Everyone is always on the lookout for the most anticipated and best-functioning beauty products out there. However, rarely do we stumble upon ones that make us wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Check out the list below for ten beauty products you didn’t know you needed…until now!
1. Hair Mascara
This product is perfect for when you have a big night out coming up, but just don’t have enough time to touch up your roots or highlights. The mascara-like applicator allows for precision and ease! The coloring is temporary, so once you have time to do permanent touch ups, you’ll still be able to see what areas need work! The mascaras come in many colors and shades, so you can even venture out of your comfort zone and try something a little more bold for that special night out.
The PedEgg is the perfect product for repairing your callused feet after a summer of walking around barefoot. What makes the PedEgg exceptional is its design. The egg-like shape allows it to fit easily into the palm of your hand for a comfortable grip, and the bottom of the egg catches all of the dead skin shavings, so there is nothing to clean up!
3. Facial Sauna
Save time and money by cleansing your pores at home with this product. Many people have tried the old trick of placing your head under a towel with some steaming water, but the facial sauna is a serious upgrade– and way more practical for college dorms! Most facial saunas come with two cones– a smaller one for nasal pores, and a larger one for the whole face. The Conair True Glow Facial Sauna from ULTA beauty offers a cool mist option as well, to help close pores when you are finished.
The perfect way to speed up the time spent drying your nails. Nail polish drying spray helps to dry your nails quickly, while giving it a smooth, smudge-proof finish. The spray takes only about a minute or two to completely dry, leaving you free to go about your day!
A combination between a styling brush and a hair dryer. The hot air functions to dry your hair while the spinning brush styles, adds volume and eliminates frizz. For even more styling options, you can choose to turn the spinning function off, or adjust the heat settings.
6. Virtual Makeup Tester Apps
Trying to decide how to do your makeup for the night? How to style your hair? Or even what color you should dye it? Several virtual makeup tester apps have been released allowing you to instantly “try on” different makeup brands, shades and styles. Some apps will even provide style and product suggestions based upon your own preferences!
7. Wake-up Lights
Tired of being jarred awake by your loud phone alarm every morning? Investing in a light therapy alarm clock could be the answer! These clocks mimic the light of the sun rising, but right next to your bed, so the brightening of the room gradually awakens you. Some clocks even give the option of adding a sound, such as birds singing. These clocks are proven to help you wake up more naturally, helping you to feel more rested when you get out of bed to start your day.
How many times have you put on your mascara or eye shadow after applying your foundation, and had your eye makeup smudge all over your face? A mascara and shadow
shield helps to remedy this common beauty ailment. Simply hold the shield under or over your eye and lashes to prevent makeup fallout from sticking to your skin!
9. Lip Tattoos
Tired of having your lipstick smudge and wear off while out at night? Temporary lip tattoos solve that problem. Just place the tattoo on your lips, wet the tattoo with water and wait. Peel off the paper backing, and viola! You have a temporary lip tattoo that will last up to 8 hours. To remove, just rub your lips with a cotton ball with a drop or two of baby oil. Lip tattoos can be found in many colors and designs.
10. Personal UV Monitor
With winter arriving, many college students turn to unsafe tanning beds to keep their skin glowing. Personal UV monitors can help make sure you are receiving a safe amount of UV activity each day, without going overboard. These monitors can be customized for your skin tone, and will alert you when you have reached your daily limit of UV exposure. Perfect for winter or spring break trips, too!
