Back to School Makeup Must-Haves

Image Source: Sephora
Whether you’re already in school or headed back soon, we've all been there! The pressure to “look good” and fit in can be a struggle– especially when you need to wake up early and throw on your makeup before hitting the books. I’ve gathered a few of my personal favorites to help your makeup make it through those long hours in the classroom, and even that sweaty gym session. These five awesome items will have you looking flawless in no time on busy school mornings. 

1. Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser: Stress and forgetting to wash your face are two of the most common issues when it comes to the skin. A late night of studying can definitely contribute to not-so-pretty pores. Luckily, the Pore Eraser is a perfect fix. By simply applying it over your t-zone, Baby Skin works like magic to shrink those suckers down and have your skin looking smooth as a baby’s bottom in a matter of minutes.

2. Rimmel London Stay Matte Face Powder: Matte makeup is a must for back to school! This product will keep your makeup in place all day, prevent skin from looking oily, and also helps you avoid those midday bathroom touch-ups. 

3. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer: Whether you use it for picture day or every day, Smashbox Photo Finish is the primer to keep your makeup in place all day long. Put this on before applying any other makeup to your skin, and prepare for greatness!

4. Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick: This Neutrogena lip color will not only stay in place throughout the school day, but will also keep your lips smooth and hydrated. This easy application lip balm comes in a plethora of shades, giving you an option for almost any outfit.

5. CoverGirl Bombshell Mascara: Sometimes we just cannot find the time to do an entire eye makeup look when trying to make it out the door on time. If all else fails, be sure to apply a quick coat of mascara! The Bombshell Mascara will last you all through the day, and it creates flawless looking lashes. If you want to step it up a notch, there’s even the waterproof option for PE!

Now that I've shared my back to school must-haves, I want to hear all about yours! Comment below with your favorite makeup items!
