Beauty 101: Best Lipstick for your Major

Whether you want to believe it or not, your college major has a lot to say about who you are. Along with your personality comes certain style and beauty traits in which each different type of girl holds.  So, maybe you fit perfectly into these lip colors for you major, and maybe you don’t.  But regardless, here are some popular majors and what us girls at Finding Ferdinand seem to think is the BEST lip color for you to wear.

BUSINESS MAJOR

You’re all business -- literally.  Making important decisions calls for no games, you have to be straight to the point.  That’s why business majors are the perfect models for the signature red lip.  It’s a timeless color that shows you know “what’s up” in the business-world.

FINE ARTS MAJOR

You fine arts majors are creative and eccentric.  You express what you’re feeling through your works of art, literature, and other artistic mediums.  Since you stand out from the crowd by doing less-generic forms of work, a spunky orange lip color is spot on for you.

PRE-MED MAJOR

Everyone knows that you’re smart and a hard-worker.  Not to mention, it takes a special kind of person to want to work with the gorey and the not-so-gorey patients in the medical world.  But regardless if you’re a fan of blood or not, a simple nude shade is the way to go -- sterile and respectable.

ENGLISH LIT MAJOR

So, books are your thing.  More specifically, literature is your thing.  You analyze what you read like it’s no ones business.  But sometimes, people can get the feeling that you’re introverted.  So let your true self shine by wearing a lip color that says the opposite of timid: a hot pink.
