4 Back to School Beauty Looks from FLIRT! Cosmetics.

So... I've been in high school for just over a month now, and I hate to admit it, but I am kind of really liking it. I am getting used to the early morning routine and fitting everything in. I am really starting to have a good time and look forward to more of the same.

Getting used to the early morning routine was more than a challenge in the beginning, but I have it pretty much down to a science now. One BIG thing I learned is that I need to streamline my routine and products, especially when it comes to makeup. FLIRT! Cosmetics must have read my mind, because they came up with 4 cute back to school beauty looks using a variety of their products.

Not only do I love FLIRT! Cosmetics for sending me the 4 looks that they have featured, but I am loving how varied the looks can be, but simple with the right products. And, the products are great. The eye shadows and blushes are very pigmented and silky soft. The lipsticks are pretty long wearing and not drying at all. The lip lacquers are probably my favorite. Well, along with the mascara. The IT CURL! Mascara is one of my new best friends!

As I said, FLIRT! was kind enough to send me the 4 back to school beauty looks, and being the good friend that I am, I just had to share them with two of my besties. So, a few weekends ago, I invited a few girls over to test out the looks.

We had such a fun time playing with all of the makeup and took turns applying it on each other.

Here is the list of FLIRT! products used to makeup up each look.

Exotic Jewel
The smoky eye gets a little easier (and more colorful) this Fall. Try a jewel-toned dark green or purple paired with a nude lip.
Eyes: Sweep Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow in Honey Lemonade from lashline to browbone. This is your base. Next apply Crocodile Rock to lid, from lashline to above the crease. Continue applying Crocodile Rock to the inner tearducts, as well as to bottom lashline and smudge. Next apply a touch of Wild Night from lashline to crease, and out and up - intensifying it on the outer lid and outer crease. Blend and fade the shadows. Complete the eye look with a generous coat of Big Flirt! Thickening mascara in Black Wink.
Lips: Perfectly nude lips complete the look. Try Squeeze Me Super Shiny Lipgloss in Heavenly Honey 03.
Cheeks: Lightly dust cheek bones with Peek-a-Blush in Caramel Belle 14.

Berry Beautiful
Make a bold statement with berry-red lips and a beautiful soft and neutral shimmery smoky eye.
Eyes: Sweep Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow in Witchy from lashline to browbone. Next apply Bronze Splash to lid, from lashline to above the crease. Continue applying Bronze Splash to bottom lashline and smudge. To intensify the smoke, add Look of Love Eye Pencil in Brownie Points to upper and lower lashline and smudge. Complete the eye look with Far Out! Lengthening mascara in Extreme Brown.
Lips: Berry lips are a consistent fall trend and there are so many beautiful and wearable berries to suit your skin tone and personal back to school style. Try High Wattage in Smitten 26 for a fuller coverage, deeper berry lip, or Squeeze Me Super Shiny Lipgloss in Bubbly Berry 18 for a sheer and sparkly blush of berry.
Cheeks: Lightly dust apples of cheeks in a complementary berry shade – Peek-a-Blush in Popsie.

Teacher's Pet
Stand-out in the crowd with orangey-red lips, naturally lined eyes and flirty, curled lashes.
Eyes: Sweep Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow in Sugar Daddy from lashline to browbone. Lightly line upper lashline with Look of Love Eye Pencil in Tipoff. Complete the look with Flirt! IT CURL in Bombshell Black.
Lips: For a spin on the classic red lip, try a hint of orange with High Wattage Intense and Creamy Lipcolor in Wicked 14 or Naughty 10.
Cheeks: Lightly dust cheekbones with Bring on the Bronze Bronzing Powder in Foxy Bronze 01.

Laid Back Lady
Enhance your summer tan with rosy cheeks, a pinky-nude lip and golden colored eye-makeup for a look that’s polished yet still relaxed.
Eyes: Create the perfect golden shimmer with Dreamy Eyes Eye shadow in Peach Champagne – from lashline to browbone. Then, apply Golden Lady in crease to create depth. Finish with Lash-a-delic Fast Defining Mascara in Mod Black.
Lips: Generously apply Glamourazzi Extreme Lip Lacquer in Dream Girl.
Cheeks: Dust Peek-a-Blush in Dapple Apple on apples of cheeks and bridge of nose.

All of the products used in the FLIRT! Back to School Beauty Looks can be purchased online at www.flirtcosmetics.com, kohls.com and in store at Kohls.

I hope you like the looks. My friends and I sure did. G & M each went home with a bag of makeup that was used to make up the look, and FLIRT! wants me to share even more. Want to know more? You will have to come back to Teen Beauty on Friday to see how you can win a FLIRT! Back to School Beauty look yourself.

Light Up Your Face with Urban Decay's Urban Glow.

I will admit that I know nothing about highlighting and contouring when it comes to making up my face. What I do know is that I like to look as fresh as I can, especially in the wee hours of the morning when I am getting ready for school, and a highlighter is one way to get this fresh glow.

Urban Decay just came out with a Cream Highlight product called Urban Glow and I think it will make my highlighting process that much easier.

 

The notes I got from Urban Decay on this new product just about it sums it up in a nutshell:

"Urbanglow is enriched with a healthy dose of nourishing coconut oil, giving it just the right amount of slip to glide on easily and apply without the greasy Renee Zellweger shine. Each of the four ridiculously flattering shades are subtle enough to work on any skin tone. Look cool while you fake an inner glow: when it’s time for a touch-up, whip out your signature Lucite compact adorned with a flowery gold skull, emblazoned with the new ‘UD’ icon, and complete with a mirror. Packed with powders made from real crushed pearls, this cream highlight gives skin an ethereal glow..."

Urban Glow comes in four perky shades:

  • Moonshine- a pearlescent shimmer with iridescent pink shift
  • Sin- gold shimmer
  • Wicked- pink shimmer
  • Brown Sugar- bronze shimmer

Check out Urban Glow Cream Highlight over on UrbanDecay.com. It will be in stores on October 1st. Each color sells for $24.00.
