2. Waterproof Makeup: Because we know that stress crying is a very real thing for collegiettes during finals season. Keep your look flawless by switching to waterproof formulas during exams with products such as Milani Ultrafine Felt Tip Liquid Liner and Urban Decay Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara

4. Cute and Practical Stationary Supplies: Studying with cute stationary makes the entire process much less painful, am I right!?!? If you love making lists, check out the Clipboard Notepad from Chapters (pictured below) or this beautiful Kate Spade gold notebook from Nordstrom. 

5. ID Holder: Bringing a purse or backpack to an exam can be stressful – especially when you have to leave it at the front or back of the room where you can’t monitor it. These Vera Bradley Zip ID Holders are the perfect way to ensure you have your student ID and bus pass stored safely by your side while you ace that final!
