You can look at these and what they're for and choose which you think you'll use most. I didn't include brushed I use for foundation, contour, and highlight. If you want me to, just ask.
As for makeup items, I'd say any eyeshadow palette with many choices. Nude eyeshadow pallets are good to have. But, I also have a lot of fun with many colors. I'll post a picture of the two I have. One was a gift so, I don't know about cost.
Lipstick and blush, just get what you think is pretty :3
I can post a picture of my most used brushes two but, I don't find it too necessary.
