Beauty Essentials to Keep in Your Locker
With barely a month left of summer, the Pink and Black team is already starting to feel a little depressed. As sad as we are to see the summer come to a close, we cannot wait for one of the most exciting times of the year: back-to-school shopping! All you need is brand new clothes, makeup and school supplies to feel like a brand new woman. Make this school year the best with these useful beauty essentials by your side, literally! Here’s a list of beauty must-haves in your locker.
Cosmetic bags and cases come in handy to carry around makeup during the school day. Keep one in your locker stocked with all your makeup essentials. Pencil cases easily double up as cosmetic bags, and they’re super cheap! You can find many cute models at Etsy.
Bobby pins are the easiest things to lose. In case of emergency keep an extra pack in your locker–they’ll definitely be useful!
Don’t be fooled, fall will turn into winter soon enough and your hands will get dry and flaky in no time. You’ll need good moisturizing protection to get you through the cold. One of our favorites is L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Hand Cream; it’s extremely hydrating and smells wonderful!
Makeup Remover Wipes
Your makeup goes through a lot of smudging and creasing throughout the day. Makeup remover wipes are ideal for quick touch ups during school breaks. If you have sensitive skin, we suggest keeping a gentler makeup remover solution and cotton balls in your locker.
Mini Fragrance Bottle and Deodorant
Keep a travel sized bottle of your favorite perfume and deodorant in your locker so you can smell fresh all day long. Stores like Sephora often give out free fragrance samples. You can also get them as a gift with your in-store customer beauty points.
Like this pop-up one from Sephora. Its compact size makes it your perfect locker companion!
Tweezers and Razor
It’s first period, you sit down at your desk and reach down to pick up a pencil and…oh no! You realize you’ve missed a spot when shaving. What to do? It’s always useful to keep a razor and tweezers in your locker for those tricky hair situations that surprise you during school.
Leave the foundation at home and use a concealer for quick touch ups during the day.
Refresh your face with a hydrating face mist! Perfect for when you’re in a hurry right after PE.
You may not be ready to face schoolwork again, but consider your back to school beauty shopping done!
