I'm gonna show you my minimal makeup for school!
A young face shouldn't be caked in makeup, so we're going to skip an all over foundation, and use the basics to make your face prettier, without letting people notice that you're actually wearing makeup.
Now, let's start and take the first step!
Toning your face: The best toner for any skin type would be a splash of cold water.
I personally splash my face with cold water, 5 times, right after waking up!
It minimizes the pores and gives you a smoother skin texture. Beside that, it also refreshes your mind!
Let's moisturise our face. As for a moisturiser or base, you could also use, like me, a peach smelling sunscreen with a Sun protection factor of 50, in a pink bottle! I usually warm the lotion up between my fingers and then press it into my skin.
This right now, is a really important step! Otherwise your makeup will be kind of flaky.
Moisturiser helps keeping the texture of your makeup even and smooth.
Sun protection can be used during all seasons to protect yourself from UV rays and avoid premature aging.
Usually my bangs are getting in the way, that's why use Japanese hair styling patches to take my hair back! They are really handy and easy to store...and of course - pink!
Use a corrector in your skin tone to cover dark circles. Apply the product close to your lash line,looking upwards helps now. And blend on all dark areas of your eye. Don't forget the inner eye corner.
Cover blemishes and the reddish areas around your nose and chin with the corrector. Concealers are definitely a no-go for covering blemishes, as they are yellow toned and it will look awkward. Correctors are pink toned and they brighten your face.
Apply concealer over the corrector to lighten the dark are under your eye. Blend by pressing the concealer in the skin with your fingers. I prefer using my finger instead of a sponge, as I find that the warmth the finger contains help blending the product.
Then, set the concealer and corrector under your eye with powder. Also powder your eyelids.
Your forehead might be shiny, so apply a bit of powder there, too.
I'm using one of those handy eyebrow pencils, which include an eyebrow brush on their cover.
Just draw along the shape of your eyebrows with the pencil, as if you were drawing. Then get the brush and set the small hairs in their position. Well groomed eyebrows have a large effect on your eyes.
Mascara is a basic in every minimal makeup, but for school, one coat should be enough to make your eyes look brighter and bigger.
Avoid using lipstick, but use sheer lipgloss with a soft, natural colour like this orange here. Neither use strong colours if you wear braces, or else you will draw too much attention on them, so take care!
I usually leave my hair open and twist on both sides a strand of hair in and fix it with a bobby pin, but not with a black one, I use a white one so it doesn't stand out in my fair hair.
I recommend wearing transparent nail polish for school as it looks really nice and strengthens your nails. A simple base coat and a top coat should do it.
I hope that I helped you with this information!
Thank you for watching and see you in my next video!
