School Inspired Makeup

Hey everyone! :) So today's post is going to be a back to school tutorial! This look doesn't have to be just for school,it's also great for fall in general! This look is going to be pretty simple,not over-done. Let's get started! :)

Start off with a base. Using your finger, apply this all over your lid.

With a flat shader brush take a peachy pink eyeshadow and apply that to your lid. This will really brighten up your eyes. :)

Take a brown eyeshadow on a fluffy brush and apply this to your crease. Make sure the color isn't too dark,just enough to add depth.

Take a tiny bit of a warmer brown and place it on the outer edge of you eye. You don't want this to be very dark,so make sure you're using a light hand. Also use this to darken up your upper lash line. You don't want to look like you're wearing eyeliner,but this will still give the effect of fuller lashes.

Take a highlight color. Use this under your brow and to blend.

Curl your lashes and apply mascara. Make sure to get both your top and bottom lashes. ;)

For blush,I would recommend going with a warm plum color,which is always in for fall. This one is from Smashbox,but I know MAC also has some good ones. :) Any blush that warms up your face will do.

For lips,I would recommend going with a tad darker lipstick since the eyes are so neutral.

And then if you want to use gloss,go with something that is pretty sheer but will still give your lips a nice glow. :)

I hope you guys enjoyed this school/fall inspired tutorial! :)
