Even during quarantine, there will be times we can’t relax in our sweatpants and have to leave our dorms. No worries though, you don’t need a full face of makeup. I’ll give you a few makeup tips that are quick and effortless but will give you a polished appearance.

- Tinted Lip Balm/Moisturizer
It’s always good to have some lip balm, especially if you live in a cold area (like Bryn Mawr) or in the wintertime to avoid chapped lips. There are a wide variety of colors available that give a natural look or pop of color. I recommend the Vaseline Rosy Lips tin if you want a simplistic style since it has a subtle pink hue and stays on your lips for a long time. If you would prefer a pop of color, the Revlon Kiss Lip Balm is best since there are a wide selection of colors, and it stays for a reasonable amount of time.
Concealer or foundation can come in handy, especially under your eyes after an all-nighter. I recommend you use an oil-based foundation since it gives your skin a smooth, porcelain-like look. However, you should use a matte foundation if you’ll be out for a longer period of time.
- Moisturized Eyelashes
Just because your eyelashes are a small part of your face does not mean you shouldn’t take care of them! Eyelashes are very important in terms of health and beauty. I suggest moisturizing them with a hydro booster and then curling them. This will give the illusion that you have mascara on but does not damage your eyelashes like mascara.
