Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seems to be going your way? Hair just won’t be tamed, makeup doesn’t look right and you’ve broken out again? Sometimes the beauty gods can be fickle, but don’t worry, there are ways to combat all types of beauty emergencies. Here are five miracle beauty products that every college girl needs in her beauty arsenal.
When school is in full swing, we college girls can easily get caught up with our busy schedules. Late night studying and early morning classes can be the ultimate enemy to our hair. But fear not, bad hair days are now a thing of the past! Dry shampoo is the miracle product that can cure an oily scalp and prevent product buildup while giving your hair a healthy boost of nourishment. Simply spray a fine mist over the hair and close to the roots and your hair will be good as new. Try Alterna’s Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo ($18).
Whether it’s right before picture day or a first date, you never know when a pesky zit might pop up. The beauty-savvy college girl must always be at the ready for such emergencies and Neutrogena’s On-the-Spot Acne Treatment ($5.70) is just the cure. A dab of this on the problem area before bed will miraculously remove any unwanted acne so that you can start the day with a fresh face.
The secret to a beautiful complexion goes far beyond flawless makeup and starts with a clean canvas. Clarisonic’s Skin Cleansing System ($99) may be on the pricey side but it’s well worth the investment. The Clarisonic can remove makeup that even your makeup remover couldn’t, while cleansing the skin and removing dead skin cells. It’s truly a miracle product because after just one use, you’ll be able to see a dramatic difference.
This new makeup phenomenon has swept the beauty world by storm and for good reason. Beauty Balms are the true miracle product. They are designed to do everything a primer or tinted moisturizer does but with more of a kick. This product is perfect for a girl on-the-go because it can hydrate, brighten, cover and protect all at the same time. Most BB creams have a high SPF ranging from 30-45, which is highly important for your skin’s health. For more coverage just sweep a thin layer of foundation on top and you’ll be ready to go. Try Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream or Clinique’s Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 ($37).
Ever applied your makeup to find that your face still looks powdery or cakey? Fear not, MAC Fix+ ($10) is the answer to your beauty problem. With just a light spritz across the face, this product will help set your makeup while removing that unwanted powdery look. It can also be used to create highly pigmented shadows. Just spray it on your shadow brush and mix it with any shimmery eyeshadow to create a foiled look on the eye. You can also use this product on a clean face right before bed. It has calming ingredients such as green tea and chamomile, which can act as a great bedtime refresher. This versatile product is a must for any college girl, so be sure to head to your nearest MAC store and pick up a bottle!
Now that you you know about these five miracle beauty products, go ahead and test them out. With these in your kit, you’ll never have to face a bad beauty day again!
