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.

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants
    to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  2. That is very interesting, You’re a very professional blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed and stay up for seeking more of your
    magnificent post. Additionally, I have shared your web site in my social networks

  3. Fantastic post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.

    Thank you!

  4. You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the article you write.
    The arena hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not
    afraid to say how they believe. At all times follow your heart.

  5. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about
    this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this
    is wonderful blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.

  6. I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?

    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
