New to makeup? It’s okay, girlfriend, not all of us were born with lipsticks in our cribs. While being a makeup newbie can be loads of fun, a lot of ladies spend a ton of money on glitzy and pretty products that they just don’t know how to use. I’ve compiled a list of five of the best makeup brands for newbies and veterans alike.
From their polishes to their 5 Color Palette Eyeshadows ($8.75) to their Mega Shine Lip Gloss ($5.50), NYX is a cruelty-free brand whose products are richly pigmented and give outstanding performances. My favorite item from them? Their Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk ($4.50) makes for the perfect eyeshadow base.
