Something ALL Students Need..
Not that you’ve noticed, but I’ve not been updating you with my beauty shenanigans as regularly as I used to, and that’s because of the impending doom that are my exams. Where I usually think of lip gloss and hair spray as of late my thoughts have been preoccupied with things like Foucalt’s Conception of Power, feminism in the workplace, employment law and business in the Middle East. Interesting but nowhere as interesting as my usual activities which does funnily enough include avoiding revision at all costs!
Anyway, one of the inevitable things that happens when you’re a student is that your sleep pattern completely reverses; bedtime for me nowadays is honestly 4-6am, just when everyone’s waking up to start their day. And a couple of hours later I’m back up to do everything all over again. For now I’m not complaining, but I’m coping and one of the things that’s helping is cult favourite Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. When I’ve only slept for 4 hours, this little pot of awakeness (I don’t care if I’m a student at university, I’ll still make up words if I want to!) hides that my night didn’t entail dozing off under my duvet but instead involved reading and repeating legislation dates and names of dead academics to myself out loud. Just a couple of dabs of the Creamy Concealer using my ring finger – the most gentle out of your five fingers – and any memory of the previous nights studying is completely erased. The concealer is yellow based, and so it counters the purple and bluish undertones of dark circles. If it’s one thing that I need during exam season it’s definitely this and a miracle.
