I rarely wear foundation, but when I do I wear Hard Candy CC stick($8), its light coverage, and great for dry skin.
La girl concealer ($2) has full coverage but does not feel heavy. It also last all day (16 hours) on me without creasing. It comes in 18 colors.
Essence makes two really good powders, both being $4. The
All about matt! fixing compact powder is great for oily skin as it really mattifyies the skin. If you combo skin, the better choose would be Mattifying compact powder, as it does not mattify as much as All about matt.
Blush and Bronzer:
Essence Bronzer ($5) in suntanned is matte bronzer, without an orange undertone but is does have a red undertone making look natural of a tan color for light to medium skin tone.
Essence Blush ($3) in adorable is light pink, that last all day. Is great for light skin tone, but Essence has blushes for all skin tones.
Essence I <3 stage ($3.50) is a great primer and base for eyeshadow. It conceals any reds of the eyelid, and make the colors brighter and last longer.
Any of the Wet n wild 8 pans ($5) are a great place to start. They are really pigmented and come in three color combos
Essence 3d duo in irresistible caramel cream ($3.50) is a great duo as it has great highlight color and light brown. I uses the highlight color as highlighter for my face as well an eyeshadow.
Annebelle Smoothliner ($9) and Essence gel liner ($4) are both my favorite eyeliners. They last a really long time and are pigment. The Annabelle Smoothliner come in a few different colors, to fit you fancy.
Essence Get BIG Lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara ($4) my favorite mascara. Essence does have a few different mascaras with a few mascara being waterproof.
Hard candy lipgloss stick ($6) is not drying even though it is stain, and it does last a few hours on the lips with eating and drinking. Comes in 11 colors.
Essence Stay with me long lasting lipgloss ($3) comes in 3 colors and last a few hours, and a few of the colors do stain the lips.
Ecotools Touch up set ($10) has a good set of brushes that help makeup to be applied. The duo fiber (still synthetic hair) called the finishing brush is great to apply blush and bronzer that pigmented. The eye shading brush is good to apply and blend eyeshadow. The detailer/lip brush is a brush that has two uses being a lip brush or concealer brush, I would pick one use before using it as the lip product does stain the brush hairs. And lastly you get a lash & brow groomer which everyone needs at least one of them.
Real Techniques eye set ($18) has also all the eye brushes you need. The brushes can also be used on the face, for blending, or applying color in smaller areas. The shapes of the brushes do that a few days to find the best way to use them for you.
Elf Powder Brush, Elf Complexion Brush, ELF Studio Small Angled Brush ($3 each) are all soft and good quality brushes. The powder brush can be used to apply powder, and blend powder and foundation in to the skin.
Total = $97, Still could buy a lipbalm or another brush. It would depend on what I needed at the time.
