TAG: Advice For My Teenage Self

What are three makeup/fashion DO's & three makeup/fashion DON'Ts for your teenage self?
DO line your top lash line. Apparently in high school, I thought you only need to line your water line. 
DO get used to wearing jeans so you don't think sweatpants are appropriate to wear to class in college. 
DO use blush. I think I only used bronzer until senior year of high school, & even then I only owned one blush. 
DON'T get addicted to tanning beds. Not a good look in pictures down the road.
DON'T over-tweeze your eyebrows. You will pay for it in the future. 
DON'T skip mascara (I often did this, not sure why).

What is a deep and meaningful piece of advice you'd give your teenage self?
"Always choose Paris."

Give your teenage self one tip on school.
If you're smart enough to be taking honors classes, take AP classes & actually try on the exams. Having college credit for AP classes I took in high school would have been fab, but I decided that since I wasn't getting graded, it didn't matter. I also missed out on some AP classes I could have taken because I was a lazy pile.

Give your teenage self one tip on friends.
Be friends with everyone & don't get caught up in all the drama. I followed the first piece of advice really well; I just kind of floated around from friend group to friend group (I have all my life). But having friends in all different groups propelled me even more to get into everyone's drama & made me a huge drama queen. Shock, I know.

Give your teenage self one tip on having fun.
YOLO. Seriously though, not YOLO. Have fun, but don't find it necessary to document every drink you shouldn't be taking or skanky shirt you shouldn't be wearing on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. I'm so grateful those things weren't around when I was in high school, but I managed to do enough damage with Webshots.

If you could do it all again, what would you tell your teenage self? I know I can't be the only one out there who would do about a million things differently. That being said, it has made for some good stories.
