Cool College Back To School Makeup Tutorial You Must Try
Though another school year entails a lot of school work and projects, I believe it’s also the chance to experiment with new looks that will surely make you motivated to go to school. It’s the time of the year to go shopping for new fashion essentials, makeup products, and skincare must-haves.
I’ve received a lot of request on makeup looks that are perfect this coming school year. So, I thought to give you an idea of which would suit you best. I think that going light, natural, and glowy is the best option you have. While it’s always fun to have smokey eyes it’s simply not appropriate during the day time, you can opt to do that when you’re out partying with your friends.
For now, let’s go ahead and make you beautiful with this back to school makeup tutorial:

Step 1: Apply Your Moisturizer And Mattifying Base
First off, you need to moisturize. As I always say, this step is very important. You should always make sure you hydrate your skin all the time. This will prevent the appearance of premature signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. You also want to look fresh!
Apart from your moisturizer, using a mattifying base would make your skin look shine-free throughout the day. Apply this to areas which tend to be oily, like your cheeks, chin, and forehead. This will also help the makeup last the whole day.
Step 2: Apply Your Makeup Base
Apply the Olay CC Cream or any other CC or BB cream you like, with the use of a beauty blender. Remember that you are trying to achieve a youthful glow so going heavy with your base makeup is a big no-no!
Step 3: Put On Your Concealer
Well, this is one way to apply your concealer. Create three lines under your eye and with the remaining cream on the applicator, apply the concealer to other areas of the face such as the forehead, nose, chin and sides of the mouth, this process creates a highlight and a lifting effect to your face. Blend it all in with your beauty blender.
Step 4: Set All The Areas With Concealer
With the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Powder or any other powder of your choice, set all the areas where you placed your concealer, you don’t want it to be cakey right? Set the rest of your face with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, again you can opt to use any other brand you want. Although, I particularly love the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder because it leaves a super tiny tint on the face but it never cakes on me.
Step 5: Dust Your Face With A Bronzer
Dust your face with your bronzer and darken your shading with the Natural Collection Eyeshadow. Use a clean brush and blend everything together. You want to provide warmth to your face.
Step 6: Dab In Your Blush
Dab your blush on the apples of your cheeks to give it a bit of color. Choose shades with a warmer glow to it or those with a little sheen, remember sheen not shimmer.
Step 7: Fill In Those Brows
With the use of your Soap & Glory Archery – Hot Chocolate, brush your eyebrows and fill them up. If you have naturally thick eyebrows, this may take only a short period of time. However, for those with thin brows, it may take time before you can fill them up.
Use the brow and lash gel to keep the hair in place. This will let your brows last the whole day too.
Step 8: Apply Eyeshadow On The Inner Part Of Your Eye
With the use of a light-colored eyeshadow, make your eyes glow by dabbing a little on the inner corner.
Step 9: Apply Your Mascara
Apply your mascara on both the upper and lower lashes. Make sure you curl your lashes first before applying your mascara. This will accentuate your eyes without applying too much makeup. Use a nude eyeliner on your lower eye line to make your eyes brighter.
Step 10: Apply Your Lipliner And Lipstick
Apply your lipliner to add shape to your lips. Fill them up with your favorite shade of lipstick. For back to school look, I recommend using nude or light pink shades. These shades will make you look more youthful.
