As college girls we’re almost always rushing somewhere – to class, to a meeting, to the gym, to social engagements, but you can still refresh and look your best within minutes if you’ve got the right tricks up your sleeve. You’re already beautiful, the purpose of these little pick-me-up beauty tips is just to make sure you feel just that.

Do a quick eyebrow tweeze

Nothing defines the face like a strong brow. Plucking a few stray hairs here and there can give you instant structure, not to mention cut down on your tweeze or wax time when you have more time for it!

Throw on some whitening strips

Many brands now make 5-minute whitening strips, which are perfect to leave on while you’re fixing your hair, getting dressed, or doing those last minute things before slipping out the door. The best part is that it’s also a great alternative for whitening if you have sensitive teeth.


Taking a few seconds to slather on some scented lotion can lift your mood and give you that instant, natural-looking dewy effect. Plus, in the winter months, our skin could always use that extra layer of moisture to battle the cold and dry air.


Exfoliating your hands, arms, or lips is a great way to get a glow, make your skin softer, and keep you feeling fresh. Don’t forget to moisturize after!

Brush your teeth

Simple, but wildly affective. Before you head out the door, a quick brush will have you feeling like you have that morning glow back in seconds.

Fix polish chips

Chipped nail polish can be a girl’s worst enemy some days. There is just an inexplicable rejuvenating feeling accompanying that perfect manicure. Even if you don’t have time to do a full mani, just adding a top coat of the polish you chose to camouflage chips can have your nails looking like new.


The beauty trick I will always swear by. It works not by polishing the outside, but cleansing the inside. Taking a few minutes to close your eyes, connect with your breath, and think positive thoughts will cleanse your mood and bring you back to the present moment. That’s where the beauty comes in – when you’re a happy, present you, you’re your most beautiful self. Give that self to the world!
