Au natural

24 Aug 2015

I go back to school in rougly two weeks which I am freaking about since I will offically be in year eleven (ekkkk) My school has a 'no makeup' policy, but if its subtle, natural and 'un-noticable' then they don't mind.  So instead of showing you a look that I can’t relate to, I thought to myself why not just show my everyday makeup for school. Which you can also tone up or down to your own liking.  

I first use my Mac Concealer to cover my dark circles, as I don’t wear foundation, using a concealer to cover up any blemishes gives you more of the au natural look. I then set my concealer with the Prep and Prime translucent powder from Mac to ensure my concealer stays on the whole school day without creasing. I had the The Roller Lash by Benefit mascara applied on me when it first came out with a few too many coats which lead it to be super clumpy and heavy on my lashes. Which was why I was quite skeptical purchasing this, however with one or so coats, it provides length and volume without the clump.I then use my Clinque Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry, which is a similar shade to my natural lip colour however has a light berry tint, to finish this au natural perfect school makeup look.




Whats is your ‘go to’ school makeup look?

  3. This is such a natural look, my school also says no make up but if it's subtle then they don't really mind.

  6. Need to try the chubby sticks, my mum wanted to buy them at duty free but instead bought her favourite Lancôme blush. I had the Benefit Roller Lash tested on me as well but I hated it as it felt like I had weights on my eyelashes haha but next time I'll ask the lady to apply it a little more light handed!

    1. I agree, I think you would be better off testing it out your self. Because I really hate the clumpy look she done on me, that was why I was hesitant! You should really try the Chubby sticks especially in duty free

  7. I usually get up, throw my hair up and get out the door with nothing on my face.. If I look a disaster obviously I'll do something, but I really want to get into making a bit more of an effort to look nice for school!! Lovely post, loving the background oooohhh ;)

    We are allowed to wear makeup in our school (I'm from the Czech Republic) but I use just a mascara, concealer and a powder.

  10. I had no idea schools had makeup policies! My school doesn't have any rules as to what you wear/look like (though the unspoken one is "don't have anything hanging out"), it's so nice to not have to worry about whether you pass any absurd tests to not "distract" guys from learning.

    I love how natural and easy your makeup routine sounds, though I would've loved to see some pictures! I don't usually wear makeup because I have PE first thing in the morning, but all I do is concealer, foundation, and lip balm! (:

    1. Unfortunately in the Uk most school do have makeup policies (criesssss), I do hate it when I hear my american friends talk about how they are not allowed to wear a piece of clothing item because it can distract guys!! Like whattt?

      If you mean a picture of me wearing the makeup, I think I’ll update one (so you can make sure and check this post out again) ;)
