How to look cute for college !! hair and makeup #1

Hey girlies !!! Many girls who read my blog are college going students, so I decided to do a series where I would show you some cute hair and makeup ideas that are easy to do, are mature enough to pass you as a college student and look cute at the same time...

I hope you will like my attempt, and if you do, then please don't forget to show some love via comments and follows....

so without further ado, lets start with the tutorial !

STEP - 1

I cleanse my face and apply nivea visage toner and neutrogena oil free moisturizer

STEP - 2

Next, I apply my maybelline BB stick in "radiance" all over my face and blend with my fingers

after that, I apply my concealer with a damp sponge and blend around to cover my under eye circles and blemishes


To set the concealer and prevent oiliness, I apply my Rimmel stay matte pressed powder with a Kabuki brush

STEP - 4

I apply my bourjois blush in "rose perle" and lakme moonlit highlighter on my cheek bones and nose bridge

STEP - 5

Now, as we all know, eyebrows are the windows to our eyes, they frame our face, so I fill in my brows with my oriflame brow pencil and set them with a brow gel 

STEP - 6

Apply an eyeshadow primer all over your eyelid for your eyeshadow to stay on for a long period of time

STEP - 7

Now I apply the same lakme highlighter on the inner corner of my eyes, because I wake up sleepy and I don't want people to know that, It makes me look awake and makes my eyes look even bigger

STEP - 8

Now I take a white matte shade and apply it on my brow bone, to highlight it

STEP - 9

Now, I apply a cream eyeshadow by maybelline called "audacious asphalt", its a sparkly silvery grey color that looks absolutely pretty and short perfect for college

STEP - 10

Now taking a blending brush, blend the eyeshadow upto the crease

STEP - 11

Now take a purple or any other color liner and make a thick line on the upper lashline

now smudge, the lliner with a pencil brush

apply liner on the lower waterline, don't go all the way to the inner corner

STEP - 12

Curl your lashes and apply heaps of mascara

this is the final eye look, 

STEP - 13

I apply my chapstick and then a balm stain by revlon which has a soft pink color, its a stain so it will last all day....

Now the last step is optional but I apply my mac fix plus in the end to set my makeup and make it look less cakey


Part your hair on the side and take strands from each side and braid them

Now cross these braids on the back of your head and fix them with bobby pins, I have used my natural hair for this

annnnd now the look is done !!! :D

  7. Hi Prayati,

    You are looking so beautiful. Very nice look and tutorial. Here in Canada I saw everyone with a nude or what they call naked makeup i.e a cream which is a combination of Moisturiser, primer , foundation , concealer and compact.Everyone looks so awesome.This makeup includes base for face as mentioned above , lots and lots of mascara and red or pink lips.Here girls concentrate more on skin and nails. In metro I had seen so many beautiful nail arts.I was missing you here.:)

    Keep posting.

    Take care.
