Must Have Back to School Beauty Buys

Hi everyone, I trust you have all had an enjoyable break this Summer.

Here are my top 5 MUST HAVE beauty products for back to school:


1) Napoleon Perdis Lip service $ 28

This stuff is the bomb.

It will keep your lips and stays for hours.

It leaves a slight glossy finish which I love too.

2) Schwarzkopf Extra Care Hair Repair Leave in Conditioner $7.99

This product will make your hair tangle free and silky smooth – perfect for those of you who haven’t taken a brush to your hair since the beginning of holidays.

Just spray it into your towel dried hair and leave it to dry (or follow through with a blow dry!)

It’s no fuss and easy to use.

3) Real Techniques Beauty Blender $8.86

Oh my god need I say more.

Dampen it with water or MAC fix + and apply your foundation or BB cream in a pouncing motion.

You will not get a more perfect finish. Being a makeup artist, I use a lot of products and this one is definitely something everyone should have.

Follow through with a powder to keep it set in place.

4) Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder $11.95

Apply a small amount of this using a big powder brush all over the face.

It gives a really natural finish (perfect for school).

Also being that we are still in the warmer months, it prevents oil from coming through.

If you have a dry complexion, you can still use this product. Just use a serum or great moisturiser underneath.

And lastly

5) Loving Tan 2 Hour Express Tanning Mousse $39.95

To keep my summer tan, I apply a very small amount of this to my arms, legs and chest.

I then wash it off after 1-2hours.

It washes off so well, hardly has a scent and looks so natural.

Also you don’t have to sleep in it, LOVE!
