1.A waterproof eyeliner stamp so you can create the perfect cat eye without having to redo your entire eye look about five times before finally getting those wings even.
5.A Maybelline dark circle concealer with a built-in felt applicator so you can make those tired eyes look bright again when it's time to pull yourself out of bed.
6.A Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r hydrating foundation, because as the winds get colder our skin tends to get dryer. This new grape seed oil and sodium hyaluronate formula will give you a moisturizing, natural-looking, and smooth finish.
7.A cruelty-free Milani baked bronzer to give you a warm glow, even when it's dark and cold outside. You don't have to be a pro at contouring for this stuff to make a huge difference — and all it takes is a few brush stokes.
8.A Kylie Cosmetics "Dolce K" lip kit (which is my go-to nude lipstick) for a gorgeous brown-nude that works with any look. And it comes with the exact matching liner to help shape and define your lips exactly how you want them.
9.A NYX setting spray to lock your smokey eye in place, while keeping your skin hydrated at the same time.
10.A dual-sided TréStique matte lip crayon and balm, because you can use the balm side for some tinted moisturizing or layer it on top of the lip crayon for a more glossy effect.
11.A makeup remover cloth to set your face free at the end of the day. If one of your least favorite things about wearing makeup is trying to scrub it off, then this is what you need. One side of the cloth uses microfibers to remove *all* of your makeup with only water and the other side can be used to exfoliate.
12.Glossier's Boy Brow for a quick and easy way to have your brows poppin'. It'll fill them in, without making them stiff or flakey. If you don't trust yourself with a brow pencil or pomade (@ me) then this is definitely the move!
13.A pack of colorful makeup sponges you can use to flawlessly apply foundation, BB cream, powder, concealer, and more. Pro tip: dampen them with water for the best results.
14.A high pigmented Make Up For Ever matte lipstick that'll encourage you to try something bold. You can pick from rich shades of red, pink, nude, and purple. You may even be surprised at how confident you feel in a color you've never tried before!
15.A Milk Cosmetics holographic highlighter stick that'll easily swipe on to your cheeks, eyes, or lips for a very magical look. Even if you don't wear makeup often, how could you not love this mermaid/alien/unicorn perfection?
16.A beautiful 14-piece makeup brush set perfect for a beginner because it has pretty much everything you need for a full face (plus, they'll look super cute on display in your room).
17.The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Jackie Aina eyeshadow palette so you can try all different kinds of looks with one handy (and highly pigmented) palette. It comes with 14 shades ranging from neutrals to vibrant metallics so you can experiment with everyday looks as well as more sassy and glam ones.
18.A tube of Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream to help even out your skin tone, brighten, smooth, and hydrate with a more lightweight formula than most foundations. It even has SPF 30 to protect you from harmful rays.
19.A ColourPop x Disney lipgloss that'll give you a subtle shimmer. Perfect for adding a little extra glitz to your everyday look. And when you're ready to dive into lipstick territory, you can layer this over any color to add some extra shine.
22.A paraben- and cruelty-free waterproof eyeshadow primer that'll set you up for success when you're trying your best to follow a makeup tutorial on YouTube. This product will help your eye makeup apply better and last longer.
24.A pack of hands-free eyeshadow shields that'll catch fallout while you apply your eye makeup, giving you a nice, clean under eye that you don't have to try to clean up afterwards.
25.A set of four sparkly glitter eyeshadow creams in warm sunny tones to bring that inner shine to the outside. ✨ These easy-apply creams can be blended with your finger and applied on your eyes, cheeks, or anywhere on your body really.
26.And a portable lighted makeup mirror with various zoomed mirrors and some storage slots in the base. It'll give you that good good lighting for applying all your new beauty products!
