Back to School Makeup Look
After a fun-filled summer of friends, family, bbqs, beach, lake, pool, and anything in between, it’s time to get ready for back to school! It always feels nice to have a few new outfits to put a little pep in your step for the new schoolyear. And it’s also a great idea to get some new makeup to help you look fresh! Here is a back to school makeup look that you can recreate to look and feel your best!
Back to School Makeup Essentials
Here are some essentials you’ll need to get a fresh back to school makeup look:
: You most likely spent some quality time under the sun this summer, right?! And that means you most likely got a little darker than your normal skin coloring. So, you’ll definitely want to get a darker shade of foundation to match that tan!
: What gal doesn’t want to look like a bronzed goddess??? Whether you got a lot of sun this summer or not, bronzer will be your best friend! But, skip the orangey Oompa Loompa bronzer and go for a natural sun-kissed glow cream bronzer. (Save $10 when you buy this cream bronzer & brush
as a bundle!)
: Don’t be afraid of blush! It’s not just for your grandma! Adding a little flush to your cheeks will help you look youthful and pretty.
: Using illuminator will help give you a glistening glow that will help you stand out and sparkle!
: Top your look off with a subtle lip color!
How to Get the Back to School Makeup Look
Now that you have the back to school makeup essentials, let’s get the look! Use a light layer of your foundation to help even out your skin tone.
Then, use a fluffy bronzer brush
to apply bronzer on the highest points of your face. Learn more about how to apply bronzer
the right way so you feel confident in the process.
After you’ve applied your foundation and bronzer, it’s onto blush! Apply a small amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks for a pretty flush.
Next, add a pretty glow with illuminator. Add it on the tops of your cheekbones, on your eyelids, and on the bow of your lip. You’ll love it!
Top your look off by adding a subtle lip color to your lips.
When you buy all these cute tins of makeup (foundation, bronzer, illuminator, lip & cheek) you can fit them all in one compact! It makes it super easy to get ready on the go and then touch up throughout the day! You can create your custom compact that nobody else has. Mix and match the colors you want and refill as needed. It’s the best makeup for school….you’ll love it!
