Oh man, I made an account just to reply to this. I LOVE makeup, although I don't wear it every day because I love sleeping in just a little bit more.
Eyeshadow is my favorite because there are so many different colors, brands, and palettes to experiment with. I feel like with foundation or concealer, you find one and that's the one you buy from now on usually. Right now my favorite palette is the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk one - the colors are a little too bright for my face, but it is still so pretty.
Apart from that, I really like UD, but I buy the pots instead of the palettes because I find the colors in the palettes to be hit or miss.
Oh, and I'm also "somewhere in New England" too! :)
