It’s prom time, so let’s talk about hair and makeup! If there’s one thing I (Jessy the Librarian) love as much as stories, it’s probably lipstick. Or maybe eyeliner. One of the best place I’ve found for (non-video) makeup/hair tutorials is The Beauty Department. I love the idea of taking this studded eyeliner but using crystals and liner in different colors. This is definitely the sort of thing I would run a trial on first. Test out creating the look, then have a backyard dance party or just jump around a lot—make sure those crystals stay put! When it comes to pretty hair, my own personal taste is basically “shove it all up behind your head in a messy chignon or at the nape of your neck in a messy bun with lots of pretty bobby pins." But this isn’t a blog about what Jessy the Librarian would dress up like; it’s full of tips and tricks and DIYs for all sorts of tastes! If you have straight hair (or want to straighten your hair for prom), Martha Stewart has lots of guides. If you have curly hair, there are guides for pretty updos here and here.
