Makeup advice for school?

Lately, I've been a bit bored with my usual makeup routine. I usually put on black eyeliner, mascara and minimal coverup because I don't really need it. I have greenish blueish yellow eyes, and an olive skin tone. Nothing fancy because it's for school. Any help?

It would be most appreciated! :)Makeup advice for school?
Try getting a different color eyeliner, like purple or forest green. It is a subtle way to change up your makeup routine but it will make your eyes pop. You should also get blush. Peach blush usually looks good on olive skin tones. It will really wake up your face.Makeup advice for school?
Once you wake up, brush your teeth and wash your face. Make sure you wash your face with a cleanser.

Take a nice warm shower.

When you get out of the shower, pat your face dry with a CLEAN towel. Don't rub your face with the towel. That could cause serious damage to your skin.

Gently massage in a face moisturizer while your face is a little damp.

Apply foundation. The best kind of foundation to use is mineral powder so it won't clog your pores. You can also try other things, but always remember to wash them off by the time you go to bed - breakouts will wreck your look.

Apply blush or bronzer to your cheeks to highlight and add dimension.

Use a soft-colored eyeshadow for your eyes. You want your makeup to bring out your true beauty. Keep it simple and natural.

Curl your lashes with a lash curler.

Apply a natural-colored eye liner only if you really need it. Apply it lightly.

Apply mascara to your lashes. Use clear, brown or black, depending on your needs, but be careful with black mascara - it can look very stark on some people.

If your lips need color, gently blot on a little lipstick.

Apply a layer of lip gloss over the lipstick or your natural lips for a little color and shine. If that looks to gaudy on you, just use a moisturizing lip balm.

Touch up any areas you missed with your foundation, and blend it well along your jawline. If your face is now a different shade than your neck, brush a little bit of foundation down your neck.
I think a pretty blue would look nice. Try HIP by L'oreal Paris. They have some very pretty blue colors. They are about $6 each, but they come with two colors in each container. They also have a nice gold paired with purple that might look nice on you.
Playing with eye shadows is always a fun way to mix things up. Also, tinted lip glosses. Since it's for school, you definitely want to keep it simple.
I always say at the very least...concealer where you need it, mascara, blush %26amp; lip color. This is 5 minutes or less, wakes up the face and you still feel polished.
Maybe a little bronzer on your cheeks and forehead?
