Prom Makeup: Punky Purple

Calling something “Rocker Chic” is almost as patronizing as calling something else “Geeky Girl Glam,” but it gets the point across. It’s also much easier than saying “A makeup style drawing heavily from punk subculture, rebellion, anti-authoritarian ideas, and very angry purple.”

So yes, this look is Rocker Chic, and it makes me miss the days when I had violet hair. I once had a terrible boyfriend who hated when I wore purple anything. So here’s to you, jerk! Take your oppressive chauvinistic bourgeoisie bull-poop and shove it!
