"This feels like a lifetime ago! Thankfully I went for classic hair and makeup, so I don’t have any regrets about that. And, in fact, I still have this dress. It’s a deep navy raw silk Ralph Lauren gown with a bright emerald lining. I’ll never wear it again, but I love it too much to give it away.

A Prom-Inspired Makeup Tutorial: Birchbox Intern Diaries

We’ve been taking a walk down memory lane here in the Birchbox office, recalling the best and worst looks from that momentous event—Prom. So for the latest installment of Birchbox Intern Diaries, I decided to recreate the makeup I wore for that special high school night. Instead of doing a smoky eye with silver shimmer (it was so popular back then), I updated the look with a pretty pop of lavender and added a bit of drama. Watch the video above to see how to get this spring-ready style that’s perfect for The Big Dance.

And before you go, tell us all about the look you’ll be wearing to prom (or the look you wore) in the comments below!

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that young women have been wearing particularly risqué dresses to prom and because of that, school administrations across the country have started cracking down with serious dress codes, using PowerPoint presentations to make it clear what’s appropriate—and, more significantly, what isn’t.

Prom season is right around the corner, and here at Birchbox we’ve been reminiscing about our own prom experiences. The consensus? We’ll always laugh about the semi-regrettable styling decisions we made as teens: the streaky self-tans, the crunchy curls, and (most memorably) the pouffy princess dresses that wouldn’t look out of place on Toddlers & Tiaras
