How to Plan Your Prom

Young Couples Dancing at Coming of Age PartyOne of the most exciting dances of the year is prom. If you are planning your special night, there are several things you need to consider. From shopping for the ideal dress to wearing the right makeup, prom can be stressful. Here are some things you can do to make planning for prom easier.


For Girls

Go with a dark, smudgy eye shadow. Choose a deep shade of green, blue, gray, brown or purple. Brown and purple make blue eyes pop, while blue and green work well with brown eyes. To get the smudgy rock star look, apply a little bit of petroleum jelly to your lids, then top with eye shadow. Use a neutral color, like bone, to highlight your brow bone and give your eyebrows definition.


Use a black liner pencil on your top and bottom lashes, getting as close to the lash line as possible. Follow up with a liquid or gel liner in blackest black. Apply the liquid or gel liner on your upper lids only, moving from the inner corner to the outer corner on top of the pencil line. Allow the line to get thicker as you get closer to the outer corner.


To highlight your cheekbones, add some contour to your cheeks with just a touch of a matte bronzer. Choose a bronzer that is three shades darker than your skin tone. Suck in your cheeks, then use a contour brush to apply the bronzer along the line that forms just below your cheekbones. If you want, you can add just a touch of highlighter on your cheekbones.


Use a bright red lip liner to outline your lips. Extend the lip line just outside of the natural lip line to get a full, pouty look. Finally, fill in your lips with a matching lipstick. Alternately, you can go with a lip stain instead of a lipstick. Lip stains last longer and, unlike lipstick, won’t end up on your teeth or anywhere else it shouldn’t. To add shine with a lip stain, use a touch of lip gloss in the center of your lips.


For Boys

While asking the girl to prom is hard, the difficult part often comes to planning the perfect date. You need to look at some fun activities that you can do that will make prom memorable. One awesome thing to do is to rent a limo from as they have multiple unique styles to choose from. It’s a great way to enjoy the night and let someone else do the driving to make sure you to get to the dance on time!


Once you have the car, plan out the details of dinner and anything else that you think will be fun. It is important to remember your date will be in a formal dress, so you need to plan on a nicer restaurant. Avoid the cheap restaurants as the atmosphere isn’t what you want from a prom date. There are several prominent restaurants all over the state of Utah that you can choose from.


Remember, prom isn’t a cheap date! It’s a good idea to plan ahead so you can save up for your special night!
