BEAUTY BAG: Go Big or Go Home

As fall dwindles down to winter, we see the leaves on the trees slowly turning from vibrant yellow, red and orange colors to a dull, dead brown color. Snow also likes to show up around this time, making your commute to class or work a lot less enjoyable.

This time of year can be really dreary and stressful for a number of reasons. Professors absolutely love to pile on all the homework they can right around Thanksgiving, and they completely forget the fact that finals are right around the corner. On top of that, the weather is just plain awful.

Fortunately for you Fashionistas/os, there’s a solution to escape some of the dreariness and stress of the transitioning seasons. The better you look, the better you’ll feel this season.

This Fashionista brings some lively color to the season with her bold, burgundy lips that match perfectly with her solid colored dress. A coat of mascara also helps to make her brown eyes pop. Her curled, bouncy hair also adds some flair to the look. Finally, she topped it all off with a fedora.

Although her clothes are completely solid colors and lack intricate accessories or patterns, her makeup and hair make up for it by adding a bold, unique effect to the overall look. Radiating confidence and style, she’ll stand out among others on campus. Many college women assume they should only wear heavy lipstick when going out to a party or a fancy event; however, it can be great for the classroom or a casual lunch date, as well.

Applying lipstick only takes a few seconds, but it will add so much definition and power to your look. If you don’t like to spend a lot of time putting on makeup every day, lipstick is the product for you. It’s so simple, but it does so much.

With her bold, vibrant lips and curly, full hair, this Fashionista looks ready to take on whatever college may throw at her. Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with makeup this season. College can really get you caught in a rut sometimes, but this is an excellent way to spice things up.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? The fabulous lipstick used with this look is the Venom shade of Revolution Lipstick by Urban Decay paired with the matching lip liner. Her lashes are coated with Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced.
