Should I wear makeup on my first day of college?

the college I am going to is just a community college, so it's not that big. However, do you think it would make a good, first impression looking polished? or should i just go all natural, making me stand out and be known as the girl who isn't afraid to be makeup free? the only reason I was thinking that I should wear makeup, because knowing Ill be super anxious for my first days (with my mild social anxiety and all) foundation will help cover my red cheeks when i invevitably start blushing lol

  • Avoid the makeup so then you can suddenly look better at a certain point.

  • Your teachers will not care or notice and I doubt the people around you will either. Everyone is meeting so many new people that everyone will blur together.

  • I personally would vote against it, because it is very easy to tip past the balance and instead of looking like you care about your appearance, you can seem desperate and/or fake. That, and people won't really know what you normally look like, which is just weird. Of course, it is up to you, but if I were female, I would avoid mascara and lipstick and eye-shadow for the occasion.

  • Maybe a little light make up will make you feel comfortable -Though judging from your profile pic you could totally rock no make up

  • I wouldn't worry. It isn't like school. The people there are there to learn (for the most part) and so the social aspect is a side issue. However I would not go in looking like you've made no effort. smart-casual with maybe a bit of lippy.

  • Do whatever makes you feel confident, I dunno.

    After a couple weeks, no one is gonna care anymore, really.

    If I were a girl, however, I'd just go as a casual Jane Doe and sprinkle myself with make up on days I felt like being more... polished, as you say.

    • lol I ain't going to lie (kinda haha), I wouldn't mind the attention. as long its positive and respectful.

    • hahaha sure, if you really want to. and I guess so, but you would never catch me wearing lipstick alone... that makes the look incomplete. Plus, I would never wear lipstick to class unless its on the natural look side. a tinted lip balm would suffice.

    • I thought the color of ur lips made up half of ur looks '-'
      So its true right? Do y'all juz wear dem SMEXY red lipstix for fun or is it a sign of single and rdy to mingle? 😋

  • I hate makeup so in my opinion its not a good idea...

  • I hardly talked to anyone in CC. It's not like high school. Everyone just minds themselves.

    • yeah, thats what I've heard too. I know it's not like a regular ol' university, so I shouldn't have any high expectations.
