Back to School Beauty Routine


Hello lovelies!

As my time here at college progresses, I have since realized the importance of getting ready quickly. When you are up late studying, you don’t have time to worry about looking perfect for class. However, I do understand the struggle of wanting to look good. Here are some of my must have beauty products and tips that will help you look like a beauty in no time:

·      Concealer: This is a must have when attempting to get ready after a late night up studying. Stress and lack of sleep can seriously affect your complexion. Take a little concealer and dab it on your problem spots (under your eyes, on newly formed breakouts, etc.). Then, even this out with your fingers or a brush. Ta-da! You’re looking better already.
o   I use: Covergirl Invisible Concealer in the shade Fair
·      Foundation: Apply a light amount of foundation over your face to brighten up and finish making your skin look a bit clearer. I also apply a finishing powder on top of this to help prevent my skin from getting too oily (my skin is naturally quite oily; I feel your pain).
o   I use: Covergirl Clean Oil Control foundation in the shade 505 (ivory) & the Covergirl Clean Oil Control pressed powder in 510 (Classic Ivory)
·      Mascara: Nothing like a little mascara to make your eyes look wide awake in the morning! I first use an eyelash curler to prep my eyelashes. Then, I swipe on the mascara, and my eyes look instantly more awake.
o   I use: Covergirl Lashblast Fusion in Very Black
·      Eyeliner: Apply a slight line on the outer corner of your top lash line. I just recently started using this, and it makes my eyes appear more open. I typically use black liner. However, I recently found that an olive green color makes my eyes really pop! Look into trying something new with your make-up routine; it makes getting ready a lot more enjoyable.
o   I use: Covergirl Perfect Point Plus in 200 (Black Onyx) and Covergirl Exact Eyelights in 715 (Majestic Jade)
·      Lips: Throw on a bit of bright color on your lips to make them pop! (It also makes you look like you took longer to get ready when you really didn’t!)
o   I use: Maybelline New York Color Whisper in the shade 50 (Cherry on Top)
I hope this post will help you while you get ready for school! What is your everyday school look, and what are your must-have products? Tweet me your pictures and products to @Maggie_Dickman, or comment below.

  6. Great post Sparkles :) I also wanted to ask you for some eyeliner tips. Which color would make brown eyes pop more? I normally use black but I haven´t tried anything else new lately so I don´t know if something else would work better.
    You´re doing great! Keep it up so I can improve my sense of fashion :P

    1. Hiiii Almu! Thank you so much girl! :) One color I would try with your gorgeous brown eyes would be a blue shade! Navy blue is a subtle change from black, but I think it could be gorgeous with your eyes! I have read that almost any color could go with brown eyes, so I would even try a deep purple just to be crazy! (I have a purple one and I haven't worn it very much, but it seems super fun!) Thank you so much for commenting! :)
