Prom 2018: Tips For Hair, Makeup, & The Dress

Whether you are excited to go to prom or an anxious parent making sure your daughter gets the best experience possible, here are some tips that will help you rest at ease. I remember getting ready for my prom. The hair, the make-up, the dress (yes, it is all about the dress), it can be stressful. Here are some tips for it all!

  1. Dresses

The dress can be the key to a great prom night or a horrible one. According to jovani.com (link: https://bit.ly/2IQgrdZ), here are the five best dress styles going on this season 2018.

Metallic shades:

This look is definitely a head turner this season. Being so popular on the red carpet today, it this style comes in shades of gold, silver, and bronze as well as more commonly used colors such as blue, green and red. Pair this with a smokey eye or add some glamorous red lipstick.

The open back:

Want to give your daughter a chance to feel a little sassy, yet tasteful? The open back is a big trend this year for the runway. It also comes in many different styles and cuts. There is something for everyone. This is definitely a look great for a vintage  makeup look. Make sure you wear your hair up in a classy bun and do not forget to take that famous turn around pose.

Soft pastel:

This is by far my favorite, pastel shades for prom. Pastel colors are always elegant, attractive and tasteful. Pair this with some bronze and nude makeup and loose hairstyles and you have the perfect look for the perfect prom.

Cutouts and strappy details:

Whether it is spaghetti crisscrosses or other unique cuts out designs, it is definitely a must choice for prom. Its classy and attractive. This 90s classic is coming back for 2018. A sleek straighten hairstyle is your best bet and it lets the dress do the talking. Keep the makeup, clean and soft.

Velvet:

Color is the key to finding the perfect velvet dress. Whether you are looking for a dress that is a simple color (blue, pink, red) or something a bit more complex such as a mermaid cut. You can also do something more simple in cut such as ballroom gown style. Match this dress with a bold lip, matching heels and clutch. if you have a low neckline, add a poppin' gold or silver necklace.

It is almost the end of February already and you know what that means…? The hope for Spring is just around the corner! Time to feel the warm sun, plan trips and of course trade in those heavy winter coats for a flattering spring dress. I know for a fact I also like to know the latest trends in cosmetics.

We here at Be Pure Beauty Bar have researched and came up with six must-have items this spring/summer 2018:

 

1.     Tea Stained Eye Shadow

This look is popular on the runway this season and it's obvious why. We recommend L’Oreal Paris Infallible Shaping Stick.

As if this isn’t obvious. What girl doesn't want to bat their eyelashes this spring? Long eyelashes are definitely not going out of style anytime soon. We love Dior Pumpshow Pump n’ Volume Mascara.

Fashion Week 2018! Our Favorite Styles

We all love fashion and 2018’s New York Fashion is sadly over. No fears though! We here at Be Pure Beauty Bar love all the beautiful makeup, hairstyles and of course fashion! We would like to share with you our favorite looks from this year.

Prabal Gurung

Prabal Gurung’s line this week during New York Fashion was simple beautiful and colorful. Prabal has been a strong influence on empowering and embracing feminism as he quoted on social media: “This is the #pgworld, where we celebrate female solidarity, we share colours of Prabal’s home in the east and we present a vision of our collective future, a future that is #StrongInColour.”

Leanne Marshall

I don’t know about you but I am a sucker for evening gowns and dresses. This year on Valentine’s Day, Leanne Marshall at Gallery II at Spring Studios shared some perfect gowns for 2018. Not only were they gorgeous gowns, but Leanne supports women of all sizes! The gowns are gorgeous and elegant; the women are beautiful and strong. What more could we ask for?

Esteben Cortazer

Columbian designer, Esteben Cortazer has taken a huge storm bringing diversity to the runaway. He brings a modern twist with greys, greens and earthy colors to the everyday working woman. He has taken a lot of inspiration from other cities his work has grown which gives it a beautiful, sophisticated and worldly feel.

Michael Kor

Now I love my Michael Kors and this year he really mixed everything... literally everything! Anything from plaid, floral prints, and stripes. According to Vogue.com, "Kors’s show felt effortlessly inclusive in multiple ways. There were unknowns and there were runway vets, twiggy girls, and curvy ones, male and female models from all over the globe. Kors sees beauty everywhere—a fitting message for Valentine’s Day." -Nichole Phelps

Tom Ford

Animal prints, leggings, you are looking back at a revamped 80's style. Last but not least, Tom Ford's combat with his unique style during New York Fashion Week.  According to Nichole Phelps, Vogue Author, "Tom Ford in a nutshell: confident in the extreme and irreverent to the edge of defiance. For every viewer that questions this show’s good taste, there’s another that’ll call it glamour and be seduced." His work definitely deserves a second look.
