These makeup tips will simplify any student’s routine

College is a hectic period in anyone’s life, and it can be difficult to manage packed schedules. While a lot of us college students love makeup, we don’t often have sufficient time to complete a whole routine. It’s also not completely practical to go to class in a full face of makeup.

It’s annoying to see influencers on Instagram and TikTok taking a luxurious two hours a day to complete their makeup look when we have to go to class, study or run to various club meetings while trying to maintain a social life at the same time. We simply don’t have the time or money for a face full of influencer products.

Despite this, it’s possible to have a gorgeous makeup routine while still being minimalistic and quick! Here’s the ultimate guide to makeup tips and tricks that’ll make any college student’s life easier. 

Skin tint

A skin tint is essential in any makeup lover’s bag. Although, it can look like a regular, heavy foundation, a skin tint is lightweight and doesn’t have as much coverage. Still, it evens out your skin tone and hides any unwanted blemishes.

It’s perfect for a college student on the go or for anyone who thinks running around campus all day with heavy makeup melting off your face doesn’t sound appealing.

Many skin tints, such as Saie Slip Tint and Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint, include SPF and moisturizer in their formula, too, which is fantastic because it saves you time putting two products on. Unlike foundation, skin tints can be applied with one’s fingers, so it’s a quick and easy application.

Powder and setting spray combo

Powder has existed in the makeup industry since the dawn of recorded history and for good reason! Powder is the key to long-lasting makeup, but in recent years, many have discovered that combining powder and a fantastic setting spray can make your face last all day.

With powder you can either get setting powder or finishing powder. For a faster routine, it’s recommended to use finishing powder, as you don’t have to wait for the powder to bake.

Powders such as Charlotte Tilbury Mini Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder and Kosas Cloud Set Setting Powder are fantastic products for college students.

Adding a setting spray is a deadly and efficient combo. After you apply powder, a couple of sprays (a decent one foot away from your face for even distribution) will ensure that your flawless look will stay put all day.


If you’re a bit clueless as to where to place your blush and when in a time crunch, swirl a brush all over the face and onto the eye sockets to bring color back into your face. This has been a TikTok trend for the past few months, and everyone is loving this quick and easy tip for blush.

Some good blushes for this trick are the Rare Beauty Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream Blush and the Makeup by Mario Soft Pop Powder Blush.

Oil blotting

Many young people have oily skin, and despite using powder, makeup can start sliding off the face. Having a tool that can touch that up throughout the day is a lifesaver.

The Rare Beauty Blot & Glow Touch-Up Kit is the holy grail for a college student. It’s easy to throw into any bag and have at your disposal for situations like running, partying or during long class days when oily, sweaty skin is more common. It’s a two-in-one kit that has oil blotting sheets and a powder puff.

It can be easy to completely give up on wearing makeup when faced with the challenges of college life. Taking something off your to-do list is tempting and understandably satisfying, but if you really love makeup, you don’t have to give up on it completely. Hopefully, some of these tips will help you adjust to a new and efficient way of makeup while in college.
