[FOTD & Tutorial] Quick and Easy Back To School Makeup Look!

Hello barbies!
How's your day? Hope you're all enjoying and doing well.

So, today I wanted to share a quick and easy makeup look that is perfect for back to school or, in my case, back to campus. This look is really simple and easy. You can add a few things depending on your preferences and what looks best for you

OK, let's jump onto the tutorial~!


1. Start with a clean, moisturized face.
2. Then dab a few dots of your favorite foundation or BB Cream all over your face. In this look I'm using my Holy Grail BB cream from Garnier. You can apply it with your clean finger, a brush, or a sponge. On this look I use 2 methods, with my finger and with a brush. On my right side I apply the BB cream with a foundation brush by Real Techniques. While on the left side, I apply the BB cream with my clean finger. Can you spot the difference? :)
*Don't put too much, just take a little amount first. You want to keep as natural as possible. And if you feel the need to add more, just add a little more on your face and blend it so it looks natural.*
3. Then lightly dab on some concealer on the under eye area and all over your face to cover up some acne spots. Don't put too much or else it will look cakey and crease.
4. After that, lightly dust a little bit of powder on your T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin), under the eye to set the concealer and all over your face.
You can stop here if you want a really natural look
5.a. Then, take your favorite bronzer to contour your face. I'm using Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light. Lightly dab your brush on the contour shade and then swipe it on the hollows of your cheek. Using circular motion, lightly blend this until it blend nicely. This will create an illusion of slimmer face and more define cheek bone.
5.b. Take a tiny bit of the bronzer from the kit and lightly swipe this on the side of your nose to lightly contour the nose. This will create a slimmer nose.
6. Lastly, take the highlight shade and lightly dab this on top of your cheek bone and the bridge of the nose. This will give a nice glow to your face.

Excuse the pimple that wants to be on the photo

1. Define your eyebrow using an eyebrow pencil or powder.
2. Dab a little bit of your concealer on the entire lid area to conceal any redness and veins for peeking through.
3. Take your favorite matte mid-tone brown shade, lightly apply this on the crease. Using circular motion and wiper motion, blend the eyeshadow back and forth until it blended nicely.
4. Then, take a shimmery champagne color and apply it starting from the center of the lid to the inner corner. Apply this color on your inner corner will make your eyes appear more awake.
5. This is optional. You can take a tiny bit of the matte mid-tone brown shade and apply it one the outer half of your lower lash line.
6. Take your favorite gel or liquid liner and create a very thin line close to the upper lash line.
7. Lastly, curl your lashes and apply generous coats of your favorite mascara.

Please ignore that mascara mess on my lid..
1. Prep your lips by applying a nice lip balm. Then, wait a few moment to let the lip balm to set.
2. Apply your favorite lipstick. You can apply a bright, fun color or a nice nude color depending on your mood that day or your preference. In this look, I apply a nice nude, rosy pink color.

And, Voila~!
