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!

We get it: preparing for prom is a BIG DEAL. Between choosing the dress, finding your beauty look, picking the perfect night-of playlist— even downloading a rad picture app!—prepping for high school's biggest night is sort of like a full-time job. Luckily, making sure your prom goes off without a hitch IS our job (well, kind of), which is why we have one more awesome resource to throw into our mix of prom essentials. We're talking about YouTube, otherwise known as the ultimate internet treasure trove of beauty inspiration from real girls everywhere. We've already loaded you up on hair and makeup how-tos from our favorite Hollywood pros, but in case you haven't found your night-of look quite yet, not to worry...from beachy mermaid waves to the perfect elegant bun, these YouTube vloggers have you covered. Check out our top tutorials for prom hair below, and stay tuned for the best makeup vids tomorrow!
