Her Campus is thrilled to announce our second annual college beauty awards, a curated list dedicated to highlighting the best in beauty for college women. To get the winners just right we tested products for a year, scoured reviews, met with students and derms, and asked you what’s most-loved in your cosmetic bag.
The products below check all the boxes for college students. They’re affordable, they’re Instagram-worthy, they deliver the best results, and they come from brands that our community legit loves. We’re calling out cult favorites that really work, but we’re also talking about industry newcomers that already own our hearts, among others!
Swiping beauty samples on your hand at the local Sephora is no longer probably a part of your everyday life. With this in mind, we hope the College Beauty Awards can serve as a guidebook to the essentials, voted on by real college women who just adore the heck out of these.
Love you, stay glowy,
The Her Campus Beauty Team
