By the time this publishes at around 8am I will already be on the bus on the way to school. The yr7’s and yr11’s (that’s me,) have to go in today, whereas the other years go in tomorrow. It is fair but how I would cherish one more day of holiday…Oh well. In light of my return to school I thought a couple of Back To School posts were probably a good idea.
Something that I didn’t write about last year was a fresh face look for school; I personally love quite a full face of makeup, however I have been trying out a more natural look to give my skin a breather. To do this I have been only using about four products so I thought I’d tell about them.
For a foundation I have been using Makeup Revolution’s Ultra Face Base Foundation in FB 02, I can’t work out if this is a BB Cream or not as it says it is a foundation but also a bb cream, oh well! Up until now it is only Rimmel that have managed to create a foundation that suits my skin tone, but Makeup Revolution have completely changed that. The shade FB 02 is almost identical to 010 Light Porcelain and I like it better than Rimmel’s Wake Me Up foundation. It’s a buildable foundation, but I find one layer is enough coverage for me.
Concealer wise I’m gonna have to go for the blogger favourite that is the Lasting Perfection Concealer. I may have only just got it but it already lives up to the hype. It has the perfect amount of coverage for school and brightens my under eye to hide any dark circles I have from staying up late ‘studying.’
Mascara is the one thing I always, without fail, wear. It instantly changes my face, makes me look more awake. One that I’m currently liking is the SEVENTEEN doll’d up mascara, it holds my lashes curled for ages.
Final thing for a fresh faced makeup look is a lipgloss, this one is Maybelline’s Color Sensational Cream Gloss in 130 Exquisite Pink. I would say it is more of a sheer candy orange that doesn’t translate when applied to the lips. A gloss is great as it just adds a subtle shine and completes a look.
I haven’t included anything for brows as I’m not sure how many people would take a lot of time before school to tend to them so I’d probably just run a brow brush through them and possibly a wax if they weren’t behaving! I hope this has given you ideas on what sort of makeup I am planning to wear to school and check back here Saturday for another Back To School themed post!
