    To anyone new to wearing makeup to school, what would be your best drugstore recommendations?

    Mine are:

    Rimmel London Match Perfection Liquid Foundation
    Pros: Good Coverage (Medium Coverage), blends nicely, good for pale people in particular (it's one of the few that will actually match my skin tone!), lasts most of the day
    Cons: Can clog pores quite badly (Since I've started using it, I have to remember to cleanse my face properly at night or I get reeeally bad breakouts the next day!), doesn't last all day (you need a powder to set it or it will not stay!)

    Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder
    Pros: Matches my skin tone really nicely, stays on pretty well, lasts a really long time, can be worn on its own.
    Cons: It goes literally everywhere when you try to apply it!

    Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara
    Pros: Bold, dramatic black lashes, doesn't clump at all, easy to apply, stays on for ages with no smudging!
    Cons: A little difficult to get off at night

    What are your suggestions? For instance, I'm still looking for a kohl eyeliner pencil which is actually waterproof (darn you Rimmel Scandaleyes...)
