Whether you're a beauty junkie or not, every college girl needs a beauty kit to rely on for moments when sleep just isn't an option because of a Marketing pass due the next day, you want to impress your crush, or for days when you just want to feel extra beautiful in campus. Building a strong kikay kit doesn't necessarily mean owning a handful of creams, contour kits, and hundreds of palettes. In fact, a strong beauty kit is simply owning the basics to help cover up little flaws and enhance your natural beauty to keep you looking fresh all the day in school. To help you build your kikay kits with a breeze, we're listing down the makeup essentials you’ll need for flawless college years.

BB Cream. While foundation is a beauty kit staple, when going to school opt for a lightweight makeup base instead. That way you get to hide blemishes without putting on strong chemicals on your face on a daily basis.

Blush. College is without a doubt fun. But balancing academics and orgs can definitely take a toll on you after some time. For days when you're looking paler than usual, swipe on a few strokes of blush on the apples of your cheeks for a quick color boost.

Brow Pencil. A well-groomed brow can frame your face and highlight your best features in a jiffy. So it is important to always make sure that your brows are well maintained. Just use a brow pencil to fill in the spaces and instantly create a strong and clean beauty look.

Mascara. Mascaras spoil faster than other beauty products, but a good mascara never fails to add drama to your beauty look. Plus, it fakes wide-awake eyes even if all you want to do is lie down and have a good night's sleep.

Tinted Lip Balm. Lip colors are always fun to play with, but for days when you're rushing to get to your next class and want to freshen up just use a tinted lip balm to add color to your pout and keep them moisturized at the same time. #DoubleYay!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
