The Best Affordable Summer Beauty Finds

Find inexpensive beauty products to wear this summer.

Summer style gets real simple with these fun beauty buys.

Summer is a time for flowy fabrics, bright colours, and wavy locks. But the warmer weather also provides an excuse to take some beauty risks and explore brighter hues that have a little more shine. Here, some of our favourite beauty picks for the summer. We’ve got you covered with everything from bright lips to shimmery eye shadows.

  1. Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Mattes in Craving Coral

There’s no need to break the bank to try out popsicle lips—this season’s hottest trend. This shade, a mix between red and coral, pops against summer-favourite fabrics like white and yellow.

  1. Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Dayglow

Use this pressed powder to highlight or strobe sun-kissed cheeks—the soft bronze adds a less intense contour effect.

  1. Joico Blonde Life Brightening Masque

If you’re looking to brighten your hair this summer, this product is for you. Apply the formula to strands once or twice a week and—voila—no fancy salon treatments required.

  1. Lemonhead Spacepaste Eye Shadow in Silverlake

If there was ever a time to experiment with wilder makeup looks, like glittered eyes, summer would be it. But glitter can be a real hassle to apply. Try this glitter paste instead. The formula goes on clean (no strays!) to add some worry-free shine.

  1. Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in Frosted

Eye gloss does the job of an eye shadow, but imparts a wet-looking shine. This rose gold shade, a must-have for warmer months, is flattering on all skin shades, too.

  1. Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Liquid Lip Metal in Mauve Squad

This lip colour provides full coverage and lots of shine. A great shade if you’re looking to step outside of your makeup comfort zone and try something new.
