Are you done with your college admissions? We are sure you do! We know how excited you are for the first day, and baffled too! While you are certainly contemplative about your course structure and the prolonged lectures, you must be also wondering about your appearance for the college. It is much easier to select a dress and pair it with matching shoes and accessories, based on the daily hints that we already get through various sources; however, it is indeed a task to zero in on the must have make-up beauty products for college.
Not just that you have to maintain your look for the entire day without looking grim and drained out, but you also cannot carry much in your already bulging backpack. Besides, as a college goer you also need to find products that are within your budget. So here we are today to your rescue with the 5 must have beauty products for college, that will get you going for the entire day looking all fresh and glowing at an affordable price.
Keep it Clean
One of the most important ways to maintain a fresh look for the entire day is to keep your face clean. Rather this should be your first step just after you reach college. Since, simply washing it off with plain water may not help remove the dirt, oil and grim you gathered on the way, carry your regular face wash (preferably in tube form to avoid dripping), and or face wipes.

Use either of them at least twice in the day and then apply makeup for best results.
Screen Your Skin
Come summer, monsoon or winter, one mantra which you should never forget is to shade your skin up with a good quality sunscreen. Use one with higher Sun Protection Factor (SPF) between 9am to 3pm when the effect of the harmful sun rays is at the peak. Make sure you use one which suits your skin and is sweat free to avoid end up looking greasy.

In order to impart a matt look to your skin translucent powder works best for college. Use one which has sunscreen properties to add up to the benefits of the sunscreen which you have already applied.
Hide your Imperfections
Give your skin that flawless finish with a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer. You can use it daily based on your convenience, for that natural glow. However, it works best when paired with a sunscreen, as the cream itself does not come with any sunshield properties.

But, if you are not comfortable of loading your skin with another product over sunscreen, you can simply use a light concealer that can hide the flaws perfectly. Using it just for the dark circles or the imperfections should do the magic.
You simply cannot finish your make-up without defining your eyes. Whether the winged eye look, or the smudged look some girls just cannot do without the eye makeup. Infact, it does brighten up your face instantly without needing a compact powder or foundation.

Defined eyes take away the attention from your otherwise dull or tired face. Try them in shades of green, blue or purple for a different look, and moving away from the mundane black. Choose one in the form of pencil, pen or liquid you should not go overboard keeping in mind that you will be attending college, and not a function.
The last touch to any makeup would be to highlight your lips, as lips without even a dash of color will give you a washed out look. Wearing a lipstick to the college may not be apt since you would be attending lectures; hence, tinted lip balms which are all over the market now are your best option.

You can even use a lip gloss instead, one that offers a lighter tone. This will not only keep your pouts moisturized, but also make you the focal point.
So keep these 5 must have beauty products in your college bag today, and you are all set to rock the scene.
