Cheap Summer Makeup Essentials

“All of these products above total just over $30…”

If you’ve been around for a while, my makeup addiction is no surprise. I’m not a fan of paying big bucks for basic products though, which is why eBay is my best friend when shopping online and comparing prices. All of these products above total just over $30 and could just be all you need in your makeup bag. So whether you’re just starting out with a collection of makeup, or you are a cheap shopper (like me!) eBay just might be the source for you. Let’s look at these products:

1. 88 Matte Palette
This palette is essential in your collection. Makeup artists, beauty gurus, and YouTubers alike all rave about this palette, and I have to admit, it’s a great one to have on hand. I keep it out on my vanity and grab it whenever I feel like changing up colours… because just look at it, it has every colour imaginable… AND the quality is great! Very pigmented and fine, and it blends great. Definitely pick this one up.
Regular price: $18.95
eBay: $9.56 – Get it

2. NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
I’ve raved about this before and I will keep doing it until the cows come home. I use this as a primer for eyeshadow every single day. I love it so much more than other primers because it is white and doesn’t crease. I spread it all over my lid up to my eyebrows before shadow. The whiteness really makes your colours pop (like a blank canvas), and the eyeliner makes your shadow stay put all day long. No touchups!
Regular Price: $4.50
eBay: $3.19 – Get it

3. Smashbox Lip Gloss in Desire
This is the perfect pinky neutral shade for summer. Pop it into your purse and go. And you can’t beat the price…
eBay: $4.99 – Get it

4. Essie Nail Polish in It’s Delicate
I love this shade. It’s a pink neutral and would look fabulous for hot summer days and can double as a more sophisticated colour as well. A day to night polish.
Regular price: $8.99
eBay: $4.14 with free shipping – Get it

5. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero
A perfect black eyeliner is so versatile, and essential in any makeup kit. This one is creamy and slides on smooth while lasting all day long.
Regular price: $19.00
eBay: $4.95 – Get it

6. E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick in Toasted
Use this as a quick bronzer or highlighter and you’re good to go! Apply a bit to your cheeks or try contouring if that’s your thing. This little stick has some great reviews and is a cheap way to get a bronze glow.
eBay: $3.25 with free shipping – Get it

So there you go, some essential summer makeup on the cheap! eBay is one of my fav places to search before checking out at a retail store. What else would you fill your makeup bag with for summer?
