Prom is just around the corner for many of you pretty ladies, and it is key that you put your best foot forward and prepare for the amazing day! The dress is obviously your duty, but I am here to give you tips and tricks for beauty and hair for the big day! Whether you are doing it yourself or getting it done, these will come in handy for prom or any other formal occasion!
Makeup is key for prom! If you want to self tan, please be my guest and do so, but just know that that is not a replacement for your makeup. Tip number one if you self tan: do not self tan your face! The skin on your face tends to be very sensitive, and this could cause breakouts and just look too unnatural. That is where foundation comes in! Everyone should consider wearing some sort of coverage for prom! Whether it’s a foundation or CC/BB cream, the coverage will give you a flawless appearance and help against any oil or shine! (And if you are really bold, try contouring; it will look amazing in photos!)
Eye makeup is a no brainer, but many don’t even bother thinking about doing lashes! False lashes can look very beautiful and add a nice touch to a gorgeous look! I recommend cutting the falsies to the natural shape of your eye or just placing them at the outer corners! This creates a more natural and long lash look, without being overwhelming or heavy on the eye!
Don’t forget to also choose a beautiful lip color! Whether it’s sheer or bold, try to invest in something that will really make your look pop, and that you could wear again!
**For short dress gals: Sally Hanson has a spray on leg makeup made to help cover up any bruising or scars on your legs! Just make sure you rub it in very well and take time to let it dry! DON’T GET IT ON YOUR DRESS!
Hair is also a very crucial part to any prom look! To make it last all day, make sure to use a great hairspray! My go to is the Loreal Elnett! This helps keep my curls in all day, leaving them soft and touchable! Also don’t be afraid to accessorize with your hair! Hair clips and pins are a perfect way to add a little sparkle without going over board!
I hope this helped all of you prom goers this season! My previous beauty and favorites post listed a number of products I use and love, if you’d like to try them! Have an amazing 2014 prom! I know you all will look beautiful.
