Keep reading to see a back to school makeup tutorial you need this fall.
It’s that time of year again! New school year, a fresh start. If you’re like me and despise early mornings, you probably don’t want to spend much time on your makeup in the morning. With early mornings in mind, I’ve created a quick and easy back to school makeup tutorial which will have you fresh-faced in 10 minutes or less! Enjoy!
Step 1: Prep Your Skin
Before you begin applying makeup it is important to prime your skin. Clinique has made this process super easy and created a 3-Step Skincare System to cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize! This customized system is tailored to accommodate your skin concerns and leaves your skin feeling vibrant for the day! The Redness Solutions 3-Step Skincare System works best for my skin as it helps to cancel out unwanted redness in my face. The cleanser and exfoliator is essential to removing lingering makeup and oil buildup from the previous day. Post-cleanse, the moisturizer helps to hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. I absolutely love how quick and easy this 3-Step Skincare System is – perfect for early mornings!
Step 2: Apply a 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer
To begin this look, create an even skin tone with foundation and concealer. To save time, apply your favorite 2-in-1 foundation and concealer by dotting it all over your face and then gently blending it into your skin. Lately I’ve been using Clinique’s Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. This product works as both a foundation and concealer, saving me time in the mornings. The applicator allows me to easily dot the product onto my face, and then I blend the product into my face using my fingers. Easy peasy!
Step 3: Massage Under Eye Bags + Puffiness Away!
Any hour prior to 11AM is far too early for school in my books. 8AM classes are just cruel. To remove unwanted bags and puffiness under your eyes, apply an eye serum containing caffeine. I’ve been using Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage to massage away bags and puffiness with a cooling rollerball just like magic!
Step 4: Bring The Life Back To Your Face
My earliest class in university was 10AM and it almost killed me. Anyone who knows me knows I am NOT a morning face. I’ve learned to fake life into my face with the help of blush. Apply a rose tinted blush to brighten your complexion and bring some life back into your face! I’ve been loving Clinique’s Cheek Pop in Pink Pop to give that just pinched look!
Step 5: Lengthen Lashes
Time to widen and brighten your eyes with mascara! To give your eyelashes more volume and length, apply two coats of mascara. I’m using Clinique’s High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara along with Clinique’s Bottom Lash Mascara to lengthen my eyelashes.
Step 6: Moisturize Your Lips
Add some moisture to your lips with your favourite lip balm! I’ve been absolutely loving Clinique’s Superbalm Lip Treatment to hydrate and replenish my lips.
Step 7: Add a Pop Of Color!
To finalize this look add a pop of color with your favorite lipstick. Clinique’s Pop Lip Colour in ‘Fab Pop‘ is the perfect punch of blush pink in a demi-matte finish. All set for class!
