The perfect holiday look Pt. 2: makeup

The Ultimate Holiday Lookbook

Once the outfit is picked out, it is time to get to the beauty aspect. While most people switch straight to makeup, it's important to take a couple steps before applying your makeup.

First things first, treat your skin! Masks are your friends! The night before a party, treat your self to a mask. There are face masks out there for every skin type out there. Whether you have dry, dull, oily, sensitive, or acne prone skin, there is a mask out there that is guaranteed to treat your skin! The night before an event I recommend a revitalizing or illuminating mask. These masks will leave your skin looking refreshed and glowing! Glowing skin always make your makeup look flawless!

After your skin revitalized from the mask, its important to moisturize. While I overlooked this step for awhile, it is vital to smooth makeup application. Especially during these cold winter months, moisturizing will help enhance your makeup game!

Once all the skin care is taken care of, it is time to get to the makeup! During the winter time especially, make sure that you're utilizing a primer. Priming your skin before foundation application will make your skin appear more poreless and flawless.

For the holiday season it is all about the red lips and the sparkly eyes! A classic go to holiday look starts with a red lip. You can never go wrong with a red lip! Especially with a neutral outfit, a red lip can really give it a festive look! Pair your favorite red lip stick with a gold shimmery shadow and some black winged eyeliner. Tada! You have a classic holiday look that is guaranteed to compliment any holiday outfit!

If red lipstick is not your cup of tea, do not worry! Dark matte maroon lipstick is perfect for this time of year! A deep maroon shade pairs beautifully with a shimmery copper shadow on the lid and a matte chocolate brown color in the crease. This nontraditional look is the perfect twist on a classic holiday look!

While the holidays can be a stressful time, they are also a rewarding time! A time to reconnect with friends and family and share some love! Enjoy the craziness of the holidays because they only come around once a year! Happy Holidays and enjoy those holiday parties!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
