It’s almost the most magical time for teenagers. Prom nights are just around the corner. Those are definitely one of the biggest even in a life of a teenager. Alongside all the prom costs, from buying tickets, limo, and the dress, you need to think about hair, makeup, and nails. Should this be an extra cost or you can do something by yourself?
We are here to tell you how you can get ready and look perfect in all your photos, regardless of your budget. This is a roundup of advice from hair, makeup, and nails. Create a good schedule and look amazing on your prom night.
Looking for a place to start with your prom GRWM? Nails are the best place to start since you can never be too early. There is nothing worse than looking at your hands and seeing the chunk of color missing, right? To avoid this, you should be careful and follow some of these tips.
It is always a better idea to do your nails before actual prom night. Whether you are doing your nails at home or you need to make an appointment in the salon, do it before prom night. A few days before will be great, and you will ensure you won’t damage the nails. Applying an extra layer of topcoat is necessary. That is how your nails won’t chip or break before the big night.
By doing your nails earlier, you will have just enough time to make corrections, if necessary. Avoid doing household chores, like washing the dishes and getting in contact with chlorine.
Which Style to Pick?
There are many styles to choose from, no matter whether you are doing your nails alone or in a salon. For a prom, we would always suggest a french manicure. It is a neutral, yet timeless style that matches any dress and your personal style.
You can also go for styles that include accent nails. The most popular nails for accent are ring and pinky fingers.
You will be able to choose from many different hairstyles for your prom night. But the questions are popping out: when to do it? You will definitely have to deal with this part of prom preparation on the same day as the prom. Make sure to arrange everything in advance, so you will have time for makeup as well.
If your prom is in the evening, around 6 or 7, then you should get your hair done around 1 or 2. You will be able to make some changes if needed, to go home, get dressed, do your makeup and go to the event without a rush.
It is not recommended to make some drastic hair changes before prom night. What if you don’t like it? There won’t be enough time to change it again, and you will end up disappointed. However, you can do color touch-ups the week before, but ensure it is something you have already tried.
Which Style to Pick?
Voluminous curls can be easily made, yet they will turn any outfit into a glamorous and old-Hollywood style one. If your hair is medium or long, opt for big waves with a side part. It is absolutely easy to do this at home. You will need a curling wand and potentially a friend or a family member for those back hair sections.
Half-up half-down hairstyles might be the most popular for the prom. Girls pick all those with braids, ponytails, or high and low buns. A curly half-up half-down can look elegant, yet appropriate for teenagers.
Finally, going with long and straight hair can also be a thing. You can opt for a sparkly hair accessory and leave your hair natural.
The makeup is the last thing you should do on prom night. You get dressed, do your hair, and then do the makeup. This step isn’t about applying makeup only but preparing your skin for the big night in your life.
Taking good care of your skin weeks before the prom is crucial. Don’t experiment with new skincare products, but rather stick to the ones that suit you. Use gentle cleansers, and don’t forget to use face masks. Oil-free moisturizer should be used before putting on makeup as a primer.
Do your makeup 45 minutes before the prom. You will look the freshest for the event if you do your makeup after nails and hair. Whether you are doing your makeup alone or with a pro artist, you should know what you want to achieve.
Make sure the makeup works well with your skin tone and the style you are wearing for the prom. Whether you are choosing something neutral or bold don’t overdo with looks.
Which Style to Pick?
Achieving a natural look is perfect for teenage girls who are not wearing makeup often. Don’t think this is the invisible look. Choose this if your dress is sparkly or has a lot of detail.
Start with the foundation, a bit of blush or bronzer, and add a highlighter on the top of your cheeks. For eye makeup, stick to a neutral eyeshadow palette. Blend all those colors and finish off the look with a few coats of mascara.
Smokey eye is one of the most popular looks that you can try for your prom night. This certainly requires bolder shades, and more products, such as eyeliner. Blended eyeshadows in combination with eyeliner will look perfect.
We hope that these tips will help you! However, the final look is still up to your own preference. Just make sure you’re comfortable and beautiful at the ball. Enjoy a great night!
