Prom Makeover

The prefect prom makeover is an essential part of this important night. Try out a few makeup, hair, accessory and shoe styles that will go perfectly with your dress. To play, you'll need:

  • Accessories (jewelry, shoes, handbags, etc.)
  • Makeup
  • Hair styling products (bobby pins, hairspray, etc.)
  • Paper and pencils/pens
  • Three or more friends
  • Style magazines/internet
  • Possibly a coin

Now, you're ready to play. Follow these steps:

  1. Research three (or more depending on the people) different hairstyle and makeup trends that you like.
  2. Each person should pick one style in both makeup and hair. If two people like the same style, flip for it.
  3. Starting with the hair, have your friends use the styling products to try to mimic the style.
  4. Now, use the makeup to mimic the makeup style you were assigned.
  5. Each person should now dress up their style with accessories like jewelry, tiaras, etc.
  6. Have each person display their style through a runway catwalk.
  7. Grab a piece of paper and pen.
  8. Each person should rate the styles from best to worst, based on execution and cuteness.
  9. The one with the highest score wins.
  10. Now take a selfie.

Try It On For Size

It's great to look at prom dresses and all but trying to imagine how they are going to look on you is a nightmare. Does the color clash with your skin tone? Is the cut right for you? Rather than try to guess, try the dress or accessories on for size. Here's what you'll need:

  • Printer
  • Internet access/magazines
  • Full body selfie (You want this to be a true selfie, no filters or flattering angles)
  • Notebook
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Lots of friends
  • Colored pencils

Once you have the materials, it's time for the know-how. All the players should follow these steps to find the perfect prom dress.

  1. Print out several selfies and cut them out. Trying to stay as close as possible to your body proportions. (Also make sure the image is close to the size of your other cuts outs for proportions.)
  2. Peruse the internet or style magazines finding dresses, accessories, shoes, hair, etc. that you like.
  3. Print or cut the styles out of a magazine.
  4. Carefully cut out the different pieces.
  5. Glue the selfies and the styles into your notebook. Noting how the different styles look on you.
  6. Have your friends rate each different style from 1 to 10. One is the best.
  7. The outfit with the highest score wins.
  8. Make it unique and create your own prom dress styles as well.

If you want to skip the glue, scissors and notebook, there are apps available that will let you try on clothes after uploading an avatar. However, these aren't specifically designed for prom dresses so finding the perfect prom outfit might be harder.
