Following the trends as of late, here’s a list of homecoming dance makeup ideas that show off beautiful skin, exquisite makeup, and all sorts of beauty revivals.

3. Classy and Clean Neutral Glam
You can never go wrong with a classic neutral look, even for the glam season. Keeping your palette muted and eye details toned down always works.

Creating a glam look with glitter does not need to look tacky, keeping it minimal and nude everywhere else, gives the look a more youthful energy.
