Prom Prep: Those Finishing Touches.

23 Jun 2014

So apart from a little Prom recap I have planned including some photos of my prom, this is my last Prom Prep post. I thought I would round up everything else up into this one post with all those last minute bits or things I haven't included in any other posts so this will be short but hopefully sweet and you enjoy it all the same.

The Shoes: The shoes, to me, were not a bit part of my outfit as, with my dress being floor length, I felt there was no point spending much money my shoes so I bought these simple black heels from Dorothy Perkins. It was actually surprisingly hard finding plain black heels that weren't too tall but when I saw these for £30, I had to buy them. I will also mention here that I bought a pack of the School Part Feet get patches which, I think, are o stop shoes rubbing which I thought would be a handy thing to wear being not a constant high heel wearer so I thought they'd make everything feel a lot more comfortable.

The Make Up: They always say before a big event you shouldn't use a face mask just before or try any new products. I decided to ignore that last one and decided to buy a new mascara and primer. I thought both of these would really effect my skin and I felt the risk of trying these new products would be worth it. I decided it was best for me to get a waterproof mascara and I thought I would risk trying a new one so I thought I'd try the Maybelline The Falsies. I was thinking about about buying some lashes but seeing as I'd never worn them before and they just didn't appeal to me I thought this mascara would be fine and I think it's perfect to give my lashes a lot more length; not as much volume as it does length but I think it works great. I also thought the L'Oreal Blur Cream would be a good edition in helping to blur out my pores and so far I really like it so I'm planning a full review so let me know if you'd like to see that! I also bought a lip liner from Rimmel but it seemed to bleed so I don't think I'll be using it for prom.

The Hair: just a quick one to say that I've actually decided to change my hair and instead of having it up, I'm jut going to have it down a curly as I didn't feel comfortable having it up- I didn't feel like it was secure enough because of how thick my hair is.

The Jewelry: I knew from the start that I wasn't going to be wearing a necklace because of the high kneckline of my dress but I was up to having a bracelet, rings and earrings. I found the perfect set of earrings and the perfect bracelet in the Topshop sale so I thought they were worth buying even if I decided not to wear them to prom. For the rings, I'll just be wearing a selection of rings I already own and will chose the specific ones on the day

After Prom: It's almost tradition that one, maybe two of our school years pupils has a party after prom so I've been on the hunt for a nice dress and it's been hard trying to find one that's perfect! I hadn't shopped on Forever 21 in a while as I had a bit of a problem with an order once but I was getting desperate. I then found a cami dress which is shown in the photo and you can also see here. I'm not one who likes clothes with thin straps so I will be wearing a cardigan long with tights and my converse. I will keep my make up the same as what I wore from prom along with my jewelry.

So that's it! Almost everything is ready for prom and hopefully, by the time this goes up, my dress will have finished being altered. Yes, we've left it this late!
If you have your prom this week or coming up let me know!
Hope you're doing great,


  1. Everyone has such high expectations for prom and if I'm 100% honest it was rubbish. The best part was the after party, and even then I went home with a migraine! Buzzing!!

    1. I'm more nervous than excited and from what everyone says prom is a very over rated occasion which is why I'm glad I haven't splashed the cash on too much for prom!
