When you sent in your college applications, you didn’t know that you would also be sending in an application for four years of stress, sleepless nights and under eye circles that will practically be tattooed to your face. Luckily for you, my fellow collegiates, I have discovered the perfect combination of beauty products to make our under eye bags go from nada to Prada, all while looking completely effortless. There’s nothing better than not wearing make up, but since these products aren’t heavy on your skin, they enhance your natural beauty instead of covering it. As a college girl on the run, my every day make up has to be light, easy to apply and natural looking. That is why these products are currently my go-to beauty items.
