What brand of makeup should I use for eyeshadow and pencil eyeliner? And what colors?

I just started using makeup and really want to get my moneys worth of makeup.

What would you suggest for eyeshadow and pencil eyeliner? I'm looking for a good quality eyeshadow + eyeliner that I can buy at a local drug store because I do not have much money.

I heard MAC is good, however I looked on the MAC website and it said for one pencil eyeliner, it is $15, so I'm going to have to find something cheaper.

And I need help with colors! Since I new to makeup, and not very good at it, I need help with what colors I should use for eyeshadow/eyeliner/lip gloss/blush etc.

If you can't see the picture of me (added to this question, and yes the picture is low quality), then I have medium brown hair (you can see some red when light is shinning right on it). I have blue eyes and light skin (not as light as the picture, the picture lighting is wrong).

Sorry for this question being so long!

Thank you in advance!

MAC is the best but no.7, maybelline and urban decay but urban decay is quite expensive... the others are reasonably priced and you should be able to find them easily in shops. I know it's tempting to go for the cheaper ones but usually they are chaeper cus they aren't as good and won't last you for a long time. It's better to get one which is good qualitly and will last you.


Mascara - for an everyday look go for either black or brown depending on your colouring. Other colours can be fun but i wouldn't go there cus you'll just look weird if you always go around in electric blue mascara,

Eyeliner - Any colour though for an every day look go for black or brown for a softer look, or if you have blue or green eyes then maybe those colours to highlight your eyes. Look online about what colours suit different people, do the seasonal analysis test - go to

Eyeshadow - Just find out the colours that suit you most first and take it from there and maybe use pastels for an every day look like pinks cus they are soft and arent too in your face.

Blush - Go out with your friends and try a few of the testers in shops and get them too tell you what looks best.

Lipgloss - It can be pretty much anything...its up to you but again ask your friends and see what looks good on you cus i can't really say cus i can't see what you look like.

Just experiment and you'll get there in the end! xoxo :)

Target is GREAT! they have eyliner there for like 93 cents and it works. I would just get some black and then some neutral eyeshadow (brown,tan,etc)
