1. Garnier Clearly Brighter Anti-Sun Damage Daily Moisturizer

Just because summer’s come and gone doesn’t mean that you can skimp on your skin care. Keeping your skin moisturized is as important as ever as the temperatures drop, and SPF is key year round! This lightweight moisturizer sinks into the skin quickly so you can move on with the rest of your routine, while keeping your face hydrated all day and protected for hours.

2. L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation

The sun kissed glow we’ve appreciated all summer tends to dull during the transition into fall and, inevitably, winter. The newest Infallible foundation gives an all day luminous effect and long lasting coverage so you don’t have to worry about babysitting your makeup throughout the day.

3. NYX Tinted Brow Mascara

One-and-done brows are a snap with this tinted brow mascara from NYX. The small brush helps with precise application, and the formula gives the brows a filled-in, groomed look that lasts all day. Use it lightly for some minor filling in, or go all out and shape your brows with the tip of the wand.

4. Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara

This waterproof mascara is one of my new daily go-tos, with a formula that adds volume and length without clumps or smudging. The classic brush separates lashes and layers on the mascara to build up the intensity of the look in an easy fool-proof application. It holds curl, and doesn’t flake or smear throughout the day.

5. Pixi Multibalms

A quick way to add a pop of color to the lips and cheeks, these multi-purpose balm crayons are a must have for streamlined beauty routines. The moisturizing formula glides onto the skin, with a cream-to-powder finish that looks great as a blush, contour, and coordinated lip color. Just swipe it on, blend with your fingers, and you’re good to go with color that lasts. See swatches of the full collection here.

Using these five budget-friendly products together, you can get a quick fresh-faced back to school makeup look in mere minutes.
