Eye Liner & Mascara Fit For A Queen

When it comes to playing up one of my features, I generally go for my eyes. In the days when I had acne and frizzy hair, and didn’t care much for my thin upper lip, my eyes always struck me as my prettiest asset. Now I have much higher self-esteem (not to mention clearer skin and an appreciation for my modest kisser), but my eyes still remain my favorite feature. I’ve been on the hunt for a eyeliner and mascara duo that I could always count on, whether they worked in concert with other makeup — like eye shadow or lip gloss — or gave me a little subtle glam on their own. Well, CoverGirl Queen’s Vivid Impact Eye Liner and Lash Fanatic Mascara are my new go-tos.

First of all, I am rarely this impressed by an eye liner, but CoverGirl Queen’s Vivid Impact liner glides on almost effortlessly. I love that it comes in a few basic liner shades (brown, black, etc.) but also a couple colors if you’re feeling bold; I got the liner in Jade to highlight my brown eyes. A thin line smudged along my top lid, topped with a few swipes of Lash Fanatic and, I swear, I don’t even need eye shadow. Love! [Eyeliner: $5.99, Drugstore.com; Mascara: $5.19, Drugstore.com]
