Hello beautiful friends!
Today I am sharing tons of affordable beauty products that I am loving this summer! My goal this summer was to not spend as much money (even though it is so hard) on beauty products that I love just as much as the pricey ones. What’s better than finding amazing beauty products and saving money at the same time?! My mindset is… the less I spend, the more I can buy! Ha!
First let’s talk all things FACE – I am still loving the L.A. Girl pro matte foundation and it’s only $8.50 on Amazon too! Linked here: L.A. Girl pro matte foundation. I switch up my foundations from the L.A. Girl pro matte to the Makeup Revolution conceal and define full coverage foundation. It is $12 at Ulta and is so light weight! I also love the concealer that goes with the foundation and have been using it for months. It’s only $8 too and hands down the best concealer I have found lately! I did buy the new elf camo concealer and I totally bought a shade too light for me but I do like the concealer itself, you also can’t beat $5! I use 3 of Makeup Revolution’s baking powers in the shades banana, ghost, and translucent. I like to switch those up to just however I’m feeling that day – they are $8 at Ulta! As far as highlighters and bronzer, I find myself reaching for Makeup Revolution baked bronzer daily, the shade is beautiful and it is only $8, along with the baked highlighter! I also love the new Vintage Lace highlighter pallet by Makeup Revolution, it is $10 at Ulta and has 4 different shades! I do use a primer every day just to keep my pop up pores small, the two I found this summer are wet n’ wild water drop primer and catrice cosmetics prime and fine, both are less than $8 at Ulta! I do love a good setting spray as well, Milani’s “make it dewy” setting spray and Makeup Revolution’s fixing spray in the scent guava rose both have me hooked!
On to EYES – this summer I am really into more nudes and natural eye looks for daytime, but I do love a pop of glitter or color at night. I found a few pallets that have amazing pigment and have tons of nude options! One is the Makeup Revolution nudes chocolate, $7 at Ulta too! It’s small and perfect for travel. My favorite eye pallet so far is bh cosmetics “hangin in hawaii.” It is seriously soooo pretty and has tons of nudes, $16 at Ulta! I still love essence false lash mascara and lash princess mascara, they are $4.99 at Ulta and some of the best formula you will find in a good mascara! I like a super thin eyeliner line and the liner that has worked best for me is the essence felt tip eyeliner pen, and it’s only $2.99! I swear by that mascara and eyeliner over anything!
Lastly, LIPS, honey – I do struggle finding lip products that work well with my lips because of the eczema that decides to pop up when she wants. Products that are creamy and have moisture in them work best for me! I found a few lip liners that are amazing for the product and price, the first is essence soft contouring liner and l.a. girl “perfect precision” lip liner. I love a nude lip liner because it makes my lips look plump and juicy! Maybe one day I’ll stop being chicken and get lip fillers but as of now I am terrified lol. The two lipsticks I found are from Almay’s summer line in the shades “be strong” and “go wild.” I use the darker pink first and then put the nude on top, to transition into night, throw a glitter gloss on top and you are good to go! These lippies are only $7.99 too!
I have a video on my Youtube of most of these products as well, linked here: Affordable Summer Beauty
I hope you guys are having the best summer so far and saving tons of money for all the memories & travels to be made later! Happy shopping…
