Last-minute tricks for looking cute 'n' carefree at your spring dance

Ditch the heels and slip on sandals.
Prom can get pricey. Instead of shelling out for yet another expensive (aka, shoes you’ll only wear once!), rock a pair of bling-y flat sandals with your gown. You’ll wear them for the rest of spring…and all throughout summer.

Abandon tricky eyeliner for easy stuff.

If you’ve gotta get out the door in 46 seconds, attempting to do up liquid liner might be tough. Hello, pressure. Enter our BFF, the marker-like liner. Easy to perfect and goes on just as smooth as liquid.

Actually, abandon all tricky makeup!

We heart lipstick and matte lips and the like. But when you’ve got a bazillion things cooking (like trying to find your clutch and text your BFF about her ’do), who wants to fret about attempting foundation for the first time or the right way to feather on lip liner. Bold gloss and a tinted moisturizer will look just fab.

Don’t stress about your bag.

OK, you don’t want to lug your backpack to the semi, but you can soo slack on the search for the perf clutch. Finding a dress and bra that fit like a charm should be high on your dance must-list. Once you get down to the tiny deets (like a bag!), you can ease up a bit. Besides, if you want up toting something you don’t like, just ditch it before picture time.

Do half up hair.

Make like Kate Middleton (and nix strand stress) but pulling your mane half up. You’ll get your bangs outta your face, it feels a bit fancy (if you use sparkly bobby pins) and you won’t have a pin-loaded helmet head. Hurrah!
