Back To School Beauty

The end of summer break is almost around the corner and school will be back in session before we know it! Since pouting won't make it all better, might as well start preparing your shopping list! We all know that once school starts we won't have the same amount of leisure time. Here are some key items to master your 5-minute beauty routine, that will make you look like you spent hours getting ready!

Bronzed Skin:
Keep that summer tan glow longer by using bronzers! They are a great way to accentuate your tan and to give you that sun-kissed glow year round. For an all-over body color, use a self tanner the night before on any areas that need a summer glow.

Fluttery Lashes:
Nothing makes your eyes stand out like bold lashes. Whether you are looking for length, volume, or both there is definitely a formula for you! Getting plenty of sleep during the night is key and once school starts, it won’t be so easy. Every minute counts, so skip your waterproof mascara if possible-you won't spend so much time trying to remove it later.

Smooth Lips:
Tinted lip balms are your best friend during the mornings when you are running late! Instead of worrying about adding the perfect lip liner, lipstick, and lip gloss, opt for a tinted lip balm. They are sheer enough so you don't need a mirror to apply but still give a polished look and brighten up your face!

Natural Waves:
Instead of waking up before the crack of dawn to wash, blow dry and style your hair, here's an easy shortcut! Wash your hair the night before, let it air dry until its about 50% dry, put in a silky hair serum/oil or cream to add some shine (if you hair is super fine, add a texturizing cream) and put it in a braid. Let it set overnight, in the morning gently take out the braid and lightly run your fingers through your hair (don't use any brush as this can cause some frizz). Add some more serum if needed and there you have it- simple, natural, and beachy waves! You can add some hairspray to help the look last all day.
