1. Almay Intense i-Color Gel Smooth Liner
This eyeliner has been one of my go to eyeliners for years.
One of the reasons that this is my favorite eyeliner is because I can get it in the shade of charcoal (003). Most drugstore brands do not have this shade of eyeliner. Even though my eyes are blue, I think this shade looks best with my eyes and skin tone.
I also love this eyeliner because it goes on smoothly and lasts all day!
Plus, I never have problems with it irritating my eyes like some eyeliners do.
You can purchase this eyeliner at Walmart for less than $5.
2. Wet n Wild Megalast Retractable Eyeliner
I love this eyeliner because it goes on smoothly, and I don’t have problems with it smudging or smearing.
This eyeliner also doesn’t really need to be sharpened, so that makes it even more convenient to use.
I have tried a lot of other drugstore eyeliners, but this one is still my favorite.
You can purchase this eyeliner at Target for $2.
3. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
I have been using Maybelline Great Lash Mascara for years.
My favorite is the washable mascara in the shade blackest black.
I have tried Lots of Lashes and BIG, but I don’t like those brushes as much.
I find that this mascara doesn’t clump, but it still coats my lashes nicely.
It never irritates my eyes, which is a definite bonus!
You can purchase this mascara at Target for less than $5.
4. Revlon Photoready Primer, Shadow + Sparkle
I use the shade 505 Impressionist for my blue eyes.
I like that it comes with different shades that all compliment my eye color.
Plus, I like that the shadows come in the shape of your eye so you know where to use them.
The eye shadow lasts all day, so you don’t have to worry about reapplying!
You can purchase this eye shadow at Walmart for less than $9.
5. Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer
If you have oily skin like me, this primer is a great base for your foundation or just to wear on its own.
It helps control shine all day!
I have tried other primers, but they didn’t work as well as this one.
You can purchase this primer at Target for $6.
6. Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
I use this foundation in the shade classic ivory (light 2).
This foundation glides on smoothly. It doesn’t feel like it soaks into your skin, but it doesn’t look cakey either.
I love that it keeps my skin soft and not too dry or oily.
This foundation covers some flaws, but still looks natural.
You can purchase this foundation at Target for less than $8.
7. Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder
I use the shade 880 Translucent, and I love it!
It works well for my oily skin. Plus, because it’s translucent, it works well whether I have a tan or not.
One thing that is nice about this powder is that it comes with a nice puff. The container also has a built in mirror, so it makes this easy to take with you.
You can purchase this powder at Target for less than $7.
8. Covergirl Professional Loose Powder
I love this loose powder by Covergirl because it lasts such a long time.
It keeps my face from being shiny without looking like it’s caked on.
It also does not dry out my skin.
You can purchase this powder at Target for less than $6.
9. Essence Mosaic Blush
I like this blush because you can get different colors out of one product.
You can get light shades if you don’t feel like a lot of blush, or you can go darker.
You can purchase it here.
10. Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush
I use the shade 831E Pearlescent Pink.
What I love about this blush is that it lasts all day.
You also only need to use a small amount because it is very pigmented.
You can purchase this blush at Target for less than $3.
