Hello everyone! Hope you had a great and productive week. Mine was pretty hectic and productive at the same time. I managed to shoot this look for you guys as majority of my readers are girls who are either in school or college. I thought it would be useful if you have a hassle free outfit for school. Shirts are so easy to style and can be worn with pretty much anything so I decided to pull out another plaid shirt from my wardrobe and came up with this simple back to school OOTD.

For the outfit, I opted for a simple red blue oversized plaid shirt and a blue tank top. I decided to keep the look casual and muted because school is not the place to wear flashy clothes. A pair of dark washed skinny jeans tied the whole look together. One can also wear this with skirts but as I did a look with skirt the other week I switched it up with pants.

For shoes, it’s all about comfort so I wore my favorite pair of Adidas shoes but you could also wear it with sandals if it’s too hot outside. The accessories were minimal I wore an oxidised gold choker necklace, a pair of studs and couple of rings. A good old pair of cat eye sunglasses to ease the heat. To keep the school books and other stuffs in, I carried this black backpack also from Adidas.

Face Makeup-

First, I moisturized and applied sunscreen on my skin before any makeup. I skipped the foundation per usual and went straight up with concealing the under eye circles and other blemishes using a concealer and set my whole face with a powder foundation for some extra coverage. I lightly bronzed my skin for a sunkissed look and added a light wash of matte pink blush to the cheeks.

As I have colored my hair lighter, I skipped doing my eyebrows and instead used a spoolie brush with hairspray to set the brow hairs in place. For the eyes, I applied a matte sienna color on the crease and blended it using a blending brush. To add some oomph to the eyes, I added a couple of coats of mascara and lined my waterline using a black kohl. To finish off the look, I filled my lips with a matte mauvy pink color.
