Easy Finals Week Makeup

I'm back with another finals week post! It's right around the corner much to all of our dismay. My finals week starts next week but I have term papers, projects and final exams all this weekend so no rest for me, well not yet. I seriously can't wait for the days when I have absolutely nothing to do and can lounge around all day in my pajamas. That will be such a glorious time. Okay back on the subject! Today I'm sharing with you my favorite products/semi makeup look for finals week. It's time to trade in your primping time for some extra minutes of studying-  every second counts! So let's get into the this easy, 'no makeup' makeup look! 

Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in translucent// Nyx Blush in peach// Covergirl BB Cream// Maybelline Falsies mascara// Nyx matte eyeshadow in Tryst// Maybelline Fit Me concealer// Burt's Bees tinted lip balm in pink blossom// 

So all of these products are A) ones I have used before, B) ones that I've used for quick, easy makeup and C) all drugstore products that are less than $10. These are some of my faaavorite makeup products for days when I don't have a lot of time to get ready but still want to look put together. Trust me you don't want to see me without makeup, it's pretty scary. During finals week I would savor a few minutes of extra sleep leaving me short on getting ready time. I would use these products and be done with my look in under 10 minutes (more like 5 at the most). Again I got glares from girls because I was wearing real makeup and real clothes. What can I say I'm a slight overachiever. ;)

Obviously you'd start off with a clean, fresh face. Then apply the BB cream and concealer to any dark under eye circles (Lord knows I had them) and any blemishes. Next set your whole face with the mattefying powder. Add some blush to give your face some color. Swipe a neutral brown shadow onto your lids using a fluffy brush. Curl and add a couple of coats of mascara to your lashes to make them flirty. Finally finish off with some tinted lip balm and viola! An easy, simple, 'no makeup', makeup look under 10 minutes! It's light but still covers all it needs to and makes you look fresh and awake and ready to tackle that final! 

What are your favorite/go-to makeup products for finals week makeup or an easy, short on time makeup look? Leave me a comment letting me know! 

Good luck to everyone taking finals! May the grading curve be in your favor! ;) 

Merry Christmas!

  1. Love the end quote! For me--eyeliner, mascara, out the door, conquer exam.

    1. Haha thanks! I thought it was fitting! ;) I can do without eyeliner but mascara is a must!
