My College Makeup Collection


I’ve been kind of MIA lately on this whole blogging thing, and that’s mostly due to the fact that I just started my first year of college. I’ve been trying to figure out the balancing act that is college life, therefore my blog has been put on the back burner for a little while. But today I thought I would do a college makeup collection, because I’m a bit nosey myself and love seeing what’s in peoples makeup collections. It was a tad hard choosing which products I wanted to take with me to college, but I’m happy with what I brought and I definitely brought more than enough. I haven’t even touched some of the products yet, but as a makeup lover, I love having options.



First off are my brushes. I got this cute little gold hammered cup from target to put all my brushes in. I brought with me all the basic brushes that I use daily, like my Zoeva blush, foundation, and powder brushes, my real techniques sponge, and an array of eyeshadow brushes for blending and application.


The first draw in my makeup organizer is full of my Maybelline Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows which I absolutely love. These are a super easy and no fuss option when wanting to add some color onto your lids. I also have in this drawer the Mica Beauty eyeshadow primer.


The second drawer contains my go-to foundation primer, Benefit’s the Professional, as well as a travel-size of Benefit’s they’re real! mascara and Smashbox’s photo finish foundation primer. Along with that I have the Loreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation that I’ve been using nonstop lately. I’ve been loving the natural, dewy coverage it gives.


The third drawer has my Nars palette which has a bronzer, 3 blushes and a highlighter in it. I also have the Urban Decay Naked Skin Pressed Powder and the Revlon PhotoReady SkinLights face illuminator, along with 2 nail polishes that I didn’t know where to put, so I just stuck them in this draw. 🙂


My last drawer has in it a Too Faced Blush, Benefit’s Rockateur blush, the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder, theBalm Cosmetics Maryloumanizer and the Bath and Body Works bronzer in light.


These are some of the palettes that I keep in the white container on top of the clear ones. This contains my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit, the Stila in the lights eyeshadow palette, the Too Faced natural eyes palette, and the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne collection mineral blush duo.


This white container is also home to all my eyeliners, with an array of kohl, liquid, black, brown, nude, and dark blue so that all my eyeliner needs are covered. I also have in there my Nars radiant creamy concealer, my Tarte amazonian clay 12 hour foundation, my Estee Lauder double wear foundation, and my mascaras, along with a collection of lipsticks and glosses (mostly of the nude pinks variety).

That’s all of the makeup I have in my dorm for now. I hope you enjoyed having a little peak into my college makeup collection and as always feel free to comment!
