We know it’s not for everyone, but would you consider doing a blue smoky eye for homecoming? It would look beautiful with almost any dress color, but it’s certainly not for the makeup faint of heart!
To replicate this blue smoky eye you’ll want to start out with a base color. In this example they’re using a color slightly darker than the woman’s natural skin tone, and filling it in up to the woman’s brow bone. Then, fill in your eyelid with black eyeliner, and use a brush to smudge and diffuse the color a bit. Go over your eyelid with your favorite blue eyeshadow, making sure to blend. (The eyeliner on your eyelid is going to help make the color pop but is also working as an eyeshadow base!) Finally, line your eyes with the same black liner and apply some mascara.
