Back to School Makeup

Hey guys!
So yesterday marked my first day back in school! I'm not particularly excited but I figured some of you might be so I thought why not show this cute Nemo clip and do a "Back to School" makeup look :)

This look is very easy and took hardly no time. I used a drugstore palette from Wet N Wild called Comfort Zone. Only 3 eyeshadows, liner, and mascara used for the eyes. I think the eyes should take about 3-4 minutes total- the liquid liner taking up most of that time. Anyways, hope you enjoy and have a great start to your next school year!

Prime lids with an eyeshadow primer 
Place a light champagne colored cream shadow in the inner corner and under the brow as a highlight base.

Pack on a shimmery light pink shade across the lid

Next, take a medium brown and contour your eyes by placing it into the crease. This will give your eyes more definition.

Apply a shimmery highlight shade into the inner corner and under the brow (on top of where you placed the cream base). This will brighten the eyes to make you appear less tired and more awake.

Apply a liquid liner across the top lashes only. This will draw the attention up and again add to the affect of being wide awake.

Finally, curl lashes and apply mascara!

Now you have a fresh-faced look perfect for back to school!

    1. Aww I'm so glad you asked! All I can say is there is that with high school comes drama, whether it be boys, school, teachers, extra curriculum activities or friends. Everything in high school always seems to be dramatic and blown out of proportion. Try to do your best in everything you're in and keep calm. Don't sweat the small things. I like to ask myself "Will this matter in a week? in a year?" if not, don't worry about it. :) Thanks for the comment.
