Ah, prom. The night all teenage girls have been looking forward to in all their 17 years. But no matter how many magazines you power through, selecting the perfect pairing of your dress, hair and makeup is always a confusing task. We decided to present you with the eight most common prom dress necklines and the beauty looks we suggest will look best with each. We make it easy for you by giving you a moodboard for your overall look which you can print out and show to your team of stylists.
But before you go, some rules to remember before you decide on a look:
1. When it comes to picking eyeshadow shades, avoid selecting colors that exactly match your dress. Instead, opt for hues that either complement or contrast your gown.
2. If you have very fine hair, curls or waves may not be the best idea. Curls on a full night of dancing will fall flat at some point during the night. Instead, think of styles that will still look glamorous without forcing your hair into shapes that won't hold.
3. While its great to bring some products for touch-up, you don't need to bring the whole lot. Your lipstick and some oil-blotting paper should be all your need to keep in your clutch. If you're very oily prone, a powder compact should suffice but avoid layering too much on since you don't want to get cakey mid-night.
4. Whatever dress, hair or makeup style you choose, remember to always be age-appropriate! A young woman trying to look too mature always looks a little off. Embrance your age and pick flattering colors, shapes and hues that accentuate your youthful skin and physique.
