College Beauty Basics
Posted by Casey Nicole on August 3, 2012 at 4:20 PM
You’ve got your textbooks, pens, and more dorm furniture than you’ll have room for. While you’ve marked everything of your list, you may have forgotten your college beauty checklist. Don’t fret, because we’ve got the bare minimum you'll need to feel fresh and beautiful this fall.
A dorm room necessity. When you’re sharing a bathroom with who knows how many people, you can’t be leaving your favorite shampoo in the shower. A shower caddy will store your bathroom basics and allow you to carry them in convenience.
Makeup Remover Wipes
Hide evidence of those late nights by preventing raccoon eyes in the morning. Even if you just finished a late-night study session, don’t crash ‘til you’ve at least cleaned your makeup off. Keep a pack of makeup remover wipes near your bed for those times when you’re too exhausted for a full on face wash. Look for oil-free formulas, since they’re gentle on sensitive skin.
This one will definitely come in handy during finals week. Between classes, studying, the rec, and friends we realize there’s not always time to wash our hair and deal with drying, straightening, and styling, etc. In that case, pull out your handy dry shampoo. Just a few spritz and your hair will feel and look fresh.
For your everyday look, a ton of makeup certainly isn’t necessary, but to keep your face looking fresh you’ll want to maintain your brows. Perfectly groomed eyebrows are possible, even without consistent visits to the salon. Just use a precise brand of tweezers, like Tweezerman, and maintain the brow shape you have after a wax.
2-in-1 Beauty Products
In addition to the busy lifestyle of a student, you’ve got very limited storage space. Reduce clutter and save time getting ready by using products that multitask. Here’s a few options:
- Double-ended brushes
- Concealer & blemish-fighting sticks
- BB Creams or Tinted moisturizers
- Lip & Cheek Stains
Now that we've covered the bare minumum to get you by, what other beauty necessities are you always turning to? Let us know in the comments!
