We've all been there and we all know that the first week of returning to school is a fashion show. Literally.

If you want to work those hallways and have people breaking their necks to check you out, you first have to make sure that you have the best items to do so. Summer is officially coming to an end and money is tight -- you can thank those Coachella tickets, but that doesn't mean that you still can't look stylish on a budget.
If you're ready to head back to the hallways, but not too sure what lipstick to wear on the first day -- relax. I have you covered, per usual with amazing back to school makeup products for under $10. Yes, you read it correctly -- $10!

Rimmel Brow This Way - Eyebrow Gel

Keep your eyebrows in place and maintained with a quick swipe of eyebrow gel each morning. It will last you throughout the day and you won't have to worry about stray hairs all over the place. Keep it fleeky baby.

NYX Concealer Jar

Whether you're covering up dark circles and blemishes or brightening your under eye, concealer is always necessary.

Maybelline New York Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer

Primer is the main ingredient to a flawless, oil free face and this pore eraser primer will shrink your pores with the drop of a dime -- really.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Matte lips are in and that's pretty much all the convincing you need.

L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Volume Building Mascara

This mascara will them wondering if your lashes are yours or not.

Rimmel Matte BB Cream

Skip the foundation and allow your face to breathe a bit instead by switching to bb cream.

Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner

It's all in the flick of the wrist girl.

Can you believe that all of these items are under $10? Well, you should.

These are a great bunch of essentials :) I think I might head on over to the drugstore and invest in some matte lip cream and liquid liner today!! @jordanhamilton i have a question. i'm kind of clueless about makeup, so maybe you can help. is drugstore makeup "good enough"? do you think it's worth shopping at sephora/investing more money in these products? or is it fine to just get more bang for your $ at CVS. thanks :)
yes!!!! brows are so important. your face is not complete without amazing, intact brows. why thank you @marshalledgar :)
@jordanhamilton You nailed it with Rimmel's Brow This Way. whatever makeup look you choose, Don't skimp on your brows. get them on point.
Has anyone tried the Baby Face Pore Minimizer?
I havent @jlee37 but it def sounds like a product that is worth looking into!
