School is in session, which means there’s more time studying and sleeping and less time getting ready. Props to those who can study and sleep efficiently and are able to look good each day. I, for one, try to study as much as I can, sleep until I’m annoyed of snoozing my alarm, and rush to get ready in the morning. What matters to me is getting to my classes on time, whether I look like a hot mess or not. On the bright side, there are days where I’m able to take some time choosing what outfit to wear or what kind of makeup look I want to go for. Those are the best days.
As I was walking to leave campus the other day, I noticed this Fashionista’s long, healthy hair. Then, as I was talking to her, I noticed her makeup looked so on point! She told me it only took her 15 to 20 minutes to choose her outfit, do her makeup and hair, and walk out the door. I was pretty amazed. She told me for her hair, she doesn’t use heat. She just combs through her hair using her Wet Brush. As for makeup, she used the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation, e.l.f. Cosmetics Instant Light Brow Pencil, NYX Two Timer Eyeliner, and for her lipstick, it was an ultra matte liquid lipstick in the shade “notion” from Colourpop.
Her liner looked so sharp, it could cut me. In all seriousness, I’m sure we can all agree some days, we just have to wing it—whether it’s what outfit to wear that day, your makeup look, eating breakfast, what to do that day, or simply winging your liner. School can be stressful, but it is important to stay calm, prioritize, and feel confident in whatever you decide to wear.
