For a lot of people, today is the first day back to school. I normally do a back to school beauty post even though I have been out of school for a while now, so I wanted to keep the tradition alive. This year is a bit different, though. I actually am headed back to school. It’s been a good seven years since I’ve been in school so this is going to be quite a change, but I’m looking forward to it! So, here are my top picks for back to school beauty:
My first pick really needs no introduction! A Beauty Blender is my favourite way to apply my foundation and concealer. It gives me the perfect coverage and is really easy to use!
This new foundation from Laura Mercier gives my skin a gorgeous glow without being too over the top, which I love. It’s a medium coverage foundation that covers imperfections without looking caked on. It feels so comfortable and hydrating too, which is always nice. Plus, it wears throughout the day really well!
These highlighters from Becca are my absolute favourite! “Moonstone” is my personal favourite, but there are an assortment of other shades to choose from too. These highlighters give such a pretty glow and help me look more awake, which is always a good thing!
I have been reaching for this eyeshadow palette a lot lately. There are so many pretty shades to choose from and it’s easy to make both subtle and smoky looks using this palette. The shades blend effortlessly and have the perfect pigmentation!
Voluminous lashes are my dream, and this serum helps me get there. A small amount applied each night before bed promotes lash thickness and growth which is amazing!
I am so obsessed with this mascara! It makes my lashes look so thick and full – I seriously can’t get enough! It also wears really well throughout the day and never smudges, clumps, or flakes.
If you’re looking to keep your summer tan going for as long as possible, these options from L’Oreal are sure to help! You can choose from traditional bronzing mousse or super convenient towelettes to keep you looking bronzed.
As the days and evenings get busier, I think it’s always a good idea to have makeup wipes on hand. They make removing makeup a breeze and these ones from L’Oreal feel so soothing and nourishing on my skin while doing an amazing job of removing stubborn mascara.
These sulphate-free formulas are also vegan, which is pretty cool! They both smell incredible and are doing wonders for managing my frizz. I love how sleek and shiny this shampoo and condition makes my hair!
These two products from Shu Uemura smell amazing and do a great job adding definition and hold to your hair. I recently got some layers put in, so I love how the pomade adds definition to my hair!
