How to Stock Your Makeup Bag for Back to School How to Stock Your Makeup Bag for Back to School How to Stock Your Makeup Bag for Back to School

Summer is coming to an end, which means school is about to be back in session. While you may be caught up to speed on all your summer reading, dress code-appropriate apparel, and school supply shopping, there might be something you’re forgetting to prep for going back to school: your makeup bag. Along with a new season (not to mention a new school year!) comes the opportunity to try different makeup looks and products in autumn-inspired shades. To help you make the switch, below we share ten makeup products—ranging from foundation to lipstick—that you’ll want to consider adding to your makeup bag to start the school year off right.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #1: FOUNDATION

Taking school pics? Try adding a radiant finish foundation to your makeup routine to create the look of glowing skin. Squeeze the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation onto the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender and stipple it onto your skin starting at the center of your face and working your way outwards.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #2: COLOR CORRECTOR

It’s time to head back to art class! Color correcting utilizes the color wheel to help counteract the appearance of imperfections. The theory is that colors opposite each other on the wheel cancel each other out. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayon comes in five colors: green to neutralize redness, yellow to hide blue or purple areas, peach for dark circles on those with fair to light skin tones, bisque for dark circles on those with light to medium skin tones, and orange for dark circles on those with medium to dark skin tones.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #3: CONCEALER

Stayed up late finishing homework last night? No problem! Grab a handy concealer to cover up your dark circles in the bathroom before first period starts. Use the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer to conceal and highlight. Apply concealer in upside-down triangles underneath your eyes, between your eye brows, down the bridge of your nose, and in the center of your chin.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #4: BLUSH

Next up: perking up your cheeks with blush. Keep your color options open by adding the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup to your makeup bag.

Editor’s note: Want to brighten the look of your eyes? Try blending a little bit of blush into the inner corners of your brows.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #5: HIGHLIGHTER

You’re probably pretty familiar with strobing—after all, this is a technique that lots of celebrities use to get their glow on. All you need is a few dabs of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops in Daybreak on your cheekbones and you’re good to go.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #6: EYEBROW PENCIL

Frame your face by filling in your brows with an eyebrow pencil, such as the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Shape & Fill Mechanical Pencil. The angled tip makes filling in your brows quick and easy.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #7: EYE SHADOW

Want to be known as a makeup trendsetter this year? This back-to-school season, switch up your eye makeup with a wash off allover matte or metallic color. Bring your eye shadow look to life with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow or L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #8: EYELINER

Show off your personality by reaching for a colorful eyeliner shade this season. Embrace fall’s most popular shades with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Grey and Forest Green.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #9: MASCARA

Make sure your lashes are on point for your first day of school by applying a mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara. Just place the brush at the base of your lashes and gently sweep up to the tip.

MAKEUP BAG PICK #10: LIPSTICK

Your makeup bag is nearly filled to the brim, but there’s always room for lipstick, right? This fall, mattes and metallics reign supreme. Show off your pretty pout in the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips MetallicL’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Matte, and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick.

And there you have it: Your makeup bag is officially stocked for a stylish school entrance.
