Tutorial: 5 Minute Natural Back to School Look (cheap!)

Over the past weeks I've frequently been asked to do natural looks and back to school looks. So I thought I'd satisfy everyones requests in one with a natural back to school look. I know when I was at school I just wanted to sleep in the morning and in all honesty didn't really wear much make-up. But times are changing and everyone seems to be wearing it now, so I've come up with this quick look for you using some cheap but quality products.

Base - MUA BB Cream - Light (£4, Superdrug & MUA's Website) 
Blush - Natural Collection Blush - Rosey Glow (£1.99, Boots) 

Primer - ELF Eyelid Primer (£1.50, ELF's Website) 
Eyeshadows - ELF Flawless Eyeshadow - Tantalizing Taupe (£2.50, ELF's Website) 
Eyeliner - Collection (2000) Lasting Colour Gel Liner - Black (£4.99, Boots & Superdrug)
Mascara - NYC Showtime Volumizing Mascara - Black (£1.99, Superdrug) 
Brows - MUA Eyebrow Pencil - Blonde (£1, Superdrug & MUA's Website)  

Tinted Balm - Sleek Pout Polish - Sugar May (Discontinued colour, other shades available from Sleeks Website & Superdrug for £4.49) 

You may have noticed that the settings are slightly different in the post and video. And that is because I was having a very special moment and actually forgot to take any after I filmed and had to doll up with this look again. I assure you it's the same make-up though. And hope you don't mind!

Anyway to all of those going back to school soon, I really hope you have a good year and get some grades you're proud of. Good luck and speak to you again soon, Hannah

  1. Your eyelashes are so long!!
    I never really got the "back to school" looks, I only started wearing makeup when I was 15, and I finished school then! I guess it's more an american thing :P

    1. Thanks lovely :) I never wore that much make-up at school. If I remember correctly it was always just one colour - black, turquoise or red with mascara. I was such a kool kid haha! But I've had a few requests so I thought I ought to get one up!

  2. This looks lovely on you xxx

  3. Very soft and pretty :) I never wore much makeup to school either, maybe just powder or tinted moisturizer. But there were definitely girls who wore full face makeup daily, so I guess it just depends on the person

    1. Thanks Catherine, and yes absolutely. It was like that at my school too!


I really appreciate all your lovely comments and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. But if you want a quick response try tweeting me, @MidnightViolet1 Thanks for reading my post, Hannah :)
