Earlier this week we rounded up THE very best hair tutorials on YouTube to perfect before prom night, from classic cascading waves to an updated take on K.Stew's fishtail braid. Now that you've had a day or so to practice those, it's time for part two of the ultimate YouTube prom prep: yep, we're talking about makeup! The amount of beauty inspiration online right now is seriously overwhelming, so we've done the legwork for you and picked our top 5 how-to clips. And while they might not all be prom-specific, that's OK, because you'll have plenty of opportunities to show off your skills long after the dance (or even high school!) is over. But first, a warning: diving headfirst into a sea of makeup videos is a slippery slope —trust us, we've been there— so don't blame us if you get addicted and finally re-emerge to the real world hours later. So let's do this!
