Summer is coming to an end, which means school will be back in session very soon. Along with the start of this new season comes the opportunity to try different outfits, hair styles and makeup looks for school — no matter what level of education you're heading into. 


To help you feel confident for this upcoming semester, lectures and group projects, we’re sharing 10 long-wearing beauty products to help you perfect your back to school makeup look. They’re made to last through a long day of studying so you can make the grade while you look good and feel your best.

What Is the Back to School Makeup Trend?

Typically, back to school makeup is a light, everyday-friendly makeup look that includes tinted moisturizer, blush, tinted lip balm and mascara. It’s meant to be easy and quick to achieve. That said, it can also be whatever you want it to be, so if you want to go glam for class with contour, shimmery eyeshadow and smoky eyeliner, you can do that too. Between classes, extracurriculars and study sessions, school tends to bring longer days, so finding long-wearing makeup products is super important. 

10 Long-Wear Makeup Products to Shop for Back to School 

To ensure your makeup looks good for morning classes to nighttime cramming sessions, here are 10 long-wear makeup products to shop right now. And to help make your back to school makeup routine a bit easier, all the products are listed in the order that you should apply them. 

L’Oréal Paris Prime Lab Up to 24H Matte Setter

Behind every long-lasting makeup look is a solid makeup primer. This one manages excess oils while extending your makeup weartime for up to 24 hours. If oily skin isn’t an issue, try the Redness Eraser, Pore Minimizer or Dullness Reducer from the Prime Lab line. 

L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer

Lumi Glotion has many different uses: Apply it after makeup primer for a glowy skin finish, mix with foundation to sheer out the formula, or wear it on the high points of the face as highlighter. It’s extremely versatile and TikTok loves it — Alix Earle included. If you have dry skin, mix it with the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum for the ultimate dewy, hydrating skin concoction.

L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Foundation

This lightweight foundation offers a skin-like finish and a precise shade match thanks to its range of 47 shades organized by warm, neutral and cool undertones. It’s buildable to suit your desired level of coverage, and it suits all skin types, even sensitive skin. 

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer up to 24H Full Coverage 

Concealer is used to highlight and contour the skin or to add more coverage as needed. The nice thing about this long-wearing tube is that you can also use it in place of foundation on days when you’re craving a lighter makeup look. The full-coverage formula does a great job of concealing all traces of late nights — whether you were up studying or making memories with friends. 

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Blush

We’d argue that your back to school makeup look isn’t complete without blush because it’s easily one of the hottest makeup products at the moment. This matte powder feels weightless and provides a rosy pop of color with a finish that resists transfer, water, heat and sweat. Blush is often the first thing to fade from your makeup look, but not when you use this formula. 

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Bronzer 

Glowy, bronzed skin is the ultimate sign of a summer well spent when you’re heading back to school. Like Infallible Blush, this bronzing powder has a waterproof, sweatproof and transfer-proof formula. It comes in eight shades with neutral undertones to avoid that dreaded orange and muddy bronzer look. 

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Felt Waterproof Eyeliner 

For winged eyeliner enthusiasts, this liquid eyeliner boasts a waterproof, transfer-resistant finish that lasts for up to 30 hours. The precise felt tip makes for sharp, detailed wings, and it doesn’t skip when you drag it across the lids.

L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Instant Lift Washable Mascara

If you’re in a rush, mascara is all you need to make your eyes look awake and ready for the day. We love this Telescopic formula because it lifts the lashes while adding length and preventing clumps. Sport a shade of classic black, or complement your eye color with the purple or blue shade. If you prefer the waterproof mascara variety, that’s an option, too.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick

If you’re not one to shy away from lipstick, even in an academic setting, this creamy satin lipstick is just the thing to add to your bag. In 52 shades, there’s an option to suit every mood, season and makeup look. Plus, the formula is comfortable and silky, and won’t feather or smudge throughout the day.

L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Lip Balm-in-Gloss Pomegranate Extract

This hydrating gloss coats your lips with a juicy, hydrating glow. The formula is silky, not sticky, and it provides sheer color that delivers a your-lips-but-better look.
