Easy and Effortless Makeup Looks You Can’t Go Wrong With for Back to School
Summer is, unfortunately, reaching its end.
After a few months of fun vivid memories, it is time to tone it down and return to school.
Imagine this: You wake up after hitting the snooze button countless times. Your head turns and you jump up in a panic. You’ve overslept and now there is absolutely no time at all to do your makeup.
Fear not - below are some quick and easy makeup looks to manage even in the most significant time crunches before school.
A Sun-kissed Glow
Summer is traditionally a big vacation season, however, if you are unable to travel this year, let’s bring a vacation to you!
To achieve this sun-kissed glow, apply our Cream Blush ($9) to your cheeks and nose to create the illusion of sitting out in the sun. The Cream Blush can be blended using your fingers, a brush, or a makeup sponge. Beware, our Cream Blush is highly pigmented so make sure to apply in small amounts.
To add a glowy shine, make sure to use our Jelly Highlighter ($11). This jelly format highlighter applies wet and works great for precise application.
Lastly, for your lips, use our clear Lip Gloss ($8) for a dewy makeup look, or try other everyday shades such as “First Kiss,” and “Crash.” If you are looking for a fun shimmer, “Cherry Blossom,” and, “Crystal” will be what you are looking for!
Within a few minutes, you have a look leaving you glowing!
Some of us really love the color of an amazing eyeshadow look. However, they tend to be time-consuming and many people do not have time to spare in the mornings. To compensate for the lack of time, try a colorful eyeliner!
Our Eye Crayon ($6) is super wearable, creamy, and comes in a huge variety of colors that can match anyone’s style.
If you are looking for a more casual and simple sparkle, opt for the shades, “Pearl St,” “Champagne,” and “Passionate Pink.” Other than using them as regular eyeshadows, a fun and quick way to wear these eye crayons is to apply them to the inner corner of your eyes – this trick can make your eyes look larger and more awake!
An alternative for those who want to make a bolder statement are shades like, “Electric Blue,” “Greenwich V,” and “Lilac.” There are many fun and unique ways to apply the Eye Crayon. Some include under-eye liner, cat eye, and using the crayon as highlighter.
This is such an easy addition to any makeup look. It only takes mere seconds and is a fun and simple way to brighten up your makeup.
No-makeup Makeup (with just three products)
After staying up late studying for a test, anyone would love to sleep in and hit snooze one more time. When waking up for school is hard, it is best to settle for a light makeup look. A natural look will be refreshing and looks great on anyone.
First, apply our Perfecting Powder ($11) to leave your skin looking picture perfect. The powder can also be applied on top of foundation if you are looking for a fuller coverage. The best part about our Perfecting Powder is the compact with a mirror – it can fit inside your bookcase and help you get rid of any midday oil during school.
To add a healthy flush of color, use our Hydrating Liquid Blush ($10). Dab the same liquid blush to your lips to give your lips a quick tint. Our liquid blush formula is infused with Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E which help hydrate your skin and lips.
The last step is to apply our Everyday Volumizing + Lengthening Mascara ($10) to your lashes. Our mascara’s innovative tubing formula gives you perfect everyday lash look with heightened length and volume that lasts all day and doesn’t flake, smudge or run.
After a few quick minutes (and only 3 products), you are done and look entirely revived. Now you are able to walk out of the door and ace your test!
What is an easy way to brighten up any makeup look?
Lashes are able to transform any look. While mascara looks great, if you feel like you need a little extra oomph, falsies will always get you there.
We offer six unique false lashes inspired by everyday New York girls:
• Midtown Girl: Perfect for school as these lashes are subtle and natural with a feminine look
• Chelsea Girl: Because of the staggered lashes, these lashes leave you with intense volume
• SOHO Girl: If you love boho-chic glam then these full-volume lashes are perfect for you
• Upper East Side Girl: If you love New York Glamour then these voluminous flared lashes are your match
• Broadway Girl: The criss-crossed layers on these lashes leave you with an eye-opening effect. They are great after a long night studying and create the illusion of opened eyes
• Times Square Girl: If you are in search of an intense and dramatic look these lashes are designed for you
Other than being affordable (M2U NYC lashes only cost $6 a pair), the best part about these lashes is that they are synthetic and cruelty-free, meaning no animals are harmed in the process. Mink lashes come from real mink fur sourced in fur farms, and those animals are often mistreated as their fur is being harvested for lashes.
Although learning to apply lashes can be a process for some people, the end result is totally worth it. Now, with this new skill unlocked, get ready for synthetic lashes to be your new go-to look.
Whether you come to school wearing full glam or all natural is entirely up to you. Makeup should be fun and can be worn in any way to best suit your personal style.
At M2U NYC, we cater to all different styles such as minimal natural looks, to vibrant and dramatic. Also, you can say goodbye to your guilt for good. We’re 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free. That way, you’re never buying at the expense of your health or the lives of animals.
We are all extremely excited to see what you have come up with for your new back to school look. Feel free to share your look with us on your socials using the hashtag #m2unyc and tagging @m2unyc
