During the rest of the year I don’t wear too much make-up, but in the summer I hardly wear any. Even when I go out at night I keep it as simple and natural as possible. I really love the bronzed healthy glow my skin gets in hot weather, so why cover it up?!
That being said, one of my favorite things to do is pick up new cheap beauty products from the drugstore, and lately I’ve found up some great ones! You can buy all of this (except the Pink body spray and maybe the Pixi nail polish) for under $10 at any local drugstore.
Victoria’s Secret Pink Spring Break Body Mist in Jasmine Lime 8.4 oz for $12 // Such a long name, but this body spray smells amazing. I picked up the 2.4 oz on sale for $8, but I couldn’t find it online. I tossed it in my gym bag but frequently pull it out for a spray in the morning. It’s such a refreshing, bright scent.
Pixi Coral Cabana Nail Polish for $8 // This was a gift from a dear friend. We are nail polish freaks and always gift each other new colors for birthdays and holidays. This color is super neon coral, which is awesome, and also has kind of a semi-gloss/semi-matte finish. It’s hard to explain, but it looks super cool.
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Coffee Cake for $8 // I think this was my favorite purchase. I picked this up when I forgot my makeup on a trip out of town. The texture is weirdly bouncy and creamy, but goes on like powder. The Coffee Cake color is a perfect natural bronze on me. I’ve been wearing it everyday.
Maybelline Full N’ Soft Mascara in Black for $5.50 // If you’re looking for a good cheap mascara, this is it. I have been wearing this off and on since high school. It can be a bit clumpy, so make sure you blot or comb it out.
Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti for $6.50 // This lipstick is no joke, bright orange. I bought it out of curiosity and actually love it. Maybe it’s just my coloring—coral seems to look good on me, but I know it’s not for everyone. I usually apply it very lightly and it doesn’t get too dried out.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 12 for $8 // I bought this last year and used it all up, I need to buy some more. I always have a broad range of SPFs, starting around 30 at the beginning of the summer and working my way down to this one at 12. I love that this it smells like coconuts and goes on like lotion.
