Unfortunately the summer holidays are over and we have to go back to school. What a better time to show you a simple, minimal make up that is more than a no-makeup makeup, but still toned down. If you want to have the perfect makeup for your first day in school, then keep on reading!
+ Sleek Storm Palette light matt brown eyeshadow
+ Artdeco 520 matt medium/mushroom brown eyeshadow
+ Kiko 167 matt white eyeshadow
+ Essence dark brown to black gel eyeliner in 02 London Baby
Start by applying an eyeshadow base on your eyelids. This prevents your eyeshadow from creasing during a long school day. For this tutorial I used matt eyeshadows for a more natural and minimal look. Now apply the matt light brown eyeshadow all over your lids and start concentrating the colour a tiny bit into your crease.
Then take a slightly darker brown. I used the Artdeco 520 matt medium/mushroom brown eyeshadow and applied it into my crease. Blend it a with fluffy crease brush so that the darker colour looks like a natural shadow.
Then apply a white matt shadow in the inner corner of your eye. This brightens up your look and makes you appear more awake.
Take the Essence dark brown to black gel eyeliner and draw a tiny line as close to the lash line as possible with an angled brush. Once you've reached the outer part of your eye, elongate the line for a tiny bit and connect it to the rest.
The eyeliner should be really minimal, just with a tiny flick so that your lashes appear thicker. Also the colour of this gel eyeliner is perfect, because it is neither to bold nor to invisible like a black or a light brown can often be.
Curl your lashes and apply mascara. I prefer two coats. And that's it!
According to the season I would just apply a tiny bit of bronzer on the apples of my cheeks and a lip balm.
Remember, you are young and you don't need a ton of makeup. You don't have to mask your face! I hope you liked this tutorial.
Please let me know when you have to go back to school?
Wish you a wonderful day!
Lots of love,
