Being a college student, I know that shopping for makeup can be stressful. Looking cute shouldn’t break the bank! Here are five of my favorite picks.

1. Rimmel Pressed Powder

This stuff works wonders to erase your shine. Everything stays in place all day!

2. L’Oréal Telescopic Mascara

My lashes have never looked better! This lengthening and lash separating mascara is a must have.  

3. L’Oréal Lash Paradise

I had to have two mascaras on here because they both do wonders for my eyes. They make my lashes look like falsies!

4. Maybelline Concealer (Fit Me Matte and Poreless)

These are raved about on social media for being full coverage and not too cakey. I highly recommend this brand in general!

5. NYX Color Drops 

This is a relatively new product out there, but these are so easy to blend and are quite long lasting. This product also has an amazing shade range!
