It's as if she never heard of books, either. Bobbi Brown books were my lifesaver.

Gosh, I remember when I received Bobbi Brown's Teenage Beauty Book: Everything You Need to Know to Look Pretty, Natural, Sexy and Awesome as a gift. It was probably in 2000, when I was 18 or 19(*EDIT: I can't math, I was probably 14-15). I loved how natural the makeup applications were and the book itself was pretty empowering and had a very appropriate tone for the audience. It was also the very first time I thought about makeup application beyond: full coverage foundation goes all over face, black liner goes all over eyes, plus 7 coats of drugstore mascara = ta-da!; and I remember it totally was inspiring and fit right in with my Teen Vogue aspirations.

Kind of unrelated, but I guess before YouTube and Instagram we had... books?

Omg I totally forgot about this until just now, but Bobbi Brown had an intro-to-makeup book for teens out when I was younger and it was like the bible for whatever the 90s/00s version of a Glossier girl was. I mean...

> It takes the mystery out of all those confusing rituals so that you can figure out how to feel happier and more relaxed about your looks. You'll look your prettiest!

Tbh I'm a pretty big fan of Glossier, but I like Bobbi Brown as well for a lot of the same reasons - understated packaging, easy to use products (both brands make frequent appearances in my travel makeup bag since they can be applied with my fingers), and obviously the colors and finishes lend themselves towards the natural/"cool girl" look which falls in line with my own aesthetic.

When I was twelve, I typically wore concealer, blush, lip balm or lip gloss, and mascara. Sometimes, I used this little Clinique eye shadow duo with a light pink color and a light brown color. That was about it. I think you're on the right track.

When I got to high school, my mom took me to the Bobbi Brown counter to get my makeup professionally done and bought me this book. That was my Bible for awhile.

This is obviously not for a 6 year old and I'm sure some of the stuff in it is outdated by now, but when I was a tween, my mom got me this book ( and I learned a lot from it. Great photos, emphasis on "natural" beauty, and kind of a self-esteem/be yourself type message.

this one?!

tbh i'm this close to buying a copy as an adult, it's so nostalgic and the looks/advice were honestly pretty great

I would also recommend the book ‘Bobbi Brown: Teenage Beauty’ it is beautifully written for young girls and truly helped me feel more comfortable in my own skin during my pre-teen & teen years.

I'm stealing another redditor's format to make it easier for you to find the useful information in this ramble...haha

DRESS:If you are a small enough size, try looking in the kids'/juniors' section - no joke. My friend only just breaks 5', and she found a really pretty white dress that was a fraction of the price of adult dresses.

Dress shopping is hard :( It's worth finding out about your body type to help narrow your options. When your arms are relaxed at your waist, are your elbows below your natural waist (the smallest circumference of your waist)? If you said yes, then congratulations, you're short-waisted like me and cheap dress shopping will be a bitch because everything cheap is catered to long-waisted women (elbows are above natural waist). If you are short-waisted, for instance, babydoll styles look silly, but empress waistlines/dresses that ruche at the side or wrap around are flattering. If you're long-waisted, I think you can rock a wider variety of styles.

It may be a worth a spin by Ross, Filene's Basement, or the like - often, you can find decent, cheap stuff there.

MAKEUP:For makeup, many people get makeovers from the counters at malls (Bobbi Brown does the most natural-looking jobs). Sometimes these are free, and sometimes they do this with the understanding that you will buy one or two items afterwards. This can cost $30 and up in products, though, so do your research and see who will do it for free. I think the Body Shop does free makeup, although it'll be their mineral-y powerstuffs which don't augment as much as other kinds of makeup would. I, personally, prefer Bobbi Brown because you exit looking like a slightly prettier normal person, and you get some high quality products you can use for the next year (if you wear makeup as infrequently as I do, haha. Actually, I may still have products I bought for prom makeup four years ago).

By the way, Bobbi Brown has some books on beauty that I still refer to - here and here, although this might be most helpful for you if you decide to do your own makeup. The InStyle Secrets of Style books are also like DIY manuals for fashion/style/life in general. You could also check out the blog Already Pretty, although I don't remember if there are many prom-appropriate articles. They do have a lot of confidence-boosting articles, though, and confidence is important for any social event! They also have some stuff on finding the right clothes for your body type, which could help with dress shopping.

EVENT: The event varies from place to place. Mine was a dance in a large hotel hall that came with a seated dinner buffet and dessert buffet. It was chaperoned by teachers. The deejay did a bit of challenging girls vs. boys to dance, but nothing with plastic inflatable goods. He played mostly top 40 songs, and then some songs we had requested (e.g. "Don't Stop Believing" was our prom song). There wasn't a lot of grinding at our school because the clothes were generally too restrictive and the girls were wearing heels, haha. I doubt you'll feel pressured into doing that; some people are totally happy just sitting and talking and eating for the whole time, if those are options for you.

Above all, have a great time! Everyone's nervous, but it is so much fun to see everyone all dolled up - especially the dudes forced into tuxes. Bring a camera and you'll always have something to do :) Best of luck!

You can't tell what you look like because you haven't put any thought into it, apparently, ever. Is pretty something you want? It's ok to answer no. Beauty doesn't have to define you. But if you want it, you'll have to work for it like everybody else.

Diet, watch some makeup tutorials on Youtube, get your hair did, get new glasses, and buy some new clothes - preferably in color. I know it sounds like a lot, but believe me. If you start now, you could have a full dance card a year from now. Even just working on the things you can change immediately (hair, clothes, makeup) will have an enormous effect.

Beauty isn't entirely superficial- at least, the consequences aren't. Attractive people get better jobs with better pay, are judged to be more competent, are judged to be morally better people... the list goes on. It really is a game-changer. I can't explain to you how different, how much easier, it is to be a pretty girl. Everyone takes you more seriously. Everyone wants to be nice to you. People go out of their way for you constantly. It comes with its own set of challenges, but it's quantifiably worth it.

If you have any female friends or relatives, I guarantee at least one of them has been dieing to give you a makeover for years. Let somebody teach you the girl stuff. Also, if you're serious, I can't recommend this book by Bobbi Brown enough. Taught me everything I know.

I just got my BFFs 11year old daughter ( who is not allowed to wear makup at all until 14-15 years old) ,who is obsessed with makeup, the Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty. It covers most of what everyone is saying, including weight and skin care, in a compassionate and sensitive way. It also covers appropriate styles for different ages. My friend's girl sleeps with this book. Obsessed!
