Items you'll need for your simple 10 min college makeup
  • Tinted BB Cream (for a hydrated and glowing skin)
  • Concealer (choose a color that is slightly lighter than your natural skin tone)
  • Compact powder
  • Eyelash curler
  • Clear mascara and black mascara
  • Brushes (angled brush, eyeshadow brush, blush brush)

Step 1. Apply the BB cream

Start with applying a BB cream

Dab the BB cream on your forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, and neck with your fingers and gently spread it out evenly until it is blended all over your face. The BB cream will give the rest of your makeup something to stick to.

Make sure you blend the foundation around your neck nicely and that there is no color difference between your face and your neck.

Step 2. Conceal the dark spots and blemishes

Apply concealer to cover the dark spots and blemishes

Apply the concealer underneath your eyes, on the center line of your nose, on your chin, below the cheek contour line, in the middle of your forehead, and on any dark spot on your face or neck.

This will cover up any discoloration and blemishes. Blend it evenly on your skin to give it a smooth look.

Step 3. Set your makeup

Finish off with compact powder to set your makeup

Apply the compact powder to blend and set your makeup. Focus specifically on your T-zone, that is, your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin, as they get the shiniest.


The powder will give your face a matte look and will also help your foundation stick throughout the day.

Step 4. Shape your brows

Define the shape of your brows with an angled brush. This will help in giving them a crisp and neat look.

You may also use clear mascara gel to give shape to your brows and hold them together.

Step 5. Color your eyelids

Next is to apply a light eyeshadow

Use a nude-colored eyeshadow and carefully sweep it on your lower eyelid with an eyeshadow brush. You should not press down too hard to avoid injuring the eye. Repeat this step a few times until the color pigment clearly appears.

Step 6. Define your eyelashes

Curl your lashes using a lash curler and a mascara brush

Hold your eyelashes with an eyelash curler and swipe the mascara on the underside of your eyelashes in an upward direction. The mascara will help define your eyes and lengthen your eyelashes.

If you are not comfortable using a lash curler, you may use a clear mascara gel to prep the lashes.

Step 7. Add color to your cheeks

highlight your cheeks
Apply blush to your cheeks

Choose a nude or light-pink blush and swipe it onto the apples of your cheeks using a blush brush. The blush will give a finished look to your makeup by giving your face some color.

Smiling while applying the blush helps to find the apple area of your cheeks.

Step 8. Fill in your lips

apply lipstick
Complete your look with a perfect lipstick or lip gloss

Finish the look by swiping a coat of a light neutral-shade lip gloss or lipstick to keep your makeup look natural.


And you are done with a perfect everyday college look in less than 10 minutes! Wasn’t it simple? Now, you are ready to go!
