While we wish summer lasted forever, we’re also totally ready for fall! Cashmere layers, cozy scents and a brand new beauty regime – sounds just lovely. With school just around the corner, we’re updating our summer beauty essentials to our fresh fall favorites! Check out what beauty weapons are our must-haves for our autumn makeup arsenal.
Long days of lectures leave us glamazons with little time for touch-ups. There’s barely time to scarf down a quick lunch while running through the halls, nonetheless anything else! The Body Shop comes to the rescue with its Vitamin E Face Mist. This soothing spray moisturizes and refreshes with – you guessed it – plenty of vitamin E. It’ll keep that visage looking Grade A ready all day long.
Finding new scents for each season is one of our favorite things. We’re obsessing over Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s line Elizabeth and James and their gorgeous selection of perfumes. Not overly feminine but still mysteriously alluring, we’ve chosen Nirvana Rose for the fall. Keep this conveniently-sized tiny tube of it in your bookbag for when you meet all the new students (ahem, especially the cute ones) come this fall.
These multi-purpose cleansing wipes come in handy so often, we barely know what we did without them. While they might seen like an odd beauty product to carry to school, they’ve saved our glamorous selves more times than we can count. From de-scuffing leather to refreshing skin to cleansing our faces after too many hours spent in dusty libraries, these cloths are the perfect solution for every little mess and accident you’ll encounter.
The stresses of school can take a toll on our skin and the last thing we want is to break out from assignment and exam overload. E.l.f makes one of the best primers out there and it’s a beauty bargain and under $10. Their Studio Blemish Control Primer contains Salicyclic acid to keep acne to a minimum while also protecting your skin from your daily makeup application.
You’ll want to keep your backpacks, bookbags, or purses as organized as possible and what better way to keep your highlighters separate than with a makeup bag? This Tartan + Twine one is super cute in color, compact enough to fit in almost any schoolbag but also big enough for the essentials.
