Prom is Here!
But first, I'll start with some quick background information: The prom was first created in English times where they were called Promenades. They were for teenagers (girls and boys) and would have lively dancing, dinner, and socializing. The people would get dressed in their best clothes and gowns (people would mostly buy or make new elegant clothes) and act very polite with manners. The Promenades were so important to these people that most girls would get proposed to at the end for marriage.
Now that I'm done with that, I will start posting tips, dresses, shoes, accesories, and everything else that will make your prom night perfect!Okay here it is.
The dresses featured will be beautiful and let your natural beauty come through. That is why I don't really like the color black for gowns in proms, I prefer the color that suits you best or nudes and beige. Before I tell you the products, I'm going to tell you the colors that suit you best according to skin and hair color.
According To Your Skin Color:
For fair-skinned girls, I really like warm colors to warm up their compexions, so anywhere from peaches to hot pinks and all the way to burnt oranges are fine.
For yellowish complexions: I LOVE reds on you because it picks up your yellow undertones without making you look super yellow. Anywhere from jewel toned raspberry reds to blood-reds is really good.
For olive-skinned complexions browns are very great on you because again, they pick up that hint of olive without making you look green. Also, yellows are great on you.
For medium-skinned girls, I really like cool tones to contrast with their complexions, so colors that vary from sky blues to deep aquas and blue greens to darker (almost navy) blues are great. Lastly: For dark-skinned complexions, I really like jewel toned purples and emerald greens but not together (think of them seperately, so it won't result in a wierd Barney look). Anywhere from lilacs to deep amethysts and bright emerald greens to forest greens are amazing on you.
According To Your Hair Color:
For blondies and brunettes(includes black): I really like for both groups cool colors such as aqua is amazing on both (really it is, for both because to each it makes a huge contrast!) Also, sky blue to navy look great. For brunettes only, canary yellow is really good and for only blondes, light pink is really good.
Redheads: The absolute best color on you would undoubtedly be green. From light chartreuse to shiny shimmery emeralds to forest greens(look best in satin).
UNIVERSAL Color: The color that looks phenomenal on every skin tone and hair color is beige.beige.beige. Beige is great wether it is light creamy nude, champagne, or all the way to mocha cappucino; it is amazing on everybody.
