Hey! Its phoebs :)
Woo second post of the day! I am going to do another back to school post. I hope you guys are enjoying them haha. I am technically not allowed to wear makeup to school so I have kept this look very minimal. I think it is a look you can build on to suit you. Also all the products (except one) are drugstore so it is very affordable. Lets get started!
On my face I will be applying the soap and glory kick ass concealer under my eyes and on redness/blemishes. I then applied the powder that came with the concealer on my 17 face brush. For school I really like a matte finish, so you don't look all shiny. Then I am taking the L'Oreal True Match powder in Vanilla Rose all over my face.
On my brows I am not doing a super strong brow. I am using the benefit Browzings to fill them in lightly. I love this so much, and it lasts all day. Really just use what you like doing to your brows, that could be just combing them or doing a full brow routine.
I use to love the collection lasting perfection concealer, but I find it a bit cakey now. I love it as an eye primer because it has great staying power. I used the concealer in the shade 1 (fair) all over my lids as it makes me look more awake. I then applied the white shade from my sleek pallete on the inner and outer corner of my eyes. Again this is to give the illusion of brighter, more awake eyes. I also used a tiny bit of the light brown colour in my crease to add more definition. If you wanted to build on this look, I would use an eyeliner, but because of my school rules, I wanted the look to be super natural.
For mascara, I have discovered a trick that makes it look really natural. I curled my lashes, then held the mascara wand at the very root of my lashes for a couple of seconds. This sort of tightlines your eyes. Then I only applied mascara to the tips of my lashes, making them look naturally long. Simple, eh?
This blush is super natural for school. I dusted the smallest amount on the apples of my cheeks with the real techniques contour brush.
This is the final look! I think it is very fresh and natural for school, so I hope this helps you out a little bit.
I hope you are enjoying my back to school series, I would love you to tell me what you think of it :)
