Prom night is no ordinary night. Thankfully, there’s no need to panic when you can prep like a pro. From awesome accessories to makeup that stays put, here are six stress-reducing ways to look and feel your best on the big night.
If you don’t feel comfortable in heels, reach for a pair of fancy flats and dance the night away in carefree style. Prefer the look of a high heel? Take your stilettos out for a spin to break them in and make a blister-proofing plan.
Maximize your wardrobe potential with a pair of shoes you can wear post-prom. Rather than collecting dust at the back of your closet, an embellished heel can look surprisingly fresh with jeans and tee. Meanwhile, stunning flats will give your go-to sneakers a run for their money.
If you want to experiment with a new hair or makeup style, be sure to test-drive your look before the big day. Start incorporating new skincare and hair products into your routine at least one week ahead of time, and try out any new cosmetics in advance to avoid any last-minute mishaps.
Prep your skin with a primer to smooth, conceal and hold your makeup in place. Look for long-lasting and waterproof products that will ward off unwanted smudging, and seal the deal with a setting mist on your face and a strong-hold hairspray on your strands.

Bring your essentials (phone, money, makeup, keys) to the mall to make sure they fit inside your purse of choice. Look for handy details like slim pockets and cross-body straps that will keep you organized and able to have fun, hands free, all night.
Add some extra sparkle to your dress with a chain strap bag you can easily rock again with jeans. To give your prom outfit some punch, reach for a colourful handbag, or match your dress with a tone-on-tone purse for a seamless party look.
