My Back-to-School Makeup Lookbook


I have always been passionate about my education, but imagining all of the different makeup looks I plan on creating during the upcoming school year has made me look forward to returning to college even more. I know that everyone has different preferences when it comes to cosmetics, so instead of just creating one makeup look and hoping everyone likes it, I decided to create three different makeup looks; whether you enjoy barely-there beauty or soft glam, be sure to keep scrolling because you will be sure to find your perfect look below.

{LOOK #1 – First Day Glam}

Perfect for the first day of class or yearbook photos, this makeup look incorporates everything I love — flawless, glowing skin, stunning neutral eyeshadow, and pinky-nude lips. If you enjoy wearing a glamorous full face of makeup, but want to do so in a more tasteful and sophisticated way, then I think this look will be for you!

{LOOK #2 – ‘No-Makeup’ Makeup}

 If you want to appear more polished and put together than when you first woke up, but don’t want to look like you are actually wearing any makeup, then I love opting for this type of look. For a truly natural effect, I enjoy using all cream products and applying them with a beauty sponge instead of brushes.

For my final makeup look, I chose to use an assortment of five beauty products, all of which can be combined to create a minimal makeup look in under five minutes. If you are a good skin day, this foundation-free face will be ideal, especially if you are running late or just feeling lazy on early school mornings.
