5 Beauty Products For The Girl On The Go

Whether you slept in late or you're always on the move, here are the best quick-and-easy products to use


I have always loved makeup ever since I was little. All the celebrities I looked up to and movie stars I saw were all wearing makeup on TV or in magazines.

Any opportunity I had to cake my face, I took. No, it did not look good and yes I did rock purple eyeshadow a little too often. But now that I am in college, I find myself always rushing to do my hair and makeup in the mornings or before going out with friends.

I never have the time to sit an take the time to do my makeup like a used to. That is why I am bringing you the ultimate beauty products for a girl on the go. These products are easy to use, cut down time on getting ready, and help you look your absolute best at all times.

1. Mario Badescu Rosewater Facial Spray

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

I had never used a moisturizer until I reached college but thank God I hopped onboard. Every time I wash my face, I spray this on afterward. This aloe and rosewater spray is not only easy to apply as your running out of the house but acts as a setting spray too. It keeps your face soft and smooth as well as locking in your makeup for the day.

2. Stila Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow

Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow

Stila killed it with their new line of liquid eyeshadows. They have a glitter version and the shimmer version (pictured above) and they are both perfect for quick looks. With one swipe, you can have an entire eyeshadow look with zero effort. Top it off with a powder eyeshadow to set it and you're ready to go!

3. Duo Brush-On Dark Adhesive Lash Glue

DUO Brush On Lash Glue

Now although dark eyelash glue can be risky when applying to the eyes, it is perfect for two reasons. One is that when you use it, it can make the gap between your eyeliner and your lashes disappear. There are no sections that show your eyelid and make it all blend a bit better. The dark glue can act as an eyeliner and make the false eyelash band appear to be thicker, which is just another reason to love this product.

4. Ultra Glow Loose Powders from Kylie Cosmetics

Kylie Cosmetics Loose Powder Highlighter

This loose powder acts as a highlighter and my favorite champagne eyeshadow. The pigment is insane and being able to throw this on your cheekbones, bridge of your nose, and corner of your eyes is beyond easy. You look glowy and put together within seconds, it is that easy.

5. Morphe Pro Round Blender Brush

Morphe Round Pro Blender Brush

Morphe has some of the best brushes for low prices. This brush, however, is the best thing to happen to makeup gurus all over the world. It blends away any creasing, imperfections, or sharp lines while doing your eyeshadow look. It allows you to make mistakes and blend them away effortlessly.

With all of these new tools and products, you can be a girl on the go and the ultimate beauty guru. Now you can sleep in for those extra 15 mins in the morning knowing that you can moisturize and highlight in seconds. You go girl!

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

We can all do better. Join the fight against racial injustice.

The current state of the world has created the perfect storm for change in America. But with change there is always risk. Although protests have sprung up all across America, COVID-19 is still a very real risk. Luckily, you can help bring about change from the comfort of your own home. And no, I don't mean just by posting a black square on social media.

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.
