The Perfect Prom Checklist

May 27, 2022

With prom getting closer and closer every day, we’re sure you’ve spent the past few months preparing for the special night and just can’t wait for it to start! To make sure you won’t miss a beat, here’s your ultimate checklist for the perfect prom:

In Your Purse


Touch-Up Makeup



To ensure your makeup stays flawless until you make it back home, you’ll want to have a few products handy to touch-up throughout the night. Your favorite lipstick, mascara, and a travel-sized setting spray or refreshing facial mist will keep your glam intact, and won’t take up too much space in your purse. 






In the midst of an ongoing pandemic, many schools require face masks for large formal events to prevent the spread of disease. You don’t want to get sick at prom or risk not being allowed in, so make sure you remember your mask. Pro tip: find one that matches your dress! 



Emergency Toiletries



You never know which unexpected circumstances may be thrown your way during prom night, and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. To prevent chaos if you get a surprise appearance from your monthly cycle, a headache, or a minor injury, we recommend that you bring menstrual products, over-the-counter pain relievers, and a few bandaids along for the ride. Even if you don’t end up needing them, one of your besties might!

In Your Look





First things first, the most important part of your prom look is your dress! Shop around at local boutiques to find a gorgeous gown that you feel incredible in and is true to your personal style. If you’re looking for something flirty, totally trendsetting, and unique, prom dresses by Colette will have you swooning.






Accessories bring your perfect dress to life. When you’re picking yours out, ask yourself what role you’re wanting them to play at prom: do you want your jewelry to make a stand out, or are you looking for just subtle pops of glimmer? Whether you go for bold, statement-making gems or delicate, minimalist pieces, you’ll definitely want some special accessories to elevate your look.




After you have fallen in love with your dress and selected the perfect accessories to match, the key to really pulling your prom look together is a fresh mani-pedi. While this may just be a minor detail, the polished look of recently pampered nails truly makes all the difference.
