It’s prom season! Whether you’ve got a date or you’re going stag, you want to look your best for the night you’ll never forget. You’ve got the perfect dress, cruelty-free shoes, and a hair appointment, but no look is complete without makeup. Of course, we all possess a natural beauty, but a little foundation and blush help to accentuate our features for those pictures we’ll treasure forever.

We’ve compiled a roundup of glam makeup looks that will make you feel stunning, all using products that are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

Wow your date with a pop of glittery eyeshadow as you subtly cast a downward gaze, then look into his or her eyes and see that face light up. When rocking this bold look, keep other areas of your face neutral to really highlight those shimmering lids. Try CoverFx PowerPlay Foundation for a natural, dewy glow, and Urban Decay’s Beached Eye Shadow Palette for that pop of color.

2. Golden Glow

Urband Decay Natural

Rock a sultry golden glow under the stars with warm, natural hues. This look is created with Urban Decay’s Lightbeam Eyeshadow Palette for subtle yet fiery eyes. Complete the look with a swipe of jet-black mascara, a clean line of eyeliner, warm, slightly shimmering blush, and berry-stained lips.

3. Sophisticated Hollywood Glam

Stila makeup

Complement Hollywood-style curls and a statement-making gown with a subdued, classic look. Brush on some foundation and concealer to create a flawless canvas, then use a highlighter to create definition and brighten your skin. Try Au Naturale’s The All Glowing Creme Highlighter Stick and swipe it under your brow bone, in the inner corner of your eyes, along the bridge of your nose, and on the apple of your cheeks. Then, apply a bold line of black liquid eyeliner, a few layers of mascara, and a natural, slightly shimmery lipstick. You’re red carpet ready!

4. Bright Coral Lips

Pucker up with bright coral lips that will last all night! Try Tarte Cosmetic’s Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick in Cha-Cha for playfully bold lips that won’t crack or crease, no matter how many beaming pictures you take. Complete the look with a fresh face, defined eyes, and a generous application of lash-lengthening mascara.

5. Bold Brows

Nyx Brows

Embrace your full eyebrows and sculpt them into gorgeous works of art. Use a brow pencil to fill in and define your eyebrows to really make them pop. Then, powder on some dramatic yet complementary eyeshadow, swipe on the mascara, and contour your best features with a highlighter stick. Finish with a neutral lip color to make those brows shine.

6. Colorful Lips

Lip Bar

Who said lips have to be red or pink? Make a statement with an unexpected lip color, such as this purple shade of Crown Me Liquid Matte Lipstick from The Lip Bar. Skip the blush, then define your eyes with a similar colored-eye shadow, and of course the obligatory eyeliner and mascara. Polish off the look by using a brow pencil to reign in any strays.
