At this point of the semester, rushing to get ready when you’re running late for class is a universal experience. I mean, who likes waking up at the crack of dawn for eight a.m. lectures? However, oversleeping your alarm shouldn’t be a reason not to look and feel your best. If you want to enhance your features in under 15 minutes, here are five products you can incorporate into your makeup routine to look naturally and effortlessly put-together.

1. NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand

Available in a range of shades at almost any drugstore, this NYX concealer is great for hiding dark spots, discoloration, and blemishes. It is full-coverage and blends smoothly, making it a great, buildable base for the rest of your makeup. 

2. Göt2b glued styling spiking glue

This product is all the rage on Tiktok right now! Countless influencers swear by this spiking glue to lift and shape their brow hairs and hold them in place all day. This glue is also perfect if you want to style some trendy soap brows!

3. Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara (Super Waterproof)

We all know Asian brands bring their A-game when it comes to makeup and skincare. This waterproof mascara by the Japanese brand, Heroine, will hold the curl of your lashes all day long without smearing or running! Thus, you can go about your business, trusting that your lashes will look as immaculate as when you did them in the morning. 

4. Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

Here’s another product frequently talked about on TikTok; Selena Gomez’s brand, Rare Beauty, is well-loved by the beauty community, and for good reason! Choose a shade of blush that is best-suited for your skin tone and follow the one-drop rule. Essentially, due to the highly-pigmented nature of this product, only a single drop—give or take—of Rare Beauty blush on each cheek is necessary to achieve a youthful and rosy glow.

5. Clinique Almost Lipstick

To add a sweet and subtle gloss and tint to your lips, the Almost Lipsticks from Clinique can be rocked alone or in conjunction with other lip products to produce the perfect sheen. We recommend the shade that took over our FYPs on TikTok not too long ago: “Black Honey,” which compliments any and every skin tone. 

So the next time you’re running late to class, work, or some other commitment, don’t be afraid to take a couple of minutes to brush out your eyebrows and lashes and dust some color on your cheekbones. But most importantly, remember that beauty comes from within, and be confident!
