I’m Megan, and I’m your go to girl to save the day. My life would have been so much easier if I had my personal guardian angel to help me when it came to the big four letter word P-R-O-M.
Every Junior & Seniors favorite time of their high school lives. Let’s be honest, 80% of the time we’re either thinking or talking to our besties about what the perfect night is going to be like. Let’s get down to it ladies, grab your note pad, something to drink and gather your closest girls. We’re about to start!
Find your own style: I encourage you to be yourself at ALL TIMES!
I know you’re in high school and you’re still probably asking yourself, WHO AM I? Don’t over stress, remember we’re having fun. Are you the cheerleader who’s going up for Prom Queen, or the nerd who wants to show people that she’s not all the books and has a fun side to her. Okay, so you’ve got your note pad and pen right? Write down what the “PERECT” prom dress is for YOU. Is it all about the bling? Do you want a princess style dress with a tiara on top? How about rocker girl meets Hollywood glam? Or do you want to go simple but still effortless and beautiful? See we’re going with this? In 5 minutes you would have figured out YOUR STYLE 🙂
Now that you’ve somewhat found your style, let’s talk about budget. Yes, the “B” word. A lot of us are on budgets and that’s okay. In fact, we tend to find the best stuff at a cheaper cost. Please don’t get discourage if you like something and it’s not in your price range. Your trusty guardian angel is here. We all have different body types, I recommend you hit the streets and try on multiple styles of dresses. When trying on dresses I encourage you to try on without a bra. Reason being is that you’ll see that actual fit of the dress better. Ladies with larger breasts always worry about coverage and support. I assure you, the dress that you choose will offer you both. If you come to a decision that you will prefer to have something similar to a bra but do not want the bra wire or the straps in the back, silicone bras will be your best friend.
Choosing the right shade of color goes a long way. For my prom, my dress was rain-bowed out with purple and blue crystals. I know what you’re thinking, but no! I didn’t look crazy, lol. There are so many choices you have but whatever you decide, make sure you LOVE IT!
Whew! So you’ve got your perfect dress and we’ve covered the support of your girls if needed. On to my personal favorite ….
Makeup + Hair + Nails 🙂
Make up: LASHES! LASHES! LASHES! I cannot express how much lashes can change your face and makeup. It gives definition to the eyes for that bold statement. Also, matching your concealer and foundation is key ladies. Of course we know your pictures have to be flawless.
Beauty Tip: Smokey eyes = Nude lips | Simple eyes = Bold lips
Beauty Tip 2.0: Don’t let your makeup wear you, you wear the makeup J
Hair: Up-do’s, Flowy long hair and side Do’s all depend on the look of your dress. Open back dresses, definitely you can swing either way. To execute a beautiful strapless, Up-do’s & Side-Do’s are my favorite.
Nails: My new favorite go to for my nails is CND Shellac. Who doesn’t love a 14 day polish that doesn’t chip or come off when you’re in water. So whether you’re at the beach or getting ready for prom night, I highly recommend a CND Shellac Manicure.
My all times favs: Pink: ButterFly Queen [Hey Prom Queens / Princess]
Blue: Azure Wish [Hoping Mr. Dreamy asks you to be his date]
Coral: Sparks Fly [A little romance]
Prom is the time to try something new, so go for it!
So, we’ve covered all bases. Don’t forget to add funky or elegant shoes and simple accessories to tie your prom 2016 look together.
As an esthetician I always recommend that you pamper yourself with a facial. I know we spoke about a budget earlier so if you can’t make it to your favorite esthetician, here are somethings you can do to prep your skin for that special day: Cleanse twice starting with PreCleanse and Special Cleansing Gel, Tone : Multiactive Toner and top it off with a Skin Smoothing Crème (a lightweight moisturizer)
We’re just about done. Just a few prom essentials and you’re ready to have your magical night with of course Mr. Dreamy.
1) Lip Gloss
2) Gum or Mints
3) Safety Pins or Double Sided Tape
4) Hair Brush / Bobby Pins
5) Compact Mirror
6) Phone (PICTURES! PICTURES! PICTURES!)
