10 Makeup Essentials For College Going Girls

I dedicate this post to all those girls who are studying business statistics, debit and credit accounting, calculating tan theta and cos theta, struggling over the complicated computer programs, recollecting when the battle of Buxar took place, and also a few who are trying to raise Pseudomonas aeruginosa colonies on agar agar – well, in short, to each and every girl who is still in college – on a budget yet wants quality and trendy products in their makeup bag.  This post will include only the basics and only the essentials that the girls require, and are easily available, therefore – no primer and no makeup fixer mist.  Let’s check out the college must-have makeup list 🙂
