It's Prom Week here at Twist! For the next seven days we'll share hairstyles, makeup must-haves, dress ideas and night-saving tips that will make your big day as perfect as possible!
Prom day is crazy-hectic. You're going to scramble to get your hair, makeup and nails done. Then once your dress is on, you'll be doing final touch-ups right until the second your date knocks on the door. After that it's time for pictures and then you have to run out to make your dinner reservations -- we're exhausted just thinking about it!
Amidst all the (fun) craziness, you may forget some very important things to take with you to the dance. So we're here to help. Besides your phone and money, below are five things to make sure to pack in your clutch.
Makeup for touch-ups: No need to carry around your entire beauty collection, just make sure you have the essentials: concealer, mascara and lipcolor. We especially love L'Oreal's Telescopic Shocking Extensions mascara ($9.95, lorealparisusa.com), since it makes your lashes crazy-long and gorgeous. And for concealer and lipcolor, pick up Drew Barrymore's Flower Petite Fleurs Pocket Triplet Concealer ($6.98, walmart.com) and Lip ($6.98, walmart.com). Each item is 3-in-1, so you'll have multiple shades to choose from and it won't take up any room in your clutch!
Blotting papers: You'll probably be getting down on the dance floor all night, so make sure you have something to clean your face with. Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets will come in very handy. ($5.49, drugstore.com)
Blister prevention: Trust us: Dr. Scholl's For Her Miracle Shield Stick ($8.39, amazon.com) is a lifesaver. Rub it on the back of your ankles and wherever else you're prone to blisters, and your feet will thank you in the morning.
Double-sided tape: Wardrobe malfunctions happen to everyone, so be prepared with Hollywood Fashion Tape ($8.99, hollywoodfashionsecrets.com). It will help keep your dress's neckline in place and it's a quick way to fix a hem that's too long.
Breath freshener: We don't think we need to explain why Listerine PocketPaks ($7.38, amazon.com) are a must.
