Glow On
To know "where to glow," bend over for 30 seconds then slowly stand up. The point where your cheeks are flushed is where you are meant to blush. Apply blush there to look naturally rosy." —Ana de Castro, HBC

Sound Sleep
"Be your prettiest by making sure you sleep, sleep, and sleep! Also, avoid late nights out to have perfect glowing skin. Good skin will need less makeup." –Barbi Chan, Maybelline New York

Clean and Classic
"Choose makeup look that compliments both your personality and your dress. If you've got a bold-colored dress, keep your face neat by accentuating just one feature. A classic hairstyle will make you smile instead of cringe when you look at your prom photos 20 years from now. " —Gela Laurel-Stehmeier, Lancome

Color Coded
"Don't be afraid to use color, but make sure it blends well with your entire look. Bring eyeshadow colors in green or purple can look gorgeous paired with toned-down lips in pale pink or nude. Keep cheeks from taking center stage by using a rosy satin blush." —Cathy Cantada-Dizon, Shu Uemura

Face Forward
"To get the most out of your precious prom photos, make sure you choose a foundation that matches the tone and texture of your skin perfectly. Trust me when I say that if you don't, you'll end up with a face that appears while with flash photography. Who wants that, right?" —Jigs Mayuga

Pat-A-Cake
"Help your makeup stay flawless throughout the night by gently patting off (never rub!) excess oil and sweat on your face. This will keep you shine-free and non-streaky so you can simply have fun." —Angie Cruz, Shu Uemura

All Eyes On You
"Neat, well-groomed brows are important in making your makeup look polished. For eyes that look wide awake and fresh, make sure to curl your lashes and brush on at least two coats of mascara for length and fullness." —Tatin Yang, Lancome

Lip Service
"Keep your lippie fresh by lightly wiping your lips after your meail and reapplying floss in the same shade. Don't forget to pop in a breath mint as well." —Ces Guerrero

Shine On
"After you've finished putting on your makeup, try this extra step. Dab facial glitter gel on your cheekbones and your temples. This will give your whole look so much more character. " —Sabs Hernandez, Lancome

Sheer Beauty
"Guys love girls with clear skin and soft pink lips. Opt for luminous foundation and sheer lippies to showcase these assets." —Lorie May Abraham

Rosy Posey
"Sweep blush on the apples of your cheeks, extending slightly towards the ears and temples for a flushed, English rose look. Vermillion and peach flatter all skin tones." —Angie Cruz, Shu Uemura
