Back-to-School Cool

Going back to school is stressful, and finding a beauty routine to fit in your schedule can be even worse! Here are some of my back-to-school staples for an effortless, easy semester back in class.

Yes To Tomatoes Acne Control Gel Cleanser
Yes To Tomatoes Acne Control Gel Cleanser

Hormones can get out of control, and stress doesn't help the problem. I've found that this cleanser is easy on the skin, moisturizes it and clears any blemishes up. Even better, it's 99% natural, paraben-free and only $7.59 at Target.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

It took me a while to try this product out, because I thought it was too expensive ($38 at Sephora) and overhyped. But I used this powder one time and MAN, does it deliver its promise! It's translucent, so it works for every skin type and shade, plus it helps keep makeup in place for hours on end.

tarte™ lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara
tarte™ lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara

Perfect for when you just want a simple concealer/powder/blush/mascara makeup combo. This mascara lengthens and volumizes without clumping. It's one of my favorite recent finds and I'm constantly reaching for this one out of all my other mascaras because it's so great.

Simple Nourishing 24-hour Facial Cream - 1.7 oz
Simple Nourishing 24-hour Facial Cream - 1.7 oz

For only $10, this moisturizer is a one-stop shop for fixing dull, dry skin. It is cream based, but doesn't leave your skin greasy or oily. Put it on morning and night after washing your face and you'll feel glowing all day!

It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Conditioner plus Keratin

You really can't go wrong with this brand and their products. I blow dry my hair after every wash (because otherwise I look like a Poodle) so I definitely need some damage control. This product not only detangles your hair, but protects it from heat and leaves it soft and silky throughout the rest of the day. You can find this at Target for $14.99.

boscia Pink Peppermint Blotting Linens

These sheets are perfect for you if you're like me and suffer from oily areas on your face. These are much better than applying more powder and keeps your skin from trying to produce MORE oil. Plus, they're only $6 at Sephora!

M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer
M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer

For dark circles or bags, I use this bad boy to solve all of my under-eye woes! MAC has a wide range of shades and these last absolutely forever. I also use this to cover up blemishes/redness whenever acne pops up, and it works brilliantly. I've tried liquid-based concealers and find that they tend to crease and/or melt off your face (especially during hot summer days) so I've always ended up coming back to this concealer.

R+Co Tinsel Smoothing Oil

After I blow my hair dry (you can also use this before), I take one pump of this oil and run it through my strands. I'm not joking when I say this stuff smells incredible. To top it off, it makes my hair so soft and helps it from feeling dry at the ends.

Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

THE BEST liquid liner on the market. The felt tip makes creating that perfect winged eye so simple and easy, plus it doesn't smear or run down throughout the day.

Vaseline® Lip Therapy® Original Mini

Especially during the colder months in Fall, lips are prone to getting dry and being overlooked! I use the Rosy Lips tin to keep my lips looking plump and healthy. It adds just a bit of color as well as smelling great, so it's perfect for using on its own or as a base before putting on lipstick. For $3.49, this is a steal!

Bath & Body Works Signature Collection BE ENCHANTED Fine Fragrance Mist
Bath & Body Works Signature Collection BE ENCHANTED Fine Fragrance Mist

Luckily, this amazing body mist is still available at Bath & Body Works for $14! I love keeping this mist in my purse for when I just want to smell heavenly. It's fruity, sweet and refreshing.
