Adapting your makeup to the occasion as well as your age is a must if you wish to look absolutely fabulous, as these criteria can have a significant impact over your look. School makeup needs to be appropriate and radiate naturalness, but natural makeup doesn’t mean boring. Check out the following trendy school makeup ideas and inspire yourself for your next fab school look.

Daytime makeup differs from evening makeup mostly through the intensity of the colors used, so if you want to look fabulous during the day, you should opt for neutral, soft hues that complement your skin tone, enhancing it subtly. Since naturalness is a highly popular makeup trend, you can inspire yourself and adapt it to your style and create a trendy school makeup look that makes you radiate beauty:

Before applying a tinted moisturizer, it’s best to neutralize any blemishes using a concealer. This will ensure your skin looks perfect, as the beauty of flawless looking skin cannot be topped. Use a sheer gold glitter eye makeup to add a glow to your eyes, but apply it softly so the eyelid doesn’t look “heavy” in gold. The effects should be subtle, just enough to make the eyes stand out as light hits the eyelid. You can use glittery pink or pearl as well if you desire, as the effect will be equally fabulous. Finish the look by curling the eyelashes and apply a coat of brown/black mascara to make your eyelashes stand out more. Apply a touch of blush to your cheeks preferably in peach or pink so they’ll receive a natural definition.

An almost bare makeup look can be a perfect choice especially if your school is very restricted as far as makeup is concerned. Bare or minimal makeup is highly popular this year, so you’ll not only look great, but you’ll also sport one of the hottest trends in makeup. Conceal any blemishes and apply a tinted moisturizer to create the appearance of flawless skin. Add a touch of pink blush to the cheeks, curl the eyelashes and coat them with one coat of mascara and apply a sheer lip gloss or lip balm to your lips to make them look and feel soft.

Pink is definitely one hot color this season, so don’t be afraid to use it whether it’s fashion or makeup you’re talking about. There are a variety of pink hues available to choose from, but if you want to look fabulous and not tacky (as this is a school makeup), you need to opt for a soft, pale pink shimmery eye makeup palette. Apply a tinted moisturizer to get a uniform skin tone, contour (softly) the lash line using a black eyeliner pencil and apply the pink eye shadow on your eyelid, making sure that you’re not going too high. Coat your eyelashes with mascara, apply a touch of blush to your cheeks and apply a nude lipgloss to complete your stylish makeup.
