Forget exams and Friday maths class, as we reach the end of summer, there’s a more important date that’s fast approaching in the school calendar - no it’s not Easter, it’s the Year 12 ball! If you haven’t already celebrated entering your final year of formal education, what better way to mark this milestone than by getting a little glam! Here is a little school ball makeup inspiration from the Perth makeup artists at Kinks Fremantle.
If you’re going all out for this year’s ball (the heels, the dress, the nails and the spray tan), you’re going to need a glamorous makeup look to match the outfit. Deep red lips, long lashes and bold, winged eyeliner are a great combination for those looking to channel their inner Hollywood starlette. Pair with beautiful blow waves or a super sleek high ponytail for a look that’s truly red-carpet worthy.
No doubt you’re already familiar with this classic makeup technique, but you can always rely on the smouldering smokey eye to add a little mystique to your overall look. This traditional smokey eye uses a black and silver colour palette to draw attention to the eyes and create a sultry smokey effect. For a modern, shimmery take on this classic makeup look, try adding a little glitter to make your eyes really pop (you know you want to!).
Bold and beautiful
If there’s one thing we’ve learnt in recent years, it’s that bold is beautiful when it comes to makeup. Bolder eyeshadow colours such as orange and reds work really well against darker complexions, whilst brighter pinks and peach tones create an all-round stunning look. If you’re looking to brighten up your outfit with some even brighter makeup, this is the look for you.
Natural makeup look
If you’re after ball makeup that’s a little more subtle, this ‘less-is-more’ look is the perfect option for you. This simple yet gorgeous look from our Fremantle makeup artists combines a nude eyeshadow palette, subtle highlighter and pale lips for a natural effect that will keep you looking fresh-faced throughout the night.
Perth’s summer may be nearly over, but this doesn’t mean you can’t go all-out bronze with your school ball makeup. Bronze is a really versatile colour that pairs well with most outfits and helps to illuminate facial features in all the right places. Combine bronze or gold smokey eye, highlighter and our Naked Tan spray tans to achieve bronze perfection!
