Dollies may wonder what they’re gonna come up for their dazzling debut when reuniting peers and teachers after long, fantastic holidays. Of course, that shouldn’t be too much to draw awkward attention and carry uncomfortable feelings during class activities. Let’s hit our crush with natural, fabulous back to school makeup for teenagers or college students, super quick and weightless. Moreover, I’ll walk us through affordable cosmetic products to kick off the sessions in style.
For our glamor, girls! You need to take care of your skin. Heading outdoors might drive complexion badly and make us leave important regimen behind. It’s inclined to be dehydrated and suffer from destructive UV rays, especially sunspots. It’s necessary to treat them; if not, they can grow and become hard to be removed. Start with chemical peels at least once a week to slough off dull, dead skin cells clumped on the skin’s upper layers holding blotchy, brown discoloration. They usually contain glycolic acid and/or salicylic acid.
Try medical-grade skincare products, also called cosmeceuticals which are clinically proven to be very friendly toward skin. They have active ingredients penetrating into skin layers and resolve pesky problems. They should be formulated with topical retinoid (Retin-A) and/or Hydroquinones to lighten skin pigment. Moisturizing is must-do to plump up and revitalize complexion.
It would be great to consist of a little anti-aging ingredients, particularly vitamins C and E that tends to speed up skin’s self-restorability. In fact, teenage girls don’t need to topically use high amount of age-defying elements that are more likely to cause side effects.
Acne is public enemy to adolescents when reaching puberty. In spite of stepping into early adulthood, acne can still easily creep into your skin. So, go for oil-free and noncomedogenic to avoid clogging pores and aggravating the situation. Primer is gonna be your saver so grab it! It can help you to refine pores and control sebum production pretty well, while hydrating your skin beneath the makeup. At the same time, it creates an effective barrier that prevent makeup absorbed into skin.
If you have type of very oily, blemish-prone skin, pick the product having BHA’s (salicylic acid) to get rid of oily traces. Moreover, stay away from primers giving you illuminating effect or adding up shine. Therefore, matte finish is your go-to. Some girls usually get pimples and sensitivity because of environment aggressors, choose the products having soothing effect instead of harsh ingredients. Also, primers with green pigment is inclined to neutralize redness as well as dark spots.
I recommend using Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer to reduce overactive sebum production; but, remember to apply moisturizer underneath to stay hydrated. On the other hand, Nuance Salma Hayek Color and Correct CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF20 is safe for teenagers and young adults to effortlessly cover redness as well as give smooth, dreamy texture.
3. BB Cream or CC Cream
Next, for a flawless appearance, we can’t even forget putting foundation on. Otherwise BB and CC creams or tinted moisturizers are more suitable for high schoolers and college students than foundation. They’re more likely to provide skincare concern, such as hydrating and calming properties with a sheer to medium coverage. BB and CC creams are designed giving less coverage than foundation; otherwise, tend to deliver natural, breathable makeup for delicate skins. Young adult’s skin can suffer from lots of dark spots or acne scars, CC cream is prone to color correcting action. Get the shade that crucially matches with your skin tone; face and body are supposed to have same color, not lighter or darker.
Foundation is preferable to professional makeup. It may bring about thick, heavy feeling onto skin and hence, block your pores. Similar to primer, you gotta choose non-acnegenic and oil-free formulas. When being in university, my skin was kinda oily; then, Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control or IOPE Air Cushion Matte Longwear were my babies. They’re both literally lightweight, leaving beautiful texture, evened out skin tone and good sun protection without arousing breakouts. Additionally, these two deliver a semi-matte finish which restores healthy radiance onto the surface.
Besides the cushions, Covergirl Smoothers BB cream is a combination of tinted moisturizer and sun protection. Teenagers are gonna fall in love with it’s weightless coverage and seamless texture for a “no-makeup” look.
In case of having lots of stubborn flaws, concealer is an instant solution for us. Instead of using full-coverage foundation all over your face, It’s more likely to cause heavy sensation onto skin and clog your pores. You could take conceal upon places needed to be covered up, such as whopping lumps or zits and racoon eyes. Pick concealer two shades lighter than your skin tone. One more thing, softly pat eye cream to under eye circles to smooth out skin of eye areas as well as prevent concealer from creasing in the middle of day.
Concealer also helps to bring out facial features. I don’t really encourage high schoolers to apply too much concealer on face daily. It may work at best to necessarily hide the certain imperfections for such a young age rather than get fussy work. However, to slay the first day of school with perfect, stunning appearance, I’m gonna take easy on it. It’s incredible to handle the problems with concealer stick. I can slightly run it down to my nose and up along cheekbone for triangle form to plump up the dark, shallow areas under eyes as well as lighten discoloration around my nose. Also, do some strokes upon forehead, upper lips and chin. Eventually, blend all of them out totally.
The No Filter Concealer of ColourPop has just come out in this year. The product is highly pigmented and very long-wearing in many freakin’ shades. Or, Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer is infused by moisturizing and brightening properties to diminish the appearance of redness or dark spots.
5. Contour Powder
To set everything in place for whole day, finishing or setting powder is capable of doing that. Otherwise, I won’t suggest this to our high schoolers and young college students. We did apply the mattifying primer beneath; so, applying powder all over your face can cause caked-on and dull looking skin with lack of natural radiance. You can pick contouring powder with bunch of light and dark shades.
Use fluffy powder brush to blend a light shade onto places where you apply concealer to keep the highlight for long lasting. After that, get a medium slanted brush to pick dark shade, like deep brown to contour your cheekbones as well as lightly carry straight into hair lines to trace the temples. It’s like you got striking sunkissed tan after long summer. Additionally, draw two lines down sides of your nose to make it look slender; also, go down and round out tip of nose to look less horny. Give it a bit to your jawlines
Well, I think young age doesn’t need too much contour. a natural, healthy look is always what they need. Contour Diaries Palette of Pur Cosmetics provides 6-piece shades that you face looks like sculpted.
6. Blush and Bronzer
I’d love to make a pinky, peachy blush onto my cheeks. That will be really adorable and lovely. Covergirl Instant Cheekbones Contouring blush is very affordable cost to provide a peachy pink with subtle shimmer. To add more tempting glow, you can use fingertips to tap gently bronzer or metallic highlight on the highest points of your cheekbones. Also, do the same onto tip of your nose and cupid’s bow. That delivers an astounding shine to make your face pop out. Rimmel London 3 in 1 Shimmering Bronzer is available in 2 shades with soft luminosity.
Reddish brown, champagne and coral pink are genuinely wearable shades to youngblood that won’t age you up. That tends to accentuate your eyes, renew yourself with peppy, energetic appearance and strip off fatigue on you. Complicated, too dark eyeshadow makeup is absolutely no-go when heading school. You may not want to look older than your teachers.
Start a satin champagne shade all over the way up to the brows. I go for warm, medium brown that set into crease; blend out in windscreen wiper motion. To emphasize the eye dimension, slightly dab deep copper brown to outer half of the lid and swirl it up to crease for V shape. Also, apply into lower lash line. Then, shimmer goldish shade is gonna be my favorite which is pressed into the centre and inner half of the lid.
Replace the deep reddish brown, I can also do a dark, matte green shade to the outer crease and lower lash lines. Gradually blend it out. After that, dab a light coral pink to centre of the lid; in addition, glittery golden shade to the inner corner of the lid. You can find the dark green shade with NYX Hot Single Eyeshadow in Kush.
8. Eyeliner and Mascara
Eyeliner is my teenage addiction. At that time, my technique was very clumsy; always end up with a big mess. Softly draw a black thin line from the inner corner and lay down a bit more intensity at the end. It’s great to leave a small flick at the end; but, don’t give it too much. False eyelashes may be exaggerative for high schoolers. Well, instead, mascara is enough to create a full, sculpted looking lashes.
Brows need to be grown naturally at such young age. I think you don’t have to pluck it. Let your eyebrows feel free to grow. Use brow pencil to do “flick of the wrist” that results in hair-like strokes and fills in sparse areas of your brows. Comb your brows up with tinted brow gel for more definition and hue. Instant Brow Pencil of Benefit Cosmetics gives seamless texture to amazingly mimic hair.
Eventually, fill in your lips with light, sweet colors, like coral pink or nude for elegant, charming touch. If you have beloved everyday makeup lipstick. So, just keep it up. Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in No.101, 102 and 103 are my ideal choices to hit the first day of school.
