I miss college. My four years in college is what I can consider as the best four years of my studying life. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed highschool (as some would say it's what they miss more) but it was in college that I was able to figure out who I really am. In college, I met new friends, who may all be very different in many awesome and crazy ways, but compliments my personality well. It was, also, in college that I was able to understand what it is that I would like to do with my life.
Even though I went to an ex-all girls' university for my college degree, I wasn't able to fully embrace the concept of putting makeup on although most of my classmates do use makeup. But, if ever, I'd be given a chance to relive my college days, with my current love for putting makeup on, this is the makeup look that I'd, probably, have most of the time.
FACE: Ever Bilena Makeup Foundation with UVA Protection in Oriental | ELF Studio Pressed Powder in Almond | NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush in West Side Wine
EYES: Ever Bilena Eyebrow Pencil in Brown | SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Water Terra Cotta | SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Warm Copper Fire | SanSan Gel Eyeliner in Brown | SanSan Kohl Eyeliner in Black | Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black
LIPS: Crazy Rumors Lip Balm in Peppermint Twist | Snoe Rouge Deluxe Lipstick in Precious Pout
HOW I DID IT:
I started off with applying the foundation, using my fingers, all over my face in dots and blending it still using my trusted fingers. I, then, used a few more and added a few dots of foundation on my under eye area to, subtly, hide my dark under eye. Then, I topped and set the foundation with the ELF Studio Pressed Powder in Almond and brushed a subtle blush using my NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush in West Side Wine.
For the eyes, I started off with filling in my brows first and then proceeding to the eye color. Remember, this is a good-for-school makeup look so we don't need to be all colorful and overly done. I used the SanSan CYO Eyeshadow in Water Terra Cotta all over my lids and the for my crease area. I tried to make the eye makeup very because you won't need and it will be inappropriate to wear a too-heavy eye makeup look at school. Keep it simple, light and young. After that, I used the SanSan Gel Eyeliner in Brown for my upper lid, the SanSan Kohl Eyeliner in Black on my waterline, but only a quarter of it so as not to look too dark but more of to make your eyes pop out a bit, and, after curling my lashes, I used the Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black.
For the lips, I opted for a touch of subtle pink by applying the Crazy Rumors Lip Balm in Peppermint Twist first to keep it moisturized and the Snoe Rouge Deluxe Lipstick in Precious Pout for the simple and youthful touch of pink on the lips.
