Hey Beauties!! Well first of all I’m so so sorry that I haven’t posted anything in 5 days. I’ve been so busy with school and it’s only my second week back! Staying on the topic of school, today’s post will be my everyday makeup look that I use for school. Now this look is very very simple but I thought I’d share it with you guys for anyone looking for a quick and simple look!
After washing my face with a cleanser, I moisturize and prime my face. I moisturize with Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Face lotion, which includes an SPF of 15 which is a huge plus since it also protects you from the sun. I prime my face with Bare Minerals Prime Time, rubbing it evenly on my face using my hands. I love this primer because it doesn’t clog my pores and smoothes out some of my imperfections.
Next, I apply my foundation. Since its been over 100 degrees fahrenheit almost every day, I like to use powder foundation instead of liquid, which I’d probably sweat off. I use Bare Minerals’ Original Powder Foundation in Fairly Light. I start off by shaking a small amount of product into the lid of the container and buffing it into my face with a kabuki brush. I usually apply two layers of this powder. I make sure to get all the areas of my face, as well as blending it into the neck.
Afterwards, I apply powder concealer on all my blemishes. The concealer I use is also by Bare Minerals, Concealer Broad Spectrum with SPF 20. I apply this product by picking some up with a small fluffy brush and blending it out on any acne or dark spots.
To set all my powders I use Maybelline’s Finishing Veil Powder. Like the foundation, I tap some product into the lid first. To apply this product I use a fluffy powder blush, swirling it in the lid. I use the brush on my face all over in circular motions.
Highlighter is definitely my favorite makeup product to use. My current favorite highlighters are from the Carli Bybel Palette. I use the shade marked with an “X” below and apply it to my cupids bow and on the tip and bridge of my nose with a small fan brush.
Lastly I curl my eyelashes and set my brows in place with a spooley brush. My eyelashes are naturally on the longer side, so I often don’t apply mascara every day. For my lips, I use Baby Lips medicated tinted lip balm. This lip balm leaves your lips feeling cool and moisturized, and also gives your lips a natural tint!
Well there you guys go! I hope you all enjoy this post! This look is very simple and doesn’t take more than 10-15 minutes, perfect for a fast routine when you’re running out of time. All the brushes that I use for my school routine (except for the kabuki brush from ecotools) are from my 36 pc Ultimate Brush Set from Bh Cosmetics. I wrote a post about them if anyone would like to check it out (: Also just a little fun fact but all of the products from Bare Minerals that I used, I bought in a kit that I purchased from TJ Maxx for only $30! (Now is that a deal or what?) Thank you all so much for reading this post and please leave any feedback/advice down below! Love you beauties! xoxo
