5 Tips to Look Best in Prom Photos!
You spend enormous amounts of time picking out your prom dress and getting ready, so you should be sure to immortalize your effort in photographs. Your prom pictures are a lifelong reminder of one of the most exciting nights of your life. To ensure that your pictures look as great as you do, here are some quick tips.
Be Happy in Your Photos
It’s normal to be nervous when you are having your picture taken, but the best pictures are ones where you look natural. Have someone tell a joke or try to remember a funny story while pictures are being taken. You will look more relaxed and your smile will be genuine.
Strike a Pose
Being photographed straight on makes you appear larger than you are. This can be great for guys, but it is not typically a flattering pose for girls. Standing at a slight angle will make you appear narrower, and is also a great way to show off a bit of the luxe back detailing on your fab dress.
Tame Your Hair
Updos are a great way to do something different with your hair, but complicated styles may be difficult to achieve on your own. To ensure that your hair looks great and stays in place, have a professional style your hair for prom, or save your money and check out DIY video tips. Gently remind your date that a fresh haircut would look sharp with his tux.
Makeup and Grooming
You’ll want your makeup to last throughout prom, so use waterproof mascara, durable foundation and crease-resistant eye shadow. Remember that primer can help all those gorgeous colors stay where they belong. If you happen to be selected for prom royalty, have a compact ready for a quick fix before pics.
Picking an Outfit
Your prom dress should fit well and be as comfortable as possible. While prom attire will never be as cozy as your pajamas, you don’t want something you can’t move in. David’s Bridal offers lots of short prom dresses and super-danceable jersey options. Additionally, a few minor alterations can help you achieve the perfect fit.
