ASU women talk makeup: style and inspiration

By Jenzi Langley

Strolling through the Downtown ASU campus, one can’t help but take note of the unique and diverse scene. Whether it’s the sleepy-eyed night owls trudging into class, or the smartly-dressed students prepped for their big presentation, a whole spectrum of different people mulling about the campus exists.

This month, I got the privilege to take a closer look into the individual style of many of the young women whom I walk by every day. With an emphasis on make-up, these ladies opened up to talk a little bit about themselves and their passions. It is now my pleasure to share with you these amazing ladies and their fashionable makeup sense.

A: Freshman

Q: What is your major?

Q: What inspired this particular look?

A: I really like the witchy vibe of this dress so I love pairing it with my grey lipstick!
