12 Tips For The Perfect Preppy Makeup Look
Right Colors
Before you even put a preppy look together, you’ll want to choose the right colors for the aesthetic and skin tone. This look favors pastels over neons and neutrals over bold colors, but the preppy look is all about cohesion.
Light Base
A preppy makeup look requires a lightweight base to blur the color of the skin. For this, there are options you can use like a tinted moisturizer, BB cream, CC cream, or even a light-coverage foundation that matches your skin tone.
Simple Eyeliner
A preppy makeup look doesn’t require eyeliner, but if you want to add some, keep it simple. Preppy makeup is light on the eyes, so avoid graphic or bold liner looks and opt for something a little simpler, like a fine line, a little wing, or a tightline.
Neutral Eyeshadow
Preppy makeup is about enhancing your natural features rather than masking them. Neutral eyeshadows that compliment your undertones and skin tones will help you achieve the perfect preppy look but don’t feel pressured to use any either.
Wispy Lashes
Your lashes should remain wispy and light to perfect the preppy look. You should use mascaras that lightly cover the lashes and gives them some extra length, but if that’s not enough, you can use an eyelash curler or combine mascaras for extra volume.
