I'm going to prom in May and I normally wear makeup normally to school, but I want to go all out for prom. I work at a pharmacy, so I usually just buy drugstore brands like Physicians Formula, Maybeline, and Revlon. I was thinking of spending some extra money on a good foundation and mascara, but don't know what products to buy. I want to have a light coverage foundation, because I like my freckles, but I also want to cover up dark spots and the occasional zit. I'm looking for a lengthening mascara and was even thinking about false eyelasheshes for the big night. Do you have any idea what products I should be buying? Make Me Hot Hattie
Dear Make Me Hot Hattie
Clinique is a fantastic line for young women. Another reason why I think it would be great for you is because they also have a product specifically to fight and cover under eye circles and they have excellent mascara. There products are created for sensitive skin, and they don't clog pores (which is a common problem among teens and young adults). Clinique is priced well and they are a step up from drugstore brand quality. They've come a long way since my Prom - but that's what I wore! For false eyelashes, you've got to try Scott Barnes. This is what J.LO wears! They look natural and you'll have them for a long time. There are 2 choices, Mon Cheri or The Marissa. Scott's line is only sold at Saks right now, so if you aren't close to one, you can buy the lashes online.
