For young beauty lovers who are heading to prom this spring, the special occasion offers the perfect opportunity to experiment with your everyday makeup look. While school and your part time job may require you to sport understated, soft colours, evening beauty is an entirely different beast. Whether you want to emphasize your eyes or lips for Prom 2017, take your beauty inspiration from these gorgeous and glamorous stars.

The 20-year-old star looks youthful yet perfectly elegant with her cherry red lipstick and glowing bronzed complexion. Staying true to her natural beauty, Zendaya’s natural full eyebrows, rosy cheeks and long lashes emphasize her features. Meanwhile, the subtle dusty pink eyeshadow flatters her skin tone and also allows her fierce pout to truly shine.

If you want to create a smokey eye look, turn to Shay Mitchell for your inspiration. The Pretty Little Liars beauty is the ultimate bombshell with her darkly outlined eyes and lashings of mascara. Meanwhile, the coppery and grey shades of her eyeshadow are paired with shimmery gold, for an eye-catching effect. To keep your smokey eye statement looking classy and chic, stick to simple nude lips and a subtly highlighted visage.
