Back to School Makeup

When I see the aisles of Target filling with backpacks and fresh notebooks, I feel the inner bummer of children everywhere. Summer is the best and this is often the first sign that it isn’t forever. Siiiigh. If you’re a parent though, you’re silently rejoicing inside? Maybe…just a little? It’s ok. I won’t tell.


One of the most bleh parts about back to school time are the early mornings. Having to get up and get presentable well before 8 a.m. isn’t easy or fun so I wanted to create a tutorial that was easy, fast and fresh. If you’re a high school student, I want you to keep the fresh part close to your heart. You have your whole life to go mental with black eyeliner, and trust me, you will. Enjoy this time in your life when even the most subtle of makeup looks gorgeous.
