We all love cheap gems. Here is my list of some of my must-have makeup & skincare!

  • e.l.f. Oil Free Flawless Finish Foundation



At only $6, this foundation is perfect for us girls who don't want to break the bank finding a shade that matches our tan!

We're only get darker, so if we need to buy another we're still saving money!

Providing 11 colors, e.l.f. has got you covered this summer.

(Also amazing during transition seasons


  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture SPF 15


This is only $8 (at places like Macy's Backstage, TJ Maxx, Marshall's, etc.) and is a perfect go-to when you don't want to put cakey sunscreen all over your face.

It not only protects your skin, but moisturizes it: two major keys under this summer sun.

And it's travel-size!


  • e.l.f. Long-Wear Baked Highlighter




ONLY $4 PEOPLE!

There's nothing that makes me feel more fierce than a good highlight (besides my eyebrows being on point).

This cheap highlighter is a STEAL. It illuminates so well under the sun and is perfect on days where you know you might be extra oily/sweaty and don't want to waste an expensive one.

It sits on your face so well and truly lives up to it's name of "long-wear."

You won't be breaking the bank, and this pan is jam-packed in product so it will last you a VERY long time. Probably a couple years, no exaggeration.


  • Nivea Essentially Enriched Body Lotion


Do not sleep on this lotion.

In the summer, dry skin is still something we all need to be aware of. Especially us who are pool-goers and come in contact with chlorine!

To keep that summer glow, you need a good, well-absorbing moisturizer and THIS baby right here is my go-to.

Only $3-6 (at Walgreens, Walmart, etc.)
