Steps

  1. 1
    Here are the items I chose to go with.
    I chose Avon brand, because it is cheap, good quality and it lasts a long time. This is approximately $40 worth of makeup and many of these items like eyeshadows, lipsticks, and eye pencils will last you six months to a year, depending on how intensively you use them. I decided to get two pallets of eyeshadows because we do not want to wear the same one all the time. We want to be different.

    This one is a black-and-white palette.
    It will allow you to make smoky eyes or just dark shadows in the corners of your eyes.

    Our next item is one of my favorite things.
    It says it is liquid eyeliner but it is more like a marker because of its end. You can do thin lines or you can do thick lines. I prefer for the marker eyeliner because I wear contacts and I am allergic to any kind of liquid eyeliner, even ones that are hypoallergenic. This type of eyeliner allows me to wear it a long time without making my eyes red. Also, it lasts a long time. It doesn't leave prints on your eyelids so it is a very precious item for me.

    Let's move to the next item.
    This is one of my most favorite mascaras in the world. I've used all kinds Flormar, Mac, Bourjois but this is the best one so far and only costs about five dollars, depending on the discount. It has a very wide plastic brush and has very thin what I would call teeth. The trick with this mascara is that you have to apply several layers. It applies very thinly so it may take you several strokes to finish the process of painting your eyelashes, but it brushes them and it makes them wide. Applying layer-by-layer makes them look longer and more voluminous.

    The last I item that I have is an eyeshadow pencil.
    I got a purple color. It will add some glitter because these two pallets are matte, this will add some sparkle for you, if you decide to go to a party after work or something like that. This works perfect. That is all of the makeup for the eyes; let us switch to the lipsticks for the lips.

    I chose three different lipsticks, again to have a variety; this one is a wine colored lipstick, which I love.
    It has a very soft texture, SPF filters, lip balm, and it sits very lightly on your lips.

    Let's open these and see what's inside of these two boxes.
    Okay, this is another lipstick. This is more of a nude color to use for a natural look, which is good for daytime and daylight hours.

    The last one is a dark burgundy color, which is very popular these days.
    You can see this color on like runway fashion shows. These items are what we need to look great. They will allow us to look good for less money and they will last a long time, even if you use them on a daily basis.

    Here is the lip pencil.
    We will use it for making contours or we will use it as a base for one of the lipsticks. The makeup that I have here is perfect for everyday usage. You may want to use something more expensive for proms, weddings, or for commercial makeup, but this Avon stuff right here is just as great and it will give you the exact same look as if you went with the more expensive stuff.
