Eyeliner can be tricky! I know that some people prefer a felt tip liner and feel like that’s easier, but I personally find that something with a little brush tip is easier personally. I am obsessed with TheBalm schwing liner:
It’s super black and matte, and stays put all day without flaking or doing anything weird.
I don’t know if you’ve had a lot of eyeliner experience, but if you find a felt tip easier my coworker @taylahdistefano finds the Napoleon Neo Noir amazing:
Again, super black and matte, and the felt tip is something a lot of people like.
In terms of mascara, I don’t think I will ever change mascaras from this one by Benefit:
I used to think that there was no point in investing in mascaras, but this one definitely changed my mind. It makes my lashes super long, curly and separated, and you can layer it up without it getting clumpy at all.
In terms of eyeshadow palettes, in my mind you can’t go past the Meet Matte palettes by TheBalm for something super easy to use:
I went for the Meet Matt(e) Trimony because I like warm tones, but they do have the Meet Matt(e) Nude for cooler tones. Super pigmented, easy to blend, and you can’t mess up a good neutral matte eye look.
