Beauty Essentials for the Those on the Go

As a busy college student, I’m constantly managing my time efficiently so that I always have time for everything I need to do that day. Sometimes things like putting on makeup can seem like a luxury especially if you have a morning class, but I found that these beauty products are not just quick to put on, but worth it for an everyday look that will last all day!

Optional beginning: Though I understand that many probably don’t have time for this, but if you do I highly recommend cleansing and washing your face prior to any makeup application!

Step 1: Prime: I’ve been using the Porefessional Face primer from Benefit cosmetics and you would not believe the difference this makes in the way your face looks after foundation/bb cream application. Just a dot or two on each cheek goes a long way!

Step 2: BB Cream from Smashbox. At $39 it’s not the most inexpensive product ever, but it’s well worth it if you don’t want thick foundation but neither do you want a watery BB Cream. It's full coverage but it applies and feels like a face lotion. I’ve used this for years and I swear that it is worth every dollar.

Step 3: Concealer: While still experimenting somewhat with concealers I have not been disappointed yet with the buys I have made. This month I’m trying the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer whose spongetip makes application easy and quick especially for those days when you're running late and need to cover those panda eyes.

Step 4: Though I swear up and down that Stila is one of the best liquid eyeliners to exist, the Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining pencil has been given the same hype I give Stila. Apply it in any way you’d like!

Step 5: Lastly, is some sunscreen and a setting spray! UV protection is one of the most important steps in step care and incorporating this step just before you go outside is one of the best ways to make sure that you're getting proper protection from those harmful UV rays.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
