Yes it’s still summer, yes it’s still hot out, but it doesn’t hurt to get your game face ready for fall. My beauty routine shifts upon return to life in academia. Lounging on the beach becomes a distant memory, and my tan fades faster than that looming first midterm. But let’s look on the bright side, which is the side that involves a quick trip to Sephora.
1. Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray
Because all those late nights
out with friends in the library shouldn’t require touchups. Spray before and after makeup application. buy here!
2. Kate Somerville Tanning Towelettes
I’m not ready to let go of those tan lines just yet. These have become my favorite form of faux tan, as well as the easiest to apply. I’ll be using these to keep a consistent glow as the leaves begin to change. buy here!
3. Dr. Pepper Lip Balm
Cheap? Yes. Addictive? Yes. This is the only chapstick I use, mainly because it’s dirt cheap and it leaves the perfect sheen of color. The scent is especially nostalgic. buy here!
4. Makeup Forever Powder
I bought this upon recommendation by my best friend, and it’s a foundation game changer . When applied with a kabuki brush, it leaves a flawless, airbrushed finish. buy here!
