The prom is very close, and you want to get the very best out of it? Well, you should know that you’ll have the time of your life attending this big event and you surely want everything to be absolutely perfect. No matter you are thinking about makeup, your outfit, your date – you need to handle each and every tiny detail in order to make this night ideal. In case you are not very good at making yourself look good, then try selecting a beauty school and attend a program.  You’d be amazed how many things you are going to learn and how beneficial the techniques you are going to start using are for your aspect in general. Investing in a beauty school can also transform the art of makeup or hairstyling into something profitable. The same goes for the entire cosmetology area, including nail design. If you have a passion that’s related to beauty, this is the best decision you can make.

One week beforehand

There are several things you have to consider one week before your prom. Start by visiting your hairdresser for re-coloring your hair and have a cut. Do not opt for dramatic changes before such an important event because you might end up regretting it and you’ll have no time to grow your hair back so rapidly. You should try facial scrubs and deep cleansing facemasks one week before the event, so you won’t get any irritations, redness or rashes one night before the prom. Now it’s the moment when you have to try on many dresses until you find one that really suits you. The same goes for shoes and accessories. One day before the prom, make appointments for your doing your nails, in case you did not learn how to master them by yourself. In the big event day, you will have to deal with makeup and hair.

How to do your makeup

On the day of the prom, you have to learn how to do your makeup to avoid spending a fortune on a personal makeup artist. You can do that by attending a beauty school or by watching tutorials online. Following these tips might help too:

  • Washing face and completing your skincare routine, applying moisturizer, sunscreen, and a primer
  • Applying foundation, concealer and setting powder
  • For the eyes: primer, base eyeshadow, inner corner eyeshadow, lid eyeshadow, crease eyeshadow, outer corner and undereye eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara
  • For the eyebrows: eyebrow wax, pencil, powder, concealer
  • For the lips: primer, pencil, lipstick, concealer and setting powder
  • For contouring: bronzer, blush, and highlighter
  • Finish with setting spray

Follow these tips for a natural, elegant makeup or go bold and choose something that will attract everyone’s attention. Make sure that the makeup and hairstyle you are choosing match together and go well with the outfit you chose. You should remember one thing: a prom is an event where you must be feeling comfortable, beautiful and have the time of your life. Don’t let such event go to waste by not enjoying it or focusing your attention on less important things.
