Welcome to the month of cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and back to school! Consider this your go-to beauty guide for back to school heading into… Dare we say the F word? FALL.
Let’s talk makeup ideas! This fall, think “clean girl” makeup. This look is all the rave right now, and it’s easy to achieve with just a few simple products. It’s the perfect go-to makeup look for back to school.
First, start with skin. Going into September, our natural summer tan is probably starting to fade a little bit, but not to worry! If you find yourself wanting a little bit more colour, or looking to even out your tan, try NUDA’s incredible self-tanning products. For the body, go in with 1-2 pumps of the NUDA self-tanning mousse and apply with the NUDA tanning mitt for the most even-looking tan. For the face, we absolutely LOVE this NUDA self-tanning water. To apply, just spray like you would your makeup setting spray and allow a few hours for it to develop. We suggest applying before you go to bed and voilà! You’ll wake up with a golden, sun-kissed glow, which is one of our fav feelings in the entire world!! Not to mention, NUDA products smell incredible (no funky self-tanner smells!), and they are vegan, cruelty-free, and made without parabens, sulphates or gluten. YAY, #cleangirl check!
Next, let’s talk skin prep. To ensure your skin is nice and hydrated, go in with a hydrating serum and moisturizer such as our Poetry in Potion Serum and Daydream Rosewater Cream. Packed with hyaluronic acid and 24k gold, our Poetry in Potion serum is great for all skin types and is perfect for reducing redness and inflammation, while deeply hydrating the skin. Follow with the Daydream Rosewater Cream, which is a moisture-packed gel cream infused with Squalane and Vitamin C to nourish the skin and stimulate collagen production. Oh, and did we mention these beauties are also vegan, cruelty-free, and non-comedogenic?! 😉
Quick tip: let your skincare sit for about 10-15 minutes in order to allow absorption and prevent texture or pilling when applying your makeup.
Makeup time! Start with our Perk-Up Concealer Pen. Twist, brush on, and then blend out. Apply to any dark areas that need a little brightening and lifting, such as the under-eye area, outer corner of the eye, under the brow, and around the nose. Blend lightly with a small brush or a beauty blender.
Next, go in with our Chisel Me Contour Stick on a soft brush to add a little dimension and a sun-kissed look. Apply to your cheekbones, forehead, and jawline—but keep in mind, a little bit goes a long way! Follow with a cream blush such as Almost Famous for that perfect natural flush on the cheeks. Simply dab it on with your fingers for the most perfect blend. Set very lightly with our Flawless Blotting Powder to avoid shine and ensure longevity throughout the day!
Next, lift, fill and set the brows with our Browmance Gel. Just brush your brows up and diagonally to create a naturally filled brow. Toss on your favourite mascara, and finally, hydrate and give your lips a little tint with one of our Coquette Lipslicks—Juliet for a gorgeous soft pink tint, Outspoken for a beautiful berry tint, or Forbidden Fruit for a pretty peachy tint!
There you go, an easy 7-step makeup routine for an everyday #fancified back to school makeup look!
Finally, let’s talk hair! Here are a few easy back to school hairstyles that you can throw together quickly. Claw clips are everything at the moment! Using a claw clip, you can create an easy half-up, half-down hairstyle or an effortless updo if you’d prefer your hair out of the way all day.
Cute scrunchies are another easy way to throw yourself together. These cute scrunchies are the perfect addition to a half-up, half-up hairstyle or a cute bun!
