Ah summer... the end is near and the dreaded first day of school is upon us. The late summer nights and late mornings are no longer and 6 am alarms and homework begin. The start of school is definitely a time of stress, chaos and routine that no one (except maybe our parents) wants to deal with. School can be a bit daunting. The constant need to be trendy and looking good can be a struggle. There are so many choices out there for different products. Which ones are reliable and wont leave you regretting your choice and looking unprepared?? Who wants to get up extra early to look good??? Luckily we are here to help. Here are a few products that make our list to help ease the pain of starting school and helping you look fresh and beautiful without the extra effort:
Camelbak Water Bottles: Hydration is key to waking up looking fresh and clear. With its strong and durable plastic and straw top feature, why not make Camelbak a back-to-school favorite to help keep your refreshed, hydrated look? The durable plastic will not break under the weight of books or rough travel inside your backpack. The mouth piece takes a bit of time to get used to, however. Having to bite down onto the rubber mouth piece to drink water is very different from guzzling water down. We like it because is prevents the eventual spillage on our clothes or stuff. Make sure to clean the removable mouth piece often and well. It has a tendency to get dirty and germ ridden.
Love Your Selfie makeup palette by PÜRMinerals: Waking up is hard, let alone trying to find the right makeup combination. Well, this palette can help make your morning makeup routine so much easier. It has the perfect color of eye shadows, mascara, blush, bronzer, lip gloss and illuminating powder all in one small convenient palette to keep your morning fumbling down to a minimum. It even comes with step by step directions on how to create a perfect daytime look and a perfect nighttime look. It does not contain an eyeliner, but you can always find one to supplement the colors used.
e.l.f. Studio Gotta Glow Lip Tint: If you are looking for a lip color that is a bit more subtle, check out this lip tint. Don’t be afraid of the fluorescent pink color! It changes and adapts to the color of your lips. No blending required. Smooth on and go.
OGX Coconut Shampoo, Conditioner and Weightless Hydration Oil: One thing that we love about coconut products is that the smell seems to last forever! OGX collection leaves your hair smelling like you have showered in the tropical islands. The shampoo and conditioner leave your hair feeling clean and not greasy. If you have thick or curly hair, we suggest that you add the hydration oil or another leave in product to help untangle your hair.
With our guidance, we hope that you will be prepared for the start of the school year! These products will make the transition from summer a tad bit easier and leave you looking you absolute best!
