Hello everyone! Today I am going to talk about the best products for EYES for 2013! It is very hard to pick just one thing for every category, because there are so many great products out there. Ok, so here goes!

BEST EYEBROW PRODUCT:
Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown/Brunette ($23, Sephora)
I will admit, I am pretty sure this is the only brow color I have used all year. I have had this for almost 2 years and I have used it probably every single day, and there is only a small dent in it. You need the tiniest amount for your brows, and it looks so natural! I usually just mix the two colors together.
BEST EYESHADOW PRIMER/BASE:
MAC Paint Pot in the color Painterly ($20, MAC)
I really think using eyeshadow bases makes a difference in the way your eyeshadow wears. These paint pots by MAC are super creamy, they don’t dry out, and they create a nice base for your eye color to stick to. This color is a skin toned color, so it just evens out your eyelids and hides any veins or redness.

BEST EYESHADOW PALETTE:
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette ($52, Sephora)
This is my favorite, and most reached for eyeshadow palette because the colors are so pretty and neutral. There is a mix of shimmery and matte shadows, and they are more cool toned than the shades in the original Naked palette, so I like them more. Urban Decay’s shadows are some of the best, and all of these colors in this palette are perfect. You can create a daytime or nighttime look with this palette.
BEST CREAM SHADOWS:
Maybelline Color Tattoos ($6, drugstores)
I HAD to give these a shout out. These cream shadows are amazing! They last soo long, and you can use them as an eyeshadow base, or just use them on their own. I love cream shadows because they are so quick and easy. When I am in a rush I just blend a little on my eyelid, and it gives such a nice effect, and they don’t crease at all.

BEST EYELINER:
NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Via Veneto ($24, Sephora)
This is a retractable pencil eyeliner that is the blackest black. I use this on my waterline and smudge it into my lash line almost everyday, and it never smudges and always stays put.
BEST LIQUID LINER:
Jordana Fabuliner ($2, Walgreens)
I know most people have never even heard of this brand, but you need this liner in your life. It costs $2 at Walgreens, and they usually have it right by the checkout in the makeup section. It is very black, has a very pointy felt tip, and is so easy to work with. I have these in black and brown.
BEST MASCARA:
Maybelline Volum’ Express The Rocket Mascara ($6, drugstores)
This should not come as a surprise if you read my blog. I hope they never stop making this mascara. It has a huge wand, comes off super black, and volumizes and lengthens. It’s everything you would want in a mascara!
