With school starting next week, it is time to start thinking about your new makeup routine and the products you will be using in your makeup bag this school year. In this article, we discuss our top picks for the ultimate back-to-school makeup collection.
First, and foremost, the foundation is where it all starts. When it comes to foundation, there is a multitude of options to choose from, including liquid, loose powder, and compact.
Loose Powder Foundation is just as it sounds, a foundation with a loose, powdery consistency. Loose Powder Foundation is great for medium to full coverage and gently blends into the skin because of the lightweight formula. bellapierre’s Loose Powder Mineral Foundation is a finely-milled, mica-based formula that is free from talc and other parabens. It is also cruelty-free and contains only a handful of ingredients. It is great for those with skin allergies or sensitivities as it is completely hypoallergenic. In addition, it has a natural SPF rating of 15 thanks to the minerals it contains.
Compact Foundation is similar to Loose Powder Foundation but contains oils to compress the powder. While bellapierre’s Compact Foundation shares all the benefits of our Loose Foundation, it also has the advantage of being very easy to take with you on the go for midday touch-ups thanks to the compact case.
When it comes to a liquid foundation, bellapierre’s BB Cream SPF 20 takes the cake. Our BB Cream is formulated to provide medium to full coverage while moisturizing your skin and concealing blemishes and spots. In addition, our BB Cream has an SPF rating of 20 to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Once your look is complete, the last thing you want to do is see it get ruined by your day. To lock your makeup in place all day for a truly flawless finish, we recommend using our Banana Setting Powder. Our color-correcting setting powder has a subtle yellow hue to banish any redness, discoloration, or dark spots, giving you an even, flawless complexion. Because of its lightweight formula, it effortlessly glides onto your skin and never looks cakey.
For all-day wear, we recommend using the “baking” technique by letting the Banana Powder set for 10 minutes before dusting away.
Next, we recommend using a Blush to brighten your complexion for a radiantly glowing look.
bellapierre’s Loose Powder Blush is suitable for all skin types and is a great way to define your cheekbones and brighten your face. This creamy, non-comedogenic Mineral Blush gives you a beautiful, healthy flush that looks natural and leaves you glowing and is available in 4 dazzling shades. These same shades are also available in a travel-friendly, Compact Blush formulation.
No makeup look is complete without lips that pop! Bellapierre offers a range of lipsticks, including Matte, Mineral, and Kiss Proof.
Bellapierre’s Mineral & Matte Lipsticks are richly pigmented and formulated with natural oils, such as sunflower and jojoba, mineral pigments, and iron oxides for beautiful, flawless lips. They also contain antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E to last for hours without causing dryness.
For those who like liquid lipsticks and are looking for a transfer-proof finish, our Kiss Proof Lip Cremes are for you. Kiss Proof Lip Crèmes are full coverage, high-impact liquid lipstick that lasts for hours without the need to touch up. The creamy formula goes on smooth and dries to a beautiful matte finish in a snap! They are designed to last all day, without transferring onto everything your lips touch.
To complete your look, we recommend our Pompous Lash Mascara and one of our expertly coordinated eyeshadow palettes that range from 4 shades to 35 shades per palette.
Bellapierre’s Pompous Lash Mascara was designed to help you achieve the perfect, fluttery lashes. Our silicone wand features soft bristles that allow for a simple and precise coating of each lash, providing a clump-free, volumizing effect.
This long-lasting, smudge-proof mascara comes in a Jet-Black shade to create darker, thicker, and fuller lashes! The compact tube is great for perfecting your makeup on the go!
Nothing complements thick, full lashes better than a beautiful shade of eyeshadow. Whether you are looking for something natural, like our Ultimate Nude palette, or something adventurous, like our Extravaganza palette, bellapierre has the eyeshadow palette for you.
As with all of our makeup, our eyeshadow palettes are made with the safest ingredients, making them non-toxic and paraben free. In addition to being safe for you, they are also 100% cruelty-free to protect our little fur buddies.
We hope this article helps you select the best makeup products to complete your one-of-a-kind look this school year!
