I’ve developed a small (large) obsession with makeup since I got to Vassar. When I got here and realized I could wear makeup everyday without getting weird stares or beaten up, I decided I had to make up for lost time, so I go pretty all out with colors and glitter on the regular. I’m super into Colourpop because it’s insanely affordable and really good quality… so it gives me the chance to experiment a bunch. Their Supershock and Supernova shadows are must haves (and only like 5 bucks! some staples are “Special Delivery” and “Here we Go Again”. Also, if you’re going for tin-man levels of blinding highlight, I highly recommend loose highlighters (I usually go for a mix of “Glowden” by the Crayon Case and “Moon Tears” by Wet n Wild) , definitely harder to work with but sooo worth it, the glow is insane.
Being creative with my everyday makeup routine has become a huge source of empowerment for me. Especially with how incredible some affordable makeup is this days, I highly recommend experimenting, trying new colors/ finishes/ products, etc. Makeup can be a really cool way to express/ create yourself! so fun!!
