can I get what you've got at CVS?

I do okay when it comes to doing my makeup and hair, but I pale in comparison to the girls at my university who are able to come to class fully dolled up. What am I missing?

So societal expectations of beauty aside, I have always marveled at how some girls can pull themselves together with so much makeup and have such nice hair when most of the time I can barely manage to have my hair semi-dry by the time I roll into class.
Where did these women learn how to do all this makeup-y stuff and how did I miss this training somewhere along the growing up process? Do people take classes, or go to Nordstroms and insist that someone at the counter teach them? And what about their hair? So many of these girls have hair that's longer than mine and they still manage to look substantially more put together. I mean, seriously, do they teach you this stuff in sororities? And how the hell do they have the time to make themselves this dolled up?
I don't want to look like I'm ready to go clubbing or anything, but I would love to know what resources these girls might have access to just so I can feel more confident in doing my hair and makeup myself.
ETA: I grew up with a tomboy mom and no siblings and one stylish aunt who is more clothes oriented than hair/makeup concerned.
