Things Students Say Thursday #1 – Testing!


One of my favorite things that students say to me (on a regular basis) is:

“Mrs. C, you’re wearing makeup!”

Now, this typically happens when I’m wearing something that’s a little more pronounced, like red-tinged lip gloss or one of my chartreuse eyeshadows.  My students are high schoolers, just as an FYI, so we can’t even blame it on their age.  My typical response is, “So-and-so, I wear makeup every day!”  I can talk makeup for hours, and I usually spare my students the full explanation of what I’m sporting on a daily basis, for the sake of instructional minutes.  You, blog readers, aren’t so lucky!  Bwah ha ha!

My Daily Routine (I do not benefit financially from the links below)

  • Primer (currently Smashbox’s Photo Finish)
  • Foundation (currently Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Light)
  • Undereye concealer (currently The Balm’s Time Balm)
  • Eyeshadow primer (Urban Decay’s Primer Potion)
  • Concealer for acne, as needed (TheBalm’s Time Balm Spot Concealer)
  • Oil-absorbing setting powder (Fyrinnae’s Fluff)
  • Setting powder (MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural)
  • Bronzer (I alternate between Estee Lauder, NARS Laguna, CARGO Matte Medium, and TheBalm Bahama Mama)
  • Blush (various TheBalm, MAC, Guerlain, and NARS shades)
  • Highlighter (currently Dior Amber Diamond)
  • 3-4 eyeshadow shades (never any less)
  • Pencil eyeliner (typically Clinique Cream Shapers or UD 24/7s)
  • Mascara (Maybelline Full & Soft is my go-to)
  • Brow Powder (currently e.l.f. Studio)
  • Lipstick or lip gloss (various MAC, CARGO, Lancome, etc)
Nope, not wearing any makeup!  


  • Megan Dub-Yuhsaid

    Ha! I only wear eyeliner and moisturizer. I love when I take my glasses off and the kids tell me "oh, Miss, you are much prettier with them off… you should get contacts." Not really sure if I should take this as a compliment or not.
