Back To School: Simple, Fresh Faced Makeup

It's official my back to school series (which will continue on my You~Tube) is kick starting today and I know that it's incredibly late but I do plan on doing some during the school year which will hopefully help/inspire you, or just give you a little something to read/watch when you're bored.

I absolutely love this look because its so neutral and although you are wearing makeup it's still a natural look and completely adaptable to meet your skin needs.

Let me know if you'd like to see a photo of the finished result for future posts!

A rather dark photo today, sorry!
 Starting with a clean face I recommend using Garnier Moisture Match - Illuminating light lotion for normal skin, this product is super light and feels amazing on the skin as well as creating the perfect base for BB creams/Foundation (optional) , the fact that this has SPF 20 means you're protected from the suns harmful rays without having to take an extra step and applying sun cream which more often than not is white based and leaves you looking washed out as well as sticky also this product does actually make your face glow (in a good way) which is amazing for looking wide awake in the morning!

The BB cream/Foundation step is completely optional (as is this entire look!) however for the purpose of this post i included it, I love this BB cream and prefer it over the 8 in one BB cream simply because my skin looks better with this but if you have oily skin the other would be perfect (click here for review)

The concealer I've included is one I'm sure you're all familiar with, the Collection Lasting perfecting Concealer which i think is perfect for covering those under eye circles!
I've not included a powder as i have yet to find one that i'm in love with.

The Revlon photo ready blush is perfect for school as its subtle and goes onto the skin beautifully (can be applied with stippling brush or fingers)

As for lips this is a product that i have recently purchased (along with another shade) that I'm head over heels in love with, its in the colour 001 Pink Truffle and its just like my lip colour but better! So in a way this is my way of wearing the 'nude lip' as i find beige colours don't suit me and of course the Revlon lip butters are amazing (currently on for 2 for £10 in boots)

For the eyes i wanted to keep it simple with just a mascara and eyeliner, I like to apply the eyeliner as close to the lash line as possible and make it slightly thicker towards the end, not winging it out as I find this makes my lashes look thicker without being too dramatic for school. The eyeliner is the collection extreme felt tip liner in black and the mascara is the Maybelline Mega Plush mascara (perfect natural yet long lashes)

Till' next time beauties,

  5. I tried a sample of that garnier moisture match and it felt so wrong on my skin T.T i had the genius idea to try it before flying to italy and at first it felt very smooth but during the day i noticed the bronzer just became patchy and dirty-looking and the creme started peeling off my forehead and looked like dry skin. horrible experience. now i'm scared to try the other products of the range :S

    1. oh my! I'm so sorry this happened to you! I personally love it and I find that it works perfect for my skin, although you may consider giving it a second chance as when on a plane your skin does tend to become dry and makeup generally doesn't look as good! Also the product isn't too moisturising and wouldn't have been able to cope with those conditions.
      But again I guess it really does all depend on different skin types, but i personally love this and I find my self using over and over but paired with another moisturiser as I don't think its enough on its own.
