e.l.f. Shadow Lock Primer ($3)


This is a very basic eyelid primer that gets the job done: it will help keep your eyeshadow crease-free on lightly to moderately oily lids.

essence Extreme Last Eyeliner ($3.99)


Easily the best drugstore eyeliner pencil, this gives rich color that's blendable for  smokey look, but will stay in place all day without smearing. It's also waterproof!

NYX Butter Gloss ($4.99)


I used to hate lip gloss, until I discovered this one. It's cushy feeling, super shiny with a strong wash of color, and not sticky at all.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil ($4.50)


Use it as an eyeshadow base, a liner, a cream shadow, or a highlight when grabbing one of the white/champagne shades!
