Last week I shared some clothes that are essential for back to school (read here), and today I’ve rounded up my top 7 back to school beauty essentials. These are all products that I’ve used for years and that I definitely cannot live without! If you use all these products together you can create the perfect makeup look for the first day!
I’ve talked about this product countless times here on the blog, but it’s seriously a holy grail product. I apply a little bit of it to each eyelid and it keeps my eyeshadow looking great all day! No creasing or oily lids.
I have quite a few eyeshadow palettes, but if you’re looking for a pretty neutral one to get for back to school, I think you should go with this one. The shadows are beautiful and go on so smoothly. There is also a great range of shades so you can create both daytime and nighttime looks.
I go through mascara pretty quickly so I tend to stick with an affordable one from the drugstore (maybe one day I will try another high end one…any recommendations?). I know people are very particular with their mascara, but this one from Maybelline has been my absolute favorite for the past two years.
In the past, I’ve occasionally worn lip gloss or lipstick to school, but for the most part I like to stick with a moisturizing lip balm. This one is my absolute favorite! It feels so smooth on the lips and keeps them moisturized all day long. Plus it has a light lemon scent.
Naturally my brows are pretty full, but I love the way they look filled in. After trying a few different brow products I found the brow wiz and have stuck with it ever since. While I go through one of these every month or so, it is totally worth it!
I switch up which blush I wear on the daily, but I always go back to this one. It’s a beautiful peachy beige with gold pearl and it looks good on a variety of skin tones.
Lets be real…being a student often involves staying up late to finish homework or put the finishing touches on a paper or project. The lack of sleep can lead to dark circles under your eyes that are not cute. To combat this, I love using this brightening concealer under my eyes. I apply it, blend it out with a damp beautyblender, and set it with some translucent powder.
What are your essentials? Please share because I love trying new products!
