I’ve never really considered myself as a person who has a “beauty routine”, considering I didn’t even learn how to do more makeup than eyeliner + mascara until my senior year of college
! (No, seriously…)
Despite my minimalist approach, there were definitely some adjustments that had to be made once I arrived at Miami as a bright-eyed freshman.
First and foremost, you no longer have your own private space to do your makeup, shower, and general hygiene activities (or maybe you’re already used to sharing with a sibling, but probably not with 10-30 other girls!) This means that you’ll need to decide which parts of your regimen you want to do in your room with a private mirror + better lighting (such as makeup), and which aspects are easier in the larger bathroom where you have more space.
Everyone has their own personal preference, and it likely won’t take you long to figure out on your own what works best for you…but there are definitely some tips + products that will help make the transition much smoother, and help you get from your bed to the classroom as quickly as possible (meaning you can justify hitting snooze just one more time each morning!)
For the Shower…
