception.

This vibrant multi-colored dress should help inspire you when thinking of appropriate makeup to pair it with. I love the idea of doing a mermaid inspired eye (#2 shown) with a purple twist (perhaps having some Parfait Amour or Contrast eyeshadow in the outer crease/lid). But because the gown has so much blue and purple, you can easily opt for an all-purple eye or even all-teal eye. To downplay the colors, you can go for a subtle smoky eye that has a little bit of blue or purple accents to help tie everything together.

Check out details for the looks suggested: one, two, three. Dress is available at for $286.00.
