All Drugstore Makeup for Middle Schoolers
Really long time no see, to all of my lovely readers! I have just been so busy more than any other months and I was just having so much stress and many problems. Now since it is the weekend and I am in such a good mood that most of my stress and problems are over, I decided to do a makeup tutorial. This will be an "all drugstore makeup for middle school" and of course you do not have to be in middle school to wear this. You can be any age to wear this much makeup, but I wouldn't suggest to wear this much if you are younger than a middle school age. Anyway, I am going to stop rambling and lets come and get onto the actual tutorial.
1.) First thing first, start off by moisturizing your face with Clean & Clear FINISHES Pore Perfecting Moisturizer SPF 15 to your desire. Make sure to get your ears and neck as well, not just your face. Than, wait for about 30 seconds after you apply the moisturizer, so that your face will let time for it to get soaked in.
2.) Next, apply about a dime size amount of Palladio Herbal Foundation Primer which is of course just a regular foundation/face primer. Now this product is not exactly at the drugstore, but it is a drugstore price and you can either order it online or buy it at Sally's Beauty Supply. Than, wait for about a minute so that the primer will get work into your skin.
3.) This step is for if you have bags or under eyes circles and that is to apply either "Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller" if you have under eyes circles. And if you have bags I would suggest the "Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller" instead.
4.) Now, for face imperfections such as scarring and blemishes I recommend to apply the Maybelline SuperStay 24HR Concealer in your shades. This is my all time favorite drugstore concealer, it covers imperfections very well. So a little goes a very long way with it. Although, it might be a little to thick under your eyes.
5.) If your cheeks already have colors to it, I wouldn't say that you need a blush. But if your cheeks has no colors or if you just want a nice blush for school I would say to go for the "Revlon Cream Blushes". They have it in two shades so far and they are both really wearable and will suit most skin tone. Also, since it is a cream blush it will last throughout the day. And you can just apply it with your fingers.
6.) If your skin is oily I would say to set your face with a big fluffy powder brush with Maybelline Shine Free Oil Control Translucent Pressed Powder. Now, if your skin need just a bit more coverage than I would say to set it with Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Compact Powder Foundation with a big fluffy powder brush as well.
That is it for your face, now lets get going for your eyes.
For eyes I wouldn't say to wear any shadows, but you can wear a bit of eyeliner and mascara.
1.) For liner, I would recommend to go with a pencil liner since it is the easiest to apply. I would say to go with a brown or light colors liners, because colors and black liners will be too dramatic in my opinion. So I would recommend any Maybelline, Rimmel, Prestige, Wet n' Wild, Milani, L'Oreal and Revlon liners.
2.) For mascara, my all time favorite mascaras are by Maybelline, Covergirl and Rimmel. So any of their mascaras will do just fine. But don't forget to curl your lashes, it makes a huge difference. Revlon, ELF and Sonia Kashuk make really great eyelashes curlers.
1.) For lips, go easy, natural and elegant. So start off my moisturizing your lips with a SPF lip balm or chapstick. My favorite are by Softlips and EOS lip balms.
2.) For gloss, I would say to hands down go with Palladio Herbal Lipglosses or Revlon Colorburst Lipglosses. These are my top two favorite drugstore price lipglosses. For Palladio, I would go for shades in Pink Pearl, Champagne and See Thru for middle school. As for Revlon Colorburst Lipglosses, shades that are appropriate for middle school are Crystal Lilac, Pink Ice, Peony, Gold Dust and Rosegold.
Last but certainly not least, is to set everything with a makeup setting spray. My all time favorite drugstore is the ELF Studio Makeup Mist & Set only for $3 at Target.
That is all I have to suggest for you for an all drugstore makeup for middle school.
