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
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.
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.
