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!

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!
