As a student back in Greece, the library during the exam season was the place to see and to be seen. Each morning I would spend at least 30 min to apply my makeup and pick the perfect outfit. Years later my makeup routine for the long hours of study in the library hasn’t changed much, for functionality reasons this time.
I admit that when I feel nervous, unconsciously I keep touching my face and bite my nails. An extremely bad habit I know, can’t help it. Makeup and nail polish is a way to shield myself. In my big bag, you’ll find as well in addition to water, the L’occitane hand cream and the Advanced Repair Eye Serum from Estee Lauder. I prefer to reapply the serum a couple of times during the day as the area around my eyes gets very dry. An Eos lip balm is in there as well to reapply several times in order to avoid lip biting. My hair is either styled in soft waves or straight with Diamond Flat Iron from Irresistible Me.
…and if you guys are still with me and don’t consider me paranoid by now I will ago ahead and talk about chunky sweaters to keep warm during these long hours of static sitting. I love a good, warm sweaters like the only I’m wearing from S. Oliver (last’s year collection) and the one from Topshop. The jeans, as well as the rest of the outfit, have to be comfortable, switching from crossed-legged or one leg folded is my only exercise for several hours.
Comfort, no distraction, all basic needs covered. I need to get going now…
Have a great day!
