2011 Prom Beauty

Prom is the perfect time to experiment with your beauty routine! If you’ve ever wanted to try wearing a bright pink, orange or red lipstick, smoky eyeshadow or a totally bronzed and peachy toned face, a fun night out like prom is a great opportunity to test drive your new look! Go sleek and old school Hollywood glamour with a simple slick of red lipstick, or 1980s fluoro with some neon pink lipstick - who knows, it might even become your new signature look!

Bright Lips

A pop of bright color on your lips is the easiest way to add glamour - just swipe it on and go! With a strong lip like this you don’t need a lot of other makeup - just add a bit of mascara and sparkly nude eyeshadow and you’re ready for prom! Try Brighton Rock pink lipstick by Topshop, $10

The modern girl’s way to wearing color on your eyes - try a bit of purple or bright blue eyeliner. Slightly smudge your line with a q-tip so it doesn’t look too perfect. Keep your lips subdued with some pink or peachy lipgloss! You can even use some bright eyeshadow and and eyeliner brush to make a line! Try LA Splash Metallic Eyeliner in Teal Mania or Ulta Baked Eyeshadow in Drama, $4

Fun Beauty Tips!

  • Put shimmery body lotion on your legs and arms - it’s what the celebs do before they hit the red carpet!
  • Your lipstick can double as a bit of blush in a pinch - just dab a bit on each cheek and blend!
  • Sparkly gold or beige eyeshadow can double as a highlighter - dab a bit on the tops of your cheekbones for a bit of sheen!
  • This spring and summer is all about fun pastel nail colors like lilac, baby blue, mint green and citrus - the perfect warm season palette for your mani or pedi!

Anything that's done repeatedly that bothers you after you've told them to stop is considered as bullying, which is almost a crime and has serious consequences. I'd tell someone if I were you. Doing it once is okay, but doing it more than once after being asked to stop is serious. and also, if you're smart then don't ever complain. Smartness will get you a good future, being cool won't

But if they make you feel like #### then you shouldn't be friends with these people. If it really bothers you then it's a toxic relationship. If you just find in mildly annoying and can deal with it then continue being friends with them. But if it really bothers you and they won't stop even when you ask them to stop then they're not your real friends. You deserve friends that respect you.
