Time to get ready for prom?

It's weird to think that nearly over a year ago, this was the point where I was starting to get ready for my prom! Prom is such a good school social event to go too, it's the first big dressy up event that we have in the UK, i think. I know in America, you kind of have homecoming and prom every year (I think, i'm not completely sure about that). However, prom is normally in the middle of the year but this is the time of year where you need to start organising everything really.

The dress

For girls, this is the biggie for the whole event. The dress, the dress that you are going to keep and see in every photo from the night. Therefore, you will need to make sure you pick a dress you definitely like. You can either go short or long, a range of different colours and style. Therefore, it needs to suit you while actually being a dress that you like as well. While there is the choice of a range of different materials to pick from as well.

Your Hair!?
Following up with your dress, your hair is kind of a big deal. You kind of have to decided if you want it up, down or half up/half down. The hairstyle will need to suit your dress, that may sound stupid i know. But what I want mean from this, that you may have long hair and beautiful detailing the back of your dress where if you had your hair down, you won't be able to see it. Therefore you may want to have it all up or even down but pushed to one side therefore still showing of your dress. While, it may be hard to find hair styles for your hair because of the length therefore here is some example of hair styles:  

What to do with your make up? Make-up is another thing to worry about. You can either get someone to do your make-up for you, a professional or a friend who is really good with your make-up or just do it yourself if you like. Other people may be more skilled and knows how to make everything look better but you may not like it. However doing it yourself, you can do everything exactly how you like but you might not have the skills which makes everything 'flawless'. With make-up, you can go in a number of different directions.

The natural look- Sometimes natural and simple is the best step to do. The effortless look can look it's best, the use of make-up to bring out your best features and give you more a flawless look. This can look stunning and effortless, specially at prom. Some people truly do go over board sometimes.

Heavy eyes- This looks consists of more make-up on the eyes. This can be winged eye liner and false eyeslashes or a smoky eye look. Most of the make-up will be in the eye and a simple lip helps to stop the make-up looking too much. A very effective look.

Strong lip- This make-up look is about having a strong lip colour and everything else being quite simple. This is all about having a strong lip colour, a bright red, a strong red, a dark purple/red. Make sure that the colour suits you and the colour of your dress. 

 Smoky eyes and a red lip- This make-up look can be different in a number of ways, a more glam look or more of a rock n roll look. Having a light smoky eye look with red lips can give you more of a glam look, my advice is maybe get a bit of your dress colour in your eye make-up if you can. Or instead, a colour that complients the colours of your eyes. To make your eye colour stand out even more. However on the other side of the look is the more edgey look. A dark smoky eye with a red lip. Gives more off an effortless rock n roll make-up look. For the smoky eye and a red lip look, be careful as it may seem you have gone too much and just looks like you have too much make-up on.

Hope all of this has helped you be prepared for your prom, the three key elements for a girl really. Comment below any other ideas or questions. Have fun planning prom!
