One of my favourite things to do each season is to switch up the products in my makeup bag. Out go last season's items and in go the awesome new products I'm just dying to play with! But sometimes doing that can get expensive so I've come up with the perfect way to switch up your summer makeup bag for under $40!
Nothing says summer like beautiful bronzed skin and this bronzer comes with a gorgeous shimmery peach pink blush for just less than the cost of a Starbucks latte! I own this duo and it's amazing, perfect for warming up your face and giving you a healthy flush.
Maybelline Baby Lips - $3.19
I've sung the praises of these tinted lip balms before but I just have to mention them again! They hydrate and protect your lips from the summer sun with SPF 15 while giving your lips the perfect amount of colour for lazy summer days.
CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof - $6.23
With summer come hot, sweaty days and if you're lucky, impromptu trip to the beach. While I'm not one to wear makeup to the beach or pool, waterproof mascara is perfect for those pool parties where no one actually swims but the guys always have to splash everyone!
I always switch to a lighter base for summer and I've heard nothing but good things about Maybelline's BB cream! While I'm sure it's a far cry from the original Korean versions, this is perfect for evening out your skin tone without feeling heavy for summer. As a bonus, this has SPF 30 and although you should be wearing a separate SPF regardless, it's always good to have a little more protection from the harsh summer sun!
These have been a staple in my makeup bag since high school and they come in especially handy during the summer when my skin is extra oily! As a bonus, if you use these to soak up any excess oil on your face before you apply powder, it goes on a lot less cakey.
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder - $5.43
While I've never tried this powder, I've heard the YouTube beauty community rave about it for years! I'm definitely picking it up for summer when I use up my current pressed powder.
For some reason, I never hear anything about these tinted eye primers from CoverGirl and it's a shame because they're absolutely amazing! You can wear 'Beige Blaze' on its own for a sheer, shimmery wash and you can also layer it under the eyeshadows you already have to prevent them from creasing.
If you pick up all of these products, you'll still have enough left for the perfect summer accessory; a delicious iced latte!
