Drugstore Makeup Starter Kit

When starting out with makeup, there can be a lot of confusion. I know from personal experience that when I started doing makeup I had no clue what to buy and didn't know how much was too much for a beginner to spend. I know that I didn't want to pay a whole lot for things knowing I didn't know how to use half of it. I bought higher end eyeshadows and the rest of my kit was primarily from the drugstore. Once I got better, I started splurging on more higher end items from higher end brands. With this being said I decided to make a list of different products a beginner could get, how much these products typically cost and just some different options to choose from when first starting out. The list will be broken up into categories so if there's something specific you're looking for you can go to that certain section.
