It doesn't matter if you're a pomade type or pencil type of girl, Anastasia Beverly Hills has perfected both formulas. It’s great for anyone who likes a polished, perfectly groomed eyebrow. The pencil allows you to create that precise look of actual brow hairs and a strong shape that still looks natural. The pomade, if used with a really effective brush, can give you the most flawless arch every girl dreams of.

There are a lot of things Urban Decay has perfected and one of these (or 4 of these? hello, Naked Smoky) are their Naked Palettes. They currently have 4, the frist one being a warm-toned neutral palette, the second one is a cool-toned neutral palette, the third one is rose gold-toned neutral palette, and the fourth one is an all-out smoky eyeshadow palette. If you can only have one palette in your life then it should be either one of these. They are extremely creamy, pigmented, and long-lasting.

Maybelline is another drugstore brand that is found in every girl's makeup stash. It can be anything from the dream satin foundation, fit me concealer, or their hypersharp eyeliner; but we're betting on their mascaras! The Great Lash Mascara was the star of the show for a long time, but Maybelline has tons to choose from that delivers 99% satisfaction rate depending on what your lashes need. Overall, their formula doesn't clump, gives you luscious lashes, and doesn't budge throughout the day!

But they listened to the demands of their consumers and came up with a new formula that's rich and velvety for plump yet matte lips. The classic shades to have are: Ruby Woo, Viva Glam V, Stone, Up The Amp, Half and Half, Lady Danger, and Rebel.
