    Eat healthy. This is an important step in making your body, mind and self better. By eating more vegetables, fruits and protein you are going to feel more energetic, your skin will clear up and you will feel better about the way you look. It's not about depriving yourself so that you are stick skinny, but it's about cleaning yourself out of those processed foods.

    Get into shape. Take the time to hit the gym or go for a run. Again, it's not about being thin, so much as it is about feeling good about yourself. The endorphins you get from working out can make you more productive and happier. There are so many ways these days to get fit. Many people go running every day. Some people do workout videos. Some people go to the gym. Others use fitness games, hand weights, run up and down the stairs, hike, or just dance around the house. All of these will improve your stamina and will give you a pep to your step that is going to be noticeable. Also, working out will make your skin glow, your clothes fit better and will make you overall happier with your body.

    Take care of your skin. Cleanse your face every night and exfoliate once a week to be spot free and have a soft and smooth face. Some notable brands for face care are Clean and Clear, Proactive, and Clearasil. Always use lotions to keep your skin hydrated and apply these after hot showers or before bed in vulnerable areas like elbows, knees, and feet. Use sunless tanner or lotion to get a glow to your skin without all of the harmful effects of tanning.

Part 2
Get The Look Right

    Flatter your body. One of the most sought after shapes is the hourglass! Try to mirror this look by cinching your waist and adding layers to your hips and bust. You can also choose just to work with your body shape and find the clothes that best fit you. Get clothing pieces tailored so that they fit you properly. A good fit will make all the difference, especially in something like jeans that you wear everyday.

    Always look put together. This means before you leave the house make sure that you look well enough that you would happily run into your crush. If you feel like you look too casual, too messy or not cute, run back into your house and add some mascara, redo your hair or pick a different outfit. Having the whole look is what is going to make you the prettiest girl in school.

    Switch up how you wear your hair. Always wear your hair in new ways, this will draw attention to you in a positive way. Try different braids, buns, and curly/straight styles to mix up your look. By adding accessories, people will start to appreciate how much effort you put into your look and start asking you for tips!

    Spend time doing your make up. To look beautiful, create big, bright eyes and plump lips. These are two features that both men and women respond to well. Put on your lipstick using a brush to give yourself more control around the edges and to create a plump lip. Then apply highlighter powder under and around the eyes. Use a white liner on the bottom inner rim of your eye and then a dark color to line the lash line on top to create a larger eye. Always use neutral eye shadows over bold colors as these will open the eye and leave you looking natural pretty. When adding blush, you want to create a soft look on your face, so never use harsh blushes or bronzers as those also don't look natural.

    Take care of your nails. Always have them cut, shaped, and buffed. If you can keep up the maintenance, try painting them fun and bold colors. This will make you look more put together. It's the little details like these that people notice.
  6. Image titled Be the Prettiest Girl in School Step 9
    Complement your ensemble the right way. Try adding hair accessories, belts, jewelry, and bags to your outfit to create a complete look. Never overdo it. One watch, one belt or one headband are all statement pieces and don't need much more to go with them.
    • Instead of a book bag, carry a purse. This will make you look more fashionable and help you stand out. Have a variety of bags so that you aren't always using the same ones.

Part 3
Have the Right Attitude

    Don’t be cruel. While Regina George makes it look glamorous, being mean to other girls does not make you look prettier. Most girls will gravitate and look up to girls who are nice to everyone. So, instead of hurting people's feelings, make them feel good about themselves. They will have a more positive image of you that way!
  2. Image titled Be the Prettiest Girl in School Step 11
    Be confident and exude confidence. Always be sure of who you are and don't let people change you. The best way to show that you are the prettiest girl in school is to never change who you are. Besides, why should you need to? You will look prettier if you also look confident. The best way to do this is to walk with a straight posture and a slight sway on your hips.

    Take the time to do the little things for people. This goes a long way when it comes to getting people to like you. By taking the time to compliment someone or help someone out, they are going to, in turn, have a higher opinion of you. This will make the difference when it comes to being "just pretty" and being the pretty girl everyone likes to be around.

  • If you want to be the prettiest girl in school do not have an attitude.
  • Don't just be pretty. Study. Be smart. Now who do you want to be: smart and pretty or dumb and pretty?
  • Take showers every day. No one wants to be smelly! You don't need to wash your hair every single day.
  • Be who your are. Don't try to be like another person.
  • Don't always try to fit in. It's better to just to show your true self. Don't try to change your personality or appearance for anyone. Always play it confident because being confident is so attractive to guys and girls.

  • Never mind if someone tells you are ugly remember we are fearfully and wonderfully made.
  • Be happy with who you are! You can never be better than your best, the most important competition in life is no one but yourself.
  • Always be a few steps ahead, like a day before school figure out what clothes you're going to wear, what hairstyle, and makeup, etcetera. This helps you stay organized, and can lower stress. This helps you get better sleep, so you will look and feel better.
  • Find your own personality. Pretending to be someone you are not is not only a lie to others. Be yourself, Have your own morals and accept that we are all different in our own ways.
  • Just try to be yourself. You are an original, don't die a copy.
  • Be yourself and be unique. It's the real way to be pretty both outside and inside.
  • Don't worry about skin blemishes, etc. You probably pay much more attention to your flaws than others -- you're often your own worst critic!
  • You should wear only light makeup, as heavy makeup may cause your skin to lose its natural healthiness. Eat healthy at right time, and eat things such as fruit. Drink at least 7-8 glasses water a day, and do exercises regularly. Feel the magic; you will get naturally beautiful, so there's no need to use makeup. Keep smiling and be happy!

  • When in the shower, switch the water from warm to cold when rinsing your hair. This is good for your hair and skin, and your immune system as well.
  • Be yourself. People like the way you are only if you be yourself. Your friends and family like when you be yourself.
  • Just be yourself. The more that you be yourself, the more you will stand out and look more and more prettier on the inside, and yes, of course the outside.
  • Be you and dress to impress.
  • Plan hairstyles for the upcoming week, but try to avoid using heat. Frazzled hair does not look good.


  • Don't try to become/look like someone else, because even if it gets you the hottest guy in school, he won't really be liking "you", now, will he?
  • Don't cake your face in makeup. Also, make sure you have the right color foundation/concealer/powder.
  • Don't look the same as everyone else or you'll just blend in with the crowd; try tweaking things to make yourself different.
  • Never show off. If you do, it will be considered childish behavior and you will end up being disliked by many.
  • Don't become someone you don't want to be.
  • You may find this hard to believe, but you may intimidate some people. Contrary to popular belief, bullies target people they deem to be a threat. If this happens, stand up for yourself (and others) and resolve the issue calmly, with class. Do not joke with the bully if you are considerably hurt. You don't want to encourage bystanders to laugh along; they're just as scared of being targeted. But the harassment will stop once you get your peers to turn against the bully's inappropriate behavior.
