Mini Beauty Items For Your Backpack

As August comes to an end, we all know what that means: back to school. Those early mornings getting ready and those long nights in the library will only cause your look to change throughout the day (and maybe not for the better).

Pack these things in the little pockets of your backpack and you’ll be able to freshen up throughout the day to make sure you’re constantly looking your best!

Folding Hairbrush

Woke up too late to brush your hair? Do it while walking to class to make sure you look like you didn’t actually sleep in for your 9:00 am.



As fall approaches, it only leads to winter, which means dry and cracked skin. Keep a travel-sized bottle of lotion to keep your skin moisturized throughout those long winter months.


Dry Shampoo

Spray away when you don’t have enough time to dry, wash, and style your hair. This product will give you some extra time to study before you have to wash your hair.



After those long nights in the library, concealer can be your best friend to hide those under eye circles and stress breakouts. Keep this handy for quick and discrete touch ups throughout the day.


Rollerball perfume

Walking from class to class, working out, and even living in close proximity to your room mate, you realize have little time to completely freshen up most days. Boost your scent by using a little rollerball of your favorite perfume for a delightful scent.


Compact Mirror

You’re sitting in class when all of a sudden your crush walks through the door. Grab a quick glance with a compact mirror to make sure your makeup and hair are spot on. We can’t, however, guarantee you won’t stumble over your sentences if you try to talk to them. Good luck with that!



We all know the beginning months of school are still very hot, and we’ve all been there when you stress sweat due to an exam. Carry this around to protect you from those embarrassing pit stains all day long.


Lip Balm

Moisturize and vamp your look during the day with a hint of color with a compact lip balm.


Hair Ties

Hair ties are always running away somehow, so keep some handy for those quick trips to the gym or just when you need your hair out of your face… and to all those missing hair ties out there, I hope you and all your bobby pin BFFs are having an awesome party somewhere. Thanks for the invite! Sheesh!


Oil Absorbing Sheets

Feeling a little oily as your makeup wears off during the day? Blot the oil it away with these absorbing sheets.


Makeup Bag

Last but not least, if you’re like us, then you’re mildly obsessed with adorable bags. If you need an excuse to pick up a cute new one, then make sure to find one that is small enough to not take up too much room in your backpack, but large enough to hold all your new beauty goodies.


So this school year, after you’ve picked up the last of your school supplies, why not treat yourself to a trip to the beauty supply store too. You deserve it!
