Tweet Have I mentioned that I adore all things prom-related? I do. It was my DREAM to be the beauty editor of a teen magazine… mostly because I wanted to write the hell out of the beauty section in the magazine's PROM ISSUE.
My own prom experiences were pretty faboo. I attended my junior prom with my BF at the time, Bob. The whole situation was very high school-girl-in-suburbia. He was VERY pretty (prettier than I… one of the many reasons we broke up and I have since only been able to stomach very virile dudes) and provided me with a gorge multi-colored corsage that matched my cinderella-at-the-ball blue gown to perfectsh. My fabulous gay friend Ted escorted me to my senior prom where I wore a champagne Jessica McClintock to-die gown and he wore a coordinated champagne vest. We talked massive trash on Bob and his new GF whilst dancing and surprisingly, it turned out to be better than the previous prom.
For each prom, I would allocate, naturally, about 4 hours for Pre-Prom Beautification. There have been some pretty mage developments in makeup since my prom. Since this poll indicated that there are at least a few under 18 gals who are BBJ readers, this post is for them. I've compiled my favorite promtastic products that I only wish were available in 1998.
The Heatherette for M.A.C. Collection just SCREAMS prom to me. I'll admit it: when I first saw photos of the collection online, it looked a little... Planet Unicorn. But upon trying it out for myself, I've identified some key adorably-packaged pieces that when used SEPARATELY are totes promtastic and are just dying to be packed away in your little prom clutch.
Heatherette Lipstick in Melrose Mood is so very Elle Woods pink. I envision it with a sultry smoky eye and a 60s updo. Very diva, girls. VERY diva.
Heatherette Lipglass in Style Minx - the title says it all, doesn't it? This saucy hot pink number provides just enough vanilla-scented shine. I'd pair it with some serious Angelina Jolie-esque winged liner.
I would carry this Heatherette Trio 1 in my purse with me as well - it boasts an absolutely enormous mirror. Your friends will be dying for you to pass it over during the buffet dinner. The shadow trio houses three delectable shades in sparkly pink, turquoise, and blue-flecked dusky black. The last shade would be phenom applied as a vampy liner with some water or some Paula Dorf Transformer, which transforms powder shadow into liquid liner.
