School Appropriate Makeup Look

Hi everyone,
I know that when I started to get to the awkward teenage stage that all I wanted to do was to cover my whole face in makeup to hide everything. Don't! Today I want to share with you a makeup look that would look perfect for a school day that is super fast but also very natural looking as well. I do apologize that not all of these products are drugstore but there are obviously alternatives. If you do want some drugstore alternatives the link is here to my Drugstore Dupes post, which does include both high-end products in the post. Enjoy!

I know primer works for some and not others, so that's why I didn't include it, but if you want to start with a primer feel free to do that step first. Wearing foundation to school I think is not needed because you don't need to cover parts of your face that doesn't need covering. This is also meant to be a fast makeup look so we are best skipping foundation. For concealer, I would recommend the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer for under the eyes and the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer for any blemishes. Both concealers are super affordable and blend super easily but also giving good coverage at the same time. To set the concealer I would recommend the Rimmel Stay Matte, if you have dry skin this might cake up so use an alternative, but any oiliness can be powdered with this one.

Moving straight onto eye shadow. No one is going to appreciate a perfect brown, smokey eye or winged liner so save the time. A cream pencil for the eyes is the perfect fast but awakening product for the eyes. The NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk is my favorite but any white eye pencil will do. Just apply that into the inner corners, up to the eyelid and blend, blend, blend. This will really brighten up your whole face and make it look a lot more radiant. You cannot forget mascara so coat your lashes with your favorite one to finish the eyes. My favorite is the They're Real by Benefit but the choice is yours.

To finish off the entire look apply a tinted lip balm. Mine, of choice is the Benefit Posie Balm because I love the coral tint it gives my lips.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know whether you wear makeup to school and whether you like this chatty tutorial sort of post. Have a great day!
