Gameday Gameface

September 26, 2014

With every school having homecoming approaching, it's a very exciting time! The leaves are changing the weather is cooling, and it's time to go back to your college hometown and pretend you're still in college.  (Hopefully) your day will consist of running around campus in the sun, sharing drinks at your favorite old spots, and hanging out with people you haven't seen in a while. So basically you want to look good & natural but since it's a long day, you want minimal upkeep. I've rounded up what I think are some of the best products to be rocking on your face when you head back to your old alma mater.

Bare Minerals Original Foundation
I personally find mineral makeup to be the most natural looking, especially over a long period of time. Plus you can toss it in your purse and touch up much more easily than with a liquid. Bare Minerals original also contains SPF 15, so it will help keep you protected from the suns rays while looking flawless!

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara
To be honest any waterproof mascara will do, this is just the one I've been loving lately. Waterproof will guarantee a curl to last all day and will not run during any celebratory beer sprays from your friends (yes, this is speaking from personal experience).

Milani Baked Brush in Luminoso
Natural blush is a MUST. This is not the time to contour and highlight like a Kardashian. Just keep it pretty and natural by adding a light wash of color on top of your cheekbones. You'll be thankful when your friends bronzer starts to patch or her cream blush starts to cake cause we've all seen it happen. Don't let it happen to you, girl!

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain
These are pretty amazing. They're lipgloss that stain your lips, so when the gloss fades off, you're left with a gorgeous lipstick-like stain. Super practical for long game days where you'll most likely be sipping on lots of beverages. L'Oreal makes a great version of this too. They are both great dupes of the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stains.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
Now of course any basic eyeshadow will do, but the point of this is that natural on the lids for a day like this are best! If it creases or runs, it'll be much less noticeable than your smoky eye. Save that for the club! It is called gameDAY after all. Don't forget that if you do wear an eyeshadow look, wear a great base!

What are your game day makeup essentials?
