These beginner-friendly finds won't break the bank.

Now that on-site classes are finally back, it's the best time to refresh your makeup bag! Since you've probably used up most of your savings on cute school supplies (we're not judging, BTW), we took it upon ourselves to look for practical makeup finds that won't break the bank. Beginner-friendly and multi-purpose, these beauty staples will have your back from Monday to Friday. Shop them below!

10 Makeup Essentials for College Students

1. Skin Tint: BLK Cosmetics Universal Skin Tint SPF 30

Foundation can be a bit too heavy for your unairconditioned classes, so we suggest going with a lightweight skin tint instead. This sheer one from BLK also doubles as a hydrating sunscreen!

Your kilay should stay put even when you're running laps in PE class. That's precisely why we recommend Strokes' smudge-proof brow pen!

9. Makeup Remover: Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

We try to avoid makeup wipes when we can (for several reasons you can read about here), but we'd be lying if we said that all of them are bad. For instance, Neutrogena creates wipes that are extra soft and gentle so you can minimize tugging on your skin.

10. Beauty Sponge: Juno & Co Microfiber Velvet Sponge

Why carry around a whole brush set when a single sponge can do everything? Juno & Co's Microfiber Velvet Sponge will cover all your needs, from blending out your concealer to cleaning up your lip edges.
