We’ve all had those mornings when we wake up with just enough time to throw on some sweats, grab some coffee, and dash out the door to make it to our class that starts in 20 minutes! Though I do think this behavior is totally acceptable, I also think waking up on some mornings and getting cute for class is just as important!
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think you have to wake up and pile on makeup like you’re attending the SAG Awards (speaking up which, check out our co-founder’s, Kindra, coverage of the SAG Awards on hollywoodlife.com) but by adding an extra 10-15 minutes to your morning, you can accomplish a cute, fresh and everyday look with these fabulous products below!
Maybelline Great Lash is one of my favorite mascaras of all time! You cannot go wrong with it and it can be found in any drugstore for about $5.99.
e.l.f is one of the greatest makeup brands ever invented! Their products are awesome and everyone from top makeup artists to students on a budget can use this makeup. e.l.f. eyeliner sells for about $1.50 and is commonly found at Target. On those days you’re in a rush, just throw on some eyeliner to brighten those eyes and totally transform your look!
L.A. Girls Pro Conceal is a newfound favorite of mine. I’ve used all types of concealer and this is one of the best. You can get the same type of quality coverage from this as you will from MAC concealer. The difference? MAC will run you about $17 a container whereas L.A.Girls is about $3! You can find these products in a variety of hair and beauty stores. Concealer is ESSENTIAL ladies! And for this cheap price point, you can definitely afford to add this to your makeup kit.
Bronzer is a year around necessity of makeup lovers everywhere! During the winter it adds that beautiful, dewey glow to skin that we all have during summer months. You can get this Maybelline Fit Me! Bronzer at any drugstore for about 6 bucks!
So I know the heading of this post says “5 Makeup Essentials” but, to me these last two go hand in hand! Lip balm and Lip gloss. During these winter months especially, it’s important that you moisturize your lips to prevent cracking and peeling. Invest in a good all natural lip balm and top it with some cute tinted gloss! Acure Organics is a new favorite of the PABPG team. All of their products are organic and awesome! You can purchase their argan oil lip balm for $3.99 and their fabulous, luscious glosses for $7.99. Both are available on their website.
There you have it ladies; 5 (well technically 6) Makeup Essentials for class. Begin to incorporate these into your makeup kits because these simple products can make a world of difference!
