Look, it's Prom round two. I got asked to another school's prom at 11:30 the night before. You would think that it would be impossible to pull together, but no. I did it and it was SO MUCH FUN. Seriously!! There are a few things that I did that night before and the morning of that helped pull this glamorous look together. Today I will be sharing those few tips with you to help you if you are ever needing to get ready for an event in less than 24 hours as well!!
1. The dress/Outfit
THE DRESS! This is the most important part of the look in my opinion. I found this dress ten minutes after I was asked to the dance, the night before prom. I borrowed it from my cousin's cute girlfriend. Previously I had talked to her about borrowing it sometime in the future so I already had the connection. It is good to know your options and either have a few inexpensive dresses in your closet that can aid you at a time of crisis or know what your friends have and what fits so that you can borrow their dresses without causing yourself unneeded stress.
2. Self Tan
Not only do I love to have a little golden glow, but having a little tan just makes everything look better. It makes your skin look more healthy but it also plays a little mind game on our eyes and makes us look more slender (like when you wear all black, yeah you know what I mean.) One thing that I hate about natural tanning by either laying out in the sun, going to a tanning salon, or even just the sun exposure that we get on a daily basis is that it is so harmful to our skin and will make our skin age faster, yikes. My solution to this problem is to constantly wear sunscreen when I'm out in the sun and then when I want a little extra glow I self tan with a product called "Fake Bake". I swear by this product, you don't turn orange anywhere or at anytime and it goes on SO even. I've never had a problem with streaking. You can get it at Ulta but it is so much less expensive if you buy it on Amazon. One day I bought the airbrush version at Ulta for $32 and I came home and used it and my mom wanted some so she went on Amazon and bought it online for $12. So yeah, Amazon is your best bet. Love love love this product, always have a bottle on hand ready to use!
3. Eye Catching Jewelry
Accessories are an important and easy way to make your event outfit flow. I found this necklace at Charming Charlie at 11:00 am, the morning of my event. I always love Charming Charlie when I need event jewelry. I always find exactly what I need. I buy all of my jewelry for my high school dances here!
4. Chic and Simple Hairstyle
Trying to figure out what you are doing with your hair is one of the hardest parts of putting together a stunning look. My advise is to have a chic but simple hairstyle on hand, one that you have found and practiced ahead of time so that if you have a last minute event come up, you don't have to worry about it. I find my inspiration for hair and makeup ideas on Pinterest and then try out the styles so that I know if they work on my hair or not. Go follow me on Pinterest to see what inspires me!
