3 Hacks for Prom, 2018

By Autumn VanDerBosch

Hair, dress, tux, limos, dinner, and pictures…. While prom is a night to remember, many stress out when preparing for the special event. Here are three hacks to make your prom experience more enjoyable.


Hack #1

For some girls, shoes complete the dress. Ladies, you know exactly what I am talking about. You find these perfect shoes but they are just a little bit too big or small. I have a solution for you! Put on a pair of thick, fuzzy socks, grab a hair drier, place it on the highest heat, directing it at your shoes for about 5-10 minutes. The heat causes your shoes to mold perfectly to your feet! It works on men’s shoes as well.

Hack #2

Blush, mascara, eyeshadow, concealer, highlighter…and foundation. Let's say you're getting ready with your best friends, and oh no! Foundation somehow ended up on your beautiful dress…. I have the fix for you! Grab a bottle of white shaving cream! It's important that it has no pigmentation, so it doesn't stain your dress more. Spray the shaving cream onto your hands, and rub them together until it is foamy. Rub the shaving cream in a circular motion on the stain. Depending on how bad the spill was, you may need to repeat this process a few times.

Hack #3

So it’s the day before prom. You’re rifling through your closet when you come upon a wrinkled up undershirt. You may think ironing it is the answer… but wait! Throw your shirt into the dryer with some ice cubes. When ice is tossed and jostled around, it causes the shirt to become wet, and the heat dries it at the same time, creating a shirt without wrinkles. And you (or your mom) don’t have to go through the struggle with an iron.
