We’re all under the assumption that in order to establish a high end eye look we need to rush over to a department store and splurge but in reality we don’t need to spend a fortune just to construct a high end look. All we need is about 15 minutes in our drugstore and we’re good to go.

Whether I’m in a rush or have 20 minutes the topic of brows is something that can never go untouched. The Nyx Micro Brow Pencil has a secure place in my top brow enhancers. A duo ended pencil with a spooly on one end and a fine tip on the other allowing you create natural brows. I don’t think I could ever let go of this brow product. Oh, did I mention I’m currently in possession of the shade Expresso. A neutral cream shadow lover at all times must have the Maybelline Color Tattoo Leather in Creamy Beige in their repertoire. My foolproof eyeshadow base – whether I’m swiping this on an everyday basis or layering it with other shadows this mid tone warm brown will always hold a spot in my makeup collection.The secret is out… I’m not the biggest eyeliner supporter. It’s not that I don’t drool over the appearance, it’s just the process that frightens me but have no fear I think I’ve conquered that stumbling block. The Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash Boosting Eyeliner in Deep Brown had me at first stroke. The way the eyeliner gently glides against the lid while depositing an even amount of pigmentation. This liner has me convinced that maybe I can enter into the uncharted territories of the liners. To top everything off I’m reaching for a new love of mine, the Maybelline Full N’ Soft Waterproof Mascara. This mascara has knocked every exception I had for it out of the water and beyond.
