    Wear a small amount of makeup. This doesn't mean cake it on your skin, just because you have a few pimples. Some foundation, blush, and a little eye shadow never hurts anyone.

    Pick out some nice clothes. If your wardrobe smells, and your clothes aren't as nice as you would like, ask your mom or dad to take you shopping. Or save up some money (birthday money, do some yard work), and then go shopping with a friend. If you can't afford some of the clothes, buy the knock off brands.
