12 Products Under Rs 1,000 That Should Be In Every College Girl’s Makeup Kit
Young girls who have just finished school and entered the hallowed gates of junior college have a tough time putting together a stylish ensemble and a makeup kit to match. Having spent a better part of your life in uniform, the freedom to wear whatever you choose to can be both exhilarating and unnerving. The same goes for makeup too. This is why I’ve put together a basic starter kit that every college girl should consider investing in. I call it the beginning of a life-long love affair with makeup!
A BB cream is perfect for daily wear since it offers light coverage and conceals minor skin issues.
If you’re looking for medium to heavy coverage, opt for the True Match Liquid Foundation which is perfect to wear daily as well as on special occasions.
An affordable dupe for the luxurious NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, the Fit Me! Concealer from Maybelline is just as good and also easy on the pocket. Read more about it here.
You simply can’t afford to not have a pressed powder compact in your bag. It’s an absolute essential to mattify an oily T-zone.
This compact palette holds a blush, a bronzer, and a highlighter, which means you don’t need to carry three separate products to contour, highlight, and add colour to your face.
Whether you want to add definition to your eyes by deepening your crease, or trying a bombshell smoky eye, or fill in your brows, this neutral eyeshadow palette from Maybelline is perfect.
This intense black kohl has become my go-to. To know why, read this.
You have no idea what your lashes are missing until you’ve used an eyelash curler. I swear I’m not exaggerating when I say that this nifty device helps to open up your eyes by lifting the lashes right from its roots and curling them upwards. You need to get yourself an eyelash curler. Stat.
No matter how many mascaras I use, I always come back to this volumising waterproof baby. It’s a cult favourite for a reason and really helps to lengthen, separate and thicken your lashes.
Lip liners are not redundant. If you have to invest in one lip liner, make it a nude, flesh-toned colour.
You are young and must experiment with colours. I believe everyone must own one knockout shade in their kit. This matte formula in bright orange is a good place to start.
And while you jump on the neon bandwagon, don’t forget to throw in a basic nude pink lipstick that you can carry off with ease no matter what the occasion.
