In college, it’s easy to sleep past the alarm–maybe even set a record for the times hitting snooze. But sometimes when you reach a level of consciousness that tells you it’s really time to get up, it’s already too late. Class is in less than 15 minutes, and you look like you’ve been in slumber for days. So you jolt out of bed, scrambling to find something that resembles a halfway-decent outfit, and you just want a little makeup for the day.
Or maybe you are just feeling a little lazy today. Either way, these products can be your five-minute-makeup-fix.
Especially moving into the colder months, it is important to hydrate your skin. The cold weather can dry out your skin, so you want a good moisturizer, and one that contains SPF 30 is even better.

BB Cream can do more than foundation. One of it’s main selling points is that it’s not just covering up an uneven skin tone–it is working to improve it. There are different types of BB Creams that serve different purposes, including helping acne or wrinkles. The Her Campus pick smooths skin, hides imperfections, hydrates, and corrects complexion.

An undereye concealer can be just what you need if you haven’t been getting great sleep. It helps minimize the appearance of under the eye circles, and it brightens it highlighting the area under your eyes.
