Back-To-School Beauty Essentials

back to school

  1. Drying Cream, $17. Call it the acne cream that conceals. It’s a two-in-one product that combines skincare with makeup, working to help dry out existing blemishes before they spread while lightly covering any red bumps. Perfect to bring on the go for any surprises that might pop up during the day.
  2. Rosewater Facial Spray, $7. The perfect instant wake-me-up in the morning or soothing refresher post-gym class. A few spritzes wakens the complexion and leaves the loveliest rose fragrance behind.
  3. Lip Wax, $5. Chapped lips are no fun – keep a tube on hand so your lips are always hydrated whenever, wherever.
  4. Travel Bag, $15. This sturdy canvas bag is the perfect place to store all your beauty essentials or school supply knick-knacks so you can keep your beauty drawer, backpack, or locker better organized.
  5. Rebecca Minkoff Sunglass Pouch, $75. Protect your sunnies or eyeglasses from bumps and bruises clunking around in your school bag in this adorable leather pouch. Pick one in a bold color to help make hunting for your glasses amongst the books that much easier.
  6. Rebecca Minkoff M.A.B. Tote, $295. We love this classic black leather tote. It’s built sturdy to carry you (and your many books!) throughout the semester and beyond, and big enough to fit your laptop, folders, textbooks, and then some.
  7. VS Pink Canvas Backpack, $39.50. For a more utilitarian look, we love a well-made canvas backpack that’s perfect for school days and weekend trips.
  8. Filofax, $49. Organization’s the name of the game! And Filofaxes are the only planners we trust with our lives. Literally.
  9. Armour Beauty Kashmir Lip Gloss, $21. This beautiful shimmer pink gloss is the perfect no-fuss answer for the busy girl on-the-go. Perfect for touching up without a mirror, and is a universally flattering shade. Plus, it’s packed with natural oils and butters to help keep your lips moisturized and smells delicious to boot.
  10. Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, $27. A travel-friendly palette of all the neutrals a girl could ever need that fits easily into any little makeup bag or pencil case amongst other school essentials. It doubles as a great compact mirror too – not too big, but not too small. Just right.
  11. Toms Classics. A busy school day calls for tons of walking. Keep comfortable while doing good by the world with a pair of classic, canvas Toms. Cute with a cause? We’re all for it.
  12. Bic Ballpoint Pens, $6.99. What you write with matters! Back in school we bought a box of these ballpoint pens and it lasted for over a year; and to this day, it’s on our repeat order list from Staples. You can never have enough pens – especially with the amount of work you’ll be doing.
  13. iPhone case. We like sleek, chic, and practical: our phones are bound to bump around in our bags, so what better way to protect our most beloved gadget than with a fun case? Just don’t let the professor catch you reading away on our app
