Changing up my look..[ Edited ]
okay, so when i was in 7th grade i went scene... and then i kinda changed back to girlyish, but kept alot of the scene things i had done...
so anyway... i cut my hair a while back, and now it got to a really cute kinda scene length.. and when i went to camp recently, i noticed while i was hanging with some HAWTTT guys that i stll was pretty scene...
i wanna go scene agian, but i like being girly too!
is there a way to balance both?
and i also dont want to wear TONS of makeup, cuz it looks nasttyyyyyy!
this is what im thinking would look good for my skin color and eyes!
this chick looks alot like me! lol(:
but this is the best pic i hav of me!
but.. one thing i hav noticed is that scene girls are either anorexicly skinny or larger.. and im kinda average, but i have Ds... so like, idk if thats gunna mess it up or somthing):
ps, any ideas on hair or makeup for me?
I say do what YOu want to do and a style you like! I've had blue hair, pink hair, red hair, even red AND purple at the same time. Including the same similar edgy mullety-rock look. The trick is to balance it out with SOFT makeup and fun lipcolors while not making it too crazy intense so you still have a pretty girly edge. No matter what size you are or hair color you are still very pretty and could definitely get away with whatever colors you wish!
If you dye your hair black its a bit more damaging to the hair (as is bleaching) and bright colors definitely take more time to keep up! You can still do a fun edgy cut with the bangs and add some curls to the ends too without even dying your hair. Some fun glittery liner with a smokey eye can never go wrong! Whatever you decide to go with, confidence will be what makes or breaks the look.

Style is what you make it and how you make it your own.
If you want to be Scene and Girly, go for it! There's no rule book that says you can or can't combine the two. If you want to switch it up one day and do a more Scene-heavy/inspired look, then do so, but if the next day you want to tone it down and be girly, then go right ahead!
Just because wearing cute, summery dress might not be "Scene" doesn't mean it's not allowed, and if you're worried that your look might not please everyone to turn the most heads, then you're not being true to you. If you're dressing up soley so you can fit a mold or blend into a crowd then why bother and what's the fun in that? You're not getting dressed in the morning to fit a stereotype of a thin Scene queen or a heavier set Scene queen, you're getting dressed in the morning in what you want because it's what you want! Regardless of whether you're of average size, petite, thin, thick, curvy, with D cups or A cups, wear what you want because it makes you comfortable and because you feel at your best.
Experiment and find a way to put a twist on things to make it your own, the people around you and your peers will be able to recognize and respect that a lot more than if you were to just dress or act a certain way "just because". Combing elements from multiple styles and genres allow for your look to be flexible and allows for you not to be pigeonholed into one look that may or may not cause someone to just give you a glance over. I know that looks aren't everything, but looks sure can make a difference upon initial reactions and impressions, and say in a case where you're around a bunch of guys you think are hot but then somehow feel you being "too Scene" is a turn off for them, then hot or not, they're probably not even worth your time if they can't look past your outer appearance. That's why it's so important to just do what you want to do, if you're you all the time, people you meet will always come across the most genuine you and be able see you all the time rather than just a dressed up shell.
Embrace you and others will too, remember, you don't need to garner approval and love from everyone, because there's no way to please them all, just work at being the best you that you can be, and those special enough to see that will get the same love in return from you naturally! Scene or girly!
If you feel make up looks nasty on you, try consulting with a make up artist or even visiting your local Sephora for a consultation with a beauty rep for a quick lesson for application. Make use of the internet and search up tutorial videos! Practice, practice, practice is key!!!
You've got gorgeous eyes and a really friendly smile, you're a cute girl, plain and simple! If you don't want to use a lot of make up, don't! Try using a tinted moisturizer or BB cream for light coverage and evening out of the skin tone rather than a full on foundation. If you get oily or have a little sheen throughout the day, try a translucent pressed powder.
Play up your eyes with mascara in a curling/lengthening formula to really frame your eyes and make them pop. If you find black eye liner is too harsh, try Urban Decay's Bourbon (warm chocolate brown with a hint of gold shimmer, which compliments blue eyes greatly) 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner. The smooth, creamy formula allow for easy application and allows you to smudge and blend the line to have it look softer and not so hard around the eye. Their shadow sticks and tinted eye shadow primers are also great tools to have on hand. I wear Sin as a primer and use it as a cream eye shadow, great multitasker and cuts down on time on lazy make up days.
If you ever want to play with blush, try Tarte's cheek stains, Tipsy (a coral peach) looks very natural and is soft and would suit your complexion. They are buildable in color so you can wear a little or add more to have more color pay off. They blend out easy compared to liquid stains.
For lips, stick with a sheer gloss rather than lipstick, which can look overdone if you're keeping it very minimalistic. Urban Decay's Lip Love Honey glosses and Lip Junkie glosses are wonderful because the formulas are hydrating, but not tacky to too thick. The Lip Junkie glosses have a range of shimmers, sheers, and more solid colors, while the Lip Love Honey glosses are sheer. Lolita (a bright pink) looks intimidating, but is a very natural, sheer pink tint that enhances your lip color rather than just paint on a shade.
For your hair, I believe in ensuring your hair is properly groomed and conditioned even prior to styling choices. If you plan on dying your hair, let me know, I color hair as well and have a range in experience in many alternative color and brand choices. Using a deep conditioner about once a week restores hair regardless of what condition its in, Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle works great and doesn't break the bank. If you heat style your hair, always make sure to use a thermal protector. For finer to normal hair types, use a spray, for medium to thick hair, use a serum, for coarse or unruly hair, use an oil or cream.
I think you would look super with beachy waves! Something haphazard and real carefree that doesn't require the look to be "picture perfect". A good salt spray (Bumble and Bumble make one, along with dozen of brands and even recipes can be found online to make your own, is a good way to go) applied to damp hair for starters, I like to twist the hair up into a bun or two to enhance curl and shape, allow to dry, take down, shake loose, hand scrunch areas with more spray and finish with a light hairspray. You can also create the look with a curling rod and wrapping 1 inch to 1/1/2 inch sections of hair around the barrel and letting them fall.
