For this month’s makeup look, I wanted to share how I did my makeup in high school and create an updated version.
During high school, I had two different makeup styles: everyday and for photos. My everyday makeup consisted of concealer, powder foundation, under eye liner and a gloss or balm. For photos, my makeup was a more dramatic version of my everyday makeup, and I often used dark eyeshadow shades and a lip color that matched my look. For my look today, I based it on this photo from 2012 (the year I graduated from high school).
I used the same base as my everyday makeup in high school. In high school, I also started experimenting with blush along with highlighting so I used a little bit of highlighter on my cheeks and nose. I kept the dark eyeshadow look and instead of using eyeliner, I used eyeshadow underneath my eyes. Also, I opted to use a matching lipstick, and the JSC Soul Sucker liquid lipstick from the Halloween mystery box was a perfect match. However, the lipstick itself is patchy and requires multiple layers, so if you do not have the lipstick, I do not recommend purchasing it from resellers. I hope you enjoyed this throwback to how I did my makeup in high school and my updated version of my makeup from then.
