There were some new additions to Kenyon over break. The Middle Path Ice Rink, a Saturday extendo, and a popcorn machine in Peirce? Score. But what some may have not noticed was the beautiful new display in the bookstore of Boots beauty products. Now that you no longer need to improvise, you can finally morph your aesthetic just like you always wanted after only a short walk from your room. Since winter is the time to look your best, here are a few very useful tips on how to do your makeup with these convenient, new supplies.

Before the makeover:

Winter gets everyone down, especially your face.

Product 1: No7 Beautiful Skin “Radiance Exfoliator”

To ensure your face is properly smooth for this beauty regimen, apply a dollop of this cream sent from gods to your face. Scrub as if you were scrubbing small pieces of gold into your skin, and wash. Your face will feel like a baby stuck in a cloud.

Instead of putting snow on your face, try exfoliation!

Product 2: No7 Natural Tint Powder in “Coral Flush”

Blush is totally the kind of makeup that you can never apply too heavily! Lather it on. Over time, you may fool everyone into thinking you have a sunburn from your tropical vacation. Keep going. Do not stop until your entire cheek is the color a sparkly pepto-bismol. Your winter look stops for no one.

Your cheeks should be apples.

Product 3: No7 Twilight Stay Perfect Trio Eye Shadow Palette

Use the black color over your entire lid. You eyes should look like your spirit. Winter is a dark time. Embrace it. Let your eyes mourn for the sun. Sprinkle the silver and white colors on top until you look like the Black Swan. You are drama. Strike a pose.

Product 4: No7 Stayperfect “Raspberry” Lipstick

This is the most important part. Outline your lips much higher than they actually are and fill them in so you look like a schoolgirl who just ate an entire raspberry tree. Tell people you actually drank the blood of your enemies and the lips are proof.

This is glamour. You are ready for Old Kenyon, all the people will want to be you. Vogue.

Now you are ready for your first party of the semester. Don’t forget, neatness is overrated and divas never go halfway.
