So with school fast approaching, I'd like to share with you a few beauty essentials that in the past have proven very useful to me during school time.

What To Keep In Your School Makeup Bag

H M hair accessory
£1.50 -

Whenever we'd be working with Bunsen burners in science, dangerous equipment in DT, painting or running   around in P.E, hair isn't something that you'd want to get in the way! Always keep a couple with you!

H M hair clip accessory
£1.50 -

There's nothing more annoying than hair getting in your face or your hairstyle falling out of place, so have hair clips or bobby pins to ensure your  hair won't have to be an issue throughout the day.

Hello Kitty Blotting Papers 100 Sheets
$12 -

If you're like me and have oily skin, then these will definately become your skin's best friend! Basically, if your skin is getting shiny, pat this all over your face to absorb any excess oil, but still keep your makeup intact! I get mine from Boots' skincare line, and my blotting sheets are impregnated with salicylic acid which also helps spots!

L'Oreal True Match Powder - Creamy Natural : Target
$8.99 -

Another solution to keeping your face matte is applying powder over (should you be wearing any) foundation.

Benefit Benetint
$42 -

The great thing about cheek tint is that you can give your face a natural, dewey finish that is perfect for school when you don't want to look 'cakey' and too 'dolled up'. A cheap alternative for Benetint or Posietint are the cheek and lip tints by 2True, which can be found in Superdrug.
Rimmel London Royal Gloss Lip Gloss
$6.90 -

Should you want to add a hint of colour and a natural gloss to brighten up your look, a juicy tube is ideal. They are inexpensive and taste delicious!

Aveda Inner Light Conceal
£16 -

Late nights finishing off homework and studying or the stress of exams, can have implications on your skin. To make you look a little more chirpier in the day time, have a concealer with you to touch up on any blemishes or under-eye circles.
Marc Jacobs Daisy by Marc Jacobs Fragrance .6 OZ Purse Spray w/ .5 OZ...
$45 -

Very often, your perfume can wear off during the day so to keep you smelling sweet, a tiny bottle of perfume is ideal. The lighter the perfume bottle, the better.
Floral - Fragrance - Bath & Body Works
$11 -

If you don't want a scent too heavy, then a light body spray smells light and fresh and can cool you down too.
eos Lemon Drop with SPF 15 Lip Balm Sphere : Target
$2.99 -

To prevent dry or crapped lips, a moisturizing lip balm is a must have! Plus they taste delicious too!
Dove Revive Deodorant Stick - 2.6 oz. : Target
$3.64 -

School classrooms can get pretty hot and after a good work out in a gym lesson, then you'll be in need of deoderant to freshen up.

Buy Cath Kidston Rose Cosmetic Bag online at
£12 -

To encase all of your bits and bobs, you'll need a cute little make-up bag, Primark do some great ones for under £2, so I definitely recommend checking out there.
Chantecaille Face Brush Small Handle
$73 -

So I wouldn't spend $73 on a brush, but I just used this one for the picture. Obviously, to apply your powder you'll be needing a brush.
Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express Waterproof Mascara - Brownish...
$0.60 -

Mascara always looks pretty on the eyes, and brightens them up, so should you not get time to put it on in the morning like myself, or just need a quick touch up, then bring a long your favourite mascara.

Your hands can get dry, so a hand cream will keep them soft and sweetly scented.

Other things that I didn't get a picture of, that I recommend you bring, are a mirror, so you can see what you are doing when applying makeup, sanitary towels or tampons, and mints for bresh breath!

I hope you found this handy!

Lots of Love,

Isabella x
