My Top 5 Beauty Essentials
Start writing a post

As a lover of makeup, I have an extensive collection of tools and products that are suitable for pretty much any look/ occasion. However, there are only a few products that I consider to be absolutely necessary.

Here are my top five makeup essentials.

1. Concealer

Possibly the most important part of my entire makeup collection. Concealer may seem like something small, but this product is really a multifunctional wonder. When used right, not only can it cover up literally any imperfection, but it also makes a great eye and lip primer.

2. Dark Lipstick

This one may seem a little out there, but a dark lipstick can do wonders for an otherwise dull look. If you need something that's both sophisticated and attention-grabbing, a dark lip is the way to go.

3. Black Liner

Black Liner is my signature look, so it's obviously an essential in my makeup bag. That little black pen is much more versatile than most people might think.

4. Mascara

The one makeup item that can transform any look. Even though making your lashes look longer doesn't seem like a big deal, the right mascara can put any look together.

5. Highlighter

Some may not consider highlighter to be an essential, But I find that it adds sparkle, and that factor is super important for me. With different finishes and colors, and with all its versatility, you can never go wrong with a pretty highlight.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me

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?
