Beauty: Prom Makeup 2010

Prom is almost here! After spending loads of time picking out the perfect dress, accessories, shoes and hair style – it's important that you don't forget about getting your makeup just right for the big night!


Princess Protection ProgramProm Beauty

You don't need to pile on so much makeup that you're unrecognizable, but you do want to change your look and make it a bit more special than the everyday. It's prom after all!


This can be as simple as putting on some bright pink lipstick, making your eye makeup look smoky or even adding some false eyelashes just for the night. We recommend Ardell false lashes, you can get them from the drugstore and they're both affordable and look great (we've tried them!).


The best way to approach prom makeup is to pick out one feature you want to make stand out and focus on that. Don't do BOTH a smoky eye and red lipstick. Focusing on just one feature makes it stand out more and looks way more chic and stylish!

Here are some of our favourite looks for prom!

Think Pink

Scarlett JohanssonScarlett Johansson

The combination of pink cheeks and lips is a great look for that fresh and healthy, just-been-out-in-the-cold look.

Joe Fresh Beauty Cream lipstick in Strawberry, $6

Rimmel Blush in Santa Rose, $6.49


The New Smoky Eye
Taylor MomsenTaylor Momsen

A softer smoky eye is the key to this look. Dark brown eyeliner and a medium dark eyeshadow in shades of gunmetal grey, or even purple) are all softer than using just eye makeup. If you prefer a heavier smoky eye, use smudgy black kohl eyeliner and shadow.

Rimmel Colour Rush Eyeshadow Quad in Smoky Brown, $6.49

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black, $11.99


A Pop of Red

Selena GomezSelena Gomez

Red lips have always been a striking look for evening. Just a pop of red lipstick is all you need. Tinted moisturizer to smooth out the skin as a base for the bright lip colour is also recommended.


Maybelline lipstick, Almay FoundationMaybelline lipstick, Almay Foundation

Maybelline lipstick in Are You Red-dy?, $9.99

Almay Truly Lasting Colour Makeup, $16.99


Peachy keen

Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus

This sun-kissed look is perfect for warmer weather – peachy lips and cheeks flatter most skin tones and hair colours and manages to look both soft and natural.

Hiya. My cousin is getting married next Wednesday! The only thing is I really don't want to go. This may sound disrespectful and/or rude, but I don't really get along with his fiancé. I can't talk to her properly (incredibly stiff and hard to talk to her) and I don't think she likes me that much. Also, I'm kinda (largely) unsocial in big groups, and the fiancé apparently has a giant family coming. -.- Also, my dog -which we brought home a few months ago- hasn't had proper vaccinations (we found out she was slightly neglected and had matts everywhere. It must've been so painful) and can't get her into a kennel place (Kennel cough) or dog sitting service on such short notice. My mum will probably be staying home with her and dad and sister is going. But mum can't really say "I have to look after the dog" because they'll find it disrespectful and my cousin and his fiancé doesn't really like my at home family. The last resort is to make a excuse (but my mum doesn't really want to lie) and I'd like to make the excuse of I'm ill and mum needs to take care if me. If I have to go, does anyone have tips for going to a wedding you don't want to go to. sorry for long post,

This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!
