Ball Makeup Ideas from Auckland Makeup Artist Lauren Barry

Auckland has some fabulous venues for school balls and if you are lucky enough to have your ball at one of them, your ball makeup will also need to look just as fabulous. On the day of your prom, I’ll come to you and your girlfriends with my makeup and tools, or you are welcome to visit me at my studio in Taupaki, West Auckland.

Popular Ball Makeup Styles

Makeup for a ball needs to be special. Glamourous, sophisticated and even sexy are words that spring to mind when describing the makeup looks seen at school balls all over Auckland. It’s your time to shine and nothing can help you do that better than professionally applied makeup!

  • Sultry Smokey Eye with a Nude or Bold Lip – nothing says sexy and steaminess more than a smokey eye. I’ve found many girls want something dramatic yet classy and this makeup style is perfect. If you want to share the attention your eyes receive, then a bold coloured lipstick would be great, but to keep everyone staring at your eyes, a nude lippy is best.
  • Contoured and Glowy Cheekbones, highlighted with a Soft Eye and Lip – Look fresh and flawless with this beautiful prom makeup idea. Natural looking and very elegant, this makeup style is especially suited if you do not normally wear a lot of makeup.
  • Sun Kissed Bronze – think Hollywood celebs Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. Totally rocking it with soft, glowy and natural looking skin, with bronze hints on lips and lips for a really glamourous look.
  • Vintage Hollywood – a simply darling ball makeup look is the vintage Hollywood style, showing a dramatic red pout with a lot of mascara and feline flicked eyes.
  • Pure Romance – wanting to impress your Prince Charming? Aim for a soft romantic look with glossy lips, rosy cheeks and glowy skin.
  • Kim Kardashian look – work towards having heavily defined eye makeup, with the rest looking natural and contoured over your cheekbones.

Most importantly of all, it’s your special evening and how you choose to have your makeup applied it totally up to you!
