Affordable Summer Makeup

Good morning everyone! One makeup brand that I’ve loved ever since high school is NYX Professional Makeup. Not only is their makeup incredibly affordable, but it’s incredibly high quality. Back when I had an allowance from my parents (a loooooong time ago) I remember spending it on NYX makeup from Walmart hahah! I listed all of the makeup products I’m wearing above (and I’m wearing all of the products in these photos) however I wanted to share my absolutely FAVORITE three with you here – all available from Walmart!

NYX makeup setting spray, matte: A lot of beauty bloggers rave about this makeup setting spray, and now I know why! During the spring and summer I get an oily/shiny T-zone and I absolutely hate it – this setting spray controls the shine but still allows my highlighter to show through. I tested it all throughout my trip to Bermuda and it worked great – however the REAL test was this past weekend at my bachelorette party! It was 90 degrees and HUMID in Charleston and my makeup never budged!!!

NYX volumizing and lengthening mascara: I normally use a pretty expensive mascara, and I’ve found that this one is an amazing dupe for it, but for less than $8!! It does exactly what it says it does: lengthens and adds volume to your lashes. (I’m wearing it in these photos but I did use a mascara primer like I normally do.)

NYX lip lingerie liquid lipstick in “cheekies”: If you learn one thing from this post, let it be that you HAVE to try NYX’s lip products!! I have been using their gloss forever, and I like their liquid listed equally as much. The Lingerie collection is amazing in itself: the pigmentation is fantastic the lipstick is long wear and lasts much longer than the soft matte lip creams. On top of it all, it doesn’t dry your lips out at all! I fell in love with the color “cheekies” for its soft, pale pink hue.

All of these products can be found at your local Walmart or online here! 🙂
