Here's a quick, easy, and very affordable makeup look that's perfect for an educational setting. It should take you less than ten minutes in the morning to complete, will make you look effortlessly polished, and won't have you sticking out like a sore thumb on the first day of class.

Are you currently attending high school, college, or maybe a night class? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Hahaha, ganz cool! Zum Glück sind bei mir bunte Nägel erlaubt, ansonsten wäre ich naja... hobbylos ;D

  2. I think the lighting is too bright. The tutorial was a very nice and simple look :)

  3. Maybe just a tad dimmer. p.s i love your videos!

    Very simple tutorial and nice one too but the lighting is too bright. and what brush did you use for applying blush

  5. Nice soft tutorial! thanks for sharing

  6. This is a perfect job/ interview makeup in addition to your college makeup title. Easy on the eyes and wallet. I hope you consider making a variety tutorials for work/interviews since usually during the fall is when companies advertise for vacancies. A hair tutorial for work/job interview is highly appreciated as well.
    Another A+ for Julia!

  7. Looks like your ready to go to a "Sock Hop" Young and fresh ;)

  8. The light is too bright as the video doesn't look natural anymore

  9. How about a split screen with different light setting and we can vote on which one we like.

    I'm in college and I really appreciate this cheaper tutorial! You should do a few more, same idea, but with some colorful looks, and maybe looks that each feature something diff (ex: cheeks, brows)

  12. Toller Look!!
    Bin gerade in meinem Abschluss-Schuljahr und werde das Makeup bestimmt mal nachschminken!

  13. I'm wearing this look now everyday, and purchased the same products too, love them! No allergies from these and my eyes feel good until the late hours :)
    Thank you so much for sharing! P.S. my morning make-up routine is now less time consuming.
