I know this site is called "Girls Ask Guys", but I'm asking girls. : P
My friend and I are going to this alumni party for our high school. We have known the people who will be attending this party since elementary school, and we were teased mercilessly for many years by them.
Basically, we want to show up to this party looking awesome. The problem is, neither of us are very good at the hair, makeup, and fashion thing. We need advice.
This photo is completely natural, no makeup or anything.

Girl 1: I first want to say I have the same bright yellow tank top! Sorry, that made me wayy too excited. Anyway, have you thought about getting a haircut? Maybe reinvent yourself by getting some highlights and dramatic side-swipe bangs, or you could even dye your hair a completely different color. Maybe a lighter brown? If you don't want to color, I highly suggest some type of bangs. I love having bangs, and I think they really add something and kind of draw attention to your face more.
As for make up, I really don't wear it often. For special occasions, which this sounds like, I wear foundation(be careful not to cake it on, which took me years to learn), cover up on pimples or red spots that may still be visible, maybe a little color on lips, and eye shadow. For the eyes I recommend watching youtube videos by some of the popular makeup artists. Don't do anything you aren't comfortable with doing, though. I personally like buying the four eyeshadow pallets that help guide you, but I put a slight twist on it. For example, I often put the brightest color of the pallet in a triangle shape on the outer part of my lid.
Girl 2: Again, I start with the hair. I think straight edge bangs would be great with your face shape(IDK what's my thing with bangs) and if you want you can also dye your hair a light brown or bleach it. Honestly though, your hair color is great with your skin tone.
For your make up, I'd do a lot of the same things as girl 1 but add mascara. You're eyes seem a lot like mine, where you don't see the eye shadow well, so you may try a bold lipstick color. A bright red would look great with your skin tone.
For both of you I'd say staighten your hair for the party(which is my personal go to hair style). I know people may not like my suggestions, or that it's not as bold as your going for, but I don't mind throwing my ideas out there. Best of luck!0
