That thing you love doing after school? It helps define you...and low-key defines your beauty vibe. Consider these looks a mood ring for your makeup (just trust us).

If you're always: Leading a student government meeting

Your cal is stacked, pack leader, but put-together and polished is the name of the game. Try a smattering of sparkles, gelled brows that won't budge (not a hair out of place!) and a gloss you can reapply sans mirror.

Brush your brows (passenger seat only, pls). Try Maybelline New York Brow Fast Sculpt, $8.


Glitter = a must. Try e.l.f Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow in Disco Queen, $5.


Go for gloss. Try Tower 28 ShineOn Milky Lip Jelly in Oat, $14.


If you're always: Painting in the art studio

Your artistic skills abound no matter the canvas. Highlight your creativity by getting comfy with geometric shapes and cool color pairings only you could pull off.

Pair pink on pink. Try NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner in Vivid Petal, $7, and Fenty Beauty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Bikini Martini, $20.
