It’s been several years since high school and dances, but that never stops me from ogling at all the gorgeous dresses on display at the mall or in almost every magazine. High school dances hold some of my happiest memories, so whenever prom or homecoming season rolls around, my heart always does little flips of pure joy. Sometimes, I wish there was a ball or formal that I was going to so I could get all fancied up again, but in the meantime, I simply live vicariously through my cousins or anyone who posts pictures on Facebook detailing their night.
When I think back to the getting ready process, I remember how important the month prior to the special event was. From building up a fake tan (I regrettably used a tanning bed), to getting last-minute workouts in so we could look our best in our dresses, I think the most important was prepping your face for prom season. Yes girls wear makeup for the event, but when you have a healthy, acne-free base, your look is so much more flawless.
