Makeup Products You Should Keep in Your School Bag

Whether you're heading off to another year of high school or are on your way to college, one thing remains the same—makeup.

What do we mean by that, exactly? No matter where you go to school, you're always going to have a want or need for makeup, and since you probably don't want to carry around every single makeup product you own, you need to select the few products that will get you through your long days. Not sure what makeup products to keep in your school bag? Just keep scrolling to find out.


School is stressful and tiresome on the best of days, and if you find yourself with a surprise guest on your face, concealer will take care of that right away. Not only will it help to conceal blemishes, but it can also go under your eyes to cover your dark circles and make you look ready for that presentation you worked so hard on!

On those days when you're exhausted from studying all night, mascara is going to become your best friend. Why? It opens up your eyes and just makes you look more alive. Mascara automatically looks like you put lots of effort into your look, even if you just swiped some on really quick in the bathroom.


Botting Sheets

Blotting sheets are another must for your school bag. Chances are that you have to walk all over campus to get from one class to the next, and if you're anything like us, you'll be left feeling a bit winded with a sheen of sweat. The absolute best way to get rid of those excess oils without ruining your makeup is with some blotting sheets.
