Back To School

25 Aug

It’s back to school time here in Morgantown. The population has doubled, and traffic is redonk. Needless to say, we’re usually not too excited when school starts back up. Except this year Pants is going back to school, and kinda super duper pumped about learning, and writing, and making journalism magic again!

In honor of Pants’ triumphant return to graduate school, we’ve decided to do an affordable back to school makeup essentials list!

  • Brushes: Brushes can be an expensive expensive purchase. Especially when you are purchasing more than one brush at a time. This Stila Four-Piece Brush Set is a perfect when you are just building your makeup collection.  It comes with a mix of eye and face brushes. This little set costs about $18 at Stila’s webiste.
  • Lip balm: We love eos lip balm Smooth Spheres, and they come in a variety of flavors and formulas. If you’ll be walking to class, get the Lemon Drop because it contains SPF 15. Also, the shape of these make them easier to find when feeling through your bag. These cost around $3.50, and we found Lemon Drop at our local Rite Aid.
  • Foundation: If you’re going to splurge on one product, it should be your foundation. Getting the wrong formula can make you look orange or break you out. We’ve gotten spoiled with our tinted moisturizers, but we’ve heard a lot of good things from other YouTube beauty girls about L’Oreal Studio Secret Magic Smooth Souffle ($13.99, Target).
  • Blush: Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush is perfect for those mornings when you are struggling to wake up and get ready for class. How could you not smile when you see this blush with the adorable hearts. We have found this blush at target for around $13.

Tell us, do you have any back to school must haves?
