Make the first semester of school a memorable one! Have fun as you reinvent your look with these fresh summer beauty tips. Experiment with dewy textures and neautral shades. DOLLY has got your back to school beauty covered!
Ever heard the phrase ‘less is more’? You need coverage, yes, but minus the tell tale cakey-ness of a heavy foundation. The solution? Tinted moisturiser! You’ll even out your skin tone, hydrate your skin and protect it from the sun – all in the one super product!
Dark circles? Eye don’t think so!
If you’re freaking out about those dark (post-party) circles – don’t fret! You’ll have your teacher thinking you spent the holidays studying in no time – with the help of a little concealer of course! Only use it on the areas that need a little coverage or lightening and blend it well into your base.
Natural (looking) lashes
Ditch the tacky look of over-done lashes, and embrace your natural lashes with the help of an eyelash curler and clear mascara. You’ll be rockin’ some serious lashes and have your friends fooled that you were born with ‘em! Gently curl your lashes and finish with a coat of clear mascara.
Nothing says ‘refreshed and relaxed’ more than a rosy back-to-school-glow. Start by smoothing an illuminising cream over your whole face and finish with a dabbing of blush or bronzer on the apples of your cheeks. Don’t want a matte look? Mix your blush with some moisturiser for a DIY cream blush. Now that’s cheeky!
Nothing screams ‘detention’ more than an overdone lip. Instead of drowning your lips in gloss – keep them hydrated with lightly coloured lip balms. They smell great, look fab and have just the right amount of colour. Plus, you’ll be kissable all day long (you can thank us later).
