Back to School | Make Up

Many people wear make up to school even though the school may no allow it. But in my opinion, as long as you keep it natural and suitable for school I don't see the problem. So I had a rummage in my make up collection and pulled out a few things that I think would be good for school make up.

It's a really inexpensive but effective mascara. The colour is very black and not dry so you can build coats up depending on your eyelash preference - natural or build up for a more dramatic look.

(Previously branded as Collection 2000) This is an amazing concealer, full stop. It could easily rival higher end concealers. It's a lovely creamy formula which is suitable to cover blemishes as well as dark circles. If you don't like wearing foundation, you could just dab this on your blemishes on it's own as it has such great coverage. 

3. Elf Studio Powder Brush (£3.75)
If you wear foundation to school, this is a great brush to apply both liquid or powder formulas. The bristles are really soft and dense and is a great quality brush - especially for the price!

4. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (£9.99)
Not as inexpensive but 100% worth it. It has a lovely formula which is really easy to blend in to your skin, doesn't feel to heavy, has a dewy finish and is long lasting. It also isn't as bad as other foundation for your skins as it contains fruit extracts.

4. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (£3.99)
If you have oily skin or just like a matt finish this is great powder for ridding of shine. You can either get it in your preferred shade or translucent. It also makes you skin look great.

5. Elf Eyebrow Kit (£3.75)
Filling in your eyebrows isn't a necessity for all people but I personally prefer it. This kit contains a powder a wax and a mini brush and is good for such an affordable price.

6.Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner (£2.99)
Eyeliner to many people is an introduction to make up. This is a great, afforable product. It's creamy and a jet black colour suitable for anyone who can't go without kohl liner.

7. Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss, Shade 08 (£5.49)
I personally wouldn't wear lipstick if I was still in high school, but I know some people do. If you do, this is a lovely subtle colour for school, it's a bit of a rosy, dusty pink - a kind of 'my lips but better' shade. The formula is also really nourishing and creamy.
        However, if you don't like wearing lipstick you could always opt for a normal lip balm or a tinted one.

I'm not saying that you should wear all of this stuff, but these are the types of products that you could wear. There're easily and widely available in stores like Boots or Superdrug and even supermarkets, all apart from the Elf products which are only available on their website (just click on the product link I left), and are all pretty inexpensive.

I hope you found this post useful!
