Becoming Prom King and Queen

If you not only want to look like a prom king or queen, but also want to be the king or queen of your prom, then read on to find out what it takes to get the job done!

It's Not Just About Popularity

At one time, prom may have been a big popularity contest where the best-looking guy and girl were crowned king and queen, but things have changed and it's no longer just about who has the most friends and who wears the coolest clothes. Many schools require you to get good grades, participate in extra-curricular activities and be a well-rounded student in order to run for prom royalty. So how can you become a candidate? It's easy - someone has to nominate you and another person has to second that nomination. Then you can start your campaign and run, similar to how people run for class president.

Nice Guys Don't Finish Last

It's great to be pretty and popular, but mean girls aren't going to score any points with the classmates. The same goes for guys! It's important to be genuinely nice (no one likes a fake) and get to know everyone. Don't just hang out with one group of people, like the jocks and cheerleaders or the drama club, but widen your circle of friends. That way, more people will know who you are and give you their vote!

All Eyes on You

Winners of the coveted crown will have a moment to shine in the spotlight as you give your acceptance speech and dance with each other in the middle of the dance floor. Remember to thank all of your classmates and teachers for supporting you!

Honestly, I don't have BFF'S. They all are just my friends, only friends because they are not the person whom I can share anything. They are always fun and joking, chilling types. But, I'd be glad if I find someone who'll understand me. Not all the joking and etc.  :)

Just use a darkish eye-shadow in the creases of your eyelid, and don't use any foundation. No-one will notice that you are wearing makeup and your eyes will appear slightly bigger and more dreamy.  :D

make sure you keep your face clean to prevent acne, I use CLEAR CELL medicated acne lotion which I brought from ###########.#############.###################################-cell-medicated-acne-lotion. Besides that, I use light foundation whenever I go out and kohl for my eyes.
