That’s a pretty tall task for one product, but I’ve found four go-to’s that are up for the job. If you’re looking for a clump free mascara that you can swipe on and jam, I’ve got you covered.

One of the first non-drugstore brands I discovered was Urban Decay. I received a shadow in a Makeup Alley swap and it was game on. The edgy color palette and iconic packaging drew me in, but when they introduced the first Naked palette, my neutral-loving self was smitten for life.

Marsala Nail Polish

A browned wine shade, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala. It’s so 90s, like Brenda Walsh’s lipstick on 90210. And given that we have similar coloring, I wore the heck out of it myself. In fact, I recently discovered an old tube of Estee Lauder marsala-colored lipstick at the bottom of backpack purse, buried in a trunk with some things from college. Yes, I said backpack purse. It was green suede and I wore it everywhere!
