Simple Back to School Beauty Tips

“High School is the best years of your life”. My Grandma told me this my freshman year, I thought, no way Grandma, as always though, she was right. Let’s face it going back to school can be so stressful. I remember being a nervous wreck the first day. What am I going to wear? Hair? Makeup? Ahhhh!

Here are a few tips I would like to pass on to you back to schoolers!

Dress Code:

I cannot stress this enough, please do not worry about what others think of you. I would wear some crazy stuff in high school, though some “friends” of mine would make jokes about my outfits, I didn’t care (they were not my friends for very long). Fashion is such a great way of expressing yourself, so you do you! Plus, when I got to Fashion School it didn’t matter, everyone dressed crazy! But, make sure to follow that dress code, I was pinned by this a few times. So, if you want to wear a floral shirt with a plaid long sleeve, then by all means go for it.



Concealer and eyeliner was my go to!  I honestly wasn’t into makeup until I hit 25. In high school I would use concealer under my eyes, pack on the black eyeliner, and maybe some mascara. I’m all for the simple look, even when I was in college I would wear the smallest amount of makeup. If I was a 17 year old in today’s world, I would use a BB cream, a small amount of concealer, and mascara. But, if you feel like rocking a smoky eye, then you rock that smoky eye.


BUN! My go to hair style was up and in a bun. If it wasn’t up in a bun, it was down with my emo bang blocking my eyes. Have fun with your hair. If you can have pink highlights then DO IT, I wish I could have done that.

Lastly, my biggest advice has nothing to do with beauty. Treat others with respect and be nice. You may never know what someone else is going through, so instead of talking about others, sit down and chat with them. You never know, your words may have a positive impact on that person’s life.
