College Makeup Essentials

August 15, 2016


Let's be real for a moment. Makeup in college either happens in twenty minutes, or not at all. Before I went to school last year, painting on a full face of makeup for an hour and a half was my jam. After a year at away at uni? Mmm, maybe not so much. I still tend to be that girl that prefers to have something on my face in order to feel like I put some effort into my life. Here are a few of my favorite, quick get-ready items for a school day. 


My sister turned me onto this one - it's $18 and will last you a lifetime. It makes all of the difference in the world - brows on in two minutes - staying power all day.


Also a recommendation from Chloe - the best for a stunning eye shadow look in just seconds. I smudge the cream base on my eyelid and blend in the crease with a dark brown shadow. It looks like I took a good bit of time creating a shimmering shadow look, when in reality I can throw this on and be out the door in no time. Plus it lasts all day.


I've loved this product for three years now. It always keeps my eye shadow in place and lasts forever. In three years I've purchased a new tube twice.


I love this product for quick, easy, voluminous, dark lashes. It's not waterproof- my only complaint.


Love this eyeliner so much. It's a breeze to put on, the pigment is$8 a pen. College friendly convenience - college friendly price. Plus the staying power is on point.

What are some of your beauty- go-to's for college?

I agree, when you're in college, sometimes we are always in a hurry. When I was in college, all I used were pressed powder, eye concealer, lip balm, and lipstick, I am a late bloomer after all. Great picks ;)

These products all look amazing! I definitely went more minimal with makeup during college, and loved things like the Maybelline color tattoo eyeshadows and those ELF smudge pots! :)
Great post!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
