My Top 5 Drugstore Summer Essentials 🌞

Hello my lovelies,

It’s summer here in the UK…well I mean it’s supposed to be. We’ve had a couple of scorchers that everyone yearned for then, in typical British fashion, went straight to moaning about it (you can’t please us when it comes to the weather trust me 🙄)

Personally I don’t really mind. I like the sun but I prefer those warm breezy days where my makeup won’t melt off my face or leak my body weight in sweat. No I much prefer to enjoy the sun somewhere abroad where I can sit by a pool in my fake designer shades with a cocktail in hand rather than stay here fighting off gigantic wasps whilst I roast in a plastic chair in the garden trying enjoy the most of my £1.50 – formally 99p- ice cream (thanks inflation!).

Anyway with it being the summer season I thought this was the perfect time to share with you some of my favourite drugstore summer essentials. Whether you’re going on holiday or are looking for that perfect summer selfie hopefully you’ll find something here you want to try that’s top quality and low in price!

1.  Foundation

Product – Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation
Price – £6.99

This foundation is perfect if you’re looking for something that provides more coverage than your usual skin tint. Light weight and available in a range of colours. This foundation provides a medium coverage and is available in both matte and dewy finishes.

2. Highlight/Illuminator

Product- NYX  Liquid Illuminator
Price – £8.00

This illuminator is lightweight and multifunctional that leaves your skin with that natural sun kissed glow. Available in four colours this product is amazing for anyone who loves that extra summer glow look as it can be used as both a foundation AND a highlight! You can also use it on the chest area to you fancy being extra ✨but be aware – a small amount goes a long way 

3. Mascara

Product – L’Oréal Miss Baby Roll Mascara
Price – £7.99

This mascara is an absolute miracle! If you have short stubby lashes like me then this mascara is defiantly worth checking out. Leaving no clumps this gave me lashes that reaches the sky and is a definite must for me. I didn’t find that it curls my lashes however, I use a lash curler beforehand to give me some extra lift but this is still amazing for anyone wanting to achieve a longer, fuller lash look.

4. Brows

Product – Maybelline Brow Precise Fibre Filler
Price – £6.99

This product has literally saved my life. I have really sparse brows from over plucking but this guy changed the game! Easy to apply this product helps fill in any sparse areas whilst giving you the look of thicker, fuller brows. If you like that Cara Delavigne look then this is for you!

5. Setting Spray

Product – Insta Fix And Go 2 IN 1 Primer
Price – £6.99

I love this product because not only does it work but because again it’s multifunctional which saves me money (who doesn’t love that?) Used as a primer before makeup application and as a setting spray this locks makeup in place which doesn’t budge all day. I like to use this before heading to the gym to help keep my makeup in place and prevent it sweating off. Quick drying and doesn’t leave a tacky base this is great for anyone looking for a cheaper alternative to the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

summer faves

So there you have it that’s my top five drugstore summer essentials although there are many more I could add as well as high end brands but that’s for another post. Remember guys and girls always apply sunscreen when going out in the sun and a little lip balm never hurt anybody!

Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
