Prom: peace, purity and beauty too.
The prom season is raging among hormones and the recession.
The average prom night-yes-night, as in one time event of the year can cost about $790.00.
Before I give you the beauty look, tips and hottest products, let me start with what is really beautiful.
What makes a prom girl really beautiful is purity. I mean this kind:
4That each one of you should know how to [c]possess (control, manage) his own [d]body in consecration (purity, separated from things profane) and honor,
5Not [to be used] in the passion of lust like the heathen, who are ignorant of the true God and have no knowledge of His will,
6That no man transgress and overreach his brother and defraud him in this matter or defraud his brother in business. For the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we have already warned you solemnly and [e]told you plainly.
7For God has not called us to impurity but to consecration [to dedicate ourselves to the most thorough purity].
8Therefore whoever disregards (sets aside and rejects this) disregards not man but God, Whose [very] Spirit [Whom] He gives to you is holy (chaste, pure).
9But concerning brotherly love [for all other Christians], you have no need to have anyone write you, for you yourselves have been [personally] taught by God to love one another.
Words like chaste, chastity, and virginal should come to mind after reading the above passage. Because nobody wants pre-chewed gum, worn underwear or used toilet paper, so why would your mate for life want a “used” partner?
Sex was made for marriage not the local Holiday Inn or back seat of a stretch Hummer limousine.
When I think of prom beauty, I think purity and the peace of mind for young girls self and her parents that a firm, decisive commitment to purity not peer pressure can bring to the night.
So with the prom purity in mind, I recommend picking a hair and makeup theme to compliment your dress and dance theme.
Lately, I’ve really bee n into retro 1940’s style looks. This means false eyelashes and matte red lipstick with a powder dusted skin. Hair would be up in curls and omelet fold styles secured with bobby pins and accented with a flower.
For your fake lashes: get Ardell in a medium length from your local drugstore, line your eyes first and then apply the lashes.
My favorite matte red is Explore by Lorac. It was created by Lorac owner and artist Carol Shaw for Nicole Kidman’s character Satine in the movie Moulin Rouge. It’s gorgeous and wears very well in color and slip on the mouth.
Or, if classic glamour isn’t for you, try a fresh pixie dewy look by using the Physicians Formula Organic line. Use an eye shadow brush to apply the bulk of the shimmer shadows in the center of the eye blending the color thinner in the corners, only line the bottom in a bold color of purple or green, and carry over the dusting of the glitter to your arms and shoulders.
Some new products to try: mark HookUps gel blush, the Secret Hawaiian scented anti-persperants for staying dry and odor free, Clinique almost there lipstick for moist lips that are barely colored, and the eye glosses by Jane Iredale.

A short note of what not to do: try to look like the super glam Pam seen on the cover of Playboy magazine. Remember, Jenna Jameson is not a role model.
A young man wants to introduce a lady who is honorable and respectful to his parents and peers.
As for Miley Cyrus and the Vanity Fair photos, let’s forgive her and move on. Prayer and forgiveness covers a multitude of sins.
Enjoy your pure, peace filled prom night!
