Getting up and going to class is enough of a challenge. So when it comes to makeup, it’s best to keep things simple and fresh. I’ve listed three essentials for my school makeup routine that are quick and easy!

Saie’s “Slip Tint” Tinted Moisturizer

Foundation is far too heavy for a day of classes. To feel fresh-faced and moisturized instead of cakey, try out Saie’s “Slip Tint” tinted moisturizer.

It has SPF in it to protect your skin and has some light coverage for any redness or blemishes.

Clinique’s “Black Honey” Lipstick

This Clinique lipstick has been a favorite of mine for a while. I don’t always wear lipstick to class, but when I need a bit more color on my lips, I’ll always resort to “Black Honey.”

It’s super natural-looking and adds a bit of warmth to your face without being overbearing. I like to just dot some on instead of applying it heavily, and I’m obsessed.

Maybelline’s “The Colossal” Waterproof Mascara

I always go for waterproof mascara, as it seems to be the only kind that keeps my lashes curled all day.

This Maybelline option is super affordable and makes my lashes look amazing. It’s also super smooth and not at all clumpy.

If you need a bit of extra product to look and feel good for class, try out some of these!
