Back to School: Beauty

I am a huge fan of the "less is more" mentality when it comes to makeup. I have never been one to cake on foundation, fill in my eyebrows or wear a lot on a day to day basis just because it is not my style. For the second installment of my back to school series, I thought I would share with you all what makeup essentials you should have for this school year! Whether you are 13 or 30, every person needs these 5 things.

I have actually stopped wearing my CC cream and I now just wear concealer because I find that it is all I need. Even if you like a full coverage face or a more natural approach, everyone needs a good concealer. This one is my favorite because it is high coverage without being cakey. 

My best friend Katie always says that everyone needs blush regardless of their skin tone and I have to say that I completely agree with her! If you don't put on blush, your face can appear a little flat (which is never fun). My favorite blushes right now are in the Jaclyn Hill x Becca champagne pop face palette, which is unfortunately sold out, however I used the MAC pink swoon blush for years and absolutely loved it.

This is a no brainer…if you do not put on mascara, it is 100% a sin. Mascara will instantly brighten your eyes, make them look bigger and just overall make you look more awake, which we all need during the school year. I love the Benefit roller lash because it gives my lashes so much volume and length. 

I think that lip products are so personal because some feel more confident in a bold lip, some feel confident in a glossy lip and some feel confident in a matte lip. I am personally a matte girl because it still gives your lips a little something, but it doesn't make too much of a statement. My all time favorite matte lips are from NYX from their soft matte lip cream range.

Now, some of you may disagree with me on this, but I totally think that a highlighter should be on your back to school makeup list! Whenever I put on highlighter, I instantly feel so much more put together because feel like I look glowy and youthful. I love the Laura Mercier highlighter because it is so natural and gives your skin the healthiest looking glow. 

I hope that this helped you guys in figuring out what should be on your back to school beauty wish list!
