How to look like an A-List celebrity at your prom

Prom season is well and truly here, with many of us graduating from college or university and wanting to unwind and celebrate our achievements with friends. If you want to make the right impression this prom season and dress like an A-lister, then we’ve got the guide for you. Read on to learn the behind-the-scenes tricks that keep celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Lady Gaga looking their best, whether they’re attending a red carpet event or walking to the mall.

Find the perfect dress

The single most important thing that you need to think about when you’re planning a prom outfit is your dress. You could follow in the footsteps of Rihanna and choose an elegant maxi dress to wear at your prom, which is lightweight and allows for breathing, or go down the traditional route and find a stunning prom dress from a company such as Angrila. Start your prom dress planning as soon as you can – celebrities often have their dresses ready up to six months in advance when they’re attending an important press conference or premiere, so do the same to make sure you’re comfortable with your choice and have the time to find accessories and more.

Choose the right makeup

Once you’ve chosen the perfect prom dress, the next thing to consider is your makeup. Sure, celebrities like Kylie Jenner have their own makeup artists on hand to do the hard work for them, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t look just as good at your prom. A gentle rose glitter makeup effect can help you stand out and look like a real star. After your foundation and primer, use a nude colour over our eyelid, apply the glitter, add mascara, line your eye, clean up the glitter to avoid it from taking over your face, and then complete your makeup with highlighter, eyebrows and a lip gloss. It’s a simple and effective technique that only takes a minute or two to look right.

Smell like a goddess

Makeup isn’t the only important thing you need to think about. Choose the right perfume so that you smell the part, whether you’re partying until sunset or dancing in the prom hall. You’ll want to go all out for your prom perfume, as you’ll likely be sat in the same clothes for hours on end, so choose a quality, long-lasting fragrance that doesn’t overpower. Once you’ve found one you like, consider buying a travel perfume pod so that you can freshen up throughout the night.

Learn to accessorise

Accessories should also be considered when you’re planning the perfect prom look. As well as a hairpiece, you should think about a matching bag that suits your dress (preferably a small clutch bag that doesn’t take up too much space), a chainmail choker to help you stand out from the crowd, and some earrings that you can wear without making you feel weighed down.

Arrive in style

Now that you’re looking your best, it’s time to decide how you’re going to get to prom. If you want to make sure eyes are turned when you roll up, you need to think about a way to stand out. You could choose a limousine or a vintage bus, or one of these incredible entrances. From arriving in the back of an ambulance to jumping off of a camel, there are endless possibilities!
