Your pencil case isn't just for stationery...

By Sammy Stewart

You’re at school for six hours a day, five days a week so you wanna be feeling like your best self.

Since you can’t really haul around a beauty bag to each class, we’ve come up with the six essential items every girl should be carrying around in her pencil case. Coz you never know when a an impromptu photo session will be happenin.

Oh, and we almost forgot the best part; they’re totally #TeacherProof.

1. Mustela hydra stick

If you’ve been following Kylie Jenner on Snapchat, then you’d be well aware that babes is 3000% obsessed with cold cream, and nope it’s not just for babies. Mustela’s hydra-stick with cold cream looks like a teeny-sized deodorant but it’s actually a) the only moisturising and glossy lip balm you’ll ever use. B) perfect to apply on dry/sensitive hands before an exam and c) can be used to soothe and calm inflamed pimples. #NEED.

2. Batiste Dry Shampoo

Sometimes we're just ~ceebs~ for PE, coz who wants to go back to class with greasy hair? #NotUs. Thank GOODNESS dry shampoo exists for this exact reason. Batiste's mini dry shampoo is small enough to pop in your pencil case and will keep your pony fresh-as-heck.

3. NO PONG’s 100% natural anti-odorant

Carrying around a big ol deodorant in your pencil case isn't a reality. Instead, opt for a cute, compact, ~all natural~ option like NO PONG's 100% natural anti-odorant. Rather than mask the smell, block pores, and use synthetic anti-microbial chemicals, Sydney-based company, NO PONG, is on a mission to stop the stink one armpit at a time with their extremely effective (and ADORABLE) product!

4. ModelCo Cheek + Lip Tint

The tough reality is school bathrooms have the WORST lighting in the world and will make you feel all sorts of neg. So brighten up your complexion (without your teacher noticing) with a subtle dab of ModelCo's Cheek and Lip tint and you'll be ~feeling yourself~.

5. RIMMEL Brow This Way Eyebrow Gel

If you don't already own a clear brow gel, make it your priority to grab one the next time you're at the shops. One ~swoosh~ of RIMMEL's Brow This Way Eyebrow Gel will instantly give you that lil revival you need in-between that double maths period.

6. ESSENCE All About Matt! Oil Control Paper

When you're not allowed to wear makeup to school, controlling your oily T-Zone can be a #struggle. Luckily, oil blotting papers exist and allow you to quickly absorb all that unnecessary shine and prevent pesky breakouts.

7. Katy Perry Made Love perfume (50ml)

One beauty prod there are no school rules against - whoop! Get a little 50ml sized bottle of Katy Perry's new scent to keep you smelling fresh and floral all damn day.
