Once the bulk of your eye makeup is done you’re gonna want to put on the finishing touches mascara, blush & gloss.  In total, this last part should take you about 3 minutes to complete.

LastBast Volume Blasting Mascara ($7.79) is the best on the market for the price and there’s also a waterproof version for those of you that want your makeup to stay in place despite having gone to gym class.

Instead of using regular blush, opt for cream blush.  It lasts longer and is easier to apply when you’re in a hurry.  Plus, you won’t have to carry around a blush brush.  With cream blush, your fingers are your tools!

Sonia Kashuk Cream Blush In Petal ($9.99) is a fantastic and universally flattering color that will give you that natural rosy cheek without being overbearing.

It also compliments the natural pink colors in your eye makeup.  And the best part is that you can reapply it whenever you want because it’s small, compact and best of all you only need your fingers to put it on!

Every woman has the lipgloss they love and if you have a staple, stick with it.

However, for those of you that are looking for something new, I recommend [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rihanna[/lastfm]‘s favorite lipgloss:  Covergirl Wet Slick Lip Gloss Fruit Spritzers Watermelon Splash 530 ($5.99).  It’s a great gloss with a fantastic pop of color that tastes just like watermelon!

This whole look takes about 10 minutes to put on and highlights your natural radiance.  Still, if you’re going to try this for the first day of school, we recommend that you try it at least one time before the big day.

Perhaps the Saturday before school starts so you have an excuse to get dressed up and you can test and see what works for you!

Good luck & stay beautiful!
