Affordable Make-Up for Summer

I can say this is probably the first summer I've changed my make-up with my skin most of the time I just use my light pale make-up on my tan skin (I know funny looking right). But getting ready to go on vacation I new I didn't want to spend a lot so I gave myself a limit and used that to get EVERYTHING (I will be adding some extra things, just as something you could also try but there not included in the price)
So I took $40 and said I'd buy my summer make-up all brand new and not break the bank.

These items I bought all at one time:

I new I already had my BB cream and my Covergirl outlast I had bought at a different time.   

This is a extra foundation I really enjoy, I use it all
the time. (picture is also not mine)
I love this foundation for the summer its brand
new and light coverage. I paid $7.98

When I think of summer make-up I want something that will last longer, and not be heavy on my skin.

So here are the things I bought in more detail:

Hard Candy Concealer at Wal-Mart: I bought medium.

I paid $6.00

This Concealer is thick I swear you need only a small amount, I use it under my eyes.

Elf HD Blush: I bought mine at Wal-Mart: (if you don't know about Elf its crazy inexpensive make-up) I bought the color headliner

I paid $3.00 (beware the bottle is really small)

I have only used this once but the color was very bright and looked great for summer

Wet n Wild Mascara in black (waterproof) bought at Wal-Mart:

I paid $2.97 (that price is crazy it had good reviews online so I figured if I feel in love with this it'd save me money.)

So once I tried this one it did not volume my eye lashes at all. It would be great for someone who's not big on mascara but wants to use it, and a girl just starting out on make-up.

N.Y.C Cover Stick bought at Wal-Mart: Medium its creamy and covers pretty well for the price.
-The link is the color green which is great for people with red skin, but at the store you can pick your actual skin tone.

 I paid $1.72

For those who have small pimples, and or red spots this works well. If you have pimples that are thick or white heads it does not cover very well.

Rimmel London Eyeliner in the color Nude bought at Walmart (but link is to Ulta because I couldn't find it online)

I paid $3.97

Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder Color Translucent bought at Wal-Mart

I paid $3.97
I love the powered and the eye liner has stayed on all day so far

Okay, this is my favorite item I bought and it was only $.93 I bought it at Wal-Mart I couldn't find a link online but they're a lot of different colors in the store.

I paid $.93

Being cheap I was very hesitant about buying this but I thought only $.93 can't go wrong. But let me tell you it was pretty amazing, and nothing works on my lips.

 Elf Studio Bronzer (I already had this): bought at Target

I paid $3.00 

This works great for winter and summer because of the different colors. I find it to be a little to light for my skin.
Elf studio contouring blush and bronzing powder: bought at Target 

I paid $3.00 

Out of Elf bronzers this is my favorite, the color is great and you even get a blush.

So all together (using the BB Cream and adding both bronzers from above) cost came to $36. 54 
I believe for the cover girl added it would be right at $40.
*remember prices vary from store, state, and or if coupon used.

These are some eyeshadows I thought were really nice and inexpensive, I didn't need any eye shadow so I just used what I had already. ( these are not included in the price)

Physicians Formula Nude Eye Shadow Pallet I bought at Ulta

I paid $11.99

NYX Love in Rio Eye Shadow Color Segredos De Giselle bought at Ulta 

I paid $4.99

Wet n Wild Color in Sweet as Candy bought at Wal-Mart

I paid $2.93
-these do need eye primers to make them stay longer

I have oily skin so all these products worked very well for my skin type. So please beware if your skin type is different some products could break you out or just not work for you.
