Affordable summer-proof beauty

It’s almost here .  SUMMER! For a lot of us, summer brings the opportunity to be around water and water activities. It also brings a lot of extra heat. Many products have waxes in them that melt and run in the heat. Others don’t play well with water and still others just look cakey or powdery in the bright sunshine. Anyways, none of us wants to see our flawless makeup transform into a runny, clumpy mess after a few minutes outside.

Do you switch up your makeup in the summer? A lot of women find themselves gravitating towards edgier shades at this time of year and that makes sense given the fun vibe of summer, but not everyone thinks about using different formulas. Even if you like to maintain your overall look all year long, you may want to consider switching formulas of many of your usual products. Don’t worry; it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune to pick up some new products for the summer months. There are many effective ones to be had for a great price.

Avoid the mess and check out these great summer friendly products:

e.l.f. Studio Eye Primer & Line Sealer:

This hard working product performs two important functions. One side primes your lids to prevent creasing, fading and bleeding of your favorite eye products. The other side can be swiped over powder shadows to create a budge-proof eyeliner.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation:

If you want foundation that will stay put in the heat, give this one a try. It’s made to stay put and remain fresh looking through whatever you do for 25 hours. It’s also smooth and hydrating.

Mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain:

This product goes on as a gloss but, as the gloss wears off, it leaves behind a gorgeous flush to enhance your lips.

NYX Waterproof Concealer Stick:

If you’re like me and you rarely have flawless skin then you probably want to have a concealer on hand that won’t wash away when walk past the pool. This creamy waterproof concealer comes in 11 shades, including three corrective ones.

Maybelline Volum’ Express the Mega Plush Waterproof:

This new waterproof mascara promises soft, lush lashes that won’t flake. It has a gel-mousse formula which is supposed to be more flexible than the usual waxes.

So there you go. You don’t have to sacrifice beauty or your bank account just because summer is here. You can look amazing and have money left over for margaritas by the pool.
