Back to School Tips: 5 Products to Use When You Are Running Late



Hey guys! Today I will be starting a new series, Back to School! As you may or may not know, I am currently in college and I am about to enter my third year!  As such, I will be sharing my beauty and back to school tips in every other post that I will make :) The post today will focus on the 5 products I use when I'm running late for class or other things. Of course, you can always opt for not wearing makeup at all but if you are really want too, here are the high end and drugstore products I would use.

Left to Right: Lancome Blush Subtil in Amourose and Wet n Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink

Both of these blushes are of the natural pink variety. For days when you are in a rush, you don't want to be messing with a highly pigmented bright pink, red, or orange blush. Those above are the two I recommend to achieve a natural yet slightly flushed and rosy look.

Left to Right: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo in Dark Brown and Elf Studio Brow Kit in Medium

Once you start filling your brows, you don't go back. As such, filling in my brows is a necessity, even for days where I am in a rush! These two brow products are outstanding, and definitely worth you giving a look!

Left to Right: Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach and Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Concealer in Light

Undereye concealer is a must have for me! I have dark bags due to lack of sleep, and I always want to minimize it as much as possible! Both of these concealers work very well in covering the dark circles I have under my eyes!

Left to Right: Lancome Hypnose Drama Waterproof Mascara in Black and Maybelline the Falsies Volum' Express Flared Waterproof Mascara in Very Black

Mascara works wonders on your eyes, so it's definitely an important product to put on your lashes. A waterproof version, for me, is extremely important because I do not want my mascara to smudge or flake throughout the day. These mascaras do the job beautifully, they keep my lashes curled and they also lengthen and volumize my eyelashes very well. The Lancome mascara is my all time favorite for high end mascaras!

Left to Right: Lancome Lipstick in Love It and Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

Last, but certainly not least, are lip products! I chose these no fuss lip products so that you don't have to spend 5 or so minutes working on your lips! While you can always choose a bright lip color instead, I find that neutral colors require a lot less maintenance, which is always an added bonus!

What are the top products that you use when you are in a rush? Let me know in the comment section below!

    And if you are running SUPER late you could just curl your lashes and skip mascara, it still keeps your eyes looking big and bright :)

    1. Glad you like the tips :D That is a good tip... but I tend to actually not curl my lashes... XD I actually don't because I don't have to damage them... and it also takes like 5 minutes for me to curl my lashes because of how I do it... XD For other girls that do curl their lashes though, that is always something to keep in mind!

    1. The Olay/Covergirl one is really nice :D I find it to be more moisturizing than the Bobbi Brown Corrector and it covers just as good :D Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks for following me! And yay for so many product similarities! I'd recommend the Covergirl one more, mainly because its cheaper. Some people do think its greasy, but I honestly don't think so. It is a bit more moisturizing the Bobbi Brown, which is a lot more drying. Hope I helped you out!
