Teen Week: Preppy School Look

 
 

This look was loosely inspired by the character Blair Waldorf from the hit TV show Gossip Girl, although I kind of changed the colours up a bit to suit my taste. I was going for a very girly prep school look, one that would be easy to recreate and wearable for school or other daytime activities. Although I use 2 palettes for this look, you don't necessarily need to buy the whole palette. For the eyeshadows, you'll need a pastel pink, a light brown, a dark brown, and a highlight color - easy to find pretty much anywhere! I round out the video by making some budget makeup brushes suggestions and where to buy. Make sure to check back on Friday for my final look in this teen series.

Face
Illamasqua cream foundation, Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pink Raspberry, MAC MSF in Blonde
Eyes
Urban Decay Primer Potion, NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, 42-Double Stack Palettes from ebay (both the matte and shimmer), MAC Dazzlelight e/s, Quo eyeliner in Brown, Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Cane, L'Oreal Voluminous mascara
Lips
NYX Tinted Lip Spa in Sake, Margaret Astor lipgloss (doesn't have the shade written on package)
Nails
Sorry I really don't remember which one I used!
