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!

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.

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.

A Pop of Red

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.

If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.

Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.

Hello. Just call me Carrots if you don't know me already. :p Anyway, I'm hoping I'll be able to make a little forum post on making friends and making sure the friendships last. ^-^ ••• I hope this helps. ••• Making friends// Making friends can be dauntless, especially if you moved schools or to a different place which is simply far away from your old friends. I mean, it's fine to keep in contact with your old friends ##-####, text, letters etc), but you do have to consider it'll be better if you can make more friends at your new location- seriously, it'll help! How to make friends// • Get talking with people- join in people's conversations; try to be a little more social- it'll be easier to make friends if you're social around people. • Have a look around- are there any clubs or events that catch your interest- maybe a drama class or art club? If you join these type of things, you're more likely to meet people who have similar interests to you. :3 • Do act yourself. That means not to be so loud that people take you in the wrong way- but don't be too quiet either- otherwise people won't notice you! • Pay attention to people when they're speaking- they'll appreciate it if you just listen to what they say and you can have your say too! • Hang out with one or two people that you already know- who knows, you might be introduced to their friends too. • Do make an effort! c: [posting more tomorrow- I'm sorry that this is absolutely terrible]
