NYX Beauty School Dropout Freshman | 4 looks with one palette

nyx beauty school dropout freshman

If there’s one makeup product I love beyond anything – it’s eyeshadow palettes. I love eyeshadow palettes and I own quite a few of them. I love how they offer countless opportunities and give room to creativity – you can’t say the same of a foundation or a lipstick.

 

One of my biggest palettes with tons of colours is NYX Beauty School Dropout Freshman palette. It has 32 eyeshadows and 12 colours for face (blush, highlight, bronzer). It’s perfect for someone, who loves big palettes with lots of different colours. It’s also great for someone, who appreciates a palette, that does it all – eyes, face and brows – because obviously you can use the eyeshadows on your brows too.

I thought it would be fun to use this palette four days in a row and combine all the makeup looks in one post. It was also a challenge for myself – owning so many palettes I sometimes forget to use some of them or I don’t give the palettes their opportunity to show their full potential. So here are my four makeup looks done with the NYX Beauty School Dropout Freshman palette.

If you are looking for tutorials, you can find my tutorials done with the palette HERE and HERE.

Look 1 – Classic look with neutrals

Basically a very classic look with neutral colors. I love that shimmer color on my lid! The red lipstick is my go-to.

This was actually the first makeup I did for this challenge. Very cool-toned, lilac look. I love purple any day. My skin looked worse here, because I used a very light coverage on that. And also, it looked particularly red that day, thanks to being a woman.

I wanted to pair warm peach colour with a lilac pink – and I love how it turned out. I think these colors look very nice on me.

What is your favorite look out of these four?
And what do you think – should I do this challenge with my other palettes? I probably should… I might have bought another palette last week, you see…

Simple makeup with yellow liner – tutorial

It’s easy to bring some color to your makeup with small adjustments. This time I ditched the classic black liner and replaced it with bright yellow. Apart from the yellow liner this makeup is very classic – a go-to makeup, that I wear all the time.

I used products, that I got to choose from eleven*.

I’ve been obsessed with the Beauty School Dropout Freshman palette. It’s super versatile! It can be used as a highlighter, contour, bronzer and a blush. And you can do your brows with it! I’ll probably post about it later, because I’ve been super inspired by it and done a lot of crazy looks with it (snap family knows).

I’ve also found a new favorite foundation: Milani’s Conceal+Perfect! Now that I’ve used it for a couple of weeks I can say that it’s pretty awesome. I would compare it to Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Makeup (that I just posted here). It’s full-coverage with a matte finish and it’s very long lasting. The price is obviously cheaper, so it’s a great dupe for Double Wear.

Let’s get to the tutorial! For my Finnish readers: You can find a discount code to eleven.fi at the end of this post.

Makeup base

Before and after Milani’s Conceal+Perfect Foundation. I love it! I recommend using a damp beauty blender for application. The foundation has a concealer in it too, so it’s a bit thick.

  1.  Apply a thin layer all over your face (including your dark under eye circles!) and blend the edges well.
  2.  Apply a second layer of the foundation for the areas that need more coverage, such as pimples.

Here is the finished makeup base. Contour, highlight and bronzer are all done with the NYX Professional Makeup Beauty School palette. Blush is Milani’s Pink Delizioso.

Eye makeup

  1. Apply a primer and set the primer. I used a matte white and a light pink eye shadow to get a light and an even base.
  2. Start to contour your crease with a light brown shade. The placement depends on your eye shape. This is the lightest shade of the contour, so you can blend it to a larger area.
  3. Deepen the crease with a darker brown.
  4. Apply the lid colour. I used a shimmery warm brown, but added some light shimmer color on top of that to make it more glowing. I also applied some shimmer to my inner corners.
  5. Deepen the crease a bit more. Now that you have a lid color it’s easier to blend and see what you’re doing. I used a very dark brown at first and then a touch of black. Use a small brush for this.
  6. Line your eyes lightly with a black eye shadow. Apply those crease colors for your lower lash line as well.
  7. Create a winged liner of your choosing. Apply a coat of mascara and some lashes. All done!

 Lips

Lipstick application gone easy:

  1. Line your lips with a transparent lip liner. If you want the lipstick to last super long, apply the liner all over your lips.
  2. Add lipstick to your bottom lip.
  3. Press your lips together to spread the color.
  4. Apply a nice layer of the lipstick all over your lips. Now that the lips already have some color, it’s easier to see the lines and apply the lipstick smoothly.
