Back to School Makeup by Menat El Abd
Get the Back to School Look:
Summer vacation was great! Now, it’s time to say goodbye and get ourselves ready to head back to school! We got our tanned look on and I am pretty sure you want to get your “Back to School” glam on too! Many of us have a list of last-minute school items to purchase.
I know these items include a lot of colored highlights, pens, notebooks and maybe make up too! But when it comes to buying make up, let me help you with that! I already prepared for you a list of “back-to-school” makeup items you’ll need along with the detailed steps on how to achieve this simple fast glam! What I love about this look is that it’s super easy and it’s also very light and refreshing to start your school year.
Not only this look is exciting but what is important about it is to create a “Back to School” glam to embrace your natural look, bring out that inner glow and enhance your features. With these easy steps to follow, you will have the perfect soft glam with THICK BROW.
Yes, brows! The best thing about this look is that you’ll learn one of its key factors on how to achieve perfect long-lasting brows! Follow these steps to know how to master this look in no time! This look is specifically made for the times when you’re in a rush in the morning and still want to glam up before school!
1- Let’s wash our faces with some fresh cold water and wake up! It’s important to always start your look with a clean face! Once your face is dried up and ready to go, take the POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible Finish Mattifying Gel and apply it on the face, mainly the T-zone. This primer is great for mattifying the face and it helps your make up last all day!
2- Once we’re done mattifying, it’s time for hydrating! Grab the Boi-ing Hydrating Concealer and apply it under the eyes. What I love the most about this concealer is that it covers the dark circles, brightens up your look and hydrates under the eyes!
3- Next thing, we move on to coverage! Apply a little bit of Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation and blend it with your hand! It’s so easy to use and blend. For a more blurred effect, use your beauty blender and blend away!
4-Once we’re done with the coverage, we can go ahead and start what I love doing the most which is contouring using Hoola Lite Powder over the cheekbones and the jawline. This instantly changes your look and brings out your beautiful features. And
never forget to apply on the neck as well!
5- As for the cheeks, I always love to add a little bit of color using the Gold Rush Blush and apply it on the apple of the cheeks. The pigment and the finish add a healthyflush to your overall look which I personally love.
6- You can NEVER finish a look without a little bit of …Glow! Grab your High Beam highlight and apply it along the cheekbones and blend! It’s texture and pigment complements the softness of your overall look.
1- For a soft eye look that lasts all day, I highly recommend priming the lids first with “Stay, Don’t Stray” Eye Primer to set in the eyeshadow.
2- After setting and priming the lids, grab your They’re Real! Duo Eyeshadow Blender Beyond Easy Eyeshadow Duo in shade “Easy Smokin’” and apply the lighter shade over the lids then the dark brown color in the crease. Mixing these two shades
together will complement your look for sure
3- The last step before finishing with the eyeshadow is to take the dark brown color again and apply it on the waterline. This technique WILL make your eyes pop!
4- Once we’re done with the eyeshadow, grab the Roller Lash Mascara and apply it over your lashes for that extra definition for a wide-eyed effect and for those long lashes!
1. Now let’s get to WORK, take ka-BROW! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color with Brush and start filling in the brows by applying fake hairs. Creating those hair strokes will instantly give you that fuller brows effect.
2. Brush the BROWS afterwards with a spoolie brush. Always remember that brushing the brows helps a lot with BLENDING! It helps to blend the brows with the product to soften any harsh edges and makes them look natural as ever.
3. To set the whole look for the whole day, apply 24-HR Brow Setter Shaping & Setting Gel over the brows to set them in! This transparent gel will protect your brow look from anything for 24 hours!
4. Last step is to lift and to make those brows STAND OUT, highlight the brows with a High Brow pencil to bring out the brow shape and make it stand out. To do so, apply it right under the brows and blend with your finger! Super easy, super fast! It gives off a clean lifted finish for your brow look.
1- As a final touch, use They’re Real! Double The Lip Lipstick in “Nude Scandal”. What I love about this color is that it goes very well with the natural look and plumps up the lips.
That’s it! We’re done glamming and you are now ready to head out looking as glamourous as ever!
This look is so fast, easy and fresh for your “Back to School” makeup look. Trust me, it will not take much of you time!
