For a K-Beauty-Inspired Flush
A soft wash of blush on the nose and cheeks was one of our go-to looks all summer, and it’s the perfect way to extend your sunny glow into fall. Jackie Aina achieved this rosy, luminous look in only five minutes, which means it’s perfect for those mornings when you forget to hit snooze.
For a Soft Glam Look
Not only is this look super pretty and wearable, content creator Gabriela Marie also shares tips on how to keep it matte and mask-proof. Hint: A setting spray, such as the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, is your best friend for locking in your makeup and preventing transfer.
For a Natural, Dewy Glow
Let your skin shine through with this dewy, skinimalist makeup tutorial by Jackeline Cabrera. A glossy lip, rosy cheeks and defined lashes look gorgeous and can instantly wake up your face after a night of studying.
For the Beauty on a Budget
You can shop all your back-to-school beauty essentials at the drugstore like Allie Glines did for this natural, peachy look. She used the Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara to achieve her dramatic, fanned-out lashes.
For an Acne-Friendly Look
In this video, Michelle Gia shares specific tips for covering up breakouts and hyperpigmentation without looking cakey. In fact, she doesn’t even use foundation — instead, she lets her concealer dry down a little first before patting it in with a brush.
For Making Dry Skin Shine
Joanna Vongphoumy shares a super quick, glowy makeup routine that makes even the driest skin types look more luminous. This is another foundation-free look, so it requires minimal time and products.
