Election Day Makeup Tutorials Are, Surprisingly, A Thing

Voters are really taking election style to the next level this year. There are sassy pins, outrageous T-shirts, movements to wear white and pantsuits, election nail art, and even patriotic election 2016 makeup tutorials to help add a splash of personal style to the democratic process. I shouldn't be surprised. Millennials don't do anything in a boring way, and they especially don't create history without putting their own stamp on things. 

Self-expression isn't the only force driving election day makeup. I thought I was the only one looking for some tips on how to cover up my dark circles after a long night of no sleep, but the need for a little fresh faced makeup magic after some Voters Eve tossing and turning is apparently a thing. I feel such solidarity.  

Whether your goal is to look presidential, to hide your sleeplessness, or to carry the election theme into all things today, these election 2016 makeup tutorials got your back. Well, technically, they got your face. But you know what I mean. And remember, even if you just roll out of bed and stumble to the polls in your adult unicorn onesie pajamas, all that really matters is that you vote.
