Prom is one of the most anticipated and exciting days in your high school career and preparing for it can be very stressful and exhausting. You have to think of what to wear, who your date will be, and much more. You should remember that prom is a time when you can shine and be yourself, not just be someone’s partner. Here are a few beauty tips for your big day- be sure to use these beauty tricks at least 2 weeks before prom to see the full effect.
Take care of your skin
It is very important to have a daily skincare regimen so that your skin looks healthy and clear. There are a number of ways to take care of your skin, such as:
First, be sure that you take care of your skin on the inside. That means drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day in order to hydrate your skin. Eat a generous amount of fruits and vegetables as they provide the vitamins and minerals that help skin renewal. Get adequate sleep and rest every night to avoid dark under-eye circles and other skin impurities brought by stress.
Second, be sure that you take care of your skin from the outside. You should cleanse, tone, moisturize, exfoliate, and protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. (Read about organic skincare regimes here).
You might first consider having your makeup down by a professional Makeup artist. Since prom is definitely a big occasion, you have the chance to splurge on it. Nevertheless, doing the makeup yourself is not a bad option. Practice and test different looks a few days before the big event until you finally achieve the look that you would love to wear.
First thing to do is make sure your makeup products are suitable for your skin. Go with hypoallergenic makeup products in order to avoid chances of allergic reaction on your big day. Choose your beauty products, such as your foundation, concealer, blusher, eye shadow, lipstick, and eyeliner that match your skin tone. If you have light-colored skin, you can choose light shades of makeup and if you have dark-colored skin, you can choose darker shades of makeup.
Second is to make sure your face is a “perfect canvas for painting”. Apply your foundation evenly to your face, neck, and revealed parts of your upper torso. Use a concealer to hide those blemishes and impurities on your face.
Third is to choose a part of your face you would like to emphasize. It could be your captivating eyes or your luscious lips. Opt for one facial feature and do your best to pretty it up. If you choose your eyes, utilize your eyeliner, mascara, and false eyelashes. Go with smokey eyes to create drama and accentuate your peepers like Kim Kardashian. If you choose your lips, be like Angelina Jolie and go with a shade of lively red or pink lipstick and stay away from boring shades of brown or nude.
Lastly are the final touches. Keep your cheeks alive by applying the correct blusher. You can also lightly dust some shimmer powder on your neck to add some effect. And most importantly, smile and be confident.
Make sure your crowning glory is as beautiful as your face. Wear a classic prom princess updo adorned with a tiara, or a modern hairdo such as the ponytail hairstyle or the messy hair look. You could go to a hairdresser to have your hair done, or you could simply read hair magazines to get more suggestions for big hit prom hairdos and do them yourself.
