Hello everyone! 😀
So, how many of you are going back to school soon? And how many of your schools don’t allow makeup? Well, I’ve gotcha, boo!
These are some drugstore products that create the ‘no-makeup makeup look’, perfect if you’re not allowed lots of/any makeup. 🙂
1) The Face:
The most important thing is the canvas, since we won’t be doing anything dramatic to the eyes/lips.
I’d personally suggest BB or CC creams, especially if you’re going to be putting makeup on every day, as they are lighter than foundations, but still have decent coverage. And besides, foundation usually disappears after a little period of time, leaving your face feeling disgusting and clogged.
Here are my recommendations:
If you have any spots you might wake up and want to cover them up. I still haven’t found the perfect concealer, but have heard of a few good ones.
Collection Lasting Perfection
Maybelline Fit Me
[ if you don’t want to purchase concealer, building up the coverage of your BB/CC cream/foundation can work just fine. 🙂 ]
This is the step that will make you look alive and well. 🙂
My current favourite blusher is by Kiko and it’s their Baked Blush in the shade 03 Wild Mauve. It’s a bit more pricey, though, but I’d say it’s worth it.
… and some that I’ve heard about, yet never tried:
Bourjois Cream Blushers
Rimmel Stay Blushed
2) The Eyes
This is what makes the eyes look so much better. I never understood the mascara hype but then I decided to just put makeup on one half of my face and holly molly! It makes such a difference! Here are some mascara recommendations:
Maybelline Great Lash (perfect everyday mascara – I waffled about it here)
…. and the ones that are super praised, but that I haven’t tried yet:
Maybelline Lash Sensation
Maybelline Rocket Vollume
The most fun part, yay!
For the lips, I’d go for either a tinted lip balm, a lip gloss or a nude lipstick. Anything light, basically.
Tinted lip balms:
Nivea/Labello – the widest selection of tinted lip balms in Europe, I’m pretty sure.
Baby Lips – the ever-so-popular product – Peach Kiss seems like a great nude colour. Just watch out for the neon colours – they really are way too bright. (for my skin tone; Fruit Punch doesn’t suit me at all!)
NYX Butter Gloss – I’m not sure if this is from the high street, but their glosses are incredible. I have mine in the shade Apple Strudel and it’s the perfect ‘nude’/pinkish-coral shade for me.
Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipsticks – nothing beats a good Rimmel lipstick. 🙂
And that’s all for today, folks! I hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂
(When) are you going back to school?
Thanks for reading!
Have a lovely day! 🙂
