BEAUTY BAR: Glittery Golden Accents

As college students transition into the new year, they may have certain academic and personal resolutions for 2016. They may want to raise their GPA, devote time to internships, eat healthier, or become more confident with themselves. For style-conscious students, these resolutions are true; however, they have an added goal of either developing a new style or beauty routine.

All Fashionistas have once struggled with finding a beauty routine that they are comfortable with. We have all experimented with bright eyeshadow hues and daring lipstick tones that simply do not complement our complexions. We may look back at when we began to wear makeup and ask ourselves why and how we even thought of pairing turquoise eyeshadow with orange lips. For 2016, we can promise ourselves that we will experiment with neutral palettes that are guaranteed to bring out our best features and natural beauty.

This Fashionista perfectly plays with soft tones on her eyes that work well with her dark eye color and light skin tone. Using a variety of products that compliment her complexion, she focuses on making a statement with her eyeshadow and lip color. Using Urban Decay’s Naked Eyeshadow Palette, she creates golden smokey eyes. On her lips, she sports pink lip gloss with a coating of clear glitter lip gloss to make a gorgeous beauty resolution for 2016. The neutral colors on her eyes allow for the Fashionista to rock feminine glitter lips that are a festive and fun look to ring in the new year. To finish her look, this Fashionista wears a flannel, ripped denim and studded, black, riding boots.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? For a quick and easy beauty routine that you can rely on, invest in a long-lasting eyeshadow palette and eyeshadow primer. You don’t want to worry about your eyeshadow smudging or fading throughout your busy day. To bring out all assets, make sure to include a matching foundation and complementary blush and lip color to make statement.
