No-Fail Tips to Look Gorgeous on Your Big Prom Night

The weeks before prom are crazy, crazy, crazy & fun. There's nothing better than planning your dress, shoes, makeup & hair. To make things easier, I've compiled the top 5 beauty musts for prom. If you live by these, I guarantee you won't look weird, boring or too much like your regular, everyday self for this year's prom. Have fun!

* Tip #1: If in doubt, mimic a celebrity If you're into Mischa Barton, Nicole Ritchie, Hillary Duff or Jessica Simpson or Jessica's funkier sister, Ashlee, or whomever you love, have fun this prom & mimic your favorite look of theirs. Trying out a celebrity's look is a great idea for prom because changes are a professional makeup artist perfected the look just so you can copy it. Plus, many magazines name the products used on the celebrity so you can even use the exact makeup your fave celeb used.# You can perfect Jessica's smokey eyes (just remember to keep your cheek color natural & use a very light lipstick), go for a sweet & sexy look like Hillary's (don't forget the lipgloss) or try Ashlee's dark-rimmed eyes (these really show off dark hair). Cut out a picture of your favorite celebrity & practice the look before the big night. Once you're at prom, no one but you has to know you're the OTHER Mary-Kate Olsen.

# Tip #2: Pick your eyes OR your mouth The biggest mistake people make when putting on makeup is that they highlight both the eye & the mouth. You need to pick one or the other & downplay what you rejected. How to pick? Simple. What do people compliment you on? Do you have Angelina Jolie's lips or Kate Bosworth's eyes? If you choose to focus on your lips, you'll want to go bright. Red is hot for prom, as are dark pinks. Just stay away from brown (leave it for your grandmother) & make sure you keep your eye makeup soft & simple. For the right way to wear red lipstick check out this article . If you want to play up your eyes, go all out with liner, shadow, mascara & even false eyelashes (the ones that AREN'T obnoxious & outlandish). Just make sure you stick with light lips capped with a light gloss.

# Tip #3: Skip the foundation. Please. No one under age 25 needs foundation. Trust me, you will have plenty of years in your future to spread on that pancake batter. But until you hit 35 or so, you really should skip it. If you have acne or blemishes, stick to a concealer that perfectly matches your face & apply a light powder over it. Powder is also great for calming down a shiny forehead.

# Tip #4: 3 things to remember when taking pictures You'll have those prom pictures for years, so don't forget these 3 things: apply liner & lipstick WITH A MIRROR before you pose; powder your oily areas (forehead, chin & nose) immediately before; & stand a bit sideways with one foot in front of the other -- you'll look 10 pounds thinner. Trust me. It's the red carpet secret celebrities swear by.

# Tip #5: Remember, a happy, fun attitude is your biggest beauty weapon. Who doesn't look beautiful when they're happy & smiling?
