    First, I think Neutrogena is highly under rated. Their Naturals line is such a good and basic go-to. The lotion is basic but perfectly hydrating and not too heavy. I also just start using there blemish concealer which has salicylic acid in it which I think has helped control any pop up zits instead of just bulking on a normal concealer which makes it worst. Finally, I will forever be a fan of E.L.F’s Instant Lift Brown Pencil. It’s not truly a pencil and not a gel, but a perfect medium. If I am in rush to leave the house, I do not skip this pencil, it makes my face look totally different in the best way. And it is $2.

    Loreal Lash paradise is the bloody best…but it needs to be replaced every 6 months or so or it gets really goopy. You don’t even have to use a lash curler because it kinda does it for you.

    Essence is so great. Love their liquid eyeliners and mascaras.

    Just discovered Flower Beauty’s mascara and it’s REALLY good. My all time fave is Maybelline’s Great Lash waterproof. Mascara though. It’s a great base to layer other mascaras over and keeps my lashes “up” once I’ve curled them.
