The anti-prom look

Prom for the rebel

Does the thought of a big poofy dress and squeezing your tootsies into stilettos make you want to hurl? Well, maybe the traditional prom look isn’t for you, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun. Instead, embrace your anti-prom style.

Prom for the rebelKeep it natural

If you don't usually wear makeup, getting a makeover or doing it yourself can seem like a daunting task for the evening. Instead of going overboard and gobbing it on, go for a natural look. A swipe of tinted lipgloss and some mascara is sometimes all a girl really needs. If you're in doubt, make an appointment at your department store's beauty counter for a makeover. They're usually complimentary when you purchase something and the beauty whizzes can show you a new look that isn't overly girly.
