Change Your Beauty Regimen for the Season with Makeup Tips!


We’re halfway through the summer season, and that means it’s time to refresh and remix your makeup!

Finding products that will help to keep you looking flawless and fabulous is easy at your Family Dollar. Whether you’re a stay at home mom or a busy on-the-go career woman, keep your beauty regimen updated this month with these budget-friendly makeup finds and easy beauty tips!



Pamper and prep your skin with L’Oreal Ideal Moisture Even Tone Normal Skin Day Lotion ($7.50) It instantly illuminates skin and hydrates for 48 hours, plus it protects your skin from damaging UV rays with 25 SPF.

Here’s a Family Dollar Beauty Tip: For a great way to instantly moisturize, protect, and even out your skin tone, try making your own tinted moisturizer! Just mix this moisturizer with your favorite liquid or cream foundation to give your skin a gorgeous glow with lightweight coverage.

FDBlog-NicoleSkinAugust2 Keep skin effortlessly beautiful by applying coverage that allows the skin to breathe. Try L.A. Colors Wet to Dry Concealer Set ($2.50). This is a great bargain on coverage that can be used wet, and then dries to a powder finish. This duo set also comes with a stick concealer for an easy spot cover application.

A great find for moms and the busy girl-on-the-go is CoverGirl Queen Collection Lasting Matte Pressed Powder ($7.50). Just buff it on in the car or while you’re headed out the door with the Modesa Mini Buffer Brush ($1.00), and you’ve got a flawless finish in seconds

Here’s an Family Dollar Beauty Tip: Wet a Modesa Foundation Sponge Wedge ($1.00) with lukewarm water just to dampen and swipe foundation cream or powder for a smoother, more hydrated finish.

Healthy looking skin and beautiful brows are a must for this season. Try the New York Color Browser Brush-On Brow Kit ($4.00). I love this kit because it includes a grooming wax to keep hairs in place, a brow powder, and mini brush to fill in brows, plus mini tweezers to remove unwanted hairs. Keep your skin glowing even after the summer sun is gone with L.A. Colors Bronzer ($1.00) and highlight your cheeks with L.A. Colors Blush Color & Deluxe Brush ($2.50). 


Here’s a Family Dollar Beauty Tip: To apply your blush in a way that enhances and flatters your face, just smile and apply blush on the apples or highest point of the cheeks. This will give you the perfect blush application every time!

Make those peepers pop with colors that can transition from summer to fall with ease. Playful colors like gold, berry, brown, and blue can be worn everyday to enhance any eye color. Try the L.A. Colors 3 Color Eye Shadow Palette in natural brown ($1.00) to give eyes a soft, everyday natural look.

For a well-blended eye shadow application, try applying your eye shadow with the L.A. Colors Eye Shadow Shadow Shader and Blender Brush Set ($2.35). If you want to amp up your look for an evening out or just for fun, try the L.A. Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Wildflowers ($1.00) 

Here’s a Family Dollar Beauty Tip: Throw on an unexpected pop of color like an electric blue eyeliner from L.A. Colors. It looks great on every skin tone!

Have fun taking a few beauty risks with your makeup by wearing colors that you would usually shy away from. Sometimes you may stumble on some fun and fab finds that will look great on you!

Try Baby Pop Eyeshadow in Lime Green and Brown Mosiacs ($1.00). Finish your eye makeup look with the Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara ($6.00), which gives lashes amazing volume without any clumping! 

Lips need love too! So play them up with vibrant and rich hues that can go from day to evening. Make sure to first moisturize and protect your lips with Blistex Moisture Melt ($1.75). It contains melting beads of shea butter, aloe, and protects with SPF 15.

Right now, the trend is rocking bold and beautiful colors like L.A. Colors Lip Color in Coral Sheen or Berry Ice ($1.00). Add lip gloss over top of your lipstick for extra shine, like L.A. Colors Brilliant Shine Glitter Gloss ($1.00).

Here’s a Family Dollar Beauty Tip: Smiling is a big part of looking beautiful. Whiten your smile for half the price and 100% of the quality with Family Wellness Whitening Dental Strips ($5.00). These strips are great for moms on the go because they’re easy to pop on while running errands, so you can whiten anytime, anywhere!

Beauty accessories are just as important as the makeup you wear. Keep stylish makeup bags on hand for every season.

Right now, the trend in fashion is animal print bags, like the savvy chic Modesa Zebra Print Makeup Zipper Pouch ($2.35).

Here’s a Family Dollar Beauty Tip: Toss your makeup bags in the wash weekly to remove stains inside and out, kill bacteria, and keep you most treasured beauty products traveling in style!
