Admittedly, I still have nightmares about the community bathroom I used during my freshmen year of college. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my roommate and the friends I eventually made. However, navigating my way around hairy shower drains, unflushed toilets, and waiting in lines to use either are why I enjoy living alone so much today. Above all, my college days were a crash course in learning to procure the best small beauty products because let’s be real; small spaces and big bottles just don’t go together.

This isn’t to be confused with products that are small to begin with, like eyebrow pencils, most lipsticks, and eyeliner. I’m also not a fan of the tiny finds that are impossibly cute, but also pointless because you can only use them once. The best small beauty products are functional for weeks at a time, can fit into a Caboodle, and yes…kind-of cute too. So whether you’re attempting to transform a dorm room into an oasis or settling into a studio apartment, here are the faves that ensure you don’t have to sacrifice a full routine for space.

Foreo LUNA Mini 2

While some prefer traditional cleansing brushes, I’m all about silicone bristles because they’re gentle and way more sanitary. This mini device feels great on the skin and gets rid of whatever makeup you missed while double-cleansing.

Don’t be fooled by this picture. The perfume bottle (co-signed by spokeswoman Zendaya) is as thin as an I-Phone so you can slip it into small spaces or lay it flat for an Instagram moment.
