It’s that time of the year once again, exam stress is kicking in, course work essays are on an all time high and the last thing on your mind is looking cute for the very busy uni library.

Below I have included 3 items to get you from basic to baddie(ish) in time for your 9 am lecture in no time.



Lipgloss has definitely come back in style, especially during the colder months when the weather is a usually very harsh on the skin. Lip glosses instantly takes you from a 4 to a 7.5 in just a matter of seconds even at times when the rest of your makeup is basic. I recommend this £6.00 Kiko lipgloss which comes in a range of shades and is highly pigmented.


Tinted Moisturiser/BB cream

It’s exam period which obviously means stress. Whats the first sign of stress on your face? Spots/bags under the eyes. Get a tinted moisturiser which basically acts as foundation in the form of a cream. It’s great because it’s essentially acts as a two in one by getting rid of dark circles, spots and signs of stress on your face whilst also hydrating the skin – giving your skin back that glow that has been sucked out of it. Most tinted moisturisers or BB creams also contain SPF which gives your skin great protection from pollution and external stress.



Now we’ve all heard the saying.. eyebrows shape the face, and it is completely true! If you know you are having a not-so glam day fill in your brows with the very cheap and cheerful MUA eyebrow pencil just for £1 at any Super drug store. For more definition try a few shades darker than your natural skin tone dressed with a nice nude gloss, and it will balance the natural look in time for your 9am lecture.
