Simplicity is the key to beauty. A face heavily caked with make-up or a dress that’s neither here or there destroys all attempts at creating a lasting good impression. True, you won’t have all eyes on you at the doorway but the longer people eye you throughout the dance or the wedding service, they’ll notice more than just your prom dress or bridesmaid dress.
They’ll see your good skin, engaging manners, and beautiful smile. They more they look at you the more you’ll be beautiful for them. But if you had your face heavily made-up or wear one of those hideous bridesmaid dresses you’ll lose it all. Remember, people will remember the fiasco for a long time. You can’t endure the thought, right? So better wizen up when you shop for prom or bridesmaid dresses.
Your dress and makeup should be carefully planned out because these should complement each other. Your makeup should enhance your looks not alter your face to something your friends can’t recognize. An expert makeup artist won’t stand the thought of your highlighting both your eyes and your lips. Either you do your eyes extra fancy and downplay your lips, or the other way around – that’s the way it should be.
Dress to Impress Not to Shock
Bridesmaid dresses or prom frocks come in various designs to fit a theme. Choose one to enhance your figure, not show more skin. You definitely can’t dress “slutty” for the wedding or the prom! Yeah, the prom or the bridesmaid gig is a girl thing but that doesn’t give you license to wear a two piece sequined bikini with a tulle skirt masquerading as a gown.
A young girl like you should be wearing a dress that enhances your youth and glamorizes your looks without demeaning your femininity. A princess dress or a svelte bare-backed gown that fits well can boost your chances for the most dances.
Heed your mom’s good fashion sense and look up the tastefully designed prom or bridesmaid dresses. If it is a prom or a wedding, dress appropriately, those shocking togs can have their day. You cannot allow people to talk of your fashion disaster the whole year!
What to Do
Months before the prom or wedding, start scouting for the dresses. Start with online shops catering to prom and wedding dresses. You will find scores of designer labels for rent or for sale. The same online shop will carry accessories – jewelry and shoes – to complete your prom or bridesmaid look.
For your makeup, if there is a look you like on a young Hollywood star, take the picture to a makeup stylist for her to copy the look and if you have the money to spare, have your face made up to check if it is perfect. Before anything else though or the countdown to the special day, go on a diet and exercise to fit into those prom or bridesmaid dresses and be styled pretty for the big day.
