Easy, Breezy, Casual // Back To School Makeup Routine

Hey there,

Today I'm showing you my favorite makeup look for going back to school. It's very neutral, very easy to wear and to replicate on a day to day basis, since let's be honest, I'm not a professional makeup artist.  

So little disclaimer! No I'm not a professional, I'm not perfect either, I'm still learning how to do my makeup, and I'm sharing with you what I'm learning. 

Let's get into it! Hope you like it, and let me know in the comments or on my social media accounts if you tried to do this look! 


First of all, I start with my foundation. I'm using my Revlon Color Stay foundation in the shade 250, which is Fresh Beige. I apply it all over my face with the Real Techniques Expert Face brush. 

When I apply it, I just put 1-2 drops on the back of my head and then use my brush to apply it on my face. 

It's a great foundation! In fact, I had some crazy spots in the beginning of the months and my cousin was stunned how great the coverage of my foundation was, since she didn't notice at all my spots and blemishes, that is of course, until I took off my makeup... 


It's a medium coverage foundation, mine is for combination/oily skin, it stays on all day since I really don't do any touch up on my skin during the day, and it's really affordable! 

Next, I apply my Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in a triangle shape under my eyes, then in a line on my nose, cupid bones, a little bit on my forehead and chin. 


I still use my Real Techniques Expert Face brush when I apply it. I love this concealer too, it really conceals well, very affordable, and it stays on quite well too. 


Then I powder my face with my Stay Matte Pressed Powder from Rimmel with my Real Techniques Powder Brush.


If you read my beauty post from my Packing for Florence series and my July's Favorites post, you'll know that it's a great powder, which really helps keeping my makeup on. I love it and again it's very affordable!


When I'm done with my foundation, it's eyebrows time! I'm using my Benefit Gimme Brow gel, which I love and  is one my all time favorite! I did a review on it, as well on my July's Favorites post. So All I'm gonna say here is that it really gives you that EyeBrows on Fleek look.




Next step is contouring with my Maxi Delight Bronzer from Bourgeois. I apply it with my Bronzer Brush from Sephora.


What I do is that I do my best fish face to apply it in the hollows of my cheeks, then I do a 3 shapes aka I apply it on the outsides of my forehead and under my jaw. 



Then is blush time! I'm currently using my Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Palette and I apply it my Real Technique Blush Brush. 


It's really shimmery and it stays on forever! Love love love love it!


For highlighting, I normally use my Kiko Radiant Touch Highlighter Stick on the top of my cheeks, under my eyebrows, on my cupid bones and down my nose, and blend it with my fingers. But this time I use my Mineralize Skin Finish highlighting powder from Mac and I apply it with a regular powder brush. 



Let's get into the real serious deal now! The eyes!


I first prime my eyes with the Rimmer Undercover Shadow Primer, which I apply all over my eye lids and blend with my fingers. 

Then, I take my Soba eyeshadows from Mac which is a "gold brown with gold shimmer shadow" according to Mac, I apply it all over my eye lid with a fluffy brush from Sephora. 




For my crease I use the Texture eyeshadow, which is a "peachy brown with shimmer" shadow still from Mac. I apply with the same fluffy blush from Sephora. 



Next, it's time to give my eyes a little wing! I use my 24/7 Liquid Liner from Urban Decay. It's a great eyeliner, and I talked about it on my Favorites post.


I just draw a line and finish it with a kind of small wing. If I mess up, because I do mess up sometimes, especially if someone is taking my picture while I'm drawing my wing, I just correct it with a Q-Tip with a little bit of eye makeup remover. 


For the mascara, I'm using on my top and bottom lashes non other than the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I love it so much!!!!!!! Not only does it lift up my lashes, but it gives the impression of fuller and longer lashes! 



Finally, for the lipstick I apply my Ruby Woo Mac Lipstick, one of my favorites for Summer/Fall transition. It's a matte lipstick so it really stays on and the color is so great, it gives a retro red touch. 


If you're not in for bold lips, you can also wear a nude lipstick. My favorite to go with this look is Mac Mehr Lipstick, which is a pinky nude matte lipstick. 


That's it for my makeup look! 

Hope you liked it,
