Maybelline Fit Me Matte Foundation: Who said you had to spend a fortune on foundation? Maybelline’s foundation is a great “fit” for almost everyone! They have the most diverse shade range of any drugstore line, and even rolled out six new shades this year. This foundation will keep your face matte all day and makes your skin seamlessly perfect!

Tarte Shape Tape Contouring Concealer: Shape Tape is a cult favorite for a reason. Though it has only been around for a year, it’s taken the beauty world by storm. What makes this concealer so amazing is that it is extremely full-coverage and long-lasting.

Nyx Glitter Primer: If it’s basically impossible for eyeshadow to stay on your lids all day, eyelid primer is essential! Nyx is a great brand overall, but this Glitter Primer is a notable standout. This primer doesn’t budge once it’s on your eyelids, and works on both pressed shadows and loose pigments.

Urban Decay Heat Eyeshadow Palette: One of 2017’s most hyped launches within the beauty world, the Naked Heat Palette is a must-have palette for anyone’s makeup stash. The warm shadows are super pigmented, buttery, and look good on any skin tone. They are also super versatile – you can create a look suitable for a day at the office, or date night with your partner!

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner: Whether you’re an eyeliner newbie or a pro, this eyeliner is great for all abilities. The felt tip is perfect for simply defining your eyes, or creating sultry cat eyes. It won’t budge or smudge all day, either!

L’Oréal Lash Paradise Mascara: L’Oréal’s mascaras are well loved – and their newest launch is probably their best ever! Lash Paradise has become a cult favorite and comparable dupe to Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. What makes this mascara so amazing is that it curls, lengthens, and volumizes eyelashes and doesn’t make them feel crunchy or crusty.
