Prom is a special event that every girl would want to look absolutely stunning for. Here are a few tips on how to get that look.Does this Spark an idea?
Make a check list of everything that you need or want to get done for the prom. This way as you move along you can keep track of things that you’ve already taken care of and things that you still need to. You could title it: Things to do Before & After Prom Day.
GET THE PERFECT DRESS FOR YOU. The key to buying a Christmas prom dress is to find one that fits your body and your budget well. There are amazing dresses out there that don’t cost an arm and leg. Take some time to shop around and get some price estimates on what you like.
With picking your Christmas cocktail dresses try going for ORIGINALITY, the last thing you’d want is for someone else to show up wearing the same dress you are. Start with some basics: what is a color you look really good in? Would the dress be beautiful but comfortable at the same time? etc.
Think of your dress as the sun and everything else should revolve around it. What does that mean? That all your accessories like shoes, purse, jewelry, etc. should go with the dress instead of the dress going with them. This doesn’t mean that everything has to match either (you may actually want to stay away from matching everything head to toe).
SHOES: When picking your prom shoes something to consider are if you will be able to walk in the shoes that you pick. Shoes come in so many varieties, you can either chose to wear flats for stability, wedges which have stability but also give you that high heel effect, or high heels which can be difficult to walk in but are a sexy way to top off your dress. The good thing about shoes is that they are versatile, however, the thing to look out for is to make sure that they match your purse (balances out).
HAIR: Hair is important when it comes to looking beautiful. Some girls prefer to wear their hair short at prom while others would rather wear it long or pined up. The thing you want to do is get people’s heads to turn. Consult your stylist on a style that you may want and that you think would look good with your dress. For example, an evening gown just wouldn’t go right with a mowhawk would it?…well, you may disagree with me, nevertheless it’s your choice!
While at the beautician don’t forget to get your eyebrows arched. Either you can do it yourself or have them done by the professionals either way they are important for shaping your face.
Pay attention to your body. You wouldn’t want to wear a fabulous gown only to realize that your nails look horrible or that your skin is dry. If you can’t go out to the spa give yourself an at home spa treatment. Take a relaxing bath, shave, moisturize, exfoliate, file and paint your nails (or you can choose to get fake nails professionally put on if you have short nails or you can buy a “do it yourself” nail kit from you local drug store). Don’t forget to give yourself a pedicure too especially if you’re going to wear open toe sandals/shoes.
MAKEUP: The key to wearing makeup is to never over do it. A little can actually go a long way. Start with some basics such as eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, lip stick and lip gloss (lip gloss applied over a little slip stick, try it!). If you’re not good at putting on your own make up try to find someone who is.
Last but not least, if you have a prom date, make sure they match your colors. It can be as simple as the same color tie or vest as your dress.
