Besides a dress and hair appointment, the next most important thing to a girl’s look during prom is her makeup. While most girls do their own makeup, recent numbers show an increasing amount of girls booking appointments to get their makeup professionally done. If you’re one of these girls, then here are tips on things you need to do before hiring someone to do your makeup:
Book ahead: As mentioned before, a growing number of girls are getting their makeup done professionally for prom. It’s best for your sake if you book ahead so you’re guaranteed to have an appointment. If you wait, you might not be able to get an appointment and you’ll end up frustrated and miserable.
Know the policies: If fake eyelashes cost extra, you need to be prepared to pay that extra cost. It is best you know exactly how much you’re going to spend on what you want so there aren’t any surprises when it comes time to pay your bill.
Pay attention to your skin: You need to be hydrated before you make a makeup appointment. Many professionals would agree the to a longwearing look is to have a well-hydrated complexion. Otherwise, you’ll be taking moisture from the makeup you’ll be wearing, thus ruining the makeup. You should exfoliate and clean your skin prior to your makeup application to prevent this.
Don’t go overboard: Most girls (and most importantly guys) would agree that girls that look like a Barbie doll are actually unattractive. Therefore, don’t go overboard with your look. Have a glowing, balanced look instead of a fake, plastic look. You’ll look a lot better and you will showcase your natural beauty instead of a fake, unrealistic look.
Know your makeup artist: While it’s not necessarily a requirement to know your makeup artist, it’s still a good idea to at least speak to them. This will ensure you two are both on the same page and so you both know exactly what the plan is when it is time for your appointment.
Work with your hairstyle: Finally, it’s a good idea that your hair and makeup should work together. After all, they are both really accessories during prom. Don’t get too complicated with your hairstyle so it takes away from your makeup and vice versa. Likewise, think about a style that will accommodate you when your eating and dancing too.
Remember, prom is supposed to be fun. Don’t stress too much about your hair, your makeup, or your dress and focus on having the best possible time while you enjoy your last high school dance.
