Flawless Face: Prom Preparations 2015



Looking perfect seems like a must for prom; however, we all know perfection is unattainable but a flawless complexion is not. Beautiful skin can be achieved in a few short days with a consistent regimen that targets your problematic areas.

Do any of the problems listed below apply to your complexion? Use the solutions provided to ensure you are rocking that prom dress without a worry in the world.

Problem: Zit Breakout
Answer: Acne-fighting salicylic acid based creams are perfect for targeting those little red dots. To reduce the swelling of the pimple apply an acne spot treatment like Burt's Bees Natural Acne Solutions Spot Treatment to the zit before bed and again in the morning. With a dab of concealer under your makeup no one will even know it is there.

Problem: Puffy, Dark Circles
Answer: A lack of rest or added stress can cause water retention around the eyes causing those unsightly dark circles that make you appear tired. The extra fluid around your lids make your eyes look heavy and highlight any darkness underneath. To clear up those pesky dark circles use a treatment that soothes while it de-puffs like Sephora's Instant Depuffing Roll-On Gel.

Problem: Redness
Answer: Relax any irritation you may have with a calming moisturizer that contains cucumbers or aloe like Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Daily Calming Moisturizer. The calming ingredients soothe redness and pamper you skin unveiling a radiant complexion.

Problem: Oiliness
Answer: Oily skin usually means constant powder touch ups throughout the night; however, spending a few extra minutes with a facial mask will be a time saver in the long run. Apply a mask that gently absorbs pore clogging dirt and oil like the Murad Clarifying Mask.

Problem: Dryness
Answer: Dry patches often appear due to hormonal fluctuations but have no fear! Use a night cream both before bed and again in the morning to provide your skin with the much needed moisture that it will need. A thick formula like the Neutrogena Deep Moisture Night Cream will prevent flakiness and keep your skin looking fresh all day long.

Prom preparations include the typical hair trials, nail and make-up appointments and prom gown alterations but we rarely prepare for the unexpected. If the unexpected does happen do not go into panic mode. Analyze your skin and choose your problem area to find the solution most suited for you then watch your flawless face unveil in a matter of days!

Country girl at heart? Love the great outdoors? Plan a country chic wedding that will leave all of your guests in awe. Choose a gorgeous venue like a barn house that will allow you to utilize the landscape for your ceremony. Adorn your space to the nines with crafty and creative DIY decor like burlap covered champagne glasses or a garland of lights hanging from unexpected places. Adding a personal touch is key to creating that country atmosphere that will keep your guests wanting more.

Do not forget the small details that make this fantastic theme come together like a gorgeous bouquet of rustic shabby chic flowers created with lots of love. Get creative, wrap some burlap around the base and add some lace details to truly make your one-of-a-kind look come to life.  
Intrigue your guests from the moment you walk down the aisle in a wedding gown that suits your theme effortlessly like JB23661. This off-white cap sleeve lace dress features a plunging neckline with a sheer mesh panel and a sexy open back. The form fitting silhouette with the chapel train provide for a no fuss breathtaking look that is perfect for a march down a fresh pasture of grass. Simplicity is best with an intricate lace bridal gown so you do not have to worry about accessorizing too much. A simple pair of chandelier earrings complete your picture perfect look. Choose a hairstyle with large voluminous curls for that gone with the wind vibe while you are saying your "I do's."

When your big day arrives, relax and soak up every last minute. It is easy to stress over every last detail but trust that all of your hard work will come together for a wedding that you can be proud of. Take hundreds of pictures that you will cherish for years to come and mingle with your guests. Remember everyone that is a part of your special day is there to celebrate you and the love you and your husband-to-be have for each other.

Nail Art for the Prom

Clean and defined nails at the prom are essential to completing your look. To make sure you are ready for your big night, make an overall assessment of your look and what will work best for your big night.

The nail trends for spring 2013 call for soft elegance, neon colors, and embellishments.  Take pastels for example, they often go with almost any look and create a soft look that is unforgettable. If your dress is soft and romantic choose shades like mint and rose for your nails.



Embellished nails are created with rhinestones, bows, sequins and almost anything you can think of that will make your nails anything but ordinary. If your prom look is funky and fun, focus on the details of your dress and accessories. Will your nails make your look “over the top” or will they complete it. If you love bows, why not express that with your nails? It’s easy to do. Find your favorite bow (nail size of course) and let your creativity run free.



Take your French manicure to another level by adding sparkles and color. Focus on what compliments the hue or shade of your prom dress. Colors like teals, pinks, and blues make for interestingly chic nails. A short dress can be dolled up with an interesting nail design.




Finally, when all else fails go for a nude shade. It is fool proof and will complement any look you can come up with. Stick with skin tones and focus on making sure your nails are clean and filed. It’s all you need to party with friends and have a great time! If you are wearing a nude inspired dress, you may want to opt for this nail look.
