The other day I wrote about some great beauty products to get you ready for back to school. Today I want to continue that and share with you some of my favorite makeup items for back to school season. These are a few of the things that I am loving right now and that I think would be helpful for back to school season.
The first items are eye shadow palettes. There are two in particular that are out now that have peaked my attention that I think anyone would love. One is the SHE WEARS IT WELL Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills. It is a perfect mix of 9 matte and shimmery eyeshadows that are all neutral enough to wear everyday or make and evening smokey eye look from. The palette retails for $34 and is a great value for the quality and convenience of this palette.
The next palette (or set) I should say is the new Majestic Jungle Collection by Glow Minerals. This is a beautiful fall makeup set that comes with a cute makeup bag, gloss and eye makeup palette complete with 8 rich fall colors and 2 eyeliners. This is one of the most gorgeous fall eye shadow palettes I have seen. My only gripe about it is that the colors although rich and pigmented, have a little fallout when you swipe your brush in there, so just be sure to tap of your brush before applying to avoid a mess. This retails for $80.
The Sigma Performance Eye Kit is a must-have brush set. You may have regular makeup brushes, but do you have the performance eye brushes? These are tiny precise brushes that are great for anyone who wants to create more precise eye looks, or if you have smaller eyes these are perfect size for you to contour and create precise definition between multiple shadow eye looks. This kit comes with 8 brushes and retails for $55.
As you might know already, I love BB creams. And, I think everyone should have one. The Loreal youth Code BB cream is a really great drugstore buy if you’re looking to try one. Those of you who don’t like to wear a lot of foundation or just want a quick easy one step product to apply, this is your answer, it evens out your skin, illuminates skin, perfects flaws, moisturizes, corrects and provides spf 15. I would recommend this for anyone who has normal, combination or dry skin. Since it illuminates it may make oil skin look more oily. Check it out , it retails for around $16.99 at most drugstores.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what some of my makeup picks were for back to school beauty. If you have any questions about the items above, leave them in the comments below or e-mail me.
