Living in a dorm room can be tight, especially when you have loads of stuff. College beauty essentials should not be cut short on the list of things to condense. Luckily you don’t need to fill up all your draws with your beauty products. We’ve curated the best of the best of makeup, skincare, and hair care that every college girl needs.


Less is more for the everyday college routine. Of course get full glam on weekends and nights out, but when it comes to everyday wear go for the natural look. Invest in a tinted moisturizer for sheer coverage, add any concealer that is needed. A swipe of neutral eyeshadow to look more awake for your 8 a.m. class. Add a flush of color to your cheeks with some blush. Finally top it off with some mascara and gloss to complete your effortless natural look.

Skincare in college is super important, you are in a new environment with new elements that may break you out more than usual. Hectic class schedules, late nights wearing makeup, and most likely not the most nutritious diet can all lead to breakouts. While it may be hard on late nights, do not sleep with your makeup on. Clean the day off with a gentle cleanser, add any serums necessary for your skin type. Always moisturize to rehydrate your skin, and don’t forget your SPF during the day for added protection.

Hair Care

Much like skincare, your hair is also adjusting to new environments and stressors. Make sure your shower routine is filled with not only products suitable for your hair type, but also with clean ingredients. Make sure to gently brush your hair with one that won’t rip your hair out like a wet brush. College is notorious for hectic schedules so get some dry shampoo for those days where you are running around. Heat protectant and hairspray are must haves when styling your hair to ensure both health and longevity.
