Beautiful on a Budget - Summer Beauty Must-Have's Under $20

We are on the cusp of Summer here in the Northeast part of the country. You guy's, you don't even know how excited I am to type that! Winter had a {seemingly} never-ending grip on us here this year. So,  I am beyond thrilled to soak up some sunshine and warmer temps with my family over the next few months!
My beauty regime is pretty laid back and simple during the Summer months. Most day's you won't catch me with more than some bronzer, mascara, and tinted lip balm or lip gloss. I always make sure to wear my sunscreen though - I am trying to graciously fight the aging process, you know? Plus, the health risks totally aren't worth it!
My top beauty picks for Summer are completely budget friendly -  and all are under $20.  So you can look  great -  and still have enough left over to feed and clothe the kiddo's this Summer!

1. Aveeno Positively Nourishing Calming Lotion ($6) Keeps skin healthy, hydrated and soft. This light (non-greasy) formula keeps skin hydrated throughout the day and has a light, soothing, lavender scent.
2. Love Me Knot elastic headbands & hairbands ($12) I love these knot elastic hairbands and headbands! They keep hair in place and out of your face in warmer temps - without leaving dents in your hairline. They come in tons of pretty colors and fashionable patterns/prints too!
3.Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Bronzer, Sunrise Glow 70 ($11). This fabulous bronzer leaves skin looking healthy and sun-kissed - eliminating the need for unhealthy exposure to the sun. It also includes a blend of antioxidants which is great for the long-term health and appearance of your skin.
4. Gillette Satin Care with a Touch of Olay Shave Gel ($3) I am a big fan of Olay products and I love how silky smooth this shave gel leaves your skin. With the incredible price point - this one is a total no-brainer!
5.  Aquaphor Lip Repair + SPF 30. We love the healing magic {as my kiddo's like to call it} of Aquaphor - and now it's available in this great little tube of Lip Repair. It heals and protects {with SPF 30+}.
6. Neutrogena Beach Defense Water + Sun Barrier Sunscreen Stick, SPF, 50+  - How Great is this little {mess-free} stick of sunscreen? I really like this grease free formula and the portability of the packaging. I can easily pop this in my purse without fearing that I will ruin all of the contents with a leak.
7. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara ($18) This is the lightest clump-free mascara that I have EVER come across - I  seriously love it. If I only put one piece of makeup on to run out the door for a gallon of milk - this is it!
8. Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer ($5) These natural lip shimmer's are a daily go-to in my makeup bag. They come in a variety of pretty colors and you just can't beat the price!
9. essie 2014 Resort Collection  ($8.50 ea. ) These pretty  colors evoke relaxing thoughts of vacation and fun! I love the whole collection , but my favorite is "resort fling" (3rd from left-pictured above.)
