The summer is in full swing, but before you know it, school will be back in session. To help you get a leg up on your back-to-school makeup look, I've pulled together two looks (one delicate and charming, one bold and bronze) that I think would make a great impression on the first day of school. This way, your makeup look will be squared away in advance and you can focus on the important things, you know - like hitting the books!
There's nothing sweeter than a beautiful, fresh-faced look which will leave your classmates envious of all the rest and relaxation you undoubtedly got over the summer months. For this demure and polished makeup look, I chose a palette of soft and neutral colors that will let your natural beauty shine through. Start with your BASE shade, and then apply a sheer wash of the slightly shimmery AMBROSIA blush. This subtle shade of dusty pink will give your cheeks a delicate flush. To add a touch of neutral color and illuminate your eyes, try out A WISE GIRL KISSES. Then, finish off this look with WET SAND lucent powder, which will give your skin a bright, dewy finish.
On the other hand, if you want to play with a slightly bolder look and make your classmates think you just returned from a secluded beachside location - go for the bronze! For this kind of look, I'd say skip the base and highlight your forehead, nose, cheekbones and chin with my HAPPINESS BRONZER. This golden shade really complements a natural tan, and looks great when paired with rich color. WILD VINES is a deep berry shade that will work well with the bronzer.
What makeup look are you planning to dazzle them with on the first day back to school?
