Makeup Bag Must-Haves for Back to School

Makeup Bag Must-Haves for Back to School

I can’t tell if I'm excited or dreading going to school this coming fall. I am officially going into my Senior year of college and my family, friends, and the fact that I am jumping into the real world is freaking me out. So to help escape my madness, I thought I might discuss the must-haves I am bringing back with me this year.


For days I don’t even want to bother with foundation or concealer, I can always count on NYX mascara. I love full and voluminous lashes that will leave me looking refreshed.

ColorBurst Matte Balm

This is a staple for all of my looks. I am a sucker for a beautiful matte lipstick, but I hate when my lips end up dry and cracked by the end of the day. That's why I love this balm - it moisturizes and leaves lips crazy pigmented.

2-in-1 Foundation and Concealer

If I am in a rush, or going for full-face glam, I can count on Milani at all times. The 2-in-1 foundation gives me an even skin tone and can hide dark circles in seconds with only a drop of product.

Blotting sheets

I don’t think I have ever gone a day without blotting, especially in the cold dry air soon to come. I carry a pack with me everywhere! If you can't get your hands on some, brown napkins do wonders too, trust me.

Roll on perfume

This one may not be makeup related, but hey it is a part of beauty. Summer is not quite over, so when I feel like I need some extra help during the day, I just roll some along my collarbone and I am good to go!

Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette & E20 Brush

Basic colors for a cheap price? I mean come on I couldn't pass that up! I simply sweep the darkest brown shadow on my bottom and lower lash lines for a bit of a smokey look. Add some mascara and you look like a thousand dollars in no time. 

Well, that little break was nice - now it is time to get back to the real world I guess. If you liked what was in my makeup bag don’t hesitate to try them for yourself and tell me what are some of your must-haves for school too!
