    hmm, lets see, tanned skin looks great with bright colors

    absolutly No pastels

    stick with deep reds and magentas

    dark greens

    pale yellow and pink

    Depending on the shape and cut of the dress is how your going to do your hair

    and the color of your dress will effect your makeup

    for tips buy a prom magazine and show your hairdresser how you want your hair done, or try to do it your self

    same with the makeup

    try to find a girl with the same facial sturcture and skin color as yours so you will know what looks good

    Source(s): here are some REALLY cute dresses, maybe you could look for ones that are the same but cheaper! p.s nordstroms dresses are really CHEAP!!!! p.p.s and if thouse are to expensive for you, try to go vintage!!! used clothing stores and great ways to find bargains

    If you have olive skin tone you can wear SO many colours and look incredible.

    Check out this red dress which would look super with your dark hair.

    Or this one is lovely with a sort of cut-out under the bust which is pretty hot if your mother will let you out of the house in it!

    Sweep your hair back away from your face leaving some soft wispy bits and wear some dangly earrings. TJFormal is a great site for all the dress stuff but you really have to pick a gown first and the work from that. At least on that site you can find lots of gowns for a lot less so you can spend money on the more important things!

    Have a BLAST!!!

    LBD=Little Black Dress! Black goes w/everything and you have more options in shoe colors. red lips would be good, but make sure it has a blue base not orange or it might look funny (i have the same skin tone and it looks too much on me). Is your hair long? put it up in a very high ponytail and had some curls to it. get a cute headband resembling a tiara. don't get black shoes maybe something in a metallic like a strappey sandal. wear a shorter length dress since you are tall you've got the legs to show off. have fun!

    I have same skin tone as you with dark hair and i use golds for my eyes and they look fabulous! or i cover whole lid with a light bronze, use a white eyeliner and go from end tip of eye to the start of the bone of the lid and move in a tad with a dark brown shadow to give it depth. The white will bring out the color of your pupil and widen the eye, black eyeliner on the very base. Use bare minerals for blush on cheekbones and a bronzer and for the lips i use a nice bright matte pink, it makes the lips very sensual, i get lots of compliments, i get it at Sephora.

    For dress i would wear a tourquoise, cherry red, lavender, mint green, these are colors that complement olive skin like ours. Don't forget fingernails, do french manicure it's very elegant. wear the hair strait, it's the style.

    have fun.

    Dress: something like this in an emerald color would be nice with your skin and eye color. If you do something that would enhance your eyes, make sure that your eyes are the focus of the makeup, maybe smoky eyes with browns, blacks, and purples, and light colored lips.

    Put the hair up in a classic french twist. Looks good on anyone.

    I think you should stick with an olive green, gold or copper...those would be beautiful with your eyes and skintone. I agree with the makeup scheme, but take the lips to a more wine color and wear fake lashes!!!

    Check out for some makeup ideas, they have great stuff!!

    Go to for everything that you need!

    gray is sweet notwithstanding it relies upon on his complexion. On some people, gray makes them looks washed out. i could bypass with black Tuxedo, white blouse and a tie that comes close to on your costume. you opt for the guy to maintain it straightforward so the attention is all on YOU!

    Try to keep nature, do not add lot of artificial items,

    avoid it, then only you will get your original attractive! unless other accessories will occupy your beauty!
