Emergency: The Late Date
Solution: Don't panic! Maybe he was just caught in traffic or he had to do something important before picking you up. He'll probably call and tell you he's going to be late for a couple of minutes. Don't harass him! He's probably more stressed that he's late more than you are. Take advantage of the time you have while waiting for him. Check your bag for must-haves or eat something to keep your tummy from grumbling.

Emergency: Makeup Meltdown
Solution: Again, don't panic! If you got your teeth stained with lipstick or your mascara smears below your eyes, get a facial tissue or wet wipes and wipe it gently. Retouch to bring back the fresh look on you. To avoid this emergency, keep yourself in a cool place after having your makeup done.

Emergency: Unexpected Stains
Solution: Accidents happen and stains can be one of the worst that can happen during your prom night. All you have to do is to sprinkle salt over the stain and rub it in. Ask the waiter if the caterers have some lemons to spare. Squirt some lemon juice and rub the spot with ice. Use a cloth to dab the stained area until it's dry. You can also use a stain remover cloth or spray for a quick clean.

Emergency:  Zit Alert
Solution: Don't squeeze it! If you get a zit the night before your prom, mix a crushed aspirin with a bit of water and apply it to your pimple overnight to lessen the redness. You can also use overnight pimple clearing gels for a quick heal. Don't forget to cover your enemy with concealer!
