Looking for something that can be done the day before prom and will really give your whole look an extra amount of dazzle? Get ready – because we have the most delicious, shiniest, and easy DIY Sugar Scrub that will make you and your prom gown glow non-stop!

DIY Sugar Scrub for Shiny, Fresh Out of the Salon Hair

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbs. of Sugar in the Raw
  • 3 Tbs. White, Refined Sugar
  • 2 Tbs. Almond Extract or Lavender Oil
  • 2 Tsp. Fresh Lemon Juice

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in a small, Tupperware container.  Take in the shower with you, and apply to your scalp after you’ve shampooed your hair. Massage the mixed into your scalp with your fingertips for 5-10 minutes. The thing you want to concentrate on when massaging the mixture into your hair is freeing the build up from product residue on your scalp, cleansing it and making sure that the shine comes back to your hair. After your 5-10 minutes is up, rinse the mixture from your hair thoroughly with cold or cooler water. Your hair should shine like it does when you get back from the salon after you do this sweet treatment!

Need some ideas for an after-prom party? We have three fun, affordable ways to do it!

Need some ideas for an after-prom party? We have three fun, affordable ways to do it!

After prom 2014 comes to an end, where do you head to? Some people head out to a bowling alley, or out to the movies to watch an early release, but most people head to a party. Perhaps you have the honor of hosting the post-prom party for you and your friends this year, but aren’t sure what to do. DressProm.net has some fun, affordable, and safe ideas for you and your friends to have a blast after one of the biggest nights of your life!

The Movie Marathon – This is something that everyone can enjoy in their formalwear or in the pajamas! Whether you decide on a horror movie marathon, or a chick-flick extravaganza, this after-prom party idea is affordable, relaxing, and always a blast. Plus – if you provide the movies, your friends can help pitch in with the snacks. Get your footie pajamas ready and a bowl of popcorn on your lap, because this post-prom gathering is one for the books.

Board Game Bash – This is a party that could bring out the kid in all of you. Whether it’s tying yourselves up in knots with a good game of Twister or getting competitive with the Game of Life, board games are always a fun choice for after prom. Have your friends bring their favorite board game to your house. Maybe try and stay up all night and play them all!

The Late Night Pool Party – Even if you don’t have a pool, you can still act like it’s a summer day when it’s the dark of night. If a larger pool isn’t in the cards, grab a fun, kiddie pool and let your friends hang out in them! You can get all the fixing for a pool party too – barbeque, chips, soda, and maybe some S’mores for later. Everyone can pitch in a few dollars towards the food fund and you can all get out your swimsuit, flip flops, and shades to celebrate after prom a little unconventionally.

After the dance is over and your prom dress is turned in for a pair of jeans, you want to have some fun with your friends to complete your night to remember! Of course – prom can be a pricey event, so why not have some fun without spending all your cash? We have some great ideas for what you and your friends can do after prom that won’t break your bank, but still create memories for years to come.

  • The movies – Many movie theaters across the country are open until 12 a.m., and sometimes even have premiers for highly anticipated movies at that time too. Check out your local theater for a flick and maybe if you’re lucky – you’ll be able to see the premier of a great movie before anyone else!
  • Bowling – Maybe you’re not the best bowler around, but chances are your friends aren’t professionals either. Grab your date and a few of your closest friends for some fun, midnight bowling. Maybe even skip changing out of your prom garb and hit the lanes in your gowns & tuxes!
  • Breakfast – Maybe your prom gets out at 11 p.m. or later, and you’re all starving from dancing the night away. Make a stop at an all-night local diner for breakfast! Who doesn’t love eating pancakes, bacon, and eggs late at night?
  • Host a Movie Marathon – Maybe going to the movies is a little out of your prom budget. Why not host an all-night movie marathon at your house? Watching your favorite movies with some of your favorite friends can make for an awesome, after-prom fiesta.

From Prom Dresses to Eyeliner: What You Need to Know About Beauty

Jan 24, 2014

Snag these easy beauty tips to lighten your purse when you head out prom dress shopping!

Snag these easy beauty tips to lighten your purse when you head out prom dress shopping!

What do you pack in your purse for beauty purposes throughout the day? The average woman’s purse is close to 30 lbs. – yes, that much – but is it all necessary? We have some tips to help you cut down on all the beauty products you carry around in your purse! So when you’re shopping for prom dresses or just having a day out on the town, you can enjoy it without carrying around all that weight.

  • To prevent smudging your eyeliner throughout the day, blot your eyelids with an oil-removing tissue before applying eye makeup.
  • If you do smudge your eyeliner or mascara under your eye, dab a non-medicated chapstick underneath the eye and the makeup should come off with a tissue.
  • Having a static problem with your hair – or even worse – your skirt? Use a small amount of lotion (preferably ones with no dye involved) on either the outside of your legs/tights, or ends of your hair. The moisture will help nip static electricity in the bud!
  • Use a SPF moisturizer before you put on your makeup in the morning, even if it’s winter.
  • Make sure you check the labels of your chapstick before you buy them – some of the most popular brands contain alcohol, which dry out your lips.
  • Broke your favorite eye shadow? No problem! Empty the eye shadow crumbs out onto a paper towel, add just a bit of rubbing alcohol to the container, put the crumbs back in and press down until it’s all combined again!
  • Don’t throw away your mascara before it’s time, even if it seems like it may be all gone. Add a few drops of contact solution to the mascara tube; shake, and your mascara will be brought back to life! And also – this prevents clumping too.

Rocking Your Perfect Prom 2014 Makeup

Find out how to match your makeup with your prom 2014 the right way!

Find out how to match your makeup with your prom 2014 the right way!

Looking for some inspiration when it comes to your prom 2014 makeup? We have the tips on how to successfully complete your prom look – from head to toe!

  • Picking out which kind of dress goes with your skin tone should be the first thing you do. Need help determining what kind of color matches with your skin tone? Check out our blog here on how to determine if you have cool or warm undertones.
  • After you pick out which dress compliments you the best, it’s time to decide what kind of makeup scheme you’re going to want to coordinate with. Is your dress flashy with tons of colors or is it a solid, statement dress that deserves a little more dramatic eyeliner? Deciding on what should be the star of your prom 2014 style – whether it’s the makeup, shoes, or dress – needs to be determined.

Simple Dress, Dramatic Makeup

  • If this is your case, like our Evening Prom Gown Alyce B’Dazzle in Red (35514), you’re going to want to play up your makeup. When the dress doesn’t have a lot going on, playing up your eyes, lips, or brows can be your focal point. Try out a sleek, black cat-eye if you’re looking to dramatize your look.

Flashy Dress, Flashy Eyes

  • Have a floral dress, like our Colorful Printed Charmeuse Faviana Prom Gown (6952)? Don’t worry – you can still make your makeup flashy, too! When there’s a lot of vibrant colors used in the pattern, you can pick one of them to use as your eye shadow. However, go easy on the amount of shadow you put on your eyes – you want it to be subtle enough that your gorgeous dress is still the focal point!
