Natural School Makeup Tutorial

Hello beauties! Today I have my first makeup tutorial and it is a natural school makeup tutorial. This is what I wear most days to school as it is quite discrete and minimal. My school doesn't really allow much makeup so I have to make sure it is discrete and looks natural.
The first step is to prime your face. I use the Benefit Porefessional and it just smoothed out my skin and makes my pores less visible. I don't like wearing foundation to school as it can feel quite heavy, sometimes I might wear BB cream. But I think if you're trying to look me you're wearing no makeup it's best to keep things minimal. Therefore, I just use concealer. No surprises here I am using the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer on any blemishes or red areas. I then use another concealer which is the Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer. This concealer is one where you twist the bottom and the product comes out through a brush at the top. I use this under my eyes on any blemishes as it is nice and brightening. To prevent my concealer from slipping and sliding during the day, I use the Natural Collection Pressed Powder. This helps to reduce shine on my face as well. For blush, I think a natural matte colour will be best. I use the Natural Collection Blush in Dusky Pink on the apples of my cheeks.

My school doesn't actually allow eyeliner or eyeshadow, just mascara. Therefore I prefer to use a brown mascara as it is a lot lot lot more natural and subtle. I use the Rimmel Soft Kajal Eyeliner in Sable on the outer lash line and a tiny bit on the bottom lash line. I put it in the corner and then smudge it across so it isn't heavy. If you aren't allowed mascara, then I recommend using the Benefit Bad Gal as it is very natural and not clumpy whatsoever. However, if you are allowed, then try a lengthening mascara, I like to use the Maybelline One by One Mascara. I might even add another mascara for added volume.

Normally, schools don't allow lipstick, but I like to use a tinted lip balm or a sheer lip gloss just to add a little bit of colour to my lips. The Maybelline a Baby Lips in Cherry Me is a great sheer cherry red. However, this can look quite unnatural if you use too much and you do not want to get in trouble. A lip gloss is another option, I like the Benefit Coralista Lip Gloss as it comes out really natural and it's hardly noticable. You do not have to wear any of this if you do not want to.
