‘Honey Dew Me Up’ primer by NYX

This primer is perfect for you if you love the dewy look as much as I do. It is very easy to apply and smells just like sweet honey.

I apply this primer every morning before beginning the rest of my makeup routine and it truly helps my makeup stay in place throughout the day.

The “Honey Dew Me Up” primer is very affordable and can be found at any drug store such as Walmart or Target, so it is perfect for the college student budget.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil can take care of everything, from hair and skin to nails.

One of the best uses of coconut oil is applying it to dry ends before you go to sleep at night. Let it soak in through the night and rinse out in the morning.

The dry winter air can be very hard on your hair, and coconut oil helps pump hydration back into your ends. Another use for coconut oil is applying it to dry spots on your skin. 

Eco Tools makeup brushes

Not only are these brushes extremely soft, they are also sustainable and eco-friendly. You can find these brushes for a discounted price usually at Marshalls or T.J. Maxx. Target and Walmart also carry them.

Makeup wipes can even take off waterproof mascara.

Makeup removing wipes

They are great for taking your makeup off before bed at night or right before a workout at the gym.

Great brands for makeup remover wipes are Burt’s Bees and Neutrogena. They are gentle on your skin and leave your face feeling fresh and vibrant. These wipes are so effective they even take off waterproof mascara in seconds.

They are also gentle enough for people who wear contact lenses and can also help prevent acne. I find that liquid makeup remover can leave my face feeling greasy and sticky.

These wipes are a great option to add to your beauty routine. I keep a pack of these with me wherever I go.
