Okay, so when your teachers talk about school supplies, they're technically referring to locker staples like pencils, highlighters, and a notebook. But let's be real- getting ready for classes to begin entails SO much more than a simple trip to Office Max. We're talking about backpacks to carry your stuff in, the perfect outfit for the first day, and even grade A nail art.

As a longtime member of the MTV family, we have a special spot in our heart for Holland Roden...not only for our Teen Wolf addiction (duh) but also because the actress is a total style magnet. She's no stranger to the statement lip, consistently working bright reds, hot pinks, and vampy burgundy on the red carpet, a move that perfectly complements her porcelain skin. Recreate the gorge look yourself starting with a pinch of pearly blush like Benefit Posietint Cheek Stain ($29). Frame your eyes with a swipe of Maybelline's Great Lash Mascara (an old staple for just $5!) and Almay's Eyeliner/Highlighter duo. Then it's time for the piece de resistance, the bold bright lip. We love Makeup Forever's Rouge Artist collection, not only because it's super creamy but because it lasts FOREVER. Seriously, just try to swipe this baby off....we dare you.
