Is there anything worse than an 8am lecture? It can be hard to find motivation in the morning to get ready, especially if we’re rushing to make it to our morning classes on time. Often we feel better when we feel put together so these are 10 beauty tips for college that won’t take you all morning and will allow you to feel prepared for your school day.
1. Shower The Night Before
The first beauty tip for college is a really simple solution to saving time in the morning and will allow you to get a few more minutes of sleep. Who doesn’t love more of a sleep in?! By showering the night before you can get straight out of bed and immediately into your beauty routine. It also allows you time at night to pamper yourself which you wouldn’t usually have to spare the morning of a class. So take your time and maybe use a face mask, you’ll wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
2. Wash And Dry Your Hair Before Bed
Much like showering the night before, having your hair washed and then dried before you go to sleep is another beauty tip for university students. Drying your hair can often be incredibly time consuming and at times frustrating! By doing this before bed you can take all the time you need, fix what you need to and not have to worry that you’ll be late for class because of it.
3. Cleanse Your Face First Thing In The Morning
Having a clean canvas is important and a beauty tip for university students everywhere. By waking up and immediately washing your face not only will you feel much more awake to the world, this is particularly relevant for those of us who has 5am starts – rough, right! This also can help avoid spending time priming your face before you can even begin to get ready.
4. Have Your Outfit Picked In Advance
Have you ever planned an outfit in your head and imagined a specific look? Then the morning of your university day you haven’t been able to find the right shirt and been rushed to change your outfit, starting your day off on the wrong foot? We’ve all been there and it sucks! One beauty tip for university is to have your outfit picked out in advance and lay it out before you go to bed. This way you know exactly what you’re wearing, where to find it and will be able to quickly get dressed with no stress involved whatsoever!
5. Get Dressed Before Doing Your Makeup
This beauty tip for university seems a bit strange but it will help you save time in the morning! By getting dressed before doing your makeup you don’t have to worry about ruining your makeup while lifting your shirt over the look you’ve just spent time creating. It also means you can just set your face and be off!
6. Use Setting Spray As A Primer
This beauty tip is fast and efficient. Using a setting spray as a base for your makeup is quick and can also be both hydrating and refreshing. Using a primer can often be a process but we all know how important it is to fill in our pores and prepare our skin. As you’ve already cleansed your face this is a good alternative, so spray your face instead and get ready to beat!
7. Use A Beauty Blender
Applying foundation or CC cream with your hands or a brush can take some serious time in our morning. So this beauty tip for university is to use a beauty blender instead. First made moist and then used to spread the creme around your face can take on a number of minutes. This tool is agile and can also be fun!
8. Use Bronzer As Eyeshadow
Eye look’s can often take the most time when getting ready for Uni in the morning. To save time a beauty tip is to use your bronzer as your eyeshadow. Not only will it tie your look together it also adds incredible depth to your eyes and enhances your crease. How can you say no to something easy to do but equally effective!
9. Use Lipgloss Not Lipstick
We all love a bold lip, this can sometimes make us feel more confident and really add to a look but the time it takes to apply it in the morning and also reapply it during the day is just time a university student does not have. Lipgloss is a good alternative. This beauty tip for university can make your lips look more plump and is also easy to apply and reapply in class without drawing too much attention.
10. Wear Your Hair In A Loose Look
By wearing our hair either loosely let down or in a loose pony tail or bun we intentionally look like we’ve spent hours on our hairstyles. Except we haven’t! Try wearing your hair in a messy bun or curly waves and watch the compliments roll in.
