Check which Kernel Headers you need
uname -r

lts
sudo eopkg install linux-lts-headers

or
current
sudo eopkg install linux-current-headers

Install core packages
sudo eopkg upgrade
sudo eopkg install gcc make autoconf binutils xorg-server-devel

Install the Guest Additions from the VirtualBox menu
Devices -> Insert Guest Additions CD image

Drag the .run file into the terminal, so it looks something like this: (saves typing) Don't forget to add the sudo sh
sudo sh ' /run/media/admin/VirtualBox-5.1.28-117968-Linux_amd64.run'

Once the terminal has finished, reboot!
