There's nothing like the smell of freshly sharpened pencils and a clean notebook ready to be filled with ideas. Every school year is a fresh start, so now is the perfect time to get inspired by the best part of school—the supplies! Contemporary class accessories have undergone a sophisticated facelift in the past few years (though we do miss our Lisa Frank binders), and shopping for a box of colored pencils has never been more exciting! We love the color-blasted shoot from Vogue Portugal's latest issue (above)—the greige backdrop provides the perfect foundation for these "Crayola" colors to pop.
You can easily incorporate these vivid hues into your back to school beauty routine. Paint a French manicure with a greige base and colored tips, wear a deep navy shadow on your lids with a contoured face, or try a bold magenta lip if you're feeling festive. With this gorgeous palette, you'll wish you could revel in school supplies year-round!
