Easy Back to School Makeup Look

Hi everyone!

Happy weekeeeeend 😁 Hope everyone is doing okay and that you're all trying to get used to the school/university routine.

Today I'm going to share with you my go-to makeup look for university which usually takes me less than 10 minutes. I've looked for these kind of makeup looks multiple times on Youtube but every time I do, I always find makeup looks which either take too much time to create or consist some kind of smokey eye or some form of contouring or highlighting. I mean, I love all of those things but do I really have time for all of this in the morning? Who got time for a winged eyeliner at 6.30am? Who got time for contouring or blending your eye-shadow? Not me! If I know I've got a couple of extra minutes in the morning, I can rest assure you that I would rather spend them sleeping rather than doing my makeup for school!
Products I used to create this easy makeup look

So this makeup look is for all of you who are looking for a simple look for school or for those who are not morning people (just like me) or for those of you who are always late (guilty here too 🙈). Let's get on with the post 👉

I usually start my makeup look by applying concealer to my dark areas, pimples or imperfections. Conceal under the eyes in a downward triangular shape so as to illuminate the area and make you look more awake. I usually sleep late (and I regret that in the morning) so I'd take all the help I can get from my concealer! Then I move on to applying some powder foundation to set everything in place and remove that shininess or oiliness. Afterwords I apply some natural-looking blush to give my face some colour as I usually look pale in the morning! I finish my makeup look with some mascara which I apply to my top and bottom lashes. Feel free to apply some lip balm to your lips to help keep them moisturized throughout the day. I also like to lightly fill in my brows with some eye-shadow colour that matches my eyebrows (links to all the products I use at the end of the post) and use some of that excess eye-shadow to apply it as eyeliner on my waterline. And that's it - it's as simple as that 😆
End result!
