Louis made a sign that read "If the shoe fits, makeup your mind." He bought Caitlan makeup from Sephora and Christian Louboutin heels — yes, the teens say, they are real.

It's unclear exactly which shoes Louis bought, but similar-looking heels retail for $675.

Louis told BuzzFeed News he got the idea because Caitlan loves makeup, and he decided to surprise her with the pumps.

Caitlan added that Louis told her he bought the shoes, but she didn't think he was for real.

"I literally screamed..." she said.


Caitlan said she knew she had to share her promposal on Twitter. "I thought it was so cute and creative I had to post it," she said. It soon went viral, because obviously.

The teens are surprised by the reaction to their promposal, but are rolling with it.
