Want to look fresh and gorgeous for the school? Do you know your hallmark look? What are your Back-to-school makeup essentials?

In this era of Kim K, Jenner’s and Instagram feed, there is one look that every girl needs to understand it like a PRO: natural, easy, “no-makeup” makeup look. I’d consider it the look that you can wear to your school. A little concealer, sheer foundation, a powder to set, nude or pink lips- each and every day. Even if you are not total beauty addict, this article is for you.I thought it was about time to share some of the best Back-to-school hair and beauty products that every girl should take for a spin…


A classic black mascara can make you look more awake and fresh. I am naturally blessed with long and thick eyelashes so a good mascara just adds some depth to it and Benefit They’re Real!! Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara delivers just this.


Black eyeliner is a staple in my makeup bag. I can’t go out without an eyeliner or kohl in my bag, it’s the most important thing in my hallmark look. It’s just so trendy- and also, Indian. I like Kat Von D Tattoo liner or Maybelline which has got the blackest black color.

Eye Brow Pencil

Who need dragon brows? Just essential filling in of brows and perfecting the shape. Get two shade lighter color, if you have dark brows. Get two shades darker, if you have light brows. I still couldn’t find anything better than Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil.




I consider this one the most important – if not the most important – of all the makeup essentials. It is also the trickiest. Always look for a formula that is lightweight and easy to blend. I prefer L’oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte foundation it has a creamy and lightweight formula that blends like a dream. And affordable!

Lip color

Dry lips are rude. Always keep a tinted lip balm or nude/pink lip color to get a little color on your face.


 Here are some DOs and DON’Ts:


  1. Keep your makeup simple and subtle.
  2. Light to medium coverage foundation will cover-up blemishes and dark circles. Find the perfect foundation.
  3. Wear nude and pink lips to get that natural look. A good lip gloss in your makeup bag is a must.
  4. Skin care is a key to get that healthy glow. Embrace your youthful glow.
  5. Get a good mascara and eyeliner to define your eyes.



  1. Wear loud colors. For a school, extremely bold colors can be a bit distracting and a little over the top.
