I love, love love summer makeup! Everything looks better with a tan. From bronze tinted moisturizer to light cheek stains & glossy nude lips to the perfect SPF, check out some of my wallet-friendly favs from my summer makeup bag!
Amore Pacific has some amazing skincare products, and I simply cannot live without their SPF 30 cushion compact. It fits perfectly in your bag and is great for on the go touch-ups. Let’s face it, I live in Miami Beach & love being tan, but protecting my skin always comes first. Their resort collection offers some amazing sunscreen options in both the compact & lotion form- highly recommended!
Rosie Jane Cheek Gloss is another cult item that I’ve written about previously. With its new packaging but same fabulous formula, this jelly-like gloss is perfect to give your cheeks that flushed glow. The fact that is smells coconut-y and beachy is just icing on the cake! This product is $24 and will last a very long time because a little goes a long way! It’s a definite summer staple for me each year!
Next, I must share my favorite cheap & chic item that I recently discovered at the drugstore. This NYC Colors lip gloss in “Brighton Beach Peach” is the perfect peachy summer shade with just a hint of a sparkle. It looks amazing with my summer skin and is not sticky whatsoever. At $1.99, I scooped up a few tubes just in case I couldn’t find it again. A few other summer lip favs include NARS lipstick in Honolulu Honey & Greek Holiday lip gloss- definitely worth checking into if your addicted to bronze/nude colors as I am.
Becca Beach tint comes in eight delicious colors and my personal favorite is fig. It’s a water-resistant blendable creme that is used for the eyes, cheeks, or lips. This oil-free, Vitamin E enriched creme won’t clog the pores and is safe for the most sensitive skin. It also has a lovely rose scent!
Elf Cosmetics is always great for those wallet friendly trips to Target or the drugstore. Their lip & cheek tint from their new Aqua Summer collection is amazing! At only $4 a piece, you can pick up all three colors and play with them all summer long! They also have some new creme blushes which, with one swipe, give you a great color that lasts from the office to happy hour cocktails! Happy shopping & have a beautiful weekend friends! ~xo, J~
