What's On My Face | College Makeup

Picture this: It's 6am. You've just woke up (werking your puffy eyes and bed-head). You have to be out of the house and on the road to college by 7am.
Is this the time to get creative and start experimenting with new makeup looks?... Maybe not. 

With only an hour to make myself look respectable (more difficult than you might think at such an ungodly hour), get dressed, feed myself and leave the house, a go to make up look always makes things that bit easier. So think of this post as a 'What's In My Bag'... for your face. 

^^ Creeper, smiling to myself. haha.

If college has taught me one thing, it's how to do my makeup really really fast in the mornings. haha. This look literally takes me 15 / 20 minutes max! I'm not sure whether it's because the look is that simple or because I've got it down to a fine art. Everything's pretty minimal - your typical neutral eye and nude lip. On mornings like this, highlight and blush are my best friends - they're the easiest way to trick people into thinking you're more awake than you actually are!

Take a look at the products I use every morning, without fail, when I'm rushing off to college...

After writing it out, it looks like a crazy amount of makeup for a 'quick' look. haha. But I promise you, it's super fast!
