When things finally start to come together; tickets are in hand and your dress is in sight you know that Prom is just around the corner! To ensure your evening goes as planned, we’ve put together a list of must-haves as you begin to pack your clutch for the night.
Mints – Mints are key for a couple different reasons; first of all, staying minty fresh throughout the evening will keep you confident and ready for anything. Second of all, no one wants to be caught chewing away on gum while trying to look their best!
Stain Remover – Even if you’re not the clumsy type, the chances are that at least one of your friends will be running to you on Prom Night if you’re packing one of these little treasures.
Small Brush/Bobby Pins – A lot of the evening events could possibly take place outside, especially photo ops. Keep your look fresh by touching up throughout the night with a quick brush or reinforcement if needed. Travel sized hairspray can also be one of your new best friends if your do tends to stray.
Safety Pins – You never know why or how these little guys will come in handy but you’ll sure be glad you have them if you need them. Toss in at least two safety pins for good measure, they don’t take up much space and they can be a life saver in a pinch.
Deodorant/Perfume – Lucky for us, most beauty essentials come in a convenient on-the-go package. Be sure to pack a mini perfume and deodorant wipes, especially if you plan to be in close quarters with your crush!
Cash/ID/Tickets – You hear a horror story every year about the girl who forgot her ticket to Prom. Pack your wallet with some cash, cards, ID and ticket the evening and go through to double check you have everything you need in the morning.
Makeup Essentials – Ideally, you’d love to pack your entire makeup kit into your clutch, but realistically, that’s not going to happen. Prioritize the key items such as lip gloss, eyeliner and powder.
Phone Charger – If you find you have some space left in your perfectly packed clutch, you may want to consider throwing in your charger. Your phone will be getting a workout throughout the evening and you’re not going to want to miss out on anything!
