For many of you, prom is JUST around the corner! Since this is one of the most memorable nights of your life, you want to make sure you remember to pack all the essentials! Here’s a list to get you started:

Touch-up makeup: When you’re dancing the night away, your makeup is bound to take one for the team. Pack a compact of translucent powder, bronzer, eyeliner (since your liner could smudge easily) and a lipstain. Lipstains are great since you don’t have to pay as much attention to them! Lipsticks or lip glosses require regular application throughout the night.  If you’re wearing fake lashes, pack some extra glue just in case! If you don’t think this will all fit in your clutch, translucent powder should be your number one option! OR try blotting papers like The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil Blotting Tissues!

Gum or mints: With music blasting, chances are you’ll be talking loudly (and closely) to your date and your friends… fresh breath is vital.

Mini deodorant and/or perfume: Try hitting up your local drugstore to find mini versions of your regular toiletries. The last thing you want is to feel uncomfortable without any extra deodorant!

If you’re wearing fake lashes, pack some extra glue just in case!

Your phone: You’re going to want to document this night! Make sure you have enough memory on your phone to take as many pics as you want. Last thing you want to be doing is playing eenie meenie minnie moe with what app to delete on the dancefloor.

Bobby Pins: They hardly take up any space, and will save your hair after doing the Soulja-Boy Crank That dance for the trillienth time that night.

So there you have it – these are the ESSENTIALS to pack in your clutch! Have fun, and be safe at prom, and feel prepared for one of the best nights of your life!
