5 Affordable Beauty Products You Need Right Now

Do you want a blinding highlight but don’t have $50 to spend on one product? How about a rainbow collection of lipsticks for the price of 1 high end liquid-to-matte formula? Do fancy eyeshadow palettes catch your eye, but the price makes you cringe? What if you could have all of those without breaking your budget? Well, you can! Here are 5 products that will help you slay your makeup without slaying your wallet.

Elf Baked Highlighter

Get. Ready. To. BLIND. This highlighter is sold in drugstores and online, and it’s worth every penny of its $4 price tag. When applied with a highlighter brush it gives a delicate, natural glow. Wet the brush first and you’ll get an extremely foiled, pigmented sheen that you can see from outer space.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips

The trend of velvety matte lipstick has taken the beauty world by storm. However, most liquid lipsticks cost at least $18. Colourpop, however, offers a wide range of liquid lips for only $6 each. They offer just about every color imaginable, from subtle nudes to bright reds to vampy purples. Added bonus: you can enjoy your favorite foods while wearing them, they won’t budge or transfer.

NYX Finishing Spray

There is no worse feeling than spending hours on your makeup just to have it fade after a few hours. NYX Finishing Spray is a refreshing mist to spritz on after you finish your makeup that leaves it looking flawless for only $8. Available in a matte finish and a dewy finish, your makeup will stay how you applied it from morning to night.

Maybeline The Nudes Collection

You don’t have to spend your entire paycheck to get a mix of matte and shimmer natural eyeshadows-this one costs about $8. The Nudes palettes feature twelve pans in a variety of colors and finishes perfect for a sultry smoky eye or a soft, everyday look. They even come in several variations including The Blushed Nudes, The Rock Nudes, and The 24K Nudes.

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner

Winged eyeliner pairs perfectly with just about any eye look, but super pigmented formulas can be pricey. Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner offers an easy-to-draw-with tip, a rich, pigmented formula, and a matte finish all for under $6. As if that wasn’t enough, it is also long lasting and does not smudge or fade throughout the day.

Wanting to expand your makeup horizons can be painful to your bank account, but it doesn’t have to be. Sometimes the best products are those that aren’t expensive at all. And when they cost this little, you can afford to try them all.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
