It’s summertime and the livin’ is easy—as your beauty routine should be. Which is why we’ve assembled this easy, on-the-go summer beauty routine—but all from drugstores, and under $30. But just because it’s cost-conscious doesn’t mean it’s cheap: All these products are worth your hard earned cash.
Neutrogena Sheer Zinc Face Dry-Touch SPF 50, $6.39
Zinc for the win, always. As we’ve discussed before, mineral sunscreens are really fabulous. This Neutrogena one is great because it’s not going anywhere (zinc, you magical beast) and is the best at protecting skin—but because it’s zinc, that also means it has a bit of a white cast to it. So put it on before makeup as kind of like a sunscreen/primer duo, and then put your makeup on. It’ll be great and blend in once you add your concealer and bronzer.
NYX Hi Definition Photo Concealer Wand, $3.49
Okay, seriously, this concealer is so, so great. 1,300 positive Amazon reviews can’t be wrong, right? Concealer is kind of all you need for a summer day around town, and this baby blends flawlessly, as well as comes in 20 shades.
L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara, $7.12
Major volume, major lengthening, and majorly waterproof. Yes, yes, and yes, thank you. And it never seems to clump, flake, or smudge. Whatever’s in this formula is magic, and it only costs $7.
