Back to School Preparation: Multi-Tasking, Budget-Busting Back to School Beauty Tips


OK, so we all know it’s back to school soon! And while you might be delighted, downright depressed or have mixed feelings about this, there is one thing I know. We all want to look our best. We all want to know that we have a few pieces or items that are totally up-to-the-minute!


Smart Girls

BUT, our budgets while at school aren’t huge, we have to be super smart with our money and use products that really give a great bang for our buck! Not to mention those early school mornings – there is no time for long, time consuming hair, skin and makeup rituals – its go go go gals!

Soft and Pretty

So, to look cool for school, you don’t want to go overboard with your makeup. Soft and pretty should do the trick nicely! You want to cover up any blemishes (not that you probably have any), accentuate your eyes and keep lips and cheeks soft and pretty, for an everyday look. There’ll be days and occasions when you want a bit more drama, but let’s stick to a natural everyday look for this article! Oh, and of course, items that don’t break the bank!

With your young, fresh skin, you won’t need much more than bareMinerals Bareskin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer – a silky smooth, complete coverage concealer and serum in one. Designed to provide remarkable coverage with an ultra-light texture, bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer instantly covers the appearance of dark circles, discoloration and other imperfections for a beautifully even-toned complexion. Formulated with antioxidant Lilac Plant Stem Cells and nourishing ingredients like Soil Minerals and Glycerin, this concealer gives skin a brightened, lustrous finish and hydrating humectants to help nourish the under-eye area.
