School Makeup: Dos and Donts

School Makeup: Dos

Hey there, fabulous high schoolers! Let's talk about school makeup that's as fresh as a spring breeze. We're all about keeping it natural for your back-to-school makeup game. Think of it as a simple makeup routine that'll make you look like you woke up like this (even if you didn't).

So, what's the deal? Start with a light-coverage foundation or tinted moisturizer. No need to go all cakey-cakey here. We want you to rock a natural look that's perfect for the school year.

Now, say hello to your secret weapon – concealer! It's like your bestie in a tube. Use it smartly to hide those blemishes, redness, or under-eye circles. Blend it in like a pro, and voila – you've got a flawless finish. Perfect for those school selfies, right?

But wait, there's more! Your brow game needs to be on point. Groom those eyebrows, high school style. Grab a brow pencil or some powder and fill in those sparse areas. You'll be framing your face like a pro, adding a touch of sophistication to your back-to-school makeup.

Now, let's talk mascara. It's pure magic for your eyes. Want those peepers to pop? Mascara is the answer. High school students, this is your ticket to brighter, more awake-looking eyes. Trust us; it's a must in your school makeup routine.

Thinking about eyeliner? Keep it subtle, my friends. A delicate line along your upper lash line is all you need. No need for drama in the classroom, right? We're all about simplicity when it comes to school makeup.

Lips! Go for lip colors that mimic your natural shade. Tinted lip balm or nude lipstick – it's like a school-friendly secret weapon. High school students, this is your chance to keep it simple yet totally polished.

And last but not least, finish it all off with setting spray. Lock in that gorgeous school makeup, especially on those long school days. Your makeup will stay fresh and fabulous throughout the day.

School Makeup Don'ts

Alright, beautiful people, let's talk about what not to do when it comes to school makeup. Save the drama for special occasions; school isn't the red carpet, after all.

First off, no heavy contouring, bold smoky eyes, or glitter explosions for school. Let's reserve those looks for the weekend parties and events, shall we?

Say no to the cakey look. You don't need to layer on the foundation like you're building a house. Keep it light and natural; you'll thank us later.

Bright neon colors? As fun as they are, they can be a bit distracting in the classroom. For school makeup, go for more subdued shades and save the neon for your Friday night shenanigans.

Mascara lovers, don't overdo it. Clumpy lashes? No, thank you. If you need to separate and define, a lash comb is your best friend. School makeup, but make it clean and polished.

Lipliner should complement your lip color, not compete with it. No need to go all '90s supermodel on us. Keep it balanced and natural.

Skincare is your base layer for makeup, so don't skip it. Cleanse, moisturize, and sunscreen up. Healthy skin is the secret to fabulous school makeup. Learn more about skincare tips on Stansout Beauty blogs.

And for the love of clear pores, remove your makeup before bedtime. We know you're busy being awesome but sleeping in makeup can lead to those pesky breakouts. Make it a nightly routine, high schoolers, and keep that skin glowing all year long!

Stay fabulous, stay fabulous, and have an amazing school year!
