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

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)

Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D
