Back to School Makeup Essentials - College Edition

Posted on 01 August 2019

Move-in day is approaching and classes are about to begin on college campuses. This is the time of year to start stocking up on school supplies and... MAKEUP! Yes, it is time to make sure your dorm is stocked with all of the makeup essentials. Well, at least enough to get you through to Winter break. While you're packing up, don't forget about these few essentials that will help you get through the semester while breaking the mold of beautiful! 

1. For those days when you've spent all night studying (or partying, we won't tell!) and you just don't have time to for glam. Grab your biggest pair of sunglasses and bold lipstick. Whether you are wearing your sweats or jeans and a t-shirt, the lipstick will make it look like you put effort into your look and the sunglasses will hide your tired eyes. We suggest picking out one of the fresh colors from the Lipp Beauty Ready to Wear Lipstick collection. Witty is the perfect plum and burgundy mix for the fall season. The colors Cheeky or Knockout are bright pinks to carry you for the rest of the summer and for parties throughout the semester.

2. Dorm life can be harsh on your skin. Add a face mask to your nighttime routine to refresh and nourish your skin. You can even multitask by studying or creating tomorrow's to-do list while you wear your mask. Plus, it will definitely help to reduce stressful exam time. Try out the GlowRX Skincare's Clear it Out Charcoal Detox Mask. The mask can be used up to 3 times per week and has amazing ingredients to rid your skin of pore-clogging build-up. 

3. Last but not least, a good pressed powder is perfect for adding a nice glow to your face without having to do a full face of makeup for class, study group or lunch with friends. A quick dip of your makeup brush in the powder followed by a little dusting on the skin can bring the youthfulness back to your skin in just a few minutes. We suggest using the Marena Beaute Poudre Caresse Pressed Setting Powder. This product can be used on bare skin or on top of your foundation to reduce the shine. 

All of the makeup essentials can be found online at or in-store at our location in Washington, DC. If your college campus is close by, stop in and say hello! Good luck with school and we can't wait to see your best makeup looks on campus!
